If you find yourself carrying heavy loads in life, whether it is for work or for leisure activities, then you may be looking for the kind of vehicle that can lend you a helping hand. Enter the 2020 Toyota Tundra in San Francisco, CA. The Tundra is the brand’s full-size pickup truck offering, giving drivers a rugged yet refined vehicle to rule the roadways.
Six Tundra models are on the offering: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro. Between these trims, you’ll be able to select from Double Cab or CrewMax cab styles, a short bed or long bed, and 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrains. Let’s dig a little deeper into this powerful and versatile pickup truck.
All Tundra models are equipped with a mighty 5.7-liter Aluminum I-FORCE V8 engine capable of delivering 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque.
When properly equipped, the 2020 Toyota Tundra can haul a payload of up to 1,730 pounds, giving you plenty of options for loading that sturdy truck bed.
When the 2020 Tundra is properly equipped, you can tow up to 10,200 pounds in 4x2 Double Cab models, which is useful for work and for play.
The available integrated Trailer Brake Controller (IBTC) and the standard Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) give you extra assistance when towing a heavy trailer behind you. These systems can help you adjust the amount of trailer braking needed and can help to control any swaying of the trailer while you’re on windy and winding roads. You can also take advantage of the available deck rail system, which consists of four tie-down cleats that are adjustable and can each handle 220 pounds to give your truck bed cargo that much more security along the way.
Of course, what’s inside the 2020 Tundra is important as well, and you’ll be greeted with an interior that is tailored for your driving needs. The rear seats can fold up to give you a bit more versatility when you want to store some items behind the front row. The class-exclusive available power vertical window lets you roll that rear window down all the way with just a push of a button, letting that crisp California air in on those long road trips.
Whether you have an Android operating system or prefer the Apple way of running things, you can connect a compatible smartphone to the truck thanks to its standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility, which gives you access to hands-free calling and messaging as well as a number of other select applications.
