The popular pickup truck comes in various versions but this is by far the most exciting one. This is a highly capable off-roader, which offers not just impressive performances, but also a bunch of interesting styling details. Just like the rest of the lineup, this version was also updated recently. There are some brand-new features, including new suspension components, new interior features and tech goodies. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will come on a year later, so we probably won’t see too many changes.
Moreover, we don’t expect to see any particular modifications, except for the addition of a couple of more standard features. That also indicated that the new model should hit the market in a typical time of year, which in this case means the last quarter of 2020. Changes in price aren’t expected either.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Specs
In terms of base design characteristics, this model comes with several mechanical upgrades. The recent update has brought additional novelties, so we presume that the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will continue in the same way. We saw new Fox bypass internal shocks, while the suspension has been lifted for about an inch. Other than that, there is a bunch of other off-road upgrades, such as locking differential, reinforced skid plates, off-road wheels, off-road traction control, crawl control etc. All these things help Tacoma TRD to be one of the most capable off-roaders on the market.
Naturally, this truck comes with a bunch of styling details that emphasize its off-road capability. The first thing you’ll notice is a different grille design, which features “Toyota” lettering instead of the famous logo and comes completely blacked, with a different pattern. Also, there are unique wheels, with all-terrain tires, graphics and similar things. In the recent update, one of the most interesting novelties was a new Army Green color, which is exclusive to this trim level. When it comes to the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, anything more than new color options would be a surprise.
The interior suffered most with the recent update, so the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro should carry on without important changes. Speaking of this particular version, some of the distinctive details are seats with TRD Pro stitching. Also, the interior comes in the black color scheme only. When it comes to interesting features, we should mention a new infotainment system. It runs on a bigger 8-inch screen and also supports smartphone goodies like Android Auto, Amazon Alexa and Apple CarPlay.
Another big novelty was the addition of two camera-based systems, Panoramic View and Multi-Terrain View Monitor. The two systems consist of multiple cameras, which show you everything that is happening around and underneath the vehicle.
Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Accessories
Given the performance-oriented character, it’s no wonder that this model comes with plenty of accessories in the offer. We presume that the 2021Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro could bring a couple of novelties but that the things will generally remain the same.
The list of available accessories is long, but there are some that are offered exclusively for this trim level. You can get additional graphics, wheels and similar things. On the inside, an attractive TRD Pro gear shifter is available, both for the manual and automatic gearbox.
Also, there is a number of performance accessories, starting from a performance exhaust system, which comes chromed or blacked. Also, there are nice things like radiator and oil caps, as well as a TRD Pro air filter.
Naturally, you can also get accessories that are available in other trim levels, including all kinds of bed additions, exterior and interior upgrades.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Engines
Things under the hood probably won’t change for the next year. The current model features a well-known 3.5-liter V6, which is good for 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Both automatic and manual transmissions are available. In both cases, you can count on pretty good driving dynamics and overall performances.
In the past several months, before the update, we’ve been hearing a lot of stories about a diesel version of this truck. It was also expected from the TRD Pro model to get this engine. Now when it’s clear it won’t happen, various reports suggest that an oil-burner could arrive in the next year, for the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. In our opinion, that definitely won’t happen, although such a version makes sense, given the fact that many rivals are preparing diesel versions.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Release Date and Price
The 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro won’t feature bigger changes. So, we don’t expect any surprises when it comes to price and release date. The new model should arrive at a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2020. The current model starts at 44.000 dollars and we don’t expect bigger changes for the next year.
