2021 Toyota Sequoia Nightshade First Look
The exterior of 2021 Toyota Sequoia Nightshade is unique and sporty. Like the TRD Pro trim, this model features many improvements over the base model. Basically, most of the changes are mainly cosmetic. Front of the Nightshade dominates thanks to lower chrome grille that is darkened and chrome Sequoia badging. We really like the new trim and especially body moldings and fog light bezels.
On top of that, choosing the Nightshade edition, customers will get a stylish 18 inches smoked black alloy wheels that look awesome on this model. Also, there will be plenty of exterior colors available with the Nightshade editions.
