Toyota Updates Tundra, Sequoia for '18 With Standard Safety

Toyota Updates Tundra, Sequoia for '18 With Standard Safety

The current Toyota Tundra was first introduced for the 2014 model year at the Chicago auto show, but the Sequoia has seen few updates since it debuted in 2008.

All 2018 Tundras and Sequoias come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P) suite of convenience and safety features, which includes lane departure warning, Pedestrian Detection, automatic high beams, and radar-based adaptive cruise control.

Toyota is set to offer a fresh version of its popular RAV4 compact crossover. Like Tundra, the 2018 Sequoia will raise the bar in the area of safety as TSS-P will be standard on all models (includes PCS w/PD, LDA, AHB, and DRCC).

The platform mates, which have gotten refreshed over the years but haven't had full redesigns in over a decade, will be offered in TRD Sport trim, an aesthetic package not to be confused with the lineup of TRD Pro trucks made for off-road sport.

For now, the Sequoia's big news is its TRD Sport package.

Visually, the TRD package adds color-keyed bumpers, mirror caps and hood scoop, 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, daytime running lamps and foglights, a unique mesh grille and surround, and TRD bedside graphics.

Also like the Tundra, the Sequoia comes better prepared as a 2018MY vehicle, featuring updated active safety features like PCS w/PD, LDA, AHB and DRCC. Inside, the Sequoia TRD Sport gets TRD Sport floor mats, shift knob and sill protectors.

Sequoia also gets refined finishes, including a new grille and 20-inch black wheels.

The SUV's interior receives a new gauge cluster and multi-information display, as well as an updated center console "with a smooth vertical surface and trim with wood-like accents", Toyota says. Dressed for the great outdoors, it features larger fender flairs, an elevated ride height and a standard trailer-prep package, which includes an upgraded radiator as well as engine-oil and transmission-fluid coolers. Five exterior colors are available. RAV4 Adventures with all-wheel drive feature Dynamic Torque Control, sending more power to the front or rear wheels when needed. It will be at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, but we won't see the 2018 Tundra until September.
