2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series Revealed
At the Texas State Fair the Japanese automaker Toyota unveiled the Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series which has been designed in order to tackle the roughest terrain out there. It has an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, downhill assist control and active traction control. In addition, they’ve also increased the ride height by 2 inches in the front, while adding TRD coil springs and Bilstein race shocks.
On the outside it looks just about the same as the standard version, except for the bead-lock style wheels wrapped around in BF Goodrich T/A KO tires along with the special graphics.
It is motivated by a V6 4.0-liter engine that can be linked to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed automatic transmission. No word about the performance of this engine so we don’t know if it is the supercharged version that develops 304 hp (308 PS / 227 kW) and 334 lb.-ft (452 Nm) of torque or the naturally-aspirated variant with 236 hp (239 PS / 176 kW).
The 2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series will be available in Access (extended) and Double Cab (crew cab) configurations when it will arrive in the U.S. next spring.
