2018 Toyota Tundra Refresh Spied

Final Nip & Tuck Before New Model Expected

Mar 2, 2017

With the 2017 model year, the Toyota Tundra is going on a full decade since its last full redesign in 2007. Compared to its domestic and even import-brand peers, the truck is showing its age. The truck got a minor interior and exterior refresh in 2014, but mechanically, little has changed since the switch from the 4.7 to 4.6L V-8 in 2010. From the looks of these photos, it appears Toyota has a little more detail love in store for the current Tundra before an all-new model comes out, likely for 2019.
The most notable change visible in these photos are LED headlights. This feature rolled out in the mainstream of Toyota models with the Corolla in 2013. Other than the LED lights and possibly a revised grille, it looks like little else has changed on the Tundra. No major powertrain changes are expected until the all-new model. Toyota has said a hybrid version of the Tundra will be coming at some point. Ford and Toyota initially signed a tentative joint venture agreement to develop a hybrid system for fullsize trucks in 2011 but split ways in 2013. We don’t expect to see a hybrid Tundra until the next-generation model arrives.
