Toyota has become one of the major players when it comes to off-road vehicles. Several years ago they were barely on the map. With vehicles such as 4Runner, Hilux and Tundra, this Japanese manufacturer set new standards in the car industry. Japanese are well-known for their technology, and this is the field where Toyota (and other Japanese car producers) is the leader. Their vehicles are always equipped, with the latest technology you can rely on every time. Today we decided to introduce the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro to you.
2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Modifications
You may ask yourself what is the difference between regular Tacoma and 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro? They are an almost lookalike, but the later one is improved version of the Tacoma. It is going to get completely new equipment which is better adjusted for an off-road ride. This equipment is produced by Toyota Racing Development, a subsidiary which is focused on improving vehicles manufactured at Toyota’s factories. This package is going to give Tacoma new super powers and help it to differentiate from the competent cars. It targets all thrill-seekers who spend a lot of their time driving on rough terrains.
Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Design
It comes in three different colors: Super White, Barcelona Red Metallic, and Cement. It won’t differ much from the regular Tacoma from the outside, but when you take a closer look, there are plenty of special details. Reinforced tires will be used along with 16-inch black alloy wheels produced by Goodyear. LED fog lights are going to be produced by Rigid Industries and it’ll also have LED Daytime Running Lights. Also, designers included black over fenders, color-keyed bumper and outside mirrors with turn signal indicators.
Interior is going to look sporty, but Toyota emphasizes this doesn’t mean it won’t be comfortable. Special TRD Pro heated seats were going to be wrapped in leather. Even floor mats are going to have special design developed by TRD. Features that can come in handy are Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitor, which are used in several other models produced by Toyota. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will also have rear-parking assist sonar and telescopic steering wheel. It includes odometer, fuel economy, temperature, and has inclinometer. Many Adventurists will be thrilled with GoPro mount system.
Since 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is produced to be used as an off-road vehicle, safety is the issue we must pay attention to. Seven types of airbags are going to be used. It is going to be equipped with both front and rear-head air bags as well as special air bags for knees. Side and front air bags are also included. Technology helps to improve safety since there are safety locks, spot monitor, brake assist, traction control and much more.
Engine and Fuel Economy
There are no many details about what is under the hood of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro we have got at least some info so far. It seems that six-cylinder gasoline engine is going to be used under the hood, but we weren’t able to find out what the output is. On the other hand, fuel economy is estimated at 21 mpg which is not too different than regular Tacoma has. Power is transferred to rear wheels while the six-speed automatic gearbox is the only option.
Price and Release Date of 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro
We must let you down, but there is no reliable information about the price at this point. We consulted several people, but no one answered this question. One thing is sure, though – the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will be more expensive than the regular model. Don’t expect this truck in showrooms before the end of this year. Until then we can just hope Toyota is going to release additional info about the engine and the price.
