The TRD Sport is part of an overall refresh for the 2018 Tundra. Safety will be enhanced on all Tundra models with the addition of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS-P) as standard equipment. This multi-feature advanced active safety suite bundles a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection (PCS w/PD), lane departure alert (LDA), auto high beams (AHB) and dynamic radar cruise control (DRCC). Drivers can view the status of TSS-P through an upgraded multi-information display.

The Limited, Platinum and 1794 Edition will be equipped with new LED headlights and daytime running lights (DRL), and LED fog lights.
LED headlights and fog lights are also available when the TRD off-road package is selected on SR5 models. The SR and SR5 grades will receive halogen headlights with a black bezel and LED daytime running lights (DRL).
