Chicago Auto Show: Toyota Rolls Out 2019 TRD Pro Off-Road Lineup And Tacoma TRD Pro Gets A Snorkel
Toyota unveiled their 2019 TRD Pro off-road lineup at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show this past weekend. The roster included the 2019 versions of Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, and Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro trucks. The new models get a slightly updated look, some enhanced capabilities, and some additional features. Most notably, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro gets a snorkel so you can drive on the road, desert, or even in water.
The snorkel raises the engine’s air-intake point on the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Toyota and gets attached to the truck after shipping to prevent damage during transit. However, Toyota did not indicate how deep into the water the Taco can swim, but the pipe can also help when in sandy desert conditions. The truck also offers the all-new TRD Desert Air Intake as an optional off-road feature. Toyota moved the intake from the fender well to the windshield to reduce dust the vehicle would suck up and maximize performance. The Tacoma TRD Pro has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that provides 278-horsepower.
