Toyota Kicks Up Some Dust with the All-New TRD Pro Series of Off-Road Vehicles

CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Get ready to go where even roads fear to tread with the adrenaline-pumping TRD Pro Series from Toyota.  Already favorites among serious off-roaders, the 2015 Toyota Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner will get even more capable with these new, aggressive off-road packages designed by the experts at Toyota Racing Development (TRD). 

Rising from the Desert
The TRD Pro Series arises from Toyota's storied off-road racing heritage, with numerous victories in the grueling Baja 500 and 1000 endurance races.  Born from this experience in the desert, Toyota's terrain-conquering vehicles will help serious off-roaders go places they never dreamed possible.

Street Cred On and Off-Road
The TRD Pro Series is the most-advanced yet in a long line of TRD packages for Toyota trucks that dates back to 1998 when the first Off-Road package was introduced for Tacoma.  

TRD has been an in-house engine and chassis developer for successful Toyota racing activities around the world for nearly four decades.  It also develops motorsport-derived accessories for Toyota, Lexus and Scion street cars and trucks.  TRD's U.S. operations were first established in 1979 and are headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., with an additional facility in Salisbury, N.C.      

The TRD Pro Series will start getting down and dirty in the fall of 2014.
