Off-Roading Features and Capabilities

Time to start the adventure! Let’s take a look at the off-roading capabilities of both the Tacoma TRD Off-Road and the TRD Pro.

The biggest change between the two is the TRD Pro stepped up the suspension game. The Off-Road gives you the TRD-tuned off-road suspension with Bilstein shocks, while the Pro gives you the TRD-tuned off-road suspension with 2.5-inch FOX Internal Bypass coil-overs and rear remote reservoir shocks.

What does that change in suspension mean for capability? The TRD Pro is going to have more versatility and capability when it comes to your off-road performance. The Approach/Departure/Breakover in degrees for the Off-Road is 32.5/23.9/25 while the TRD Pro gives you 35/23.9/36. Basically, the TRD Pro gives you improved off-road abilities, and at the same time, doesn’t sacrifice any of the normal driving performance and capabilities.

Because of the changes to the suspension, the TRD Pro has slightly less towing capacity than the TRD Off-Road. The Off-Road can tow up to 6,700 pounds and the Pro can tow up to 6,400 pounds. Both vehicles have the same 3.5-liter V6 engine, so the biggest difference in capability is the change in suspension.

Exterior Design

Each Toyota model has its own personality as evident by the different design elements on each model. Which style fits best with your style?

The Toyota TRD Off-Road shows its personality with a gray grille that has a smoked finish and chrome surround. It has more of a classic look with chrome accents like the chrome rear bumper. This vehicle also features LED Daytime Running Lights and Integrated Fog Lights.

The TRD Pro has a heritage-inspired Toyota front grille in black to give it a more edgy look. It also stands out with its blacked-out hood scoop, black overfenders and unique badging. Both the projector-beam headlights and the taillights have black bezels to add even more personality.

Interior Features

Next, let’s take a look at the inside of both of these trucks. For comfort, both vehicles have you covered, but the TRD Pro is a little bit more high-end. The Off-Road gives you fabric-trimmed seats, and the Pro gives you Black TRD Pro leather-trimmed heated front seats for added comfort.

Both vehicles have convenient technology like a Smart Key System on the driver door and a Push Button Start. Both the Pro and the Off-Road give you the Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite as well as a touchscreen display with smartphone connectivity. Also, the leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls can be found in both trucks.

Which is Best for You?

Now it’s decision time. Both the Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road and the TRD Pro are great options, but the one you choose has to best fit with your lifestyle.

If you are looking for a capable vehicle with a lower price tag, then you should consider the TRD Off Road, but if you are looking for the complete off-road package with some serious exterior style, the TRD Pro might be the vehicle for you. [external_footer]
