2018 Tundra: The TRD Sport Addition


What can you expect from the new 2018 Tundra, anyway? Well, if we learn anything from Chicago international Auto Show, there are some updates to consider about. For a starter, the line will get a light and mild cosmetic improvement. And the pickup will also get the additional TRD Sport, which is claimed to come with the important features and handy (and also fun) abilities.

For the new 2018 Tundra, Toyota claims that besides the facelift work on the regular Tundra variant, they will also add the TRD Sport trim which will be better and more responsive in the handle. For the TRD Sport line, the available colors will be Red Barcelona Metallic, White Super, Black Midnight Pearl, Gray Magnetic, and Blue Blazing Pearl. The interior cabin will be a bit different than the regular model – a reminder that this is the TRD Sport line, not the regular one.

What can you expect from the new 2018 Tundra TRD Sport variant, anyway? It will come with body colored grille, hood scoop, and also bumper. There will be redesigned LED headlights and other minor tweaks. For the engine, this one will be coming with V8 true engine with 5.7 liter capacity that is delivering 381 hp of power and 401 Nm of torque. With the combination of sway bars on the front and back, as well as Bilstein sport tuned shocks, the TRD Sport line will have a better onroad ability.

For the regular line of the Tundra, expect new grille as well as improved Total Safety Sense technology for the standard feature. In Total Safety Sense, you can expect the pedestrian detection system with pre collision technology, lane departure alert, dynamic radar cruise control, and such thing alike.

Toyota hasn’t released any official confirmation, especially the details of their improvements and updates. However, it is clear that they are working on something but they just don’t want to inform it to the world just yet.

Just like the detailed specs of the ride, Toyota hasn’t made any official release about the new Tundra although it is pretty clear that they are quite confident with the current work and development.  Release date and price haven’t been mentioned but it is predicted that they may introduce this 2018 model by the end of 2017. The price for 2018 Tundra shouldn’t be too far away from the current one either.
