Refreshed with mild updates for model-year 2020, pricing for the Toyota Tundra half-ton pickup truck is now available. The most significant changes to the 2020 model are the inclusion of the standard Toyota Safety Sense P bundle of active safety systems (forward collision and lane departure warnings, active cruise control and automatic high beams) along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity on every trim level. The 2020 Tundra also does away with the 4.6-liter V-8 in lower trims; all models come standard with the tried-and-true 5.7-liter V-8 and a six-speed automatic transmission. Output figures for the 5.7 are unchanged from the 2019 model at 381 horsepower and 401 pounds-feet of torque.
Multimedia screens are now bigger as well, with 7-inch screens in lower trim levels while higher trims get 8-inch displays. Finally, the TRD Pro model can once again be had in a double-cab configuration, the first time that has been available since the 2017 model year.
These changes do come with a cost, however. Fortunately, the destination fee for the 2020 Tundra is unchanged from the 2019 model, but it still clocks in at a fairly hefty $1,595. Check out the breakdown of each configuration's price for 2020 below (all prices include the destination fee) with its corresponding increase over the 2019 version. Common upgrade costs include $3,050 to add four-wheel drive, $330 to add a long bed on double-cab (aka extended cab) SR and SR5 trim levels and either $1,865 (Limited), $2,605 (SR5) or $4,275 (TRD Pro) to upgrade from a double cab to a crew cab (CrewMax in Toyota parlance). Platinum and 1794 Edition models are only available as crew cabs. Expect to see the 2020 Toyota Tundra on dealer lots later in August.

Both the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 start at roughly $30,000, but those are regular-cab models. The Ram 1500 is more closely priced to the Tundra to start, but all three competitors also offer much greater variety in terms of engine choices and can reach prices greater than $60,000 — the Ford can easily crest .

If you're set on buying a Tundra and don't want the tech and safety features, a 2019 or earlier may net you a solid deal. If you can wait a little longer, a much-needed redesign complete with a new body-on-frame platform has been spied testing and is expected on the market as a 2021 model.
