According to the photos and first information, it seems that Sequoia has deserved to be first on the list of the amazing new truck, especially if we know that manufacturer has not revealed all details about it. It will be third-row SUV with new LED headlights and taillights but not much more new in exterior design. It looks like Toyota has made only small changes in design, although the features and improvements from the last changed model have quietly been fading trough last ten years.

Nothing more we can say about Tundra either. Even though it has changed headlights and taillights as Sequoia, getting new and modern LED ones, as well as front clips; other changes are in the level of regular maintenance of the design. However, the TRD Sports version has also survived large changes, as mechanically Bilstein-branded shocks and front and end sway bars. Providing a sportier look, Toyota offers color matched hood, scoop, bumpers together with unique front grille and 20-ich wheels for New Toyota Tundra.

Both models will not disappoint even the most demanded buyers, giving the whole package of the additional equipment, like adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, as well as automatic emergency braking system paired with Safety Suite package, for passengers’ safety in driving.
We know that after this report you cannot wait to hear other important information like engine model, fuel economy, and price, but you should wait for the September when the both models will be offered at dealers.
