If you are looking for big changes for the 2024 Toyota Tundra, get used to disappointment. Higher prices, new colors and a Nightshade package are all we have so far.
For the 2024 Toyota Tundra, the colors follow a similar playbook as in year’s past.
First, the TRD-Pro-only Solar Octane is now available on other trim levels. This is exactly the same thing Toyota has done in the past by offering a unique color for TRD Pro, then pushing it to other trims. Replacing the Solar Octane is Terra Pro. This is the new TRD-Pro-only color.
Other color changes are as follows: SR5 trim gets Solar Octane, and Lunar Rock is available on Platinum.
Outside of color, the biggest change is going to be price increases across the board. The base SR increases by $1,000, the more mainstream SR5 increases by $3,080, the Limited price goes up $3,340 and the Platinum sees a $1,000 price increase. The rest of the trims see a similar $1,000 increase.
Finally, the TRD Off-Road models get a new Nightshade package as an option, introducing dark styling accents. This package includes: matte-black 20-inch alloy wheels; black overfenders and rear bumper; gloss-black window molding, door handles, mirror caps and tailgate handle; and semi-black Tundra door badge and 4×4 badge (if equipped). This new package is similar to what Toyota did with the 2023 Tundra SX package.
The powertrain options of a 3.4-liter V-6 and a 3.4-liter V-6 hybrid (aka i-Force Max) remain the same.
Fans looking for big changes are often disappointed with the minimal changes Toyota does each year. However, there’s a reason why Toyota is one of the world’s largest automakers. This business model keeps costs down and profits high.
Plus, the lack of major changes helps improve the overall reliability for the model. It is like the old saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Toyota knows that one really, really well.
Shame they haven’t said anything about fixing all the issues that are plaguing my Capstone. After owning 9 Toyota’s, this is by far the worst vehicle I have ever owned. So far they have replaced:
– wireless charger, which is also a horrible design, where you r phone will not stay in place long enough to get a charge.
– fuel door actuator
– center console
– both front seat lumbar frames
– both from ball joints
– both front lower control arms
– dash cam, which is already a sub par product
– sunroof deflector
Additionally, go drive a RAM limited and you will quickly see how terrible the ride is in this $75k Toyota truck once you compare it to a shockingly superior setup. Owning a Chrysler product as a die hard Toyota fan is a sin but they really dropped the ball on this redesign. Terrible all around truck. raising the price on this lemon is an insult at the very least to consumers.
