Toyota announced new updates for its TRD Pro lineup. That includes models such as Sequoia, Tundra and 4Runner TRD Pro models. However, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is the most exciting model for numerous reasons. Tacoma is one of the most reliable mid-size pickup trucks in the world. For 2021, Tacoma TRD Pro will get a new exterior color and further mechanical upgrades.
Of course, Toyota will tweak the design, but don’t expect significant visual changes. The interior will feature the latest high-tech features and systems. However, the engine will remain, which means Tacoma TRD Pro will retain its amazing off-road ability. The new model will be launched by the end of the year.
2021 Tacoma TRD Pro Available in New Color
The 2020 model is recognizable by its Army Green exterior paint. However, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will now get new exterior paint that replaces the current one. It is the Lunar Rock color, and we think it looks beautiful. No doubts, Tacoma TRD Pro will be recognizable once again, and it will make a real stand out in the crowded roads.
A new color is a perfect fit for this off-road trim level, but Toyota will also focus on some other things. Arriving pickup truck will get mid-cycle refreshments. That includes various minor exterior upgrades such as additional chrome accents and a larger hood scoop. The wheels are looking more aggressive, but the rest of the vehicle should largely remain.
The interior of the upcoming 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will also get mid-cycle updates. The Japanese automaker will look to deliver more equipment than before. Moreover, the technology department is up to date, and that includes the infotainment system. TRD Pro variant sits above other trim levels, and it provides more premium cabin.
Moreover, the list of standard amenities is longer so you will get standard all-weather floor mats, JBL audio system and leather upholstery. However, QJ wireless charging pad is optional, along with the latest driver-assistance aids. Still, we think the comfort is admirable, and the ride is both smooth and quiet.
Potent V6 Engine Still Available
According to the latest reports, new 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro won’t introduce a new engine option. That means a 3.5-liter V6 remains. This gasoline engine delivers 278 horsepower, and it is a very reliable powertrain option. Moreover, potent V6 generates 265 lb-ft of torque. Both six-speed automatic and manual transmission are available.
Furthermore, Tacoma TRD Pro offers a part-time electronically controlled AWD setup. The off-road-oriented pickup truck is rated at 17 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. However, Toyota will deliver some mechanical updates for 2021. Retuned shocks will deliver better comfort during the high speeds, according to Toyota.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Release Date and Price
Toyota plans to introduce its Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner models at the same time. First reports suggested October as a possible release date. However, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will most likely hit the dealerships later in 2020. The price will start at $46,000, while the base trim level costs $27,000.
