This article shares some of the interesting things to expect in the 2023 model and its price in Nigeria.
What’s New With The 2023 Toyota Tundra?
Since the Toyota Tundra was only redesigned for the 2022 model, Toyota will be keeping that same design for the 2023 model. Possibly, this design will remain till the end of this decade; we don’t expect any new design any time soon.
But, now, with the Tundra SR5 trims, the SX appearance package adds black and dark grey design elements to the Tundra’s exterior and interior trim.
The SX package will include dark grey 18-inch wheels, black door handles, body trim, rear bumper middle section, and darkens the rear 4×4 badge.
There’s also some change to the interior accents to black, and the Tundra door badges are removed. The SX package can be added to white, silver, grey, or black exterior paint options.
