Can you teach an old pick-up a new trick…or in other words, can the 2011 Toyota Tacoma TX Pro TRD pick-up truck take on the Colorado Rockies?
The Toyota Tacoma has been around a long time.
Toyota has not really changed the pick-up in any significant way for over a dozen years.
Sure Toyota has tweaked the looks and the two engine choices back in 2011, but at the core the Tacoma has not changed. Many people would say why mess with success.
For 2011, Tacoma received a TX Pro and TRD (Toyota Racing development) package. When you look under the covers, it has such goodies as: off-road tuned suspension, 18 inch wheels and specific off-road worthy BF Goodrich tires, as well as a locking rear differential.
So do all of these extra rugged components make the Tacoma the Jeep of the pickup world? Take a look at this “Throwback Thursday” TFL video to find out.
