2017 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia TRD Sport models

Pictured is the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport, so we can expect some similarities in the 2017 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia TRD Sport models.

When outdoor adventures call you name, you need a vehicle that can get you there. At the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota showed three new, adventurous models capable enough for even the most outdoorsy family.

Both the Tundra pickup and Sequoia SUV will gain new TRD Sport models for the 2018 model year. In addition, the popular RAV4 gains an Adventure model. These adventure-driven models will all come with performance upgrades.

The Tundra and Sequoia TRD Sport trims will be powered by the 5.7-liter i-Force V8 engine. In addition, they will get TRD Sport Tuned Bilstein Shocks and TRD front and rear anti-sway bars. Both models will also come with unique exterior styling elements to set them apart from other models. The Tundra will get 20-inch alloy silver sporty wheels and a mesh grille with body color surround. On the Sequoia, buyers will see darkened rear tail light housing, metallic black mirror caps, and a new front grille insert.

On the RAV4 Adventure model with front-wheel drive, it will have an Automatic Limited-Slip Differential. The all-wheel-drive models will come with Dynamic Torque Control. Both will feature a Tow Prep Package along with an upgraded suspension system and more.

These adventurous 2018 models will begin arriving in dealership this September.

As one of the top-selling brands in the world, Toyota has a number of vehicles that not only appeal to mainstream drivers, but niche enthusiasts, as well. Several Toyota nameplates have been optimized in some trims for off-roading prowess. The latest vehicle to join the off-roading fray is none other than the new Toyota 4Runner. The addition of two 4Runner off-road trims adds extra performance and capability to this rugged SUV unlike anything drivers have experienced.

Toyota 4Runner Off-Road Trims

4Runner Trims

The two trims in question will be called the TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium. The new 4Runner trim levels will slot just below the Limited model and replace previous model years’ Trail trims. This 4Runner features everything from fancy TRD badges to new four-wheel drive technology that’s been tweaked for off-road capabilities. Aside from the new badges, other cosmetic touches will include silver wheels, black accents, and carbon-fiber-look trim in the cabin. The TRD Off-Road Premium trim will feature red lettering stitched into the head restraints.

Other features on the 4Runner off-road trims will include Toyota’s Crawl Control system, a locking rear differential. Also, there will be an available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System for improving off-road wheel articulation. Pricing isn’t yet announced for the new models, but will join the 2017 Toyota 4Runner lineup. Visit our website for all of our new and used inventory.
