The upcoming 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is about to introduce additional changes. It is one of the best-selling pickup trucks in the United States and Toyota is now ready to improve every aspect of its famous model. If the Tacoma Limited is too fancy for you and you like off-roading, that’s where the TRD Pro variant kicks in.
Unlike the other Tacoma variants, TRD Pro offers a lot of mechanical upgrades, a more aggressive design, and a more premium interior. Reportedly, next-gen Tacoma is on the way, but this is not official yet. Anyway, Tacoma TRD Pro will surely introduce a couple of dramatic changes. Toyota moved the production of 2022 Tacoma to Mexico after the 2021 Tacoma leaves the plant in Texas.
2022 Tacoma TRD Pro Colors and Dimensions
New 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro won’t change in terms of dimensions. The famous mid-size pickup truck is 225.5 inches long and 70.6 inches tall. Moreover, Tacoma is 75.2 inches wide and it comes with a 140.6 inches long wheelbase. Exterior changes will happen for sure, as we expect a revised heritage grille, modernized headlights, and more aggressive bodywork.
Moreover, some changes in terms of exterior colors will also happen. The popular Army Green color will be replaced with the new Lunar Rock shade. Besides that, Tacoma TRD Pro will offer colors such as Midnight Black, Silver Sky, Cement, Super White, Voodoo Blue, and Barcelona Red. All of the mentioned colors are metallic, except the Cement paint.
Optional Packages and Equipment
Again, the manufacturer will surely update its offer of optional packages. However, some of the existing packages will be on offer once again. The 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro can be had with the Advanced Technology Package. This option provides additional safety aids such as blind-spot monitoring or rear cross-traffic alert. It also adds a mesh front grille and multi-terrain monitor.
The Blackout Package is a popular theme that comes with a blacked-out chrome exhaust tip, blacked-out emblem and generally, it is a darkened variant. The TRD Off Road Premium is the most expensive package. It comes with a larger display, automatic headlights, additional cameras, moonroof, and heated front seats.
Potent V6 Engine is Here Once Again
The 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will once again deploy the same 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine. This reliable powertrain option develops 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and a manual gearbox won’t be on offer, for some reason. A four-wheel-drive system comes as standard and Tacoma TRD Pro delivers 20 mpg combined. Lastly, Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro has a towing capacity of 6,500 pounds.
2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Release Date, Price
The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will cost more than the current model. However, we still don’t know if the next-gen Tacoma is coming in 2022. It does make perfect sense, but this is not official yet. Anyway, the new TRD Pro variant will cost around $46,000. We also expect a couple of upgrades under the skin, so we are waiting for the manufacturer to reveal more details. As we already said, the production of the Tacoma mid-size pickup is moving from Texas to Mexico.
