Toyota has revealed its 2021 lineup of TRD pro off-road models, debuting a brand new color and some new gear for heading off-road on the 4Runner.
Every year, Toyota rolls out a brand new unique color option for its TRD pro models. We’ve seen Voodoo Blue, Inferno Orange and most recently, Army Green. But for 2021, Toyota is adding Lunar Rock to the TRD Pro’s pallette.
The TRD Pro lineup consists of four different vehicles: the Toyota Tacoma, Tundra, Sequoia and 4Runner. For 2021, the 4Runner TRD Pro recieves the most changes, though brand new Trail models also arrive for most of the lineup. Let’s go through the changes:
The new 2021 4Runner gets standard LED headlamps across the lineup, while the TRD Pro gets standard LED high beams as well. LED fog lights are now standard across the lineup as well, though the TRD Pro retains its RIGID LED fog lights.
The bigger upgrade that has arrived for the 4Runner is a new set of tires. New TRD flow form wheels now come wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler tires. This change also helped Toyota switch up the shock tuning on the 4Runner, with the brand claiming that the changes helped with trail isolation and high-speed performance while maintaining on-road cornering. The 2.5-inch FOX shocks up front feature TRD-tuned coil spings bringing a one-inch lift, while the rear shocks feature remote reservoirs to help with shock fade.
Available starting in fall of 2020, the Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner will offer new Trail editions. These special editions are based on SR5 grade vehicles and can be had with either two- or four-wheel drive, offering some value in the off-road world. Common upgrades across all the Trail models include black badging, black seating with tan accents, all-weather floor mats and a choice of colors: Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black Metallic, and Super White. From there, each vehicle gets different upgrades.
The 2021 Tacoma Trail features 16-inch TRD Off-Road wheels with Goodyear Wranglers with Kevlar protection wrapped around them and the grille from the Tacoma Limited. A 115-volt plug in the bed along with a lockable storage bin also help make this truck more versatile.
Going for the Tundra Trail gets you the Tundra 1794 Edition grille with color-keyed surround and special-edition wheels, though there are no actual off-road upgrades here.
Finally, the 4Runner Trail arrives with dark gray TRD Off-Road wheels, a Yakima LoadWarrior rooftop cargo basket and a custom 40-quart cooler and sliding cargo tray.
