The 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro offers next-generation TRD Pro off-road capability. Tacoma TRD Proís vital stats are impressive: 36.4 degree approach angle, 24.7 degree departure angle, and 26.6 degree break-over angle. The midsize truckís off-road prowess is due in large part to an increased suspension lift (1.5 inches front, 0.5 inch rear). Off-road attributes also include new forged aluminum upper control arms and new wheels mated to Goodyear Territory all-terrain tires. Electric lime metallic is a new, exclusive TRD Pro exterior color choice.

The week-long tested Tacoma TRD Pro was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with variable valve timing-intelligent exhaust and Atkinson cycle combustion. Engine provides 278 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 265 torque at 4600 rpm and mates to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Drivers can see obstacles on off-road trails via the cabinís multi-terrain monitor. A button-push provides a driver with front, rear, and side views on the 8-inch touchscreen. The tested Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro 4x4 double cab with V6 and 6-speed automatic transmission collects estimated per gallon fuel economy of 18 city/22 highway and carries a base MSRP of $48,640.
