Toyota has revealed pricing for the all-new 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and it will start at $40,760 for a double-cab manual. The automatic will run just $2k more and starts at $42,760. This is quite the value compared to other stock off-road trucks like the new Ford Raptor which is expected to start at around $50k. With its more nimble size and slew of off-road gear, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro should be a great seller.
In this post, we detailed the many upgrades the TRD Pro offers over the other Tacoma packages like the Off-Road and Sport offerings. While the $40,760 price represents a price difference of nearly $9k over the Off-Road package, they are really different trucks built for different customers. The TRD Pro is basically “beyond badass” as Toyota’s Mike Sweers, chief engineer for the Tundra and Tacoma, recently told us. The Off-Road and Sport packages both offer a slew of features that the majority of owners will never fully push to the max, the TRD Pro is really for the owner who will max out the off-road capability.
Highlighting these differences are the mechanical upgrades Toyota incorporated into the TRD Pro thanks to the input from its own off-road racing team. Among these upgrades are:
- FOX 2.5 Internal Bypass shocks tuned by TRD
- TRD-tuned front springs with a 1-inch lift
- TRD-tuned rear suspension with progressive-rate off-road leaf spring
- TRD cat-back stainless steel exhaust system
Plus, each Tacoma TRD Pro comes with 4WD and Automatic Limited-Slip Differential. Plus, the Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) and Crawl Control systems make it really difficult to get this truck stuck.
For looks, Toyota made the TRD Pro stand out pretty distinctly against its brethren. Each Tacoma TRD Pro comes with:
- 16-inch TRD black alloy wheels with Goodyear Wrangler® All-Terrain Kevlar®-reinforced tires
- TRD Pro aluminum front skid plate
- Rigid Industries® LED fog lights
- New projector-beam headlights with black bezels, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and auto on/off feature
- New taillights with black bezels
- TRD Pro badge on front door with diamond-pattern knurled finish
- Black TRD Pro and 4×4 rear tailgate badging
Plus, the blacked-out hood scoop and special TOYOTA front grille make it really stand out.
Finally, the interior has been upgraded with plenty of TRD badging on the seats, shift knob and floor mats.
The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will hit dealer lots later this month and we will get to test it out at an off-road course in the coming months. Stay tuned for our review!
