Toyota has just pulled the cover off a new Tundra offering today at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, as the company will offers a 2018 Tundra TRD Sport model later this year.

The Tundra TRD Sport has a unique appearance from the rest of the lineup, including color-keyed mirrors and hood scoop and 20-inch alloy silver wheels, smoked chrome bezels on the LED headlights, TRD Sport graphics, and a choice between five different exterior colors. Inside, a TRD shift knob and floor mats are added. The TRD Sport model also gets Bilstein shocks and TRD-tuned front and rear anti-sway bars for improved performance.

A few changes will be added to the 2018 Tundra lineup for 2018 as well, as the Limited and 1794 Edition will receive a new billet style grille while select trims will add a new mesh grille. There will be LED headlights, daytime running lights and fog lights on the Limited, Platinum and 1794 models, while just the LED headlights and fog lights will come with the TRD Off-Road package selected on SR5 models. The SR and SR5 trims get new halogen headlights and LED daytime running lights.

Every 2018 Tundra will also receive the new Safety Sense-P package, which includes a pre-collision system, lane departure alert, automatic high beams and radar-based adaptive cruise control.

No mechanical changes are being made to the 2018 Tundra, which means the returning power plants will be offered in the 5.7-liter V8 4.6-liter V8 with 310 hp to still be offered. Pricing for the 2018 Tundra was not announced at this time.
