The news about 2019 Toyota Tundra is spreading around with few new images. As is usual for Toyota, we do not anticipate a game-changing overhaul, but the automaker has planned a well-conceived upgrade of everything that works.
Despite the fact that the Tundra model was revised lately, the design of the inbound vehicle looks nothing like its immediate forerunner. Instead, it appears to share a lot of components with the latest Tacoma model. The two trucks feature a similar hexagonal grille along with swept-back lights at the front facade. The only difference is that the Tundra is more prominent and boasts a revised hood-scoop and bumper.

The truck once again achieves a new platform featuring a redesigned suspension. All these revisions aim to accomplish a better ride quality coupled with enhanced handling.
The 2019 Toyota Tundra is thought to include a high-strength steel boxed frame, which is significantly lighter and stiffer than the earlier edition. Our renderings indicate that the next Tundra receives a revamped grille comprising more chrome and a conspicuous Toyota emblem. Furthermore, we also expect larger wheels, though our spy shots have kept them on the wraps.
The current 18-inch rollers remain the largest wheels ever equipped on the Tundra. On the contrary, most of its rivals supply 20-inch wheels on top-tier editions with 22-inch rollers being availed as an option at the dealership.

Of course, this mill will have what it takes to boost both power and efficiency. All engines pair with either a 6-speed automatic gearbox system or manual shifting mode.
