As some of you may remember, Toyota showcased the Tacoma TX concept pickup truck fitted with various TRD (Toyota Racing Development) items at last year’s SEMA Show. Now, the Japanese automaker is introducing two new packages inspired by the concept that are called the T|X and T|X Pro and are available on the Tacoma V6 Access Cab or V6 Double Cab on both 4×2 PreRunner and 4×4 models. And if you’re wondering, the “T|X” stands for Tacoma Extreme.
Both limited edition kits are based on the Off-Road Package, which features several goodies such as an electronic locking rear diff, progressive-rate front springs, Bilstein shock absorbers, a 28-mm front stabilizer bar and B.F. Goodrich Rugged Trail tires.
The basic T|X package adds 16-inch black alloy bead-lock wheels shod in 265/70R16 tires, black tube side steps, a stainless steel exhaust tip and unique exterior decals. The MSRP is $1,699, which Toyota claims, represents a saving of $754 compared with a standard Tacoma fitted with these options separately.
The T|X Pro Package simply adds a TRD cat-back performance exhaust system to give the V6 model a throatier sound and, according to the company, a small boost in power. It’s also priced at $1,699, offering buyers savings of $720.
Toyota said it will start accepting orders for the 2011 Tacoma T|X Pro Package now, while the T|X Package will launch in September.
