The 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is powered by the same 4.0L V6 as any other six cylinder Tacoma. This particular pre-production truck came with a 5-speed automatic. We now know that a 6-speed manual will also be available for $35,525.
TFLtruck has taken this new Tacoma TRD Pro and 4Runner TRD Pro off-road high in the Rocky Mountains and they simply ate up everything we threw at them. However, how does the Tacoma do on the road and at 0-60 mph at little over a mile above sea level? The V6 produces 236 hp @ 5,200 rpm and 266 lb-ft of torque @4,000. However, it has more 4×4 focused equipment to carry around in the TRD Pro guise.
Here is what Toyota added in this off-road package.
- TRD Bilstein shocks with remote reservoirs in the rear, for increased oil capacity and suspension travel
- TRD-tuned (decreased spring rate) front springs with 1.75-inch lift for the front
- TRD Exhaust
- 16-inch black beadlock-style TRD alloy wheels with BFGoodrich LT265/70R16 A/T tires
- Unique front grille with “TOYOTA” badging (pays tribute to early iconic Toyota models)
- Black “TRD PRO” external hard badge
- TRD floor mats
- TRD shift knobs
