Toyota’s entry into the full-size off-road pickup game this year is the new Tundra TRD Pro, a step up from the run of the mill TRD package.
Most agree TRD has been barely more than a sticker and shocks package for all intents, but TRD Pro brings some real hardware and visual change to the Tundra, not to mention increased off-road capability you can feel.
Suspension gets a healthy 2-inch lift up front for a better stance, special TRD-tuned Bilstein front and rear digressive piston dampers and increased suspension travel front and rear. Softer rate TRD springs give better compliance in the rough as well.
While the 5.7 liter V8 remains unchanged, it does get a stainless steel TRD dual exhaust system which has reduced back-pressure, a deeper sound and the obligatory polished tips for extra bling.
And speaking of bling, though functional there’s also a 1/4-inch thick aluminum slid plate up front and eye-catching black 18-inch TRD alloy wheels with Michelin off-road tires.
Other unique visuals include blacked-out headlights with manual leveling control, TRD graphics here and there, as well as blacked out emblems and trim. I comes only in three colors, Black, Super White, and Inferno which you see here.
Last but not least the interior gets a slew of tricks to remind you why you spent the money including red-accent seat stitching, a TRD shift knob, embroidered logo floor mats, and custom instrument cluster trim.
The 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD-Pro is available in both Double Cab and Crew-Cab models and starts at $41,285. It’s available at your dealers right now.
