The 2023 Toyota Tundra SX package is coming, and it should reach dealerships later this summer. For those who may not know, the new package will make the Tundra look more aggressive thanks to darkening the exterior, interior trim, as well as the wheels. According to Toyota, the SX package will be offered exclusively on 4×2 and 4×4 versions of the SR5 trim level. Interestingly, the same formula Toyota has used on the Tacoma, the 4Runner, the Sequoia, and the 2023 Camry Nightshade models.
The forthcoming Tundra will be powered by a new i-Force 3.5-liter V6 which produces 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, it offers more power and torque than the outgoing V8.
2023 Toyota Tundra SX Design
Toyota’s newest SX Package will make the Tundra look similar to the Nightshade models. In case you didn’t know, the manufacturer offered this package on the current Camry, 4Runner, and the Sequoia models. However, keep in mind that the SX package is available only on the SR5 trim level. It is also available with the Double Cab and 6.5-foot bed size and the CrewMax models with a 5.5-foot bed.
The SX Package also adds 18-inch Dark Gray Metallic wheels, black-colored door handles, and a rear inboard bumper. There are a few colors to choose from including White, Celestial Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, and Midnight Black Metallic. Colors that are available White, Celestial Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, and Midnight Black Metallic will be available with the SX Package.
Interior Changes and Upgrades
Inside, the 2023 Toyota Tundra SX Package looks way sportier compared to the regular model thanks to the interior black-colored theme, which replaces smoked silver accents. It is worth mentioning that the Tundra door badges are dumped. Also, the package will introduce a unique blacked-out seats, dashboard, and gray contrasting headliner and pillars.
Like other Toyota models, Safety Sense 2.5 is standard across the lineup. The package includes Road Sign Assist, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic High Beams Pre-Collision System, Lane-Keeping Assist, Lane-Departure Warning, Sway Warning System and more.
2023 Toyota Tundra SX Specs
Just like the regular version, the forthcoming 2023 Toyota Tundra SX model will come with the same engine. In case you didn’t know, the manufacturer replaced the aging V8 powertrain with a new i-Force 3.5-liter V6 engine. As far as we know, the new engine is able of producing 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, which is more power and torque than the outgoing V8.
2023 Toyota Tundra SX Price, Release Date
As we said, the new SX Package is available exclusively on 4×2 and 4×4 versions of the SR5 model. This trim is below the Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, TRD Pro, and Capstone. Pricing for the new SX package is not yet revealed, just like the price of the SR5 model.
However, the current SR5 had a starting price of $43,150, so we are expecting the SX model to cost at least $45,000. As the rest of the 2023 Toyota Tundra models, the SX one will be available to purchase later this summer.
