See Yourself Off-Roading with a 2019 TRD Pro Series

By Justin Cupler | September 3rd, 2018

 

Born out of Toyota’s racing and off-road heritage, the 2019 TRD Pro vehicles will offer you dynamic looks and capability when the pavement ends, and dependable performance with updated features. For 2019, the Toyota 4Runner, Tacoma, and Tundra will receive all-new Fox shocks, and an array of off-roading equipment and accessories expertly tuned for optimal performance.

The new aluminum-bodied 2.5-inch Fox internal-bypass shocks are specifically tuned for each vehicle to deliver dependable performance and impressive damping in many conditions. Toyota paired the shocks with specially tuned TRD springs that give the vehicle a lift to tackle rough rock crawls and a comfortable ride.

Each model has its own rear 2.5-inch Fox shocks with an external reservoir with additional oil to maintain optimal damping performance during extreme use. On the Tundra and Tacoma, you’ll have brawny rear leaf springs to aid performance over rough terrain, while the 4Runner has rear coil springs for a smoother ride.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

Whether you’re going through the carpool lane or hitting the back trails, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is ready to handle it. It features enhanced 2.5-inch Fox front shocks with 46 mm pistons and eight bypass zones, and a 1-inch front lift. The rear also gets 2.5-inch shocks with 11 bypass zones and 2-inch piggyback reservoirs to maintain them.

Most notable of the Tacoma upgrades is the all-new TRD Desert air intake. No matter how dirty the terrain gets, this intake will keep the engine free of grit. The TRD Desert Air Intake doesn’t use the traditional low mounting area; instead, it is at the base of the windshield where the air is typically cleaner.

You’ll also get a plethora of TRD-exclusive equipment including an updated front skid plate with TRD red lettering and a cat-back TRD exhaust with a black-chrome tip.

The branding and badging continues inside the cabin with floor mats, headrests, and door sills emblazoned with red “TRD” lettering. Plus, the leather seats provide durability and comfort wherever the road takes you.

2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

You’ll get the same new Fox 2.5-inch front shocks with 46 mm pistons on the 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro but with a 2-inch lift in the front. The front has 11 bypass zones, and the rear has 12 bypass zones with 2.5-inch piggyback reservoirs for improved damping. All this increases front wheel travel by over 1.5 inches and rear wheel travel by over 2 inches.

The Tundra also distinguishes itself with new LED fog lights for improved visibility on and off the highway. The front end looks beefier and more assertive with the new “TOYOTA” grille, new hood scoop and LED headlights. On the rear, you’ll find “TRD Pro” stamping on the bed’s rear quarter panels.

You’ll also find the bold badging inside with red “TRD” lettering on the leather seats and red accent stitching on the seats, steering wheel, and dash. For a little more light in the cabin, you can opt for the Tundra TRD Pro’s available moonroof.

Don’t be surprised when you hear a little growl on the highway thanks to the TRD Pro dual exhaust fitted with black-chrome exhaust tips. A TRD Pro 1/4-inch skid plate with signature red “Toyota” lettering sits beneath the front end for added protection.

2019 4Runner TRD Pro

This legendary off-road SUV gets Fox shocks paired with the TRD-tuned front springs for a 1-inch lift and an additional inch of wheel travel. In the front, the 2.5-inch shocks use 46 mm pistons with seven bypass zones. The rear has 11 bypass zones and 2-inch piggyback reservoirs. And to keep the rear inverted design safe on the trails, Toyota added a unique TRD roost shield for protection.

The 4Runner has a unique roof rack on top to give you a place to store your dirty gear outside your vehicle and keep the interior looking good for longer. Just like the other TRD models, this SUV gets a 1/4-inch-thick front skid plate that sports red “TRD” lettering and 17-inch matte-black TRD alloy wheels. These wheels come with an offset change to provide it with nearly a 1-inch wider front and rear tracks that give you added stability when you’re climbing rocks.

In the cabin, you’ll sit on red-stitched SofTex seats with red “TRD” logos on the front headrests, and badging on the floor mats and shift knob. Listen to your favorite songs with the Entune Premium JBL Audio with integrated navigation.
