Toyota management is definitely aware of the fact that most competitors of their full-size truck are much younger. In order to keep their model fresh and interesting to buyers, various versions have been considered. It looks like we are about to see one of them in the offer.
It will come as the 2019 Toyota Tundra Baja, inspired by the famous off-road race, where Toyota competes constantly. For this occasion, we are about to see a lot of modifications compared to the standard models. Count on both visual and mechanical upgrades. On the other side, things should remain pretty much the same under the hood.
- Excellent off-road performances
- Upgraded suspension
- Distinctive styling
- Naked, race-like interior
- Same output as in standard versions
- Poor fuel economy
Of course, the most notable changes will come in terms of the exterior design. We are pretty sure that the new 2019 Toyota Tundra Baja will share most of its mechanics with the TRD Pro, which is one of the most capable trucks around, along with the Ford F-150 Raptor.
For this occasion, the company will probably come with further upgrades, with new suspension and similar things. We count on a fine number of aesthetical upgrades as well. This includes things like new unique color combinations, exterior graphics and similar things, all inspired by the famous racing model. Also, count on distinctive wheels and other similar details.
This aspect of the 2019 Toyota Tundra Baja is still a bit of a mystery. Considering that we are still waiting to see some images of the new model, most reports about the interior design are nothing more
According to these rumors, there is a big chance to see a stripped version of the Tundra, free of any unnecessary parts, with a race-focused cabin look. Still, we are pretty sure that the company won’t go too far and that drivers of this truck will enjoy all the conveniences of a modern truck.
When it comes to the powertrain, we have no doubt that the 2019 Toyota Tundra Baja will continue with a familiar V8 engine under the hood. Of course, we are talking about the bigger, 5.7-liter unit, which delivers around 380 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
This engine comes in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission and there is a chance to see a couple of tweaks on the 4WD system and the rest of the drivetrain system.
2019 Toyota Tundra Baja Release Date and Price
Keep in mind that we are still waiting for the official confirmation of the 2019 Toyota Tundra Baja. So, we can only speculate about the release date and price of the new model. Most likely, it will hit the market this spring, while details about the price are still unknown.
