TORRANCE, California — The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, an off-road version of the midsize truck designed by Toyota Racing Development, will arrive at Toyota dealerships in late August, starting at $41,700, including a $940 destination charge.
It is spun off the Tacoma TRD Pro Off-Road 4x4 double-cab model and has been praised for its Stormtrooper-like appearance.
The base price is for a 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro 4x4 double-cab model with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a six-speed manual transmission.
The top-of-the-line 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro 4x4 double-cab model with the same engine and a six-speed automatic transmission is priced at $43,700, including destination charge.
Aimed at off-road enthusiasts, the Tacoma TRD Pro is available in three exterior colors: Cement, Barcelona Red Metallic and Super White.
Standard equipment includes a V6 Tow package and an electronically controlled rear differential. Crawl control is standard on trucks with the automatic transmission.
Key details include special headlights and taillights to distinguish it from the base Tacoma, along with 16-inch TRD wheels and a high-performance off-road suspension.
The cabin features Black TRD Pro leather-trimmed heated front seats, an Entune premium audio system and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.
Automatic-transmission models are equipped with a Toyota multi-terrain select system with five modes. The system regulates wheel spin by adjusting engine throttle and traction control.
A GoPro mount is located on the windshield for those who want to star in their own behind-the-wheel documentary.
Edmunds says: This highly anticipated version of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma is ready to race out of Toyota showrooms and hit the trail starting in just a few weeks.
