It is hardly surprising to know that Toyota had released another magnificent 4×4 due to their performance and lineup of all-terrain model pickup trucks. However, experts are quick to point out that their new pickup truck, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, has its off-road capability improved.
Under the Hood
Just like its Tacoma TRD predecessor, the TRD Pro has a 2.5-liter V-6 engine under its hood that runs in 278 horsepower and is available in either 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
It is somehow noticeable that, unlike the previous Tacoma models, the TRD Pro’s look is different due to its exterior highlights. TRD Pro badges can be seen on the tailgate and front doors. Special LED Fog Lights, Black hood scoop, fender flares and a TRD Pro skid plate is also noticeable.
However, what really makes this a Pro Version is the fact that it has its off-road equipment and suspension improved. The strengthened Bilstein Stocks on the previous Tacoma TRD Pro are replaced with a heavy duty, 2.5-inch Fox internal-bypass damper. Experts are also quick to point out that the unique TRD Coil Springs add up an additional inch of front suspension lift. Additional features include a standard towing package, a 130-amp alternator, electronic-locking rear differentials and coolers for the engine oil, transmission and power steering.
