(TORONTO, ON – October 24, 2016) Take your adventures to new heights with the Tundra TRD Pro – the full-size pickup truck designed for serious off-roading fun. As comfortable running the dunes as it is towing a boat, the Tundra TRD Pro is ready to claw through just about anything.
“Toyota trucks already have a well-earned reputation for taming the toughest terrain and weather on the planet,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice-President, Toyota Canada Inc. “With the Tundra TRD Pro, we add exclusive performance and capability equipment to make an already great truck into an epic truck ready for any adventure.”
Two Tundra TRD Pro models join the existing line-up for 2017, offering Canadians a choice of double cab or the more spacious CrewMax cab configuration. These are built off the 4x4 Tundra SR5 5.7L TRD Off-Road edition, adding capability and style for incredible off-roading experiences.
TRD Pro upgrades include the TRD Remote Reservoir Suspension, TRD dual exhaust, TRD skid plate and 18” black alloy wheels.
Distinctive performance calls for distinctive style, and the Tundra TRD Pro leaves its mark with unique black leather seats with red stitching, TRD Pro bed-side stamping, carpet floor mats and centre cap, and a unique shift knob.
Every Tundra TRD Pro model is decked out with a premium 7” Display Audio system with integrated XM Satellite Radio to ensure epic experiences are accompanied by an epic soundtrack, while the built-in navigation system ensures that no matter where adventure takes you, you can always get back again.
The Toyota Tundra TRD Off-Road model that is the foundation of the Pro Series trucks is already incredibly well-equipped, with Bilstein shock absorbers, fuel tank protector plates, clearance and backup sensors, heated front seats including a power-adjustable driver’s seat, an anti-theft system and more. This is on top of the SR5’s already impressive features and specifications including a 381 horsepower 5.7L V8 coupled with a six-speed super ECT transmission with Sequential Shift Mode, Active Traction Control, an auto limited slip rear differential and one-touch 4WD to seamlessly switch into and out of 4WD mode.
Whether you’re loading up the 6.5-foot cargo bed in the double cab or 5.5-foot cargo bed in the CrewMax, the removable locking, easy ‘lower and lift’ tailgate makes prepping your gear for adventure simple, while a factory-installed trailer brake controller and towing package (including heavy-duty hitch receiver, 4+7 pin connectors, supplemental transmission cooler and transmission fluid temperature gauge) means every Tundra TRD Pro pick-up is ready to haul all the gear that makes life fun. The Tundra TRD Pro double cab model has a 585kg (1,300 lb) payload and 4,490 kg (9,899 lb) towing capacity, while the Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax model can haul 545kg (1,205 lb) payload and 4,445 kg (9,800 lb) on the tow hitch.
As with all Tundra models, the TRD Pro trucks are generously equipped with standard comfort, convenience and safety features that raise the bar in the full-size pick-up truck segment. These include, air conditioning, a backup camera, a Direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System and more. And for 2017, the Tundra TRD Pro also receives standard Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
