Toyota unveils new off-road trucks at the Chicago Auto Show

TRD Pro lineup

The TRD Pro series goes on sale in the fall with a choice of three colors for each vehicle: super white, midnight black metallic or voodoo blue, the latter exclusive to TRD Pro.

Regardless of which TRD Pro model you choose, all 2019 models are equipped with new Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks to supplement the trucks' raised suspensions and extra wheel articulation.

Toyota's TRD Pro line of trucks has been around for a while now, and for 2019, they're getting some welcome upgrades.

As far as the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is concerned, it gets - besides the 2.5-inch Fox shocks front and rear - a new skid plate and chrome tip for the cat-back exhaust.

The snorkel is not meant to allow the Tacoma TRD Pro to travel under water, but as anyone with an internet connection knows, that is what makes the best videos. They are paired with TRD-tuned springs that provide an additional 1 inch of front lift.

The option for SUV buyers is the 4Runner TRD Pro, which for 2019 adds a new roof rack, a front skid plate with red "TRD" lettering, and 17-inch alloys finished in matte black and wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler P265/70R17 A/T tires.

However, the highlight for 2019 is a snorkel called the TRD Desert Air Intake, helping the 3.5-liter keep running under more hard conditions. This truck has Rigid Industries fog lights, LED headlights, and LED accent lights. Each wheel saves around 3.35 pounds of unsprung mass and comes wrapped in Michelin P275/65R18 all-terrain rubber. And like the Tacoma TRD Pro, the 4Runner also gets a standard JBL sound system. It can be fitted with the Premium JBL Audio system and gets several TRD touches on the inside. The suite includes vehicle stability control, traction control, ABS, EBD and brake assist.

Even though a pure off-road vehicle like the FJ Cruiser is out of its lineup, Toyota is making a play for those who love digging into the dirt with a trio of trucks.
