Led by the available 5.7L i-FORCE V8 engine that offers up to 10,200 pounds of towing capacity and a maximum payload of 1,730 pounds, the 2019 Tundra tackles the jobsite, a weekend cruise to the lake, or the long family road trip.
Tundra is offered in a range of configurations in two styles for 2019: the four-door Double Cab and the super-sized four-door CrewMax. Within those configurations are six model grades: the SR; volume-leading SR5; well-equipped Limited; the off-road flagship TRD Pro; and two premium grades, the luxurious Platinum and unique, and equally luxurious, 1794 Edition.
The 2019 Tundra continues with a choice of two available i-Force V8 engines. The standard 4.6-liter i-Force V8 produces 310 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 327 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,400 rpm. The popular 5.7-liter creates 381 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 401 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,600 rpm. All Tundra models are equipped with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.
The foundation of Tundra's strength and 10,200-pound max towing capacity is its TripleTech frame. "Triple" refers to the wide, full-boxed rails for the front portion, a reinforced C-channel under the cab and an open C-channel beneath the bed for strength, ride quality, and durability.
Gauges are grouped in a clear, easy-to-see design, and there's a center-mounted multi-information display screen. The dash's large knobs can be operated while wearing gloves, and the console offers multiple storage areas for personal items and electronics. All models come with standard Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. Likewise, all have a standard windshield wiper de-icer, front and rear mudguards, power windows and door locks, and heated and power outside mirrors.
