Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show

Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show

That hole in the Tundra lineup was filled by the new-for-2018 TRD Sport trim, which gave Toyota engineers time to get the return of the TRD Pro just right and dressed to crush the backcountry.

The new Fox Shocks are an obvious ploy to try to keep up with the Chevy Colorado's Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSV) dampers.

Rob Gronkowski loses 'weapons, safes' in Tremendous Bowl break
Police are investigating a burglary at New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski's house in Foxboro . Gronkowski, at 28, has had a long history of injuries from back and knee injuries to concussions .

The updates to the 2019 4Runner TRD Pro include a new roof rack, a 1/4-inch-thick front skid plate, 17-inch matte-black TRD alloy wheels, and Nitto Terra Grappler P265/70R17 A/T tires. Of course, they're all tuned for the needs of each truck. A larger front sway bar is employed to retain crisp steering and refined road manners. The rear Fox shocks pair with a piggyback reservoir to hold extra oil volume, which helps maintain peak damping performance during extreme use. The new shocks get firmer as the suspension travel gets closer to maximum. Depending on options, a 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro could come with an electronic terrain management system to work with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. We suspect the Tacoma will soon be featured in dozens of such videos. Next year's Tacoma TRD Pro pickups will have a new front skid plate that will carry the TRD designation in red lettering, and the cat-back TRD exhaust will have a new Black Chrome end piece, too.

The TRD Pro series goes on sale in the fall with a choice of three colors for each vehicle: super white, midnight black metallic or voodoo blue, the latter exclusive to TRD Pro. It has an upscale stereo, the Entune Premium JBL Audio with subwoofer amplifier and Integrated Navigation and App Suite, along with TRD Pro-branded floor mats and leather-trimmed seats. Besides the TRD badging, the pickup's exterior receives a visual boost courtesy of LED DRLs and fog lights and blackened taillights, together with a new air intake that feeds the 278 hp, 3.5-liter V6 during muddy or dusty off-road sessions.
