On the other hand, models such as Sienna, Corolla, and Camry are already available in the Nightshade variant. Unfortunately, Nightshade edition will be sold in limited numbers.
Pickup trucks will be sold in 5,000 units only. This model comes with a darker appearance, and it adds numerous color choices and more equipment. So far, Nightshade was based on the SE trim level. From now on, this treatment will be based on the Limited trim level. That means the Nightshade is now a very premium version.
2021 Tundra Nightshade Goes Dark
We just wrote this, but the new 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade will be based on the Limited trim level. That means the Nightshade Edition offers everything from the Limited trim level and slightly above that. So if you are looking for a premium pickup with darkened exterior and interior, here’s your answer. Toyota offers an amazing level of black rims on the wheels, grille, mirror caps, and door handles. The chrome grille is looking impressive, and it sports new inserts.
The front fascia offers black fog light bezels while the rear comes with the new exhaust tip. The side profile provides Dark Smoke 18-inch alloy wheels. For instance, Tacoma Nightshade will offer the same wheels. Tundra comes with Magnetic Gray Metallic and Midnight Black Metallic exterior paints. Moreover, a Windchill Pearl Look and Super White colors are available.
Black Interior Theme
Inside the cabin, a new 2021 Toyota Tundra Nightshade is also getting a lot of updates. Logically, the interior is all-black, and it will be more premium than the luxury Limited trim level. Black leather seats, numerous badging, and larger touchscreens are all offered as standard.
