Photographers captured new images of an updated Toyota Tundra testing on the streets in Los Angeles today. Toyota has already announced a new TRD Sport model for the 2018 model year, but there are other changes coming on the entire 2018 lineup, including what we see here with a new front end.

Toyota is refreshing the look of the Tundra another before a new version is unveiled sometime around 2020. This model's camouflaged front appears that the revisions are far less comprehensive than the ones the truck received for 2014, but its clear there will be a new grille, hood, headlights, and revised trim and fascia pieces.

Although unclear in these images, there are rumored to be some engine tweaks possibly in the works. A new 10-speed automatic that first appeared in the Lexus LC and LS models is also slated for all of Toyota's rear-drive vehicles, including the Tundra, but it's not clear if it will show up before the redesigned Tundra appears. This new Tundra is expected to be unveiled later this year.
