These include the Nighshade Package and Trail Editions across four products

Toyota created a buzz before the 2020 Chicago Auto Show kicked off by announcing it’ll bring “sporty and outdoorsy, with a touch of nocturnal mischief.” to the show. Toyota teased the Tacoma’s front passenger side lower fascia in a teaser image leading to the auto show, but now we have all the scoop. The company has brought along Trail and Nightshade editions for a handful of its vehicles.

The Trail Editions are introduced on the 2021 models of the Tacoma, Tundra, and the 4Runner. They are aimed at folks who prefer rugged vehicles for a “sporty and outdoorsy” lifestyle. The Trail Edition will be based on the SR5 trims on all three vehicles. They will be offered in special exterior colors that include Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, and Super White, and also receive black badging to distinguish from the regular SR5 trims. On the inside, Toyota has upholstered the vehicles in black seats with tan contrast stitching. All-weather floor mats also come as part of the package. The Tacoma Trail will come with stuff like:

  • Dark Gray 18-inch TRD Off-Road wheels
  • Kevlar All-Terrain tires
  • Front fascia grille borrowed from Tacoma Limited
  • A 115-volt power outlet in the bed
  • Lockable bed storage that doubles up as a cooler as well
  • Limited to 7,000 Tacomas

As for the Tundra Trail, you receive:

  • Chrome grille from the 1794 trim
  • Special Edition exclusive wheels
  • Lockable bed storage-cum-cooler like on the Tacoma Trail
  • Limited to 5,000 Tundras

The 4Runner Trail will be equipped with:

  • Dark Gray TRD Off-Road wheels
  • Yakima LoadWarrior Rooftop Cargo Basket
  • Custom 40-quart Cooler
  • Sliding Cargo Tray
  • Limited to 4,000 4Runners

Toyota has also blacked out a few more models in its portfolio. Currently, the company offers the Nightshade package on five of its products – 4Runner, Camry, Corolla, Corolla hatch, and Sienna – on the SE trims. Now, Toyota has added the Tacoma, Tundra, and Sequoia to the range as well. The Limited trims of these three vehicles will be treated to the Nightshade package. Customers can have the Nightshade package on these new vehicles in Midnight Black Metallic or Magnetic Gray Metallic exterior shade. Toyota offers this package on the Tacoma in Super White shade, too. The common package details across the three models include:

  • Black Leather Seats
  • Blacked-Out Front Grille
  • Black Mirror Caps
  • Black Door Handles

Apart from this, the Tacoma Nightshade also receives:

  • Dark Smoke 18-inch Wheels
  • A Black Exhaust Tip
  • Black Fog Light Bezels
  • New Grille Insert Design
  • Offered in Windchill Pearl shade as well
  • Limited to 5,000 Tacomas

On the Tundra, the company offers black wheels and black exhaust tip. Other than the two standard exterior shades, you can order it in Windchill Pearl, or Super White as well. Toyota will only make 5,000 examples of this one. As for the Sequoia, it receives darkened chrome "Sequoia" badging, body moldings, lower grille, and fog light surrounds. The SUV with the Nightshade package can be had in Blizzard Pearl shade as well. The company has limited the production to 2,500 examples for the Sequoia Nightshade.

Toyota hasn’t revealed the pricing for any of the Special Edition vehicles, but we don’t expect a major increase in any of them. The company also hasn’t announced when these vehicles will be available.
