The 2018 Tundra TRD Sport is unveiled in Chicago and all people have a lot of reason for satisfaction. The off-road ability is something that is normal for all Toyota trucks and SUVs, and exactly the same thing we can expect with the Tundra TRD Sport. The models with the TRD badge (Toyota Racing Development) are the best models in the lineup, and that is the case with the Tundra model as well. This is the first time that the Tundra model gets this TRD Sports badge. This model will be certainly better and more aggressive than the Tundra TRD Pro.
2018 Tundra TRD Sport – Splendid Design:
The exterior design of 2018 Tundra TRD Sport will be a bit more aggressive than in the regular model. Some slight redesigns are provided and we can see it from the front side. That is also the most attractive part of this model and here we can see huge and very distinctive front grille with some kind of diamond finish and with the Toyota logo in the middle.
This model will be available in a few colors, some of them are:
- Magnetic Gray.
- Super White.

The bumper of this model will provide a bit larger air intakes. Also, the headlights will use the newly generation of LED technology. At the sides, we can see a bit large aluminum wheels. With the 6-spoke design and size of 20 inches, the wheels look amazing. The other exterior features will include body color front and rear fascia’s, mirror caps and matching hood scoop.
The interior design of this model will also receive some redesigns, but most of the updates will be in the technology section. When it comes to the design of the cabin, everything will remain pretty much the same as before. We can expect updated Toyota Safety kit with the addition of the updated Toyota Safety Sense. Also, there is going to be Pre-Collision System, Auto High Beams, Lane Departure Alert, Cruise Control, etc.
