Toyota’s new off-road package features quite a lineup of performance upgrades.


Developed with Toyota’s vaunted TRD team, the new off-road packages have many suspension upgrades. Toyota says the knowledge and experience gained through TRD’s numerous wins at the grueling Baja 500 and 1000 helped them develop these off-road packages.

Specifications for all TRD Pro Series

Each Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner comes with:

  • TRD Bilstein shocks with remote reservoirs
  • TRD-tuned front springs
  • TRD front skid plate
  • Unique front grille with “TOYOTA” badging (pays tribute to early iconic Toyota models)
  • TRD floor mats
  • TRD shift knobs
  • Black wheels

Also, Toyota is announcing a new Inferno color will be added to its lineup. This hot red is joined by a black and super white as the color choices for the TRD Pro package.

The 4Runner already is an off-road machine, now it is more equipped than ever? Wow!

TRD Pro 4Runner

Last but not least, the 4Runner will be equipped with:

  • 1.5” lift for the front of the vehicle
  • 1” of additional wheel travel
  • All-new 17-inch TRD all-black alloy wheels
  • Black TRD Pro badges
  • Black front and rear lower bumper accents

While the interior and exterior changes are pretty cool, what really makes this package work is the suspension upgrades. The lift with increased wheel travel (not all lift kits give you this) and the improved shocks with TRD tuning are going to have fans calling this package the affordable SVT Raptor alternative.
