The Japanese automaker recently filed an application to trademark “Toyota FT-4X” for automobiles and structural parts thereof, suggesting that the company is working on a new off-road, four-wheel-drive model. The “FT” in the trademark means Future Toyota and has been used previously with the FT-86 Concept that eventually became the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86, as well as the FT-1 Concept that is believed to preview the Supra’s successor.
With the introduction of the all-new Tacoma in 2016, Toyota is following up with the new truck by offering a new 2017 TRD Pro model next month. Today, Toyota announced the starting price of the TRD Pro, a truck based on the ninth-generation Tacoma launched last year.
Visalia, Calif. – Hellwig Products, an industry leading manufacturer of sway bars and towing and hauling suspension products, has released its upgraded front and rear sway bars for the 2016 Toyota Hilux 4wd pickup.

Chances are, if you’ve seen a Toyota truck driving around town or on the highway, you’ve at some point seen the TRD sticker on the rear quarter panel of the truck bed.

Do you yearn to feel your truck lunge forward under moderate throttle, the hood heaving up before you? Do you ache for that gentle linear pre-runner sway into every corner? Does your current rig sport a sticker with Calvin maliciously relieving himself on a Blue Oval? If so, Dealer Services International’s Tundra Pro Runner may be the truck for you.
The Raptor is said to have no real peers. And while that is strictly true, this Toyota makes a compelling argument to look hither. But it’s not the truck’s canyon-absorbing wheel travel, miraculous hydraulic bump stops, or bad-ass 18-inch black aluminum wheels in 35-inch rubber that make this Tundra exceptional. What makes this a viable Raptor alternative is that you can buy one right off a Toyota showroom floor today. No lapse in warranty coverage, no payload penalty, and no need to max out your credit card for the modifications.

BJ Baldwin has never made it a secret that one of his idols is the “Ironman” himself, Ivan Stewart.

Baldwin will be formally unveiled at the AMA Supercross finale in Las Vegas this Saturday as the new “Ironman” for Toyota, which has just signed Baldwin to a multi-year sponsorship. Baldwin will field a Tundra TRD Pro Trophy Truck this year in both SCORE International and Best in the Desert races.
