Toyota Kicks Up Some Dust with the All-New TRD Pro Series of Off-Road Vehicles

PR Newswire

CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014

CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Get ready to go where even roads fear to
tread with the adrenaline-pumping TRD Pro Series from Toyota.  Already
favorites among serious off-roaders, the 2015 Toyota Tundra, Tacoma and
4Runner will get even more capable with these new, aggressive off-road
packages designed by the experts at Toyota Racing Development (TRD). 

Rising from the Desert
The TRD Pro Series arises from Toyota's storied off-road racing heritage, with
numerous victories in the grueling Baja 500 and 1000 endurance races.  Born
from this experience in the desert, Toyota's terrain-conquering vehicles will
help serious off-roaders go places they never dreamed possible.

Serious Specs for Serious Off-Roaders
The new factory-installed TRD Pro Series is aimed squarely at extreme
off-roading enthusiasts who push their trucks and SUVs to the limit.  

Available on 4X4 models of Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner, all TRD Pro Series
vehicles will be equipped with:

  o TRD Bilstein shocks with remote reservoirs
  o TRD-tuned front springs
  o TRD front skid plate
  o Unique front grille with "TOYOTA" badging (pays tribute to early iconic
    Toyota models)
  o TRD floor mats
  o TRD shift knobs
  o Black wheels

A hot new color, Inferno, is joined by Black and Super White, cool classics
for off-road rigs.

Tundra Like No Other
In addition to the shared features, the Tundra TRD Pro will be equipped
exclusively with:

  o TRD-tuned springs with 2" lift for the front of the vehicle
  o Decreased spring rate to improve ride quality over harsh terrain
  o All-black 18-inch alloy wheels with Michelin ORP tires
  o TRD dual exhaust system
  o TRD PRO quarter panel bed stamping
  o Unique interior seat color with red stitching
  o Unique instrument panel ornament insert

Taco Supreme
Building on the best-selling compact pickup in the industry, Tacoma TRD Pro
beefs up and adds a little hot sauce with:

  o TRD-tuned springs with 2" lift for the front
  o Decreased spring rate
  o 16-inch black beadlock-style wheels
  o BFGoodrich^® All-Terrain LT265/75R16 tires
  o TRD Exhaust
  o Black TRD PRO badge

Rock Star 4Runner
Adding to its rock-crawling prowess, 4Runner TRD PRO will be exclusively
equipped with:

  o 1.5" lift for the front of the vehicle
  o 1" of additional wheel travel
  o All-new 17-inch TRD all-black alloy wheels
  o Black TRD Pro badges
  o Black front and rear lower bumper accents

Street Cred On and Off-Road
The TRD Pro Series is the most-advanced yet in a long line of TRD packages for
Toyota trucks that dates back to 1998 when the first Off-Road package was
introduced for Tacoma.  

TRD has been an in-house engine and chassis developer for successful Toyota
racing activities around the world for nearly four decades.  It also develops
motorsport-derived accessories for Toyota, Lexus and Scion street cars and
trucks.  TRD's U.S. operations were first established in 1979 and are
headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., with an additional facility in Salisbury,
N.C.      

The TRD Pro Series will start getting down and dirty in the fall of 2014.
