The 2023 Toyota Tundra Adds SX Package to LineupJun 3rd, 2022
Take a first look at the new SX Package available exclusively on SR5 grades in 4×2 or 4×4! It is offered on both Double Cab models with 6.5-foot bed and CrewMax models with the 5.5-foot bed. This SX Package, gives the Tundra a bold styling with the Dark Gray Metallic 18-inch wheels and Black body-color trim, including outer door handles and the rear inboard bumper. 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 SX Package is available with four exterior colors: White, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Celestial Silver Metallic and, for a particularly striking look, Midnight Black Metallic.
The Tundra also offers two impressive new powertrains: a twin-turbo V6 engine and a hybrid twin-turbo V6, with the latter being the most powerful of the two. Both engines team with a 10-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission with intelligence.
The new i-FORCE MAX combines the twin-turbo V6 with a motor-generator with a clutch located within the bell housing between the engine and 10-speed automatic transmission. The motor-generator provides additional power through the transmission, while the engine start-up, EV driving, electric-assist and energy regeneration are solely done via the parallel hybrid components. Although the electric motor does the bulk of the work at lower speeds, once above 18 mph, the gasoline engine remains in constant operation for optimal performance in the mid-and high-speed range. When in TOW/HAUL mode, the i-FORCE MAX system is constantly in operation to provide impressive acceleration and torque for towing needs.
The Tundra is, for the first time, available with a rear air suspension system with automatic and manual leveling functions. Another first for Tundra is the available Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system. Adopted from the luxury-vehicle category, AVS is designed to continually adjust damping force based on ever-changing road conditions, enhancing both ride quality and handling.
Beyond the added chassis strength, the Tundra offers many additional features to help make towing easier. For added visibility when trailering, the available Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) uses cameras to display a top-down view of the truck on the available 14-inch display. Views include the rear truck bed to check on cargo, a rear split view to show what’s nearby on each side of the trailer, and a hitch view to assist with trailer connecting!
