Toyota Sequoia, Tundra TRD Sport models toughen up

Toyota, aiming for a bigger slice of a robust light-truck market, is targeting outdoor and performance enthusiasts with new trims for the Tundra full-size pickup, Sequoia large SUV, and RAV4 crossover.

As for new the Tundra and Sequoia packages, Toyota is taking the racing-focused capabilities of its TRD Pro lineup and tweaking them for the trails. This model's camouflaged front end makes it appear that the revisions will be far less comprehensive than the ones the truck received for 2014. The Tundra gets a new mesh grille insert on some trims and a new billet-style grille on the 1794 Edition.

All 2018 Sequoia models benefit from a new face, a welcome change given that this huge sport-utility vehicle has been wearing the same mug with no perceptible change since a 2008 update.

Inside, it has special trim panels, floor mats and sill plates, as well as a 120 volt power outlet in the cargo bay. It also gets the Toyota Safety Sense system. Both come in 4x4 or 4x2, though most buyers will take the former, with a 5.7-liter V-8 engine. The Sequoia and Tundra also ride on TRD-tuned Bilstein shock absorbers and TRD anti-roll bars. The TRD doodads are in addition to the across-the-board aesthetic updates across the board for 2018 Tundra and Sequoia models, along with advanced safety features that now come standard. The new Toyota Sequoia TRD and Tundra TRD follow that formula, while also boosting towing capacity and comfort, the maker said as it lifted the covers on the two new models.

Both the front-drive and all-wheel-drive versions will feature a standard tow-prep package with an upgraded radiator and supplemental coolers for engine oil and transmission fluid.

For the exterior there's some swollen wheel arches, special 18-inch alloy wheels shod with 235/55 tyres, black details around the front including headlight clusters and fog light surrounds, some lower body guards, and roof racks. Trailer sway control is standard as usual, and hill-start assist.

As for mechanicals, front-wheel drive with a limited-slip differential is standard, but if you need more grip, four-corner traction is available for extra money.
