About a week ago, I was fortunate to spend some time with the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax.
The TRD Pro trim level was released to the Tundra back in 2015. Originally spec’d with some Bilstein shocks, TRD Pro’s like this Tundra now get some off road ready FOX shocks, a TRD skid plate, Rigid Industries fog lights, and a TRD dual exhaust. Much of the standard Toyota Tundra remains such as its 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque V8 engine which gets to breath through that TRD exhaust.
I could go on and on about how great a TRD Pro trimmed Tundra is, but with so many reviews out there I thought why not scrap that and give you some information you probably haven’t read before - how loud it is. As the video above shows you, I grabbed my trusty decibel meter and found out.
I set up the decibel meter to read the maximum db and put it on the ground about a foot away from the exhaust at about a 45 degree angle. This is basically how an officer of the law would read your exhaust. In my case, I was going for three different audible levels: start up/idle, revving and holding it at 3500 rpm, and redline which is 6000 rpm on the Tundra.
Check out the video to get the numbers.
