Toyota Teases 3 Special Editions For Chicago
The Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runners can be seen in the teaser photoby Kirby Garlitos, on
Toyota is gearing up for a busy weekend at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show that includes debuting a new lineup of off-road vehicles. The Japanese automaker released a teaser photo of its Chicago attendees, and we can clearly see that the three models are the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner. It’s hard to make out the specifics because of the distance of the vehicles in the photo, but it is believed that all three models will come to Chicago sporting new off-road packages.
It’s hard to make out what the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner are sporting, but if they are carrying new off-road packages, expect it to be an updated version of Toyota’s current TRD Pro package. Each model is eligible to get the package so that’s another sign that they’re all going to be sporting some new version of the package when they all show up in Chicago.
For those who need a refresher, the current TRD Pro Series package offers a series of upgrades to the standard components that are already included in the Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner. Depending on the vehicle, the package includes either a one- or two-inch lift with unique suspension tuning, upgraded off-road tires, special TRD exhaust tips, skid plates, and a handful of cosmetic additions. From the looks of it, all three models are also wearing different grilles compared to their standard counterparts. That’s another suggestion that there could be more offerings included in the new TRD Pro Series package.
Outside of these new digs for Toyota’s incumbent off-roaders, there’s also growing momentum within the company that another off-road SUV could be in the pipeline. Toyota has been mum on this plan, but rumors have been quick to identify the FT-4X Concept that debuted at the 2017 New York Auto Show as the possible inspiration behind this new SUV. Could it be possible, then, that the recently deceased FJ Cruiser will get a successor after all? We’ll find out soon enough.
