What's New About the 2018 Toyota Tundra

You may think yourself to be familiar with Toyota trucks but, the new Toyota Tundra has tons of great features to add to the table. Toyotas are known for their perseverance, strength and durability which the manufacturing company has prided itself over for nearly 80 years. These kind words can be back by the fact that, of trucks sold in the past decade, approximately 88-91% of all Toyota Tundras are still operating.

Flashback:  This covenant reputation and ongoing dedication earned Toyota full-sized trucks the Kelly Blue Book “Best Resale” award in 2016.

Today, we would like to present you with the facts on the features of the newest Toyota truck, the 2018 Tundra.

All New TRD Sport Trim
The Tundra has a well-earned reputation for off-road ruggedness, and this all-new Toyota Racing Development Sports trim level is a slightly milder version of the aggressive Tundra TRD Pro. Available in October, it slides into the line of Tundras quite nicely between the SR5 and the Limited models.

CrewMax and Double Cab models of the Tundra TRD Sport feature rear and four-wheel-drive, a set of Bilstein dampers, and front and rear anti-roll bars. The Tundra’s naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V-8 puts out a beefy 381 horsepower.

Exterior finishes for the TRD Sport include a new mesh grille accentuated by matching body color surround, mirrors and bumper. New touches include a distinctive hood scoop and 20-inch alloy wheels with black painted insets. The Tundra’s interior cabin will see a new gauge cluster design featuring a larger 4.2-inch information display screen.

Toyota Safety Sense-P
The entire 2018 Tundra lineup gets Safety Sense-P suite standard with technology based safety features like a collision avoidance system that uses an in-vehicle camera and radar system that can detect pedestrians can help avoid an accident. Audio and visual alerts tell you a collision is imminent. Brake assist will automatically slow the vehicle to lower the likelihood of an accident.

When an unintended lane change occurs at speeds of 32 miles per hour or more, a lane-departure warning will alert drivers. Automatic high-beams detect other vehicles and toggle between settings as needed, while the dynamic radar cruise control adjusts speeds when entering a red zone between you and the driver in front of you.

LED Headlights and Fog Lights
New for the 2018 Toyota Tundra’s upper trim levels, including The Limited, Platinum and 1794 Edition, is standardly equipped LED daytime running headlights, fog lights and LED tail lights. With a more pronounced signature and smoked chrome bezel, the new LED exterior lighting package really ups the Tundra’s visual appeal.

We are all excited to see the what the perked-up 2018 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup has in store for consumers. The Tacoma’s big brother, we can all expect a rugged and brawny truck, with exclusive sport styling, assembled right here in America.
