Toyota has announced some updates for its full-size truck and SUV models, the Tundra and the Sequoia, for the 2024 model year. The changes include a new Nightshade appearance package, a TRD Off-Road package for the Platinum trim, and a factory-installed three-inch lift kit for both vehicles.
Nightshade Package Adds Black Accents
The Nightshade package is a new option for the Limited trim level of the Tundra and the Sequoia. It adds black-painted wheels, over fenders, grille, mirror caps, and badges to give the vehicles a more stealthy look. The package is available with eight different exterior colors: Ice Cap, Wind Chill Pearl, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic, Celestial Silver Metallic, Supersonic Red, Lunar Rock, and Blueprint.
The Nightshade package replaces the SX package that was previously offered on the SR5 trim level of the Tundra and the Sequoia. The SX package also added black accents, but was more limited in color choices and features.
TRD Off-Road Package Expands to Platinum Trim
The TRD Off-Road package is a popular option for buyers who want to enhance the off-road capabilities of their Tundra or Sequoia. The package includes features such as skid plates, all-terrain tires, Bilstein shocks, and a locking rear differential. For 2024, the TRD Off-Road package can now be paired with the Platinum trim level of both vehicles, which adds more luxury and convenience features such as leather seats, JBL sound system, and a head-up display.
The TRD Off-Road package can also be combined with the Nightshade package on the Limited trim level of the Tundra and the Sequoia. This creates a unique combination of style and performance for buyers who want both.
Three-Inch Lift Kit Available from Factory
One of the most notable updates for the 2024 Tundra and Sequoia is the availability of a three-inch lift kit as a factory-installed accessory. The lift kit was developed by Toyota’s TRD division and was previously offered as a dealer-installed option. The lift kit raises the ride height by 2.6 inches and increases the approach and departure angles of both vehicles. It also works with the driver-assistance technologies such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.
The lift kit consists of Bilstein monotube shocks, taller red-painted front coil springs, forged upper control arms from Roush Performance, and more. The lift kit costs $3,995 (not including installation) and can be installed at Toyota dealerships on all 2022 and newer models.
Pricing and Availability
The 2024 Toyota Tundra starts at $41,815 for the base SR trim level, which is an increase of $1,000 from the previous model year. The Limited trim level starts at $53,705, while the Platinum trim level starts at $63,055. The top-of-the-line Capstone trim level starts at $80,695. The hybrid powertrain option adds an extra cost to all trim levels.
The 2024 Toyota Sequoia has not yet released its pricing or images, but it is expected to follow a similar pattern as the Tundra. Both vehicles are expected to hit dealer lots soon.
