I was wiping off my passenger side window because it had a streak on it and I noticed that my dashboard was Navy Blue. Other plastics are black. Has this happened to anyone? I have not put any chemicals on it except the one Toyota did when they cleaned it. They called themselves detailing the truck (long story).

I've notices something similar on the steering wheels. The BT controls are black, but the pad and wheel have faded to a really dark gray. It bugged the crap out of me when I got the truck, but I've just learned to live with it.

I thought about that at first, but when they detailed it was two months ago. And they used some type of dressing. And it has all faded off. I use a damp micro fiber with water to wipe the dust off. Going to take it to Toyota. In the next few days. After looking over the whole truck I have noticed some of the pillars are that way as well.

The interior colors don't match very well in the 2nd Gen Tundras. Mine had a Sand Beige interior, and I noticed that the grab handles had a greenish hue that didn't match the rest of the interior. Your problem seems a little more noticeable than the factory inconsistencies between different parts, though. UV damage seems unlikely for such a new truck. I would guess it was some type of chemical reaction from whatever the dash was cleaned with???

I noticed this tonight as well after reading this post a few days ago. Mine still has less than 1000 miles on it and the dash looks like a navy blue color. I would think its a problem from the factory... Oh yeah, 2013 White RW w/black interior..
