Toyota Tundra is undergoing some changes for model year 2021 which includes two new truck packages and new exterior colors.
Toyota’s new Trail and Nightshade Special Edition packages are aimed at growing lifestyle segments.
The 2021 Tundra Trail Special Edition is geared towards Tundra buyers who love the great outdoors and appreciate getting there with added storage, convenience and unique styling.
Available in both 2WD and 4WD versions, the Tundra Trail is based on the SR5 CrewMax with SR5 Upgrade Package which includes a larger 38-gallon fuel tank, front bucket seats with driver’s power lumbar support, front center console, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, three front cupholders, and an anti-theft system with alarm and engine immobilizer.
The Tundra Trail gets 18-inch split 5-spoke alloy wheels with dark gray finish that are wrapped in Michelin all-terrain tires. It also gets an added dose of bed versatility with lockable storage boxes, with the driver’s side box insulated to double as an on-the-go cooler. A standard spray-on bed liner enhances durability. Inside the cabin, all-weather, easy-to-clean floor liners offer more protection from outside elements.
Exterior colors include Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black and Super White with black badging outside and black seating with tan stitching inside. The Tundra Trail wears the bold chrome grille from the top-of-line 1794 Edition with a color-keyed surround.
2021 Tundra Nightshade Edition
The 2021 Tundra joins a growing roster of Toyota models to offer a Nightshade Edition. Based on the Limited grade and available with 2WD or 4WD, the Nightshade Tundra includes black leather-trim seating and slightly sinister looking black exterior trim to accent the Midnight Black Metallic, Cement, Super White (Double Cab only) or extra-cost Windchill Pearl premium paint (Crew Max only). With all colors, the Nightshade Tundra’s special styling continues with a darkened chrome grille, plus black mirror caps, door handles, alloy wheels, and exhaust tip.
Maintaining Toyota’s truck tradition of offering special colors, the Tundra TRD Pro swaps out Army Green for new Lunar Rock. The Tundra Limited, 1794 Edition, and Platinum grades now offer Wind Chill Pearl premium paint for 2021.
All 2021 Tundra models are powered by the i-FORCE 5.7-liter V8 that produces 381 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 401 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,600 rpm. Trucks offer up to 10,200-pound towing capacity and a 1,730-pound maximum payload.
