    Was driving around today and saw two white basic tundras (steel wheels)with a black mask over the front kind of like a bra. Also a Sequoia with the same bra. All of these guys were following each other. We do have Toyota main offices here. Although I'm pretty sure most of them are moving to Texas. Just kind a wondering what I saw. Usually when I see a new car being test driven before it's actually come out, it is completely covered. This was just the front end of each and the back half looking like the current version tundra and sequoias. So I'm wondering if the lineup of tundra and sequoia got a small front end update.
    I keep hoping they're going to make a Sequoia with the new body style.

    It's all good man. Drive safely first.

    In the rear view, did you see the exhaust? Was it larger?

    No worries ... I'm too deep in debt with my current toys to even consider something new.

    Yeah I snapped this one real quick I forgot. It looks like they are trying to appeal to the Big three HD guys.



    Actually it just happened so fast that I didn't have time to absorb everything. I was just like WTF! I was concentrating on the front grill trying to see through the mesh.
    And I was in my slow ass 1995 GMC single cab dualy with a service bed. "school district truck".
    There was no way in hell I could've turned around and caught up to them. Plus of course safety first, I've got to be a good boy at work. The public is watching.
    I've seen them driving around other models before but this is the first time I saw a Tundra and Sequoia.

    That's bottom picture is heavily disguised @csuviper . Kinda reminds me of a GM product for some reason.

    Any clue what it is? 4Runner?

    Over the years since I've been here in Denver I've seen numerous covered/semi covered test vehicles. Mostly up the road going to Mt Evans from Idaho Springs. From Porches to full size trucks. Once saw a few Mahindra 4WD diesel wanna be trucks (never sold here in US). This area is a major altitude testing ground for auto mfrs. I never seem to get a pic.

    Probably all come with the Pro grill now and maybe a slightly different hood design.

    Finally snapped a couple pics. It was last second and I just made a right turn and saw them sitting there at the turn lane. I literally stopped as the lights were read in all directions and no one was coming yet. I missed the front of the tundra though.

    Agreed. Looks like a Chevy logo on the center caps, also the overall shape, etc.
