It also offers off road suspension, TRD-tuned Fox internal bypass shocks, and 18 inches Michelin tires, which comes on alloy wheels specifically made for off roading. The unique TRD coil springs offer an additional inch of suspension lift up front. The special progressive-rate leaf springs out back aid articulation and bump absorption.

It dominates the segment of midsize trucks. It has badges on the front doors and tailgate, blacked-out head and taillight bezels, and special LED fog lights. These LED fog lights have wide-angle beam pattern, which endures harsh environment. It also comes with an electronic-locking rear differential and a limited-slip center drive system transfer case.

The extended access cab has small rear-hinged rear doors, while the double cab has a large crew cab. The truck doors are built with high-strength steel. It also has a smart key with push button start. The smart key can automatically unlock the doors by touching the driver side door handle.

The truck's "cargo management" features horsepower, standard locking tailgate and the available locking hard tri fold tonneau cover, which adds extra security so the cargo is fully protected. It also has a heavy-duty 2.5-inch Fox internal bypass damper. It has a standard towing package and a 130 amp alternator. The coolers are best for the engine oil, power steering, and automatic transmission.

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD is constructed from 304 stainless steel, which precise CNC mandrel bends help maximize efficiency. The tough truck has a unique TRD Pro skid plate which is designed from 1/4-inch thick aluminum that serves as a piece of armor from crucial mechanical components.
