2017 Tacoma TRD Pro announced by Toyota

Toyota's North American TRD Pro Series range is getting another member. The new arrival is based on the 2017 Tacoma double cab pick-up and – like the rest of the line-up – it's aimed at serious off-road users.

To help impress that target audience, an enhanced suspension set-up comprises front springs with a 1” lift, rear progressive-rate leaf springs and Fox 2.5 Internal Bypass dampers.

Furthermore, part-time four-wheel drive, an electronically-controlled locking rear differential and 16” black alloy wheels shod with Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Kevlar-reinforced tyres are part of the specification too.

Also fitted are an aluminium front skid plate, wheel arch extensions, a 'heritage' grille, LED front fog lights and some unique badges. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, an upgraded audio system, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation all come as standard, plus there's a 4.2” Multi-Information Display which boasts an inclinometer and a tilt gauge.

The only available engine is a 3.5 litre V6 gasoline unit with direct fuel injection and variable valve timing. Buyers will have a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearboxes, though.

If they opt for the former, then Active Traction Control gets added to the equipment list. Alternatively, the latter transmission is combined with Crawl Control and five-mode Multi-Terrain Select.

Deliveries of the 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro are scheduled to begin later this year.
