When Toyota introduced the TRD Pro range in 2015, the manufacturer was primarily targeting a limited series, sold in just a few copies. Basically, it was a pilot project, which quickly turned into one of the manufacturer’s most lucrative ranges. Due to its commercial success, Toyota improves it every year by adding new accessories, models and colors. For 2021, the tradition continues.
The color Lunar Rock will be the star color in 2021. This shade will apply to all models in the TRD Pro range , namely the Toyota Tacoma, 4Runner, Tundra and Sequoia.
Nothing has changed in terms of powertrains, however. The 3.5 and 4.0 liter V6 engines from the Tacoma and 4Runner, as well as the 5.7 liter V8 from the Tundra and Sequoia remain the same.
In addition to a new color, the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro 2021 receives new shock absorbers and new rims, as well as standard LED headlights.
Toyota is taking the opportunity to add a new sub-range of adventure vehicles called Trail. Much like the Toyota RAV4 Trail, these versions, which will be available on the Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner, will offer added value for adventure seekers, without necessarily falling into the high price of a TRD Pro. Derived from the SR5 version, the Trail models will offer the standard temporary four-wheel drive transmission.
The Toyota Tacoma Trail 2021 will be built on the Double Cab short body version and will be fitted with 16-inch TRD dark gray rims mounted on all-terrain Kevlar tires. The Tundra Trail will be based on an SR5 CrewMax Plus while the 4Runner Trail will focus on the camping aspect thanks to its Yakima LoadWarrior roof basket and its 38-liter cooler.
In addition, the colors Khaki green and Concrete gray – formerly reserved for TRD Pro versions – will be offered for these three new models.
The new Toyota TRD Pro 2021 range and the new Trail variants will arrive at dealerships across the country this fall. No Canadian prices have yet been confirmed.
