Toyota Tacoma Gets New Trail Edition And TRD Pro Versions For 2022

The 2022 Toyota Tacoma answers the call of the wild with trims designed for adventure-seekers

  • Both feature a required suspension lift.

  • New bronze accents added including wheels and lettering for the Trail.

  • The TRD Pro gets upgraded suspension components.

The Toyota Tacoma is undoubtedly one of the most respected trucks of all time. Its legend is based on durability, reliability, and, best of all, its seemingly limitless capabilities. For 2022, Toyota has dialed these capabilities to 11 with a pair of dedicated versions that will please off-roading pleasure-seekers, both the mild and hardcore.

Trail Edition

The Trail Edition features a 1.1-inch front and 0.5-inch rear suspension lift thanks to taller coil springs up front and spacers in the rear. These changes, along with the removal of a front air dam, increases the Taco’s approach and departure angles.

The Trail is based on the SR5 but gains a standard locking rear differential and skid plates borrowed from the TRD Off-Road package. Visually separating it from the other versions, the Trail Edition features unique bronze 16-inch wheels fitted with Goodyear Wrangler Tires, a heritage-inspired front grille with bronze accents, and can be specified with one of the following colours: Lunar Rock, Army Green, Midnight Black Metallic, and Super White. No matter the hue, badging will be black.

The bed features a new lockable bed storage bin with the driver’s side storage including insulation to double as a cooler. The Trail is also equipped with a 120V power outlet in the bed.

Nothing says off-road like TRD Pro with Toyota products. For 2022, the Tacoma TRD Pro includes a 1.5-inch front and 0.5-inch rear suspension lift thanks to TRD-tuned Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks. The suspension will also include machine-forged aluminum TRD-engineered upper control arms for added strength.

The TRD Pro will roll on black TRD wheels fitted with new Goodyear Territory all-terrain tires which will contrast impressively well with the available exterior colours: Electric Lime Metallic (exclusive), Super White, Magnetic Gray Metallic, and Midnight Black Metallic. Completing the look is a heritage-inspired front grille, the new TRD Pro stamping on the rear quarter panels, along with newly available hood graphics which complement the blacked-out hood scoop.

Both new 2022 Toyota Tacoma versions are powered by the standard 3.5-litre V6 engine which delivers 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. The TRD Pro will sound more aggressive due to the included TRD-tuned cat-back exhaust system.
