Toyota Unveils 2017 Tacoma TRD PRO

Today at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota unveiled the latest edition of the Tacoma lineup, the TRD PRO. This truck takes off-roading to the next level with upgraded shocks, front lift, upgraded rear suspension and blacked out styling throughout. It raises the bar on off-roading yet again.

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO sure looks bad ass.



The Tacoma TRD PRO is based off a Tacoma TRD Off-Road 4×4 Double Cab Short Bed in either a 6-speed manual or automatic. It will be available in three colors: Cement, Barcelona Red Metallic, and Super White and each truck will feature several exterior upgrades like:

  • 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
  • Projector-beam headlights with black bezels, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and auto on/off feature
  • 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, each Tacoma TRD Pro will also come equipped with a heritage-inspired TOYOTA front grille with color-keyed surround, blacked out hood scoop and graphic, color-keyed power outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, color-keyed door handles, black overfenders, and a color-keyed rear bumper.

On the inside, Toyota added an integrated inclinometer and tilt gauge. Plus, each Tacoma TRD PRO comes with:

  • Black TRD Pro leather-trimmed heated front seats with TRD Pro logo located in the headrest
  • 4-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and 4-way adjustable front passenger seat
  • EntuneTM Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite
  • TRD shift knob
  • TRD Pro floor mats
  • Leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth® hands-free phone controls
  • Rear parking assist sonar
  • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)

The GoPro mount will also be a part of the TRD PRO.

With the lift, tires and styling, the Tacoma visually seems to have a taller stance helping give it a more rugged look.

While the powertrain, CRAWL control, Multi-terrain Select system, trailer sway control and locking rear differential, among other features, are carried over from other Tacoma models, Toyota ramps up the “bad ass” nature of the TRD PRO by adding:

 

  • 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

No word on pricing as of yet. The new 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO will at dealers this fall.

    Still no plans to upgrade from 2013 TRD Offload, but if I was in the market, THIS would be the truck to buy.

    “It raises the bar on off-roading yet again.”

    I mean, it’s a cool truck.. but what bar is it raising exactly? I don’t see anything truly unique, seems like a Rubicon would still be better at off-roading than this. Fanboy claims like that are just off putting.

      You are missing the point of this truck. It isn’t for rock crawling, it is for desert racing. And yes, it is better than the previous generation Tacoma TRD PRO with the new 2016 modifications. Also, it is cheaper and still as capable as a Raptor, so yes it raises the bar in mid-size truck desert racing performance.
