The brand-new 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade is an incredible model that looks very impressive. Built on the reliable double-cab platform, Nightshade Edition has been based on the Limited trim level. Toyota already offers this special edition on its Camry, 4Runner and Sienna models. Recently, at the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota introduces the Nightshade version for Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia models.
Tacoma Nightshade comes with various blacked-out exterior trims and black leather upholstery on the inside. It is powered by an award-winning V6 engine and it offers optional four-wheel-drive setup. However, this edition will be sold in 5,000 examples. Its arrival will happen this fall.
2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade Appearance
The upcoming 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade is based on the Limited trim level. It is a body-on-frame pickup that offers an imposing appearance. The exterior is full of blacked-out features, including the door handles and mirror caps. The grille looks amazing and it sports nice dark chrome finishes. This model will ride on dark-finished 18-inch alloy wheels and fog-bezels are blacked out as well. Even the exhaust tip features the same treatment.
The Japanese manufacturer also edited lower grille and body moldings. The fog lights and exterior badges are also changed. Overall, it is a very handsome pickup that looks incredibly stylish. Lastly, all of the Nightshade models are not entirely black. You can have this model in Super White, Magnetic Gray Metallic and Midnight Black Metallic exterior paints. Unlike Camry or Sienna, Tacoma offers one extra-cost color called Windchill Pearl.
Interior Feature Black Accents
The interior also looks very stylish and modern. The forthcoming 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade will feature black leather seats that are similar to the ones in Tundra Nightshade. The all-black design looks very premium and a Limited trim level comes with plenty of luxury. That means the Tacoma Nightshade will offer larger displays, contrast stitching, badging and more equipment.
The list of standard features is really long and generally, the interior is very modern and tech-rich. Moreover, all of the updates that will be included in regular Tacoma, will also become available in the Nightshade Edition.
Proven V6 Engine
The 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade will deploy a reliable 3.5-liter V6. It is an optional engine on the regular Tacoma that uses a smaller 2.7-liter with 160 hp. However, powerful V6 provides 280 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. You can have new Tacoma Nightshade with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
A two-wheel-drive setup is standard while you can go for the optional four-wheel-drive system. Tacoma Nightshade will tow up to 6,800 pounds. On top of that, the V6 engine delivers 18 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade Cost and Arrival Date
While the regular Tacoma starts at $27,000, this special edition will cost significantly more. As we said, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade has been based on the Limited trim level so the price will start at around $40,000. Toyota will build 2,500 copies of the Tacoma and Tundra Nightshade editions and the sales will start this fall.
