Key Differences Between the 2018 Toyota Tundra and the 2017 Toyota Tundra

The first, and biggest differences, from the 2017 to the 2018 model year is the addition of standard Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS-P). This system includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Auto High Beams (AHB), and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). Drivers can view the status of TSS-P through an upgraded Multi-Information Display. The 2017 model year does not offer these features as standard equipment, however, shoppers can access them through an upgrade. 

Another new addition for the 2018 model year is the 2018 Toyota Tundra TRD Sport trim level. This model will be available in 4x4 and 4x2 CrewMax and Double Cab configurations and powered by the proven 381-horsepower 5.7-liter i-Force V8 engine. Driving performance will be enhanced with the addition of TRD Sport Tuned Bilstein Shocks and TRD front and rear anti-sway bars. The 2017 model year offers a 2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. This model is also designed to be a high-performance vehicle in its own right. You'll have to decide between these two models based on your own personal wants and stylistic preferences. 

In addition to these two upgrades, the 2018 Toyota Tundra will also receive a new mesh grille on select trims while the Tundra Limited and 1794 Edition will receive a new billet style grille. The Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition will be equipped with new LED Headlights and Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and LED Fog Lights. The SR and SR5 grades will receive halogen headlights with a black bezel and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL). The 2017 model year also houses a number of stylistic elements that will entice customers.
