2018 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia TRD Sport models storm Chicago Auto Show
Here at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota has debuted new TRD Sport trim levels for its Tundra pick up truck and Sequoia large SUV, which are both slated to arrive for the 2018 model year.
For the Tundra TRD Sport, Toyota will offer it in 4X2 and 4X4 configurations with power coming from a 5.7 liter V8 making 381 horsepower.
To improve handling, Bilstein shock absorbers and upgraded anti-roll bars are installed.
When it comes to styling the truck gets body colored mirrors, bumpers, a hood scoop and mesh grill, LED headlights and bedside graphics.
20 inch silver aluminum wheels and black accents complete the exterior changes.
On the inside upgrades are on the sparse side with only a charity shift knob and special floor mats.
On the aging Sequoia the addition of the TRD Sport version is a small shot in the arm for a model that hasn't had a complete makeover since 2008.
Like the Tundra the Sequoia TRD sport can be had as a 4 by 2 and 4 by 4 with power coming from a 5.7 liter V8.
While suspension changes also consist of [UNKNOWN] shocks and [INAUDIBLE] row bars.
Visually the TRD sport trim freshens the outside of the Sequoia with a new grill and bump.
Back mirror caps 20 inch black wheels, smoked tail lights, and badging.
For the cabin, black fabric seats are standard, while black leather is available as an option.
Other alterations consist of TRD Sill Protectors, shift knob, and TRD Sport Floormats.
On the technology front, all 2018 Tundra's and Sequoia's will come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense Suite of Equipment.
That includes lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, and automatic hi-beam.
If either of these slightly more stylish and capable TRD Sport trucks interest you, look for both of them to arrive in dealers this September.
