Toyota Tacoma keeps V6 power with manual transmission

Andrew Krok  Roadshow

It offers buyers even more trail-bashing robustness right out of the box. Model-specific red coil springs, meanwhile, bear an off-road focus, while the twin-tube shocks have been re-valved and feature new internal rebound springs.

When it comes to rolling stock, the Sequoia TRD Pro rolls on TRD 18- by 8-inch black BBS forged aluminum wheels wearing P275/65 R18 tires, which complement the new trim-exclusive Army Green color that's available in addition to the regular palette. The rear employs 2-inch-diameter Fox piggyback monotube shocks, which rock 47mm pistons (15mm larger than non-TRD) and stronger shock rods that are 3.2mm larger in diameter. Perhaps knowing it would have to up its game, Toyota has introduced a long list of updates for the 2020 Tacoma, including new grille designs for all trims except the TRD Pro. There's also a substantial TRD front skid plate to protect both the suspension pieces and the oil pan from errant boulders and wildlife that might get caught under the gargantuan front end.

Full details on the 2020 Sequoia TRD Pro can be found in the document attached below. Running boards and a roof rack are standard.as well.

Offered in the USA in Magnetic Grey metallic with an Ice Edge roof, the RAV4 TRD Off-Road features dark grey front and rear lower facias, as well as front LED foglamps. TRD all-weather floor mats and a rear cargo protector are also included. The 381 horsepower on tap isn't the strongest in the segment, but it's reasonably torquey, with 401 lb-ft. In fact, all Tacoma trims get the new eight-inch display, complete with better graphics, and for the first time, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa connectivity.

No changes under the bonnet, with the Dynamic Force 2.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine delivering 203 hp and 249 Nm of torque. If you want to bring your toys to inhospitable places, the Sequoia will happily tow 7,100 pounds.

The Sequoia TRD Pro will go on sale later this year, and its price should come in somewhere around the mid-$60,000 range, sitting close to the top of the lineup, which is now represented by the $68,930 Sequoia Platinum.
