New TRD Pro Color Confirmed: 2021 Toyota Tundra Gets New Look

The 2021 Tundra and other popular Toyota TRD Pro models are getting a new exclusive color. Time for the big reveal.

TRD Pro is a badge worn by the coolest and toughest trucks and SUVs in the entire Toyota lineup. You will find this on Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, 4Runner and Sequoia.

Toyota assigns one specific color every year that will adorn only TRD Pro vehicles exclusively. In the past, we have seen Inferno orange, Quicksand, Cement, Cavalry Blue, Voodoo Blue and, most recently, Army Green.

But what about for 2021?

2021 Tundra TRD Pro color

I recently wrote a Torque News story guessing about potential TRD Pro colors and might make the list. The rainbow of options stretched anywhere from maroon to yellow to fire red to purple.

Nope, none of those.

Often Toyota will pick a color that has been used in previous years for its cult-like FJ Cruiser. Toyota chose some wicked cool shades in the past.

Not this time, though.

The color chosen for 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro, 2021 4Runner TRD Pro, 2021 Sequoia TRD Pro and 2021 Tundra TRD Pro was sitting out there right in front of our noses the whole entire time. We just did not see it.

Ladies and gentlemen meet Lunar Rock.

Lunar Rock has become a popular choice among Toyota RAV4 owners for the past two model years. It is somewhat of a dusty green mixed with a healthy shade of cement and gray and silver, if that makes any sense.

The thing I like most about Lunar Rock is that it does not appear to show dirt and pollen as much as many other car colors. Off-roaders and overlanders may appreciate this aspect, although I am sure they will do their best to dirty their new rides up as much as possible, right?

What people say about 2021 TRD Pro color

News of this new Lunar Rock TRD Pro choice has been making its way around popular Toyota forums, YouTube sites and, of course, the Toyota social media pages. Reaction has been mostly positive, while some were left scratching their heads.

This is how most news goes these days, correct?

“That color is awesome. Not a fan of army green personally, but this is very nice.” Chimed in Caleb.

Popular YouTube channel host TRD Jon added. "Army Green and Cement had a baby."

VG was not as thrilled. “Another bland color that looks good but it doesn’t scream at you like voodoo blue, Calvary blue, and the orange color (inferno maybe?) did. Those colors made people pay extra money, sometimes a lot more money, just to get those colors. But I don’t think anybody will go crazy over RAV4 gray.”

“I think I like the Lunar Rock Metallic. I actually think I'll probably jump on the 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro Lunar Rock Metallic.” Said Ducky Dave.

Tony commented. “My wife owns a RAV4 Adventure in Lunar Rock and it looks great. I’m thinking 2021 4Runner will look sweet in same color!”

Melissa was already making plans. “Just found my husband’s 50th Birthday gift! Lunar Rock Tundra baby!”

Wow. I think I would like to see the video of him opening up that gift haha

Time for your thoughts on 2021 Tundra

Personally, I am a fan of Lunar Rock color on the RAV4. I cannot wait to see what it looks like on a 2021 Tacoma and 2021 Tundra and 2021 4Runner and 2021 Sequoia.

I am most excited to see it on a 4Runner and Tacoma. How about you?

I don't like any shade of silver, light gray on a vehicle. Especially a truck! That special color on the TRD's should be a color you can't get in any other year model of any Toyota either. A real eye grabber. Also Toyota should concentrate on a powerful V8 with good mileage and not study so hard on TRD special colors.
I totally agree with you...
Stop trying to get us Excited over lackluster paint colors. Give us something like a Purple Sonic Red or a Blue Flight Bomber both with Special body striping and wheel striping and interior upgrades that are actually upgrades, along with 400+ ft lbs torque with decent gas mileage! I love my Tacoma but I swear Toyota you are Killing Me on Gas Milage! Stop being average and claiming greatness. We know the dillerence.
As in gas prices today ?
Hey, I really want a truck that says TRDPRO (turd pro) on the side of my truck. Someone really dropped the ball on that one!
Pick a darker color will ya. Ford has its Raptor. Ram has it's Rebel. GMC has it's Denali. Toyota has it's....?
