The upcoming 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade is something new on the market. Toyota introduced its brand-new Nightshade treatment a few months ago. It is an edition based on the Limited trim level, and it will look very nice. Built on the double-cab architecture, Tacoma will gain various exterior and interior modifications. Moreover, Camry, 4Runner, and Sienna models will gain the same edition as well.
The Japanese manufacturer will also offer the same treatment on the Tundra and Sequoia models. This edition will add plenty of blacked-out features, black leather upholstery, and much more. The award-winning V6 engine is available, and it comes with a standard four-wheel-drive system. Toyota plans to deliver up to 5,000 copies of Tacoma Nightshade, and the sales will begin in the coming weeks.
2021 Tacoma Nightshade Design
New 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade will look very premium. Beside excellent exterior modifications, this edition is based on the Limited trim level. For that reason, the Nightshade variant seems very nice and sleek. Tacoma looks good anyway, but Nightshade treatment will improve the truck’s appearance. For a start, the exterior will wear a lot of blacked-out features, including mirror caps and door handles. The grille is especially nice with added dark chrome finishes. Just like the Limited model, this model will ride on 18-inch alloy wheels. However, the wheels are now finished in black paint.
The fog-bezels are also blacked out, and the exhaust tip will be different and sportier. Toyota will modify the lower grille and body moldings. Moreover, fog lights are new as well. You can get new Tacoma Nightshade in different exterior colors, not only black. That includes Magnetic Gray Metallic, Super White and Midnight Black Metallic paints. Tacoma also offers one optional color called the Windchill Pearl.
The interior of the 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade will get more or less the same treatment as the exterior. That means the arriving pickup truck will get black leather upholstery and various blacked-out interior features. Everything on the inside looks premium and very stylish.
The cabin is luxury enough, and Toyota will even add larger displays, beautiful contrast stitching, and more standard amenities. Thanks to that, the customers can enjoy in a very modern interior that comes with the latest driver-assistance aids and much more.
Potent V6 Engine Specs
The approaching 2021 Toyota Nightshade will use a familiar 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine. It is one of the most reliable gasoline engines in the segment, and it can produce 280 horsepower. Moreover, potent V6 delivers up to 265 lb-ft of torque. A 2.7-liter with 160 horses won’t be offered in the Tacoma Nightshade edition at all.
Toyota offers a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearbox options. A 2WD setup will be standard, and Tacoma Nightshade will tow almost 7,000 pounds. Lastly, the V6 engine delivers 18 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade Release Date and Price
As for the price, the new 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade will cost around $40,000. Regular Tacoma starts at $27,000, but we think the price is fair. Toyota will produce and sell 5,000 examples of Tacoma Nightshade edition, and the sales will begin by the end of 2020.
