For 2020, the Tundra will get keyless entry and push-button start for the TRD Pro trim level, which brings remote start capability to the aging half ton. This addition is a long time coming, since competitors have offered these features for several years.
Another welcome change since the current-generation Tundra was refreshed in 2014 is the addition on the TRD Pro of a larger 8-inch color touchscreen to control the climate, audio and navigation systems. A premium JBL premium sound system is now available for the Tundra TRD Pro, too. The new touchscreen brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
Another significant, value-packed change for the 2020 Tundra is that the TRD Pro can be had in double-cab or CrewMax configurations. Previously, the popular TRD Pro was offered with the largest — and most expensive — CrewMax cab. We’re told the double-cab model will offer a significant discount.
The 2020 Tundra TRD Pro will go on sale in late summer, with pricing announce shortly before.
