If you need a truck to do some serious off-roading, the Ford Raptor is the weapon of choice for most folks. But if you wanted something a different, Toyota will offer a Tundra TRD Pro for the 2019 model year, but it’s not cheap with a starting price of $51,275.
We really liked the 2017 Tundra TRD Pro. It was a solid overall package if you were looking for an “old school” truck. The upgraded 2019 Tundra looks like a nice improvement over the previous generation.
Our friends at Cars Direct.com got the scoop on the 2019 TRD Pro’s price.
Toyota’s latest pricing sheets show the 2019 TRD Pro CrewMax will start at $51,275 including destination, $3,870 more than it did in 2017, the most recent year the Pro version was offered. At the time, the style started at $47,405.
Interestingly, a Double Cab version of the Pro isn’t listed even though it was offered previously. A spokesperson for Toyota confirmed for us today that the Pro will only be sold as a CrewMax model for 2019.
At $51,275, the Pro starts awfully close to the 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor, which has an MSRP of $52,170 for the SuperCab and $55,155 for the SuperCrew. The 2019 Raptor is getting a beefier setup, but pricing hasn’t been announced.
Senior Pricing analyst Alex Bernstein explains that while the TRD has a starting price that is pretty close to the Raptor, the Toyota only comes in CrewMax version with the four full-size doors. If you wanted a Raptor with the same setup you would be looking at a price difference of $3,880
Furthermore, good luck finding a Raptor without some bonkers dealer markup.
The 2019 Tundra TRD Pro may not be as extreme as the Raptor but it’s likely easier to live with as a daily driver and even with its fairly hefty price tag you are getting a lot of truck for your money.
