2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Hits Showrooms in the Fall

CHICAGO — 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 the fall. The Tacoma TRD Pro debuted at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.

Pricing will be announced closer to the truck's launch date.

Shortly after the Tacoma TRD Pro's rollout, the buzz was already starting about its Stormtrooper-like look, especially in the new Cement exterior color.

It is spun off the Tacoma TRD Pro Off-Road 4x4 Double Cab model.

The Texas-built Tacoma TRD Pro is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a standard six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed automatic transmission is optional.

Also standard is 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.

Toyota also confirmed that 2017 Toyota 4Runner and Tundra TRD models will debut later this year and hinted that a special-production TRD version of the Toyota RAV4 compact SUV is in the works.

Key Tacoma competitors include the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Nissan Frontier.

Edmunds says: Toyota's TRD vehicles are pretty much sold as soon as they roll off the delivery truck. It's best to keep in close contact with your dealer to get this latest model.
