Toyota TRD Pro off-road lineup debuts in Chicago

TRD Pro lineup

TRD Pro lineup

The 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro is now fitted with more under armor than a gym-obsessed crossfitter, in addition to a cat-back TRD exhaust system, 16-inch TRD Pro wheels in an offset that provides a 1-inch wider track, and more TRD badges than a Toyota showroom. All the Pro models will feature Fox 2.5-inch Internal Bypass Shocks. Up front, the Fox shocks are paired with TRD-tuned springs designed for ride comfort and to also produce additional lift. For 2019 the series will include the Tundra, 4Runner, and Tacoma. While vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler and Ford F-150 Raptor tend to draw the most attention in off-road circles, Toyota's TRD Pro lineup also offers highly capable, tried and tested performance for when you're ready to leave the pavement behind. The Tacoma TRD Pro uses shocks with 46mm piston and 8 bypass zones combined with springs that lift the front of the truck by an inch.

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will be available later in the fall (along with the corresponding 4Runner and Tundra TRD Pros); pricing will be announced closer to its on-sale date.

That vehicle has Entune Premium JBL audio with a subwoofer and integrated NAV.

The biggest upgrade for the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro is the addition of the TRD Desert Air Intake.

For 2019, the entire TRD Pro family rides on 2.5-inch TRD Pro-exclusive Fox Internal Bypass shocks that have been tuned specifically for each vehicle.

Tundra TRD Pro buyers can look forward to LEDs for the headlights and fog lights as well as revised grille and hood designs. And better still, the Tacoma TRD Pro gets an optional snorkel. 18-inch BBS forged-aluminum, five-spoke satin black wheels have been added, wrapped in Michelin P275/65R18 all-terrain tires. The Star Safety System includes stability and traction control, an anti-lock brake system, brake-force distribution and smart-stop technology. Tundra and Tacoma also get, "Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P), which features Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Sway Warning System (SWS), Automatic High Beams (AHB) and high-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)".
