Given the performance inheritance and the available lineup of all-terrain-designed models of Toyota, its prologue of a hard-core adaptation for the model year 2017 is hardly surprising. Yet, here it is in the structure of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, which goes on sale in late 2016 as the successor to an analogous model derived from the last-generation Tacoma TRD Pro.
Although the new vehicle assumes the same look of its predecessor, it comes with a redesigned front part, and with an efficient terrain management system to tackle any sort of terrains, including the rough ones. It also comes with improved suspensions and shocks and a set of attractively designed alloy wheels with quality all-land tires.

2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Changes, Exterior
As with the earlier Taco special, as well as the present Tundra TRD Pro and 4Runner models, the new Tacoma TRD Pro truck symbolizes an intensive effort to ratchet up the off-road ability of the truck. Although it delivers on its mission, the TRD conversion is less complete, although less expensive than the one employed by Ford to construct the beastly F-150 Raptor.
New Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro 2017 color options are restricted to three colors, like Super White, Barcelona Red Metallic and Cement, but buyers will have the choice to opt for either a six-velocity manual or a mechanical gearbox. Along with the TRD Pro’s quality TOYOTA block-imprinted grille and black 16-inch wheels, enclosed with Goodyear Wrangler all-land tires, a horde of other external highlights remind that the next generation Tacoma TRD Pro is not a run-of-the-mill model.
These include: Black fender flares. LED fog lights from Rigid Industries. Projector-beam headlamps with black bezels. LED daylight running lights. Black tail-lamp bezels. “TRD Pro” emblem on its front doors. Black color “TRD Pro” emblem and “4×4” emblem on its tailgate. Body-colored grille border. Blacked-out hood shovel. Color-keyed back bumper.
However, what really makes the new Tacoma a TRD Pro is its suspension and its associated off-road equipment. Distinctive TRD coil springs offer an extra inch of suspension lift in the front, whereas the special evolutionary-rate leaf springs at the back assist to get better air circulation and bump incorporation. A hardwearing, 2.5-inch Fox interior-bypass damper positions at each corner and replaces the reinforced Bilstein shocks, mounted on the previous-generation Tacoma TRD Pro.
The new model Tacoma TRD Pro comes outfitted with other beneficial features, such as: Electronic-locking back differential. Limited-skid center differential in the electronic transfer case of the part-time four-wheel-drive mode. Normal towing package. Coolers for the automatic transmission, power steering, engine oil. 130-amp alternator. As the manual-shifting models achieve with a individually tuned traction-control arrangement for optimizing the grip devoid of cutting the throttle input, automatic versions get a five-mode Multi-Terrain Select traction-control system, hill-start assist and Crawl Control.
2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Interior
Similar to exterior, the 2017 Tacoma interior also comes loaded with lots of beneficial features. The cabin comes with indoor elements, such as: GoPro-mounted windshield for catching all those unforgettable off-road occasions. Leather seating with heated front seats. “TRD Pro” emblem on the front seats. Entune premium acoustic system with App Suite and navigation. Leather-wrapped steering wheel. TRD ground mats and shift knob. 4.2-inch multi-information exhibit.
Besides the standard internal features mentioned above, the new model truck also comes prepared with other indoor elements, such as: Hill Start Assist Control. 4WDemand recreational four-wheel drive. Automatic limited-slip differential. Engine oil cooler. Power steering oil cooler. Automatic transmission. Digitally controlled locking back differential. Mud Terrain Select system of Toyota. Crawl Control. Active Traction Control.
