The Tacoma is a truck that hardly needs any introduction. It’s become a cult classic for people who want a smaller pick-up with great reliability and some solid 4×4 capability, too. Well, the Tacoma has now been given a facelift for hardcore offroad aficionados for 2017. Enter the Tacoma TRD Pro edition of this truck. But this isn’t just fancy badging and a new front grille (which looks great), everything from the suspension to the skid plates to the fog lamps have been reworked to give you a truck that can handle some of the more punishing 4×4 trails around the world right out of the box. Take a look at our video above for our full review. Then take a look at our final report card grade below.
