The all-new 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is about to introduce further updates. Whatsoever, we can say this is a new chapter for the full-size Tundra and its top-of-the-range trim level. Some of the upgrades are significant and basically, all trim levels will suffer the same refinements. Tundra will introduce a new platform so the hybrid powertrain is a possibility for this model.
In terms of exterior design, Tundra TRD Pro looks very impressive and aggressive. The interior will gain more high-tech features and more safety aids. Even some changes under the shell will happen too so Tundra will be heavily refreshed in general.
The upcoming 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will arrive with various exterior upgrades. So far, we’ve seen spy shots of the base trim level. On the other hand, TRD Pro is a completely different story as it is the range-topping trim level. However, many reports are suggesting the same or at least similar upgrades for all of the trim levels. Toyota plans to change the vehicle’s appearance and the spy shots are the latest proof. The new platform is available so Tundra could grow in size, but not significantly.
Moreover, the Japanese automaker will introduce a new rear suspension. Thanks to that, new bodywork and improved aerodynamics, Tundra TRD Pro will provide better ride quality and fuel efficiency. The front fascia will most likely sport new headlights and more aggressive grille. Off-road tires, skid plates, and other off-road equipment will be available as standard.
On the inside, the new 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will look luxurious and modern. After all, it is the most expensive trim level that Tundra has to offer. Imagine everything one pickup can offer at the moment. TRD Pro is exactly that. Most of the premium features are offered as standard. Moreover, the cabin hosts plenty of high-quality materials and it offers larger displays.
Premium audio system and similar amenities make the cabin feels SUV-like. The infotainment system is up to date while the seating layout won’t change. However, the new Tundra will be longer so expect even more generous room on the inside. Toyota’s latest Safety Sense suite will be offered as standard and expect the highest safety ratings once again.

Under the hood, 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will offer a powerful 5.7-liter V8 gasoline powertrain. This engine is capable of producing 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, it comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. Its fuel economy has been rated at 15 mpg combined which isn’t that great, even for the full-size segment.
The latest information is strongly suggesting a hybrid powertrain. Whatsoever, a new platform is proving that. However, we don’t know if the hybrid system will become available in the TRD Pro version. Reliable sources are saying the hybrid variant will deliver 400 horsepower and up to 500 lb-ft of torque.
