Toyota released updates today for its 2019 Tundra pickup which includes the return of its TRD Pro.
The latest TRD Pro features new Fox Internal Bypass shocks at all four corners, Rigid Industries fog lights, and new forged aluminum BBS wheels. There’s also more personalization available with the new SX package that offers a unique blend of parts and styling.
SX package offers additional customization
Personalization is an important option for truck owners, and for 2019 the new SX package will provide Tundra buyers with color-keyed accents and unique styling cues to make it stand out from the crowd.
Based on the SR5 Double Cab, the SX package adds front bucket seats, color-keyed front grille surrounds, front bumper end caps and rear bumper, 18-inch black alloy wheels and the removal of all exterior badging. The SX package will be offered on SR5 Double Cab models in Super White, Midnight Black Metallic, and Barcelona Red Metallic, and it is currently available in dealerships.
Introduced in 2018, the TRD Sport offers another uniquely styled package. The TRD Sport gets its own look with body-color surround for the grille, color-keyed mirrors, bumpers and hood scoop, and it rides on 20-inch silver-painted aluminum alloy wheels.
Based on the SR5, the Sport package dons upgraded LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and LED fog lights. It also benefits from performance upgrades such as TRD anti-sway bars and sport-tuned TRD Bilstein shocks. A TRD shift knob and floormats complete the look inside, and a TRD bedside graphic focuses attention on the truck’s exterior. The TRD Sport is available in Super White, Magnetic Gray, Midnight Blue Metallic, Blazing Blue Pearl and Barcelona Red Metallic.
The TRD Off-Road package adds upgrades for off-highway driving. Trail-tuned monotube Bilstein shock absorbers are employed to soak up bumps. Wheels are upgraded to 18-inch split five-spoke allow wheels wrapped in P275/65R18 tires. LED headlights and LED fog lights are added on SR5 models, and 4×2 models are updated with engine and fuel tank skid plates and tow hooks (already standard equipment on 4x4s). TRD Off-Road floor mats and a TRD Off-Road bedside decal helps complete the look.
The Return of TRD Pro
The 2019 Tundra TRD Pro gets new Fox 2.5-inch front shocks and TRD-tuned springs that provide an additional two inches of front lift. Front wheel travel has been increased more than 1.5 inches.
Out back, 2.5-inch Fox internal bypass shocks feature piggyback reservoirs to ensure consistent damping performance in the toughest terrain. The suspension changes net increased rear wheel travel of more than 2 inches.
Tundra TRD Pro gets new Rigid Industries LED fog lights for improved visibility on and off the highway. A new TOYOTA grille is found up front along with a new hood scoop. New 18-inch BBS forged-aluminum, five-spoke satin black wheels are featured on the Tundra, which reduce un-sprung mass 3.35 lbs. per wheel (13.4 lbs. total) to improve cornering response and overall ride quality. The new wheels are fitted with Michelin P275/65R18 all-terrain tires.
Outside, black badging is featured throughout, and TRD Pro is stamped on the bed’s rear quarter panels. Inside, TRD Pro logos garnish the driver and front passenger leather seats, while red stitching accents the dash, seats and armrests. Moonroof is also standard for 2019. TRD Pro floor mats, shift knob and a center-console emblem help complete the distinctive look. Providing added growl on the highway and the trail is a dual TRD Pro exhaust, which is fitted with new Black Chrome exhaust tips. A TRD Pro 1/4-inch skid plate sporting signature red Toyota lettering is found underneath the front end.
Tundra TRD Pro is available in CrewMax only and will be offered in three colors that include Super White, Midnight Black Metallic and the exclusive TRD Pro color Voodoo Blue.
