2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

When you’re looking for a midsize pickup truck that can do more than carrying around a small load of stuff, the Toyota Tacoma is here to help. Thanks to rugged four-wheel drive and commanding V6 performance, this pickup goes above and beyond the competition. Now, Toyota is taking this truck to the next level with the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro performance package, which transforms the Tacoma into a vehicle that’s genuinely capable of tackling serious off-road conditions with ease. Find out what the TRD Pro package includes and see how it can take you off the beaten path.

Off-Road Performance Capabilities

The 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro has been designed to offer unprecedented off-road capabilities for the small and midsize pickup truck segment. This begins with its rugged chassis and four-wheel drive (4×4) system. You’ll also get Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Kevlar-reinforced tires and a TRD Pro aluminum front skid plate. Also included are TRD-specific suspension and exhaust enhancements, such as FOX 2.5 Internal Bypass shocks, TRD-tuned front springs with a one-inch lift, and a TRD-tuned rear suspension with a progressive-rate off-road leaf spring. Finally, you’ll get an electronic transfer case and an electronic automatic limited-slip differential.

Powertrain Performance

Like other versions of high-performance 2017 Toyota Tacoma models, the upcoming TRD Pro will come powered by a 3.5L V6 engine and your option of a six-speed manual transmission with a clutch start/stop feature or a six-speed automatic transmission. Look for this vehicle’s powertrain to have a total output of around 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, and fuel economy numbers around 23 mpg highway and 18 mpg city. The V6 Tow Package with a Class-IV towing receiver hitch and a trailer-sway control makes the upcoming Tacoma TRD Pro and excellent choice for towing as well.
