Toyota’s TRD (Toyota Racing Development) Pro series trucks are an iteration of the famous off-road race trucks that have competed and won in various extreme endurance races, such as the Baja 1000. This fall, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma will join the Tundra and 4Runner with it’s very own available TRD Pro package. Aimed at the those who love to challenge their truck’s performance and off-road capabilities, the new Tacoma TRD Pro comes with an array of new features that is sure to put a smile on your face.
Tough Appearance for a Tough Truck
The 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro maintains its rugged look with a few additional details to set it apart from the crowd. The Tacoma is available in three exterior colors: Super White, Barcelona Red Metallic, and the all-new Cement which is unique to the TRD Pro. 16-inch TRD black alloy wheels with Goodyear Wrangler® All-Terrain Kevlar®-reinforced tires give the truck a menacing stance, while providing complete control over the harshest terrain. Black headlight and taillight bezels, along with Rigid Industries® LED Fog Lights, further increase the tough appearance while still lighting up the trail ahead. A heritage-inspired TOYOTA front grille and and blacked-out hood scoop graphic brings the whole package together.
Sporty Interior Combined with Usable Technology
Just because the new 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro is an extremely capable off-road machine doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice comfort. Coming with black 4-way adjustable leather-trimmed seats, a TRD shift knob and TRD Pro floor mats creates a comfortable environment that still reminds you of the available performance. Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), and rear parking assist sonar all help guide you in those tricky situations. As in all new Tacoma models, the TRD Pro also features a GoPro® mount on the windshield to capture every adventure you take on.
What makes the TRD Pro so special is the incredible performance features that come standard. FOX 2.5 Internal Bypass shocks, TRD-tuned front springs with a 1-inch lift and a TRD-tuned rear suspension with progressive-rate off-road leaf springs allow you to race across any terrain all day without any loss of capability from the suspension. Also standard is Crawl Control (CRAWL) and Multi-terrain Select which helps you get out and stay out of the nastiest of conditions. A TRD Performance exhaust is a subtle reminder of the truck’s power by giving it the sound it deserves.
TRD has been developing engines and chassis for Toyota racing activities for nearly 4 decades. The motorsports-derived parts and accessories can be found on Toyota, Lexus, and Scion models around the world. For a Toyota truck to receive the TRD Pro badge is certainly high praise. With an array of extreme off-road features, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is sure to fulfill even the highest of expectations.
