Besides the Ford’s Ram’s and Chevrolet’s pickup trucks, Toyota is also starting to dominate this segment. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is one of the best high-performance pickups you can find on the market. This model is becoming more and more popular and the 2020 model will be the best one yet. Even the base model is great and special TRD Pro variant is simply amazing. It comes with tuned suspension, new intakes, more off-roading gear, and the performance is astonishing.
The 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro is available for years now. Unfortunately, the upcoming model will arrive with minor updates. On the other hand, the pickup looks and acts great so significant upgrades are not really needed at the moment. This model is a mid-size pickup truck and for that reason, it will compete against Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Ford Ranger Raptor.
2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Is Strong And Good Looking
The standard Tacoma model is one of the best-looking pickup trucks on the markets. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will look even better. The exterior looks attractive and more modern. It adds plenty of the off-roading gear.
That includes larger anti-roll bars, tuned suspension, more skid plates, and special air intake. Yes, it’s a snorkel actually, but Toyota prefers to call it TRD Desert Air Intake. Fair enough. Whatsoever, this system will look to clean air through the filter which should provide amazing airflow. Plenty of TRD badging is visible at first glance and TRD Pro variant will add more chrome details. 16-inch alloy wheels are standard, along with the LED headlights and fog lights.
2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Interior Appearance
From the inside, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will look great. Premium upholstery includes the black leather seats with the red contrast stitching. The comfort is great as the seats are very supportive. TRD logos are all over the cabin, even on the shift knob and floor mats.
The Entune system is back in the game, along with the premium JBL audio system. Interestingly, Japanese carmaker still refuses to offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. However, Qi wireless charging is available. Cabin room is ample for the mid-size pickup truck.
