Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is ready to get down and dirty off-road

Cars
[MUSIC] How do you make a pick-up truck instantly cooler Well, as shown by the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, and the Nissan Titan Warrior concept, you build an off-road version, which is exactly what Toyota has done here with the new 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro. To open Tacoma's off-road abilities, engineers did most of their work on the suspension, installing Fox internal bypass shock absorbers, new TRD front springs providing a one inch lift, And progressive rate off-road [UNKNOWN] springs out back. It rides on 16-inch black TRD wheels, wrapped with kevlar-reinforced Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires. To help find even more off-road grip, the TRD pro's four-wheel drive system includes an automatic limited slip differential and electronic rear locking differential. [UNKNOWN] While a 3.5 liter V6 engine is the only engine available shoppers do have a choice between a 60 manual 460 automatic transmission which does quitely alter the trucks features list depending on which one you. Manual equipped trucks get an active traction control system while automatic versions benefit from a crawl control system and a hill start assist. The Tacoma TRD Pro wear is a special heritage inspired Toyota front grill, blacked out hood scoop, aluminum front skid plate, LED fog light, TRD pro badges and black bezel headlights, tail lights In over fenders. The interior gets dressed with black TRD Pro leather seats, a TRD shift knob, and TRD floor mats. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will arrive at dealers this fall, but pricing information hasn't been announced yet. For reference, the 2015 model started at about $37,000, which may or may not be worth having a Tacoma off road, WIth some additional four wheel drive goodies, a [INAUDIBLE] stance and some sick styling touches. But, without question the TRD [INAUDIBLE] does push the cool factor of this Tacoma a bit higher.
