The 2020 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro Is an Off-Road Behemoth

The TRD Off Road is not the full-on TRD Pro we wanted but we're here for it either way

The TRD Off Road is not the full-on TRD Pro we wanted but we're here for it either way

The 2020 Tacoma is making its debut at the Chicago Auto Show with a new TRD Pro version of the Sequoia.

SR5 and higher trim levels now feature a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support in place of last year's non-height-adjustable manual seat. However, this model hasn't just been created to go off the beaten path; The TRD Pro Sequoia is more technologically advanced than other models featuring updated equipment with more driver-assist features and complete with Android Auto, Apple Carplay, and Amazon Alexa. Both the Tundra and Sequoia TRD Pro feature premium JBL audio, the 4Runner adds two extra USB ports in the rear seat area, and the Tundra and 4Runner get keyless entry and ignition for 2020. You get different 16-inch wheels and black-insert taillights, along with a new Army Green color option to round out the exterior.

So for 2019, the Tacoma's tough looks has been amplified a bit for the new year. TRD and Limited trims can also be had with LED headlights that sport a new design.

They also deployed Chinese interpreters to warn tourists that bringing in pork products into Japan is prohibited in principle. Japanese authorities are battling to contain swine flu after the virus was detected at multiple sites in central Japan.

Underhood, the Tacoma retains a standard 2.7-liter inline-4 rated at 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, although most trucks are built with a 3.5-liter V-6 that puts out 278 hp and 265 lb-ft. The mill is linked to an eight-speed Direct Shift eight-speed automatic transmission and Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) with Rear Driveline Disconnect. Not only will this Sequoia be able to power through almost any terrain, it can also tow up to 7,000 lbs. while carrying up to seven-people who can sit pretty with ample legroom. The full-size SUV features a redesigned suspension system with Fox bypass shocks that combined good ride characteristics with a resistance to bottoming out, a front underbody skid plate and the TRD Pro line's signature TOYOTA-emblazoned grille among other cosmetic changes.

When it comes to hauling the family around, there are plenty of big SUVs out there to choose from.

The Toyota Tacoma got a significant revision in 2015, but since it faced precious little competition in its segment at that time, the makeover was a mild one. Pricing will be announced closer to the vehicle's market launch.
