Josh has a 2020 Toyota Tundra for towing something sweet!

In this episode of, “Dude, I Love (or Hate) my new Ride” @HomeEdition, we get to see Josh’s brand new 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport and his 1969 Mustang. Yep, he uses his new truck to tow his Mustang.

Josh was deployed overseas and had to order his Tundra online. His wife picked it up because he had to enter quarantine upon returning. He hasn’t added too much, other than some beefy seat covers (he has a baby and dogs) and a bed cover. Other than that, the truck came loaded with TRD equipment.

His wife’s ’08 Toyota Tacoma was the designated tow vehicle for this sweet ’69 Mustang. According to Josh, “It wasn’t happy.” Now he has a beefy Tundra which should have no problems towing this at all.

The 2020 Toyota Tundra has a 381 horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 that makes 401 lb-ft of torque. It’s hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This setup allows him to tow his classic car with ease. Especially when compared with his wife’s older Toyota Tacoma which used to haul it.

Towing for the 2020 Toyota Tundra ranges from 8,800 – 10,200 lbs.

Josh takes us through the truck noting some of the extra details he seems to like. Keep in mind, this truck was a special order. It had to be special ordered as its trim and color (Voodoo Blue) combination is hard to find. Usually, a truck like this MSRPs in the low $50,000 range. Josh got his for about $39,000. That’s mighty impressive, considering what he got for the money.

We are grateful for this awesome video and for people like Josh. Your service is greatly appreciated.
