2021 Toyota Nightshade family additions –  Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia

Toyota debuted Nightshade versions of Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia to their respective 2021 model year lineups at the Chicago Auto Show last month.

This trio of Toyota trucks join the five vehicles already offered as Nightshade Editions.  Those vehicles include the Corolla Sedan, Corolla Hatchback, Camry, 4Runner, and Sienna van.  The new Nightshade Editions will be available this summer. 

While most Toyota Nightshade models are based on SE grade versions, the 2021 Nightshade Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia are built on their more luxurious Limited grade models.

All models share black leather-trim seating and feature slightly sinister looking black exterior trim, including a darkened chrome grille, black mirror caps and black door handles

Tacoma Nightshade Interior

All three of the Toyota Nightshade trucks can be ordered as either 2WD or 4WD.

The latest Nightshade trio have distinctive details that vary by model.

The Tacoma Nightshade is further distinguished by Dark Smoke 18-inch alloy wheels, black exhaust tip and fog light bezels, and a new grille insert design.

Tundra Nightshade features black wheels and exhaust tip.

The Sequoia Nightshade uniquely features darkened chrome ‘Sequoia’ badging, body moldings, and lower grille and fog light surrounds.

Sequoia Nightshade

The Nightshade Editions look particularly wicked in Midnight Black Metallic or Magnetic Gray Metallic.  But Nightshade on this latest Toyota trio of trucks is not just Black or Gray.

For more customization, the Tacoma and Tundra are also available in Windchill Pearl. The Tundra can also be ordered in Super White, while the Sequoia Nightshade offers Blizzard Pearl as an additional choice.

As with just announced Trail Editions, the build on the Nightshade Editions will not be extensive. Toyota is planning to build 5,000 each of the Tacoma and Tundra Nightshade, and just 2,500 Sequoia Nightshade.

Pricing and other details will be announced closer to availability at dealerships.

If you are interested in a 2021 Nightshade Edition from Tacoma, Tundra or Sequoia, you should contact your dealer soon to make sure they get the truck you want shipped to them.
