The 2021 Toyota TRD Pro lineup has been unveiled that will see a new Lunar Rock color replace the Army Green we saw last year.
Toyota has been making TRD Pro models since 2014 and they come loaded with accessories and features born from the brand’s racing and off-road heritage.
Beyond the new paint job, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro also sees some improved lighting, as well as new shocks and wheels.
4Runner Lighting Improvement
The 2021 Toyota 4Runner (all grades) now benefits from LED headlamps as standard equipment, while the TRD Pro also receives LED high beams. As well, all 4Runner grades will be equipped with LED fog lights, while the 4Runner TRD Pro will maintain the RIGID LED log lamps from 2020.
New Shocks & Wheels
The 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro also comes dressed in new black TRD allow flow form wheels wrapped in the proven Nitto Terra Grappler tires. According to Toyota, these new wheels are stronger and more rigid and feature a more aggressive spoke design and deeper dish.
Toyota notes that the switch to the flow form wheels allows for a number of other benefits, including shock absorber tuning. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro features retuned 2.5-inch Fox Internal Bypass Shocks, which allows for an improvement in “trail driving isolation and high-speed performance without compromising on-road comfort and steering response.”
Paired with the new front Fox sohcks are TRD-tuned coil springs, which benefit from an inch of front lift. In the rear, the shocks feature piggyback-style remote reservoirs so drivers can tune the shocks for the type of performance individual drivers require.
Available starting in the fall of 2020, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner Trail Editions are designed for drivers who like to experience the great outdoors and all three offer the choice of 2WD or 4WD and the trio is based on the SR5 grade.
According to Toyota, the Tacoma Trail is built on the SR5 Double Cab, and the Tundra Trail is based on the SR5 Crew Max with SR5 Upgrade Package (larger fuel tank, front bucket seats with driver’s power lumbar support, front center console, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, three front cupholders, and an anti-theft system with alarm and engine immobilizer).
You can pick up a Trail Edition in Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black Metallic, or Super White. All models will come standard with all-weather floor liners, black exterior badging, black seating, and a tan accent stitch. Individual Trail Edition models offer unique upgrades:
- The 2021 Tacoma Trail features a set of Dark Gray 16-inch TRD Off-Road wheels with Kevlar All-Terrain tires, and the grille from the Tacoma Limited adds a custom touch. A 115-volt power outlet in the bed adds versatility, and lockable bed storage includes insulation on the driver side to double as a cooler.
- The Tundra Trail wears the bold chrome grille from the top-of-line Tundra 1794 Edition with color-keyed surround, plus special-edition wheels. As on the Tacoma Trail, lockable bed storage includes insulation on the driver side to work as a cooler.
- The 4Runner Trail comes ready to carry campers into the woods with dark gray TRD OffRoad wheels, and a Yakima LoadWarrior rooftop cargo basket for added utility and gearhauling capability. Inside, 4Runner boasts a custom 40-quart cooler and sliding cargo tray.
