2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Grey

The upcoming 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport was recently shown off at the Chicago Auto Show, heightening anticipation for the new vehicle even more. The experts at Toyota Racing Development (TRD) have developed the new TRD Sport grade to provide an added dose of capability, and we can’t wait to show it off to the customers here at Toyota of Naperville.

Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Philosophy

The 2017 Toyota Tundra already carries a regular TRD trim level, and that’s expected to carry over to the new model to provide the same exceptional off-road performance and hard-wearing capability.

What we seem to be getting with the 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport is a trim level that fuses the aggressive styling and standout backcountry skills of the regular TRD with the ability to perform better on the road. You’ll have TRD engineering at your back when you want to venture off-road, then you’ll have Sport styling when you want to turn heads in Elmhurst and Aurora.

Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Performance

The 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport will be available with CrewMax and Double Cab models, as well as in rear- or four-wheel-drive. To boost performance, TRD engineers have fitted TRD sport-tuned Bilstein shocks alongside TRD front and rear anti-roll bars.

Additionally, you can expect to have up to an impressive 381 hp at your disposal, courtesy of a state-of-the-art 5.7L naturally aspirated V8 engine. Such upgrades should lend themselves to agile performance on-road and sure-footed exploration in the backcountry.

Toyota Tundra TRD Sport Design

Drivers will be able to customize the appearance of their 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport with one of the following exterior color options:

  • Blazing Blue Pearl

  • Barcelona Red Metallic

  • Magnetic Gray

  • Midnight Black Pearl

  • Super White

The new trim level also enjoys a few distinctive exterior accents, including 20-inch silver aluminum-alloy wheels, LED headlamps with black bezels, and TRD bedside graphics. Once inside, you’ll find TRD Sport floor mats and shift knob, and, as with all 2018 Toyota Tundra models, the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite of driver-assistance features.
