All the things that make a regular Toyota Tacoma a TRD Pro
Taking a close look at all the "TRD Pro" bits of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.
The TRD Pro trim is probably one of the best trim levels you can get on a vehicle. Many "performance" trim levels are basically appearance packages, where the TRD Pro does make your Toyota look good, while also adding performance value. I am going to take you through all of the upgrades the TRD Pro trim adds to the 2020 Toyota Tacoma.
TRD-tuned FOX shocks
Perhaps the most bang for your buck with the TRD Pro trim on not only the Tacoma, but the 4Runner, Tundra, and Sequoia is the 2.5 internal bypass shocks. The FOX shocks are not simply an off the shelf set of shocks. TRD did their financing with help from FOX to create the unique ride that can be found in each TRD Pro offering.
Rigid Industries LED fog lights
I just mentioned how the TRD Pro trim adds performance to Toyotas where others lack, well in the world of off roading lights are more important than horsepower. At premerie off road events like the Baja 1000 or King of the Hammers a significant population of race trucks run lights made by Rigid Industries. The 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro comes packed with a set of Rigid Industries LED fog lights in both front corners.
TRD skid plate
The 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro features a unique TRD skid plate that protects your vital engine components from impact. Not only is it completely functional to protect say your oil pan from hitting a rock, but it also looks pretty good with its big TRD branding.
The 3.6 liter V6 from much of the 2020 Tacoma line comes equipped under the hood in the TRD Pro version, but don't you want to hear it sing? That is where the TRD exhaust comes in.
I am a big fan of black wheels and the 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro comes equipped with a matte black set of 16 inch TRD alloy wheels. Keeping the wheel size low lets you increase the aggressive level of rubber you wrap around it.
Retro TOYOTA front grill
Well we could only go on about the performance benefits for so long before we got to looks. One of the most unique looks of the TRD Pro level Tacoma is the TOYOTA front grill in lieu of the normal Toyota badge you get on non-TRD Pro Tacomas.
TRD Pro badging
It should go without saying, but some people really love badges. The Tacoma TRD Pro comes with TRD Pro branded in multiple places on the exterior. You get a big badge on both the passenger and driver doors, a matte black badge on the trunk bed, and facing the front grill even the left headlight says "TRD" while the right one says "Pro".
TRD interior branding
The exterior was not the only thing to get TRD Pro written places. The interior features TRD Pro on the headrests, on the floor mats, and a TRD branded gear shifter.
