Toyota TRD Pro off-road lineup debuts in Chicago

Toyota TRD Pro off-road lineup debuts in Chicago

Even though a pure off-road vehicle like the FJ Cruiser is out of its lineup, Toyota is making a play for those who love digging into the dirt with a trio of trucks.

Toyota's TRD Pro truck lineup, which includes the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro, is getting an overhaul, and the newest editions were presented at this year's Chicago Auto Show. They also combine high-temperature shock fluid and nitrogen gas pressure to handle bumps and reinforce the seals. It rides taller, has more LEDs and a hood scoop. "The Tacoma also features 2.5-inch rear shocks that use 11 bypass zones (7 compression, 4 rebound) and are paired with 2-inch piggyback reservoirs". The Tacoma TRD Pro, for example, finally gets a standard JBL sound system, along with an updated front skid plate with "TRD" red lettering, while the cat-back exhaust is accented with a new dark chrome tip.

He added the entire process of the case exposed the racism in Saskatchewan and Canada when it came to Indigenous Peoples. Boushie was shot during an altercation between the people in the SUV and Stanley, his son and his wife.

The major exterior upgrade, and one that has all the Tacoma fans excited about this release, is the new TRD Desert Air intake that will save the 278 horsepower V6 engine from all the dust and silt that could foul it in time.

Regardless of which TRD Pro model you choose, all 2019 models are equipped with new Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks to supplement the trucks' raised suspensions and extra wheel articulation. Rigid Industries fog lights are included and the truck rides on 16-inch TRD Pro black wheels. And better still, the Tacoma TRD Pro gets an optional snorkel. Inside, Entune Premium JBL Audio, integrated navigation and app suite all come standard, and there are TRD Pro-branded floor mats and leather-trimmed seats, among other features. But it still looks meaner than other versions thanks to wider tracks, a new roof rack, blacked-out grille and headlights with tinted trim. The enhanced TRD Pro lineup will be available beginning this fall in three colors: Super White, Midnight Black Metallic, and an exclusive Voodoo Blue.
