With full-sized proportions, the Tundra pickup truck and Sequoia SUV are Toyota’s two brawniest models. For 2024, their mid-tier Limited trim levels benefit from some changes that make them more desirable, including a newly standard 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a newly optional Nightshade appearance package.
The stealthy Nightshade look has become a Toyota staple, with the aesthetic available on everything from the compact Corolla to the Camry family sedan to the hybrid Venza SUV. Now offered on the Tundra and Sequoia Limited, it adds black-painted wheels, black mirror caps, and a black grille with a body-color surround.
Similarly, the TRD Off-Road package that can be paired with the Limited trim on both full-sizers receives a color-matched grille surround and black mirror caps. Plus, the next-level Platinum model now can be had in TRD Off-Road guise—provided it’s equipped with four-wheel drive. Unlike before, the Tundra and Sequoia’s Platinum and 1794 Edition offer a head-up display separate from the load-leveling rear suspension. However, we think those who will splurge for one of those options will probably opt for the other, right?
Last year, Toyota introduced a 3.0-inch lift kit developed by its TRD division, and it can be equipped on all non-TRD Pro versions of the Tundra and Sequoia. Along with jacking up the ride height by 2.6 inches, it increases approach and departure angles and works with the full-size driver-assistance tech. Bilstein monotube shocks, taller red-painted front coil springs, forged upper control arms from Roush Performance, and more are part of the setup. The TRD lift kit costs $3995 (not including installation) and can be installed at Toyota dealerships on all 2022 and newer models.
While Toyota hasn’t yet released pricing—or images, for that matter—for the 2024 Sequoia, the newest Tundra can be configured on the consumer site. The truck’s base price is $41,815 for the entry-level SR trim, $53,705 for the Limited, and just over $64K for the fancier 1794 Edition. Of course, adding four-wheel drive and/or opting for the hybrid V-6 powertrain will up the cost even more. Both upgrades are standard on the ’24 TRD Pro and Capstone, which start at $73,980 and $80,695, respectively.
