We spent a week in the Toyota Tundra and did our best to test out every feature possible. We truly enjoyed this truck and felt like the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is a dream to own and drive. Read on to check out the specs .

The 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is a Dream
My husband had been begging for the last two years to get into a Toyota pickup. Finally, we were able to get our hands on one and it was such a dream to drive and enjoy for the week. We had high expectations for the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and walked away from the experience fully satiated.
My husband and I have driven big trucks and SUVs for basically the last 20 years. We have had nearly every single brand of full size pickup on the market…except the Toyota and we were ready to test this baby out as best we could under the current state of the world.
Toyota Tundra Exterior
This truck is a beauty. Seriously the army green color and blacked out features with a hood scoop bring give this truck a sleek and tough look. It stands out on the road and although it looks like a big bad truck, it sure doesn’t handle like one.
Equipped with Rigid LED lights, and all the safety features you would expect on a Toyota, this pick up is not your average truck. Boasting Toyota Safety Sense with the pre-collision system, radar cruise control, lane departure alerts and more, you can be sure that the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is built to protect.
Those 18 inch forged BBS® wheels reduce mass and improve how this truck handles and boy does this truck handle. It also comes with the Fox suspension that makes this Tundra TRD Pro great for off roading and you guys, it doesn’t throw you around the cab when you are taking in some of that rugged terrain.
This Truck Is Built to Haul
We wanted to originally hook our 30 foot camping trailer to this bad boy and take off to the mountains for some fun, but that wasn’t happening with the ‘Rona, so we picked up a few hundred pounds of quartz instead. This truck is truly built to haul and has built in trailer brake control, TOW/Haul mode and is able to pull over 10,000 lbs without breaking a sweat. We will totally be requesting this truck again to test out that haul capacity for sure!
I do have to say that I absolutely loved how easy this truck was to load. That liftgate is lightweight and smooth to open and close. There are built in places to step on the bumper to get into the bed if needed and the bed linger kept our cargo from sliding around.
Interior Features of the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro
I LOVE this interior. When we had the Toyota Sequoia TRD last year, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the interior, but Toyota made some improvements to their TRD interior package and it for sure was noticed. They kept their super soft leather, but added in more of the luxury features that I personally feel are a must in a $48,000 car.
Plenty of cup holders and storage space in this truck and well, just space in general. The Toyota Tundra has a seriously spacious cabin which allows for you to get comfy and enjoy the ride. I loved the steering wheel of this truck. It had everything you needed to adjust right from that captains chair without taking your eyes off the road and that soft leather trim that felt so good on my hands.
Give me ALL the Apple CarPlay, climate control, power everything, push button starts and multi-information displays. The tech on this Tundra is elevated and runs flawlessly. Also it is a good omen when the first song that pops on the radio for your drive is a little Brittney. I ain’t even complaining, I just felt like this truck could sense my style and we blasted that JBL system for sure.
The leather and trim in this truck is pretty. I am NOT a fan of black interior at all, but I will say that I do love that Toyota uses some high quality soft leather and that they have begun to incorporate the contrast red stitching into their vehicles. It looks so good and really adds a pop of color to this sleek interior.
Fresh air for days. You can roll down every window in this truck (except the windshield) and soak in those UV rays. The sun roof was wonderful to have open on these warm spring days and my husband loved that rear power window.
Did I mention that this truck is spacious and built to haul. Yup, that includes even in the cabin. The fold up rear seats are easy to adjust and make it super simple to put cargo inside the cabin too.
I did enjoy having the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro for the week . We were able to test it out in snow, rain, a quick midnight drive up the mountains and a little transport of precious cargo. I wish we could have had the ability to hook our camper up and really give this truck a thorough check out on the towing capabilities, but I will say that I am confident that Toyota has built a system to handle good capacity.
I want to be fully transparent and say that I had hoped that I would not like this truck. My husband is already eyeing a new pick up truck and I was really hoping that we would not find the features in the TRD to be what we were looking for, but as a Toyota family (we own several), it was only a matter of time. However, until we can test that towing in the mountains, I am not fully sold. Overall, the truck was great, it had everything we would want and a bit more in a pick up and it is pretty too!
