Toyota‘s flagship trucks, the Tacoma and Tundra are getting the addition of a new SX Package which offers an updated appearance without a hefty price tag. Adding something additional at the dealership without raising the price is rare these days, but Toyota has found a way to make it happen.
The new SX Package on the Tundra is available exclusively on SR5 grades in 4×2 or 4×4. It is offered on Double Cab models with a 6.5-foot bed and CrewMax models with a 5.5-foot bed. In all cases, it dresses up the Tundra with bold styling thanks to Dark Gray Metallic 18-inch wheels and by substituting black for body-color trim, including outer door handles and the rear inboard bumper.
In addition, the Tundra door badges are removed for a minimalist look, while the 4×4 badge on the tailgate gets blacked out (on applicable 4×4 models). Similar treatment can be found inside the cabin, as black accents replace smoked silver for the trim.
The Tundra SX Package is available in four exterior colors: White, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Celestial Silver Metallic, and for a particularly striking look, Midnight Black Metallic.
The 2023 Tacoma SX Package, previously available on the SR grades, is available only on V6-powered SR5s in Access Cab or Double Cab 4×2 and 4×4 models. To provide the truck with a bold look, it includes black overfenders for a rugged stance. The standard 16-inch wheels on SR5 also get swapped out for black wheels.
Blackout trim can be found around the SX Package as well as black badging. Smaller details are not overlooked as the outer mirrors also receive the blackout treatment, and even the lug nuts complement the black wheels. A unique bed graphic completes the package.
The 2023 Tacoma Chrome Package takes a different style route. Available only for V6-powered SR5 Double Cab with 5-foot bed in either 4×2 or 4×4, the Chrome Package adds a dash of sophistication. It’s anchored by 18-inch polished alloy wheels.
Chrome-finished outer door handles, exhaust tip and tailgate TACOMA insert give it that added touch of style. Inside, a leather-wrapped shift knob completes the look.
It may be subtle changes for the Tundra and Tacoma, but the styling is exactly what truck owners have been looking for in their pickup.
