2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Debuts
Unveiled in Chicago, the 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport raises the profile and enhances the dynamics of the automaker’s full-size pickup. It will benefit from upgrades across the entire lineup. Powered by the 5.7-liter/381-horsepower i-Force V8, this newcomer will be available in 4x2 and 4x4 CrewMax and Double Cab configurations.
Like the current off-road focused TRD Pro which will carry on for 2018, the more street-oriented TRD Sport features a suspension package featuring TRD Sport Tuned Bilstein shocks and TRD front/rear anti-sway bars. Available in Super White, Magnetic Gray, Midnight Black Pearl, Blazing Blue Pearl and Barcelona Red Metallic, the TRD Sport models have body color front/rear fascias, matching hood scoop, mirror caps and surround for the mesh grille. Also included are LED headlamps with black surrounds, LED daytime running lamps and black-accented 20-inch silver alloy wheels as well as TRD Sport graphics on the side of the bed. Inside, the cabins gain a TRD shift knob and TRD Sport floor mats.
Regardless of trim level, all 2018 Tundras will bolster their standard Toyota Star Safety kit with the more sophisticated Toyota Safety Sense (TSS-P) suite of driver assists that includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Auto High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. In addition to a new mesh grille on several variants, the Tundra Limited and 1794 Edition get their own billet-style option. While new halogen headlamps and LED DRLs grace the face of 2018 Tundra SR, SR5 and TRD Pro models, the Limited, Platinum and 1794 join the TRD Sport in adding LED headlamps and DRLs. Pricing for the complete 2018 Toyota Tundra lineup will be released closer to its actual on-sale date.
