TRD Sport trim and safety tech refresh the 2018 Tundra lineup

For the 2018 model year the popular RAV4 compact crossover adds a new Adventure grade for young families looking for fun in out-of-the-way places

At the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota is introducing a new trim level of its popular compact crossover SUV, the RAV4 Adventure.

The Tundra and Sequoia are in for a styling update for the '18 model year, and get Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P) features standard across their model lineups.

The guys over at Toyota recently outfitted their C-segment crossover with a sportier version called the 2018 RAV4 Adventure. Both vehicles receive subtle styling updates and get new features for 2018.

Another modernization is standard LED headlights and daytime running lights on higher-end grades (Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition) and LED DRLs on SR and SR5 midgrade Tundras. Along with the 381-horsepower i-Force 5.7-liter V-8, they now get TRD Sport-Tuned Bilstein Shocks and TRD front and rear anti-sway bars.

And to ensure that everyone knows the car's performance potential, the TDR model will sit on 20-inch alloy wheels with a black finish. The TRD Sport package is available on both the CrewMax and DoubleCab Tundra bodies.

Where to find Facebook's new Weather app
It shows users profiles of people attending upcoming events, people who live nearby, and people who the user works with. It would be found in the place where users can see options such as Friends, Groups, Events and more .

To distinguish the TRD Sport from regular Tundra models, Toyota adds body color mirrors, bumpers, hood scoop, LED headlights, mesh grille and TRD Sport decals on the bedsides.

Also like the Tundra, the Sequoia comes better prepared as a 2018MY vehicle, featuring updated active safety features like PCS w/PD, LDA, AHB and DRCC.

Inside, there's a TRD shifter, floor mats and sill protectors, as well as black fabric seating for seven. It'll stand out a bit from its siblings with its own 20-inch wheel design and a front grille and bumper look seemingly inspired by the Toyota Highlander.

Inside, all Sequoia models will come standard with a new instrumentation panel gauge cluster and 4.2-inch Multi-information Display (MID) that tracks the status of TSS-P. The trim is offered in front-wheel drive with an automatic limited-slip differential, or with all-wheel drive. Pricing has yet to be announced, but it is expected to be available at dealerships by September of this year. Trailer sway control is standard as usual, and hill-start assist.
