2012 Toyota Tacoma

Toyota is launching a new hardcore special edition of its Tacoma pickup, built for the off-road racing enthusiast in all of us.

The new pickup, called the Tacoma T/X Baja Series, is inspired by desert truck racing like Mexico's grueling Baja 1000- A race where Toyota trucks have taken the win twice.

The T/X in the truck's name stands for Toyota Extreme, a pretty fitting name for Tacoma's newest and most hard core off-roader model. The T/X Baja trucks come with the TRD off road package, which includes an electronic locking differential, special traction control, hill start and hill descent controls.

The T/X Baja trucks shouldn't be too hard to spot on the road, each truck will get a relatively aggressive set of BF Goodrich tires, bead lock off-roading style wheels, a TRD exhaust and a massive graphic package.

A re-worked suspension gives the front end a two-inch lift, but make no mistake, the new setup is more than just looks. The normal equipment has been swapped out for some racing inspired Bilstein shocks and springs that give the truck more wheel movement and more sensitive damping.

Truck lovers will be able to pick up a Baja Series in two different flavors. The package is being tested on the Access and Double Cab versions of the Tacoma, and Toyota says it is considering a PreRunner model as well.

Under the hood, the T/X Baja trucks will be packing Toyota's 4.0 liter V6 engine which can be paired up with either an automatic or six speed manual gearbox.

The Baja comes with the other changes that were done to the Tacoma for 2012. All of the new pickups will sport a new hood, grill, headlights and front bumper. Tacoma interiors are set for some tweaking as well: The steering wheel, gauges and instrument panel are all different in the new trucks.
