2020 Toyota Tundra Gets Light Refresh and Upgrades


In keeping with Toyota's mild-refresh theme for the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the long-neglected full-size Toyota Tundra pickup truck will receive some small but much-needed changes for the 2020 model year. Some, however, are just for the premiere TRD Pro trim — but we fully expect to see these and other small changes make it to all the other trims eventually.

The biggest news for Toyota's steady-selling half-ton pickup is that the touchscreen for navigation is now larger (depending on trim package): Lower trim levels get a 7-inch screen and upper trim levels get an 8-inch screen. In addition to an updated telematics/multimedia system, all trims now include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Other small changes made to the 2020 Tundra lineup include the addition of keyless entry technology and push-button start on all models. The Tundra TRD Pro was offered as an extended cab and crew cab in 2017, was discontinued for 2018, and returned for 2019 in CrewMax crew-cab-only form. For 2020, the extended-cab Double-Cab TRD Pro is making a return to the lineup.

The Tundra changes are part of a larger mid-cycle refresh strategy Toyota seems to be executing on all its SUVs and pickups, with the both 2020 Sequoia and 4Runner benefiting from new packages and upgrades, and the 2020 .
