Toyota’s Tacoma TRD Pro 4x4 has the versatility of being ruggedly dependable, yet still, manages to look polished and ready for business. These are qualities that are on the top of what to look for if you're into regular or random adventure, and executive meeting or office parties afterward. More than that, this Toyota pickup is the reincarnation of your favorite childhood truck which can dive into muddy holes and emerge looking glorious.

Being America’s best-selling mid-size pickup for a very long time, these vehicles nearly double the sales of its nearest competitor. First, on sale for the 2016 model year, the third-generation Tacoma is built with a stronger frame. Infused with more high-strength steel, it has an upgraded powertrain, lending a much more aggressive appearance.

At the top of Toyota Tacoma's model range is the TRD Pro 4x4, which boasts of rugged off-road equipments. These come in handy for those venturing far off paved surfaces. Based on the Tacoma TRD Off-Road 4x4 Double Cab short-bed model, its standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6, delivering a class-competitive 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, the Forbes reported.

The engine can be had with either a six-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox. It also comes powered with engine features that have some high-tech goodies to promote good fuel economy. There is also a standard tow package on the TRD Pro, which allows owners to tow up to 6,800 pounds, the Top Speed reported.

In conclusion, buyers of Toyota’s Tacoma TRD Pro 4x4 are offered benefits in two main ways. First, there are inherent improvements that came with the new Tacoma, such as its steel mainframes and engine power. Second, there are some major upgrades in the off-road department that make road trips on any terrain a fun ride.
