Tacoma TRD Sport

The virtuosos at the Toyota TRD shop build some amazing vehicles, whether it’s the TRD Pro off-road trucks or the 4Runners that can do amazing things in the dirt.

The Tacoma TRD Sport actually has suspension that’s worse for off-roading but better for street driving than the regular SR5 Tacoma. The TRD Sport is basically an appearance package with a slightly different suspension that Toyota says is “sport-tuned,” meaning it’s a bit stiffer for street use.
