The TRD Desert Racer concept from the SEMA exhibition last year might have been made into a real model. The launch of a new SX Package for the SR5 trim level is, regrettably, the headline-grabbing and sole update for the Tundra.
The SX Package, in a creative way, darkens the wheels, the external trim, and the interior trim. We’ve seen that somewhere else, right? It seems to be almost all over.
Toyota has utilized this formula frequently, primarily under the Nightshade brand, on the Tacoma, the 4Runner, the Sequoia, and the 2023 Camry.
Yet although the Camry plays it straight with its dark gray 18-inch wheels, the Tundra plays crazy with its golden 18-inch wheels. Moreover, it gives the door handles, body trim, middle area of the rear bumper, and rear 4×4 insignia a black finish.
Furthermore black, the door badges for the Tundra have been removed. There are four exterior colors in grayscale that can be used with the SX Package: white, silver, gray, or black.
The Tundra SR5 is one level above the workingman’s SR but below the Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, TRD Pro, and Capstone. The SX Package is only available on 4×2 and 4×4 variants of the Tundra SR5.
The 2023 SR5’s starting price—along with that of the SX Package—has not yet been released, however the 2022 SR5 had a starting price of $43,150. Later this summer, the Tundra SR5 SX will be released among the other 2023 versions.
