For decades, Toyota has been building trucks that go off-road like crazy. Here in Chicago, the 2015 Toyota Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner TRD Pro Series are the latest offerings from the automaker that are designed to enhance that ability.
All Beefed Up
The idea is to beef up the suspension and off-road components to make them a little bit sturdier. You get Bilstein shocks, more skid plates and, of course, a unique look. The great news here is that it's all factory-installed, so these trucks are Toyota-tuned, Toyota-designed and Toyota-tested.
Best of Both Worlds
TRD, which stands for Toyota Racing Development, is an in-house tuning arm that's spent years developing Toyota trucks, SUVs and cars for performance applications. You get the best of both worlds: good on-road and also good off-road.
Now, if you want one of these, you might want to get in line. The 2015 Toyota Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner TRD Pro Series go on sale in the fall of 2014.
