2014 Chicago: Toyota reveals TRD Pro lineup for their 4x4s w/ video

Following some teasers, Toyota finally revealed their all-new TRD Pro line for their 4×4 SUVs and trucks, which take existing models and give them some factory performance upgrades straight from Toyota’s Racing Development division.

Available for only the four-wheel drive models of the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner, the TRD Pro packages add to the already high capabilities of Toyota’s trucks. For example, the Tundra TRD Pro receives a nice two-inch lift, a dual exhaust system, 18-inch black alloys, and special Michelin ORP tires.

The same treatment is also given to the Tacoma TRD Pro while the 4Runner TRD Pro receives a 1.5-inch lift, black bumper accents, and 17-inch black alloys. All models benefit from unique seat trimmings and red contrast stitching, as well as an upgraded instrument cluster.
