Toyota might not have any earth shattering revealings planned for the 2021 model year, the Japanese auto giant still has a few other surprises up its sleeve, with three of its most popular models not only receiving new special edition variants, but also minor changes to the pricing ladder.
Unsurprisingly, the one receiving the least changes is the Toyota Land Cruiser. This iconic and long running off-roader has been a reliable icon for Toyota, and for 2021 the Heritage Edition returns. While the Heritage Edition retains its trademark roof rack, BBS, wheels, and other heritage touches, it can now be equipped to the three row model which should please some Land Cruiser buyers that like the unique vibe projected by the variant, but need a more family friendly offering. The limited production model will also be available in two more colors (Classic Silver Metallic and Magnetic Grey Metallic.)

Meanwhile the Toyota 4-Runner will arrive with more extensive changes for the 2021 model year, with an updated TRD Pro model and an all new Trail Special Edition leading the way. All examples of the model will now get standard LED headlights, as well as LED fog lights. The fore-mentioned Trail Edition starts life as an SR5 grade model, but Toyota adds goodies such as a Yakima Load Warrior rooftop basket, black exterior trim, as well as TRD sourced off-road wheels. The Trail Edition also comes with a diverse array of colors including Cement, Army Green, Midnight Black, and Super White. The interior of the SUV largely carries over unchanged, but Trail Editions feature a 40 quart cooler that is available in either Cement or Army Green. As mentioned, an updated TRD Pro model is also in the cards for the 2021 model year. Debuting an all new Lunar Grey paint scheme (which replaces Army Green) the off-road ready model also gets new black wheels that are shod with Nitto Terra Grappler tires and the SUV even gains revised 2.5 inch Fox internal bypass shocks.

|TRD Pro 4X4||$50,470|
Last but certainly not least is the 2021 Toyota Tundra which rolls into the new model year with its fair share of changes. The Tundra will get all new Nightshade and Trail Editions, with the TRD Pro model also rocking the Lunar Grey paint color. Like the 4-Runner Trail Edition, the Tundra version starts life as an SR5 Crew Max variant that is equipped with the SR5 Upgrade package. The Trail also comes with chrome and black trim, with buyers being able to choose from Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, and Super White. The Bed gets an insulated lockable storage area with a removable drain plug that allows it to function as a mobile cooler.
The Nightshade Edition (as the name implies) covers the truck in dark trim with a blackened chrome grille also part of the package. Unlike the SR5 based Trail Edition, the Nightshade Edition starts life as a Tundra Limited model which means a higher level of standard equipment. The standard color is Midnight Black Metallic, but buyers can also choose Magnetic Grey Metallic, Windchill Pearl, or even Super White.
