Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Ready To Get Dirty For $40,760 MSRP

Toyota announced pricing and range details for the 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro, the most capable off-road iteration of the model that launched last fall.

The TRD Pro comes with a factory-installed off-road package tuned by TRD that includes FOX 2.5 internal bypass shocks, front springs with a 1-inch lift, rear suspension with progressive-rate off-road leaf spring and a cat-back stainless steel exhaust system.

Under the bonnet lies a 278hp 3.5-litre V6 engine paired to either a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox. A part-time 4WD with a transfer case will be standard to all models, with Toyota further adding an oil cooler, power steering cooler and a 130-amp alternator.

On the outside, the new Tacoma TRD Pro can be distinguished by the heritage-inspired front grille, the blacked-out hood scoop, new projector-beam headlights and taillights with black bezels, a set of 16-inch TRD black alloy wheels shod with Kevlar-reinforced tires, an aluminum front skid plate, black overfenders and many more.

The cabin is now decorated with numerous TRD accessories as you would expect while the heated seats are dressed in leather. A 4.2-inch digital display in the driver’s gauges hosts an integrated inclinometer and tilt gauge among projecting other useful information.

Pricing starts at $40,760 for the Double Cab manual version with the automatic priced from $42,760. The first cars will arrive in dealerships next month.

      I agree. That said, I will probably buy one of the lesser models as my next vehicle. Resale values are stellar and I have things around the house piling up that I can’t do with a 335i. A small truck is all I need, but for now, this is the smallest truck we can buy here and still the best in class IMO.
