The all-new 2019 Toyota TRD Pro lineup is here and is more capable than ever.
The 2019 Toyota Tundra, 4Runner and Tacoma TRD Pro models are the brand’s most hardcore off-road offerings straight from the factory, and for this year each one of gets upgrades.
First, the suspension, and this change arrives for all three models. The 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro was released with a set of Fox 2.5-inch Internal Bypass Shocks which at the time were specific to the midsize truck, but for 2019 all three models will use these shocks. The leaf springs in the rear of the Tundra and Tacoma have been tuned as well by TRD, along with the coilovers in the 4Runner, to deliver more travel and a better ride off road.
New TRD dust boots are used to keep dust and dirt out of the shocks while the 4Runner uses a unique roost shield to protect the inverted rear shock.
