Off-Road Capability of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro
The Toyota Tacoma is one of America’s favorite trucks, which makes sense. The truck is reliable, efficient, and rugged. And with the TRD packages, the Tacoma is enhanced even further with things like the upgraded and professionally tuned suspension. Given the off-road centric vocabulary and marketing surrounding the Tacoma TRD series, you may be wondering just how fit for off-roading the trucks really are. Let’s take a look.
Here’s the 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD ground clearance.
Tacoma TRD Ground Clearance
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro has 9.4 inches of ground clearance. Coupled with its 35.0-degree approach angle, and you’ve got a truck that outperforms other light duty trucks like the Chevy Colorado ZR2 (which sits at 8.9 inches) and the Ford Ranger (which sits at 8.4 inches). Off-roading enthusiasts know that every little bit counts. And while you take the Tacoma off-road, it also performs well on blacktop, unlike many honest-to-goodness off-roaders.
Other TRD Pro Features
With features like Trail Control, Crawl Control, and a Multi-Terrain Monitor, the 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro makes off-roading a cinch, all from the comfort of the cabin. But don’t think that it’s just some fancy electronic tech that makes the TRD Pro so capable. It’s equipped with TRD-tuned FOX 2.5 Internal Bypass shocks, a locking rear differential, a cat-back exhaust, and an upgraded skid plate, among other things. It also has a 3.5L V6 that puts out 278 horsepower and 265 ft-lbs of torque. That engine is either paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed shiftable automatic.
