2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Performance Specs
What better place to test the power and performance of the extreme 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro than the Arctic Circle? You will be hard pressed to find more extreme terrain and a more brutal climate in North America than what the all-new Tacoma TRD Pro faced in the Arctic Challenge. Take a closer look at the explosive 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro performance specs, as Toyota drivers Andy Bell and Ryan Millen go on a trek through the Arctic Circle in Alaska with video footage to illustrate it.
What is the Toyota Tacoma Arctic Challenge?
To set the stage for the all-new 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro performance, we have created an overview of the Arctic Challenge. Throughout this challenge, the Toyota Racing Development drivers travel 415 miles along the Dalton Highway in Alaska in the new Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. Along the way, the highway is 25% paved and 75% gravel with a layer of ice and snow to add to the suspense. Concluding in Deadhorse, AK, the northernmost point in North America, the journey entails Alaskan blizzards, blinding snow, icy roads, four-foot snow drifts and sub-zero temperatures.
Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Power and Off-Road Features
Behind the wheel of a stock 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, you will experience countless thrills with a power-packed engine and innovative off-road features. Equipped with the all-new 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle V-6, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro manufactures 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Paired with your choice between a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, you can tailor that performance to your driving style.
If you were to embark on an Arctic Challenge today, traction would be a priority and the Tacoma TRD Pro delivers on all counts. A dynamic 4WDemand part-time four-wheel drive system employs electronically-controlled differentials to divert torque as necessary and improve traction. Traction is made even more impressive in arctic conditions with the application of 16-inch wheels and Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Kevlar-reinforced tires with an aggressive tread.
Outfitted with an arsenal of off-road features, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is capable of handling even the most extreme terrain on the trail. TRD-tuned FOX Internal Bypass shocks in conjunction with a TRD-tuned suspension will make rough terrain feel like you are riding on Cloud 9 with exceptional wheel articulation. If you face an Arctic Challenge, you will need the capability to handle varying degrees of terrain and a Toyota Multi-terrain Select System and Crawl Control feature will allow you to navigate tough terrain with ease.
Extreme vehicles need to be tested by extreme terrain and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Arctic Challenge is as tough as they come. With potent 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro performance specs and off-road features, the all-new Tacoma TRD Pro will dominate whatever terrain Mother Nature can throw at it. Expected to arrive in the Gale Toyota inventory late in 2016, the Tacoma TRD Pro promises to be an exceptional pickup truck. If you can’t wait that long, the current 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road trim will deliver dynamic off-road performance with similar features.
