The pickup truck segment is ripe for off-roading, thanks to the class’s combination of capability and power. With entries in the off-road pickup class such as the Ford F-150 Raptor and Chevy Colorado ZR2, even the big names in the segment are cashing in on the niche. However, nobody does recreational, all-terrain trucks like Toyota, and the brand brought their full lineup of TRD Pro trucks (that’s “Toyota Racing Development”) to the Chicago Auto Show recently to show off its upcoming 2019 selection.
Three different vehicles in Toyota’s model lineup got the TRD Pro treatment: the Toyota Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner. 2019 TRD Pro models will come with brand-new Fox Racing internal-bypass shock absorbers, which Toyota reps claim pairs the TRD Pro models’ trail-ready performance with a more smooth and enjoyable driving experience. The new models will also get exclusive tires in addition to a unique new feature – a snorkel – which will make fording through bodies of water easier than ever.
Cosmetic touches to the 2019 TRD Pro trucks include TRD badging, unique exhaust systems, and a roof rack on the 4Runner.
Toyota’s new models will be available in showrooms in fall of 2018, so keep an eye out for us here at Hurlbert Toyota. Don’t hesitate to call or contact us for more information.
