The basic shape of the trapezoid grille returns but there are distinct detailing differences. Toyota also developed a separate grille for the Tundra Limited and Platinum so the upscale models are easily recognized. Here are more specifics:
- The upper “slot” on the grille surround features a revised cross section that appears more functional
- The previous 3-bar design is replaced with a cleaner single horizontal bar on SR5, Tundra Grade and Work Truck models
- Limited and Platinum models receive a new billet-style grille with satin-chrome bars
- The grille surround will be black on Tundra Grade and Work Truck and chrome on SR5, Limited and Platinum
The new tail lamp covers have a rectangular shape to replace the previous roundhouse style. The new design is a bit edgier with crisp angles and gives the rear of the truck a more serious attitude.
- The Tundra will be offered in 11 exterior colors, two of which are improved for 2010. Sandy Beach Metallic replaces Desert Sand Mica and Spruce Mica replaces Timberland Mica. Both are enhanced for a sharper, fresher appearance.
The headlamp design returns, but with available manual-leveling headlamps. This option helps when the front of the truck tilts upward slightly due to towing or hauling heavy cargo, causing the headlamp beam to point too high and distract oncoming traffic. The available leveling headlamps can be manually lowered to one of five pre-selected levels.
Another new tow-friendly feature is the availability of power folding extendable tow mirrors. Previous tow mirrors folded manually. This new feature is much more convenient when parking in tight spaces or negotiating a drive-through lane.
Finally, a power-sliding rear window is available on Double Cabs. The window can be opened or closed using a switch on the dash.
