There are many reports that suggest further changes to the popular mid-size truck, suggesting some pretty interesting novelties. However, we are pretty sure that one version definitely won’t receive any important change. Yes, we are talking about the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. After the recent update that has brought some pretty interesting novelties, including a new suspension setup, we are pretty sure that bigger changes won’t come before a complete overhaul, which shouldn’t happen in the next couple of years.
Therefore, we may say that you can count on the same specs for the next-year models. Of course, there is always a chance to see a couple of novelties in terms of new standard features and color options. However, all those important things will remain untouched. Therefore, the launch date should be reserved for a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2020.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will carry on with loads of distinctive features, both in terms of styling and mechanics. In terms of the styling, there are several exclusive details, starting from a black grille, LED foglights, unique 16-inch wheels with off-road tires etc.
Still, things are far more interesting when it comes to mechanics. The recent update has brought new 2.5-inch internal bypass Fox shocks. The whole truck has been lifted for about an inch. Also, there are various other off-road upgrades, starting from TRD tuned suspension, locking differentials, upgraded exhaust system, skid plates and much more. All these features help Tacoma to be one of the most proficient trucks on the market when it comes to off-road performances. All in all, we don’t expect to see any important change for the next year.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Interior Features
This truck also has a lot of interesting things to offer on the inside. There are some unique details, but it is mostly about standard features and this model comes with a quite long list. All models come standard with goodies like dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, leather upholstery, a navigation system, and a seven-speaker JBL audio system. Also, there are safety features like lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, forward automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. Also, recently introduced camera-based systems that provide a complete look of everything that is happening around and underneath the vehicle are also standard features.
Of course, you can always customize your 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro with all kinds of accessories. Many of them are available across the whole range, particularly those bed upgrades. Still, there are also various accessories available in TRD models only. For example, there is a TRD Pro shifter, available for both models with manual and automatic transmission. On the outside, you can get upgrades in terms of graphics, lighting details and much more. Also, there is a couple of interesting details under the hood, such as TRD oil and radiator caps, TRD air filter and similar things.
This is where we could see a couple of novelties for the next year. Still, keep in mind that the current model already received some of them. There is a new Army Green color option, which is offered exclusively for this trim level. Other than the new finish, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro could also come with familiar color options, such as Super White, Midnight Black Metallic, Voodoo Blue etc. When it comes to the interior color schemes, all TRD Pro Models come with Black cabins.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Engines
Things under the hood will remain the same. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is about to carry on with a well-known 3.5-liter V6 engine, which is good for about 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. A great thing about this version is that both automatic and manual transmission options are available. The engine delivers plenty of power and provides a pretty good overall riding experience. Still, we have to say that the fuel economy isn’t the strongest point of this engine. You can count on about 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. These are below-average ratings for the class.
2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Release Date and Price
Considering that we probably won’t see any particular change in the next year, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro should hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the next year. When it comes to the price, we presume that there won’t be bigger changes. So, it should start at around 44.000 dollars. Some of the potential rivals are Chevy Colorado ZR2, Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and the upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor.
