What features come standard on the 2020 Toyota Tundra?
The SR is the 2020 Toyota Tundra’s base model and it is available in rear-wheel or four-wheel drive configurations, with options of a short or long bed. All Tundras come with a 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
As with all Tundras, the SR comes standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense suite of technology.

But other standard safety features include a backup camera, vehicle stability control, smart-stop technology, brake assist, traction control, trailer-sway control, and an integrated trailer brake controller.
But the new Tundra doesn’t just come with a lot of standard safety features. According to Car and Driver, you’ll get a new, standard, 5.7-liter eight-cylinder engine that makes up to 401 hp. It’s paired to a six-speed automatic transmission that features uphill/downhill shift logic technology. RWD Tundras come with an automatic, limited-slip differential, while 4WD Tundras also receive an electronically-controlled transfer case. The SR trim also comes standard with heated power mirrors, an easy lower-and-lift tailgate, and an independent coil-spring suspension.
Base Tundra SR models are made with a ground clearance of 10.6 inches and standard 18-inch wheels and all-season tires. The SR has a maximum payload rating of between 1,630-1,700 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 9,900-10,100 lbs (depending on body configuration).

What do you get with upper trims?
There are six total Tundra models, each with its own features and advantages. A step above the SR base model is the SR5, available in three different bed-lengths. The SR5 gets all the same standard features, but upgraded, 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, and chrome accents on the exterior. You’ll also get front tow hooks, upgraded intermittent windshield wipers, and access to a larger variety of available options. The SR5 also comes with a sliding rear window, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, storage under the rear seat, and a larger, 8-inch touchscreen on the interior.
Upgrade to a Limited or Platinum Tundra and you’ll have fewer choices in bed-lengths, but more standard features. Both come with LED headlights and fog lights and superior chrome, exterior accents. Deck rail systems and individual exteriors badges also come standard on the Limited and Platinum trims. You’ll also get a larger, 38-gallon fuel tank, automatic dual-zone climate control, and leather-trimmed seats. The interior comes with an 8-inch touchscreen with Premium Audio and Dynamic Navigation. Both the Limited and Premium Tundra models come with lower payload/towing capacities but offer upgraded 20-inch wheels.
The special, 1794 Edition Tundra comes in a Western-themed design, leather seating, and every other standard feature you’d expect. The highest Tundra variant available is the TRD Pro, which is only available in 4WD, in crew or double cab body styles.
