Toyota's coolest offroaders just got better.
Toyota is certainly no stranger to off-road vehicles. Sales of the Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, and Toyota 4Runner remain very strong, despite the fact all three are aging and face more recently redesigned competitors. The Tacoma, in particular, remains extremely popular. And for the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, the automaker is revealing a new value-packed special edition for all three aimed directly those who love the outdoors.
Introducing the 2021 Trail Special Editions for the Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner. Not only do all three focus on additional storage and conveniences for fresh-air enjoyment, but they also include unique styling and exclusive content. Perhaps best of all, the three are based on the SR5 trim and can be had in either 2WD or 4WD.
Starting with the Tacoma Trail, it starts with the SR5 Double Cab and comes with dark grey 18-inch TRD off-road wheels with Kevlar All-Terrain tires, a front grille straight from the Tacoma Limited, a 115-volt power outlet in the bed, and lockable bed storage on the driver's side that doubles as a cooler.
The Tundra Trail is based on the SR5 Crew Max with the SR5 Upgrade Package tacked on. Some of those package's features include a larger fuel tank, three cupholders, and a front center console. New Trail-spec additions feature a cool chrome grille from the top trim 1794 Edition and unique wheel designs. Like the Tacoma Trail, the Tundra Trail receives the same lockable bed storage and layout.
Lastly is the 4Runner Trail. It offers similar styling to the pickup trucks, but it has a couple of cool features all to itself: a 40-quart cooler and sliding cargo tray.
The cooler boasts a lockable lid, freezer-grade gasket allowing for an air-tight seal that keeps ice frozen for up to seven days, two heavy-duty latches with bottle openers, and a built-in drain plug. A flat top allows the cooler to double as a table surface. All three Trail Edition models can be had in Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, and Super White. Toyota says 7,000 Tacomas, 5,000 Tundras, and 4,000 4Runner Trail Editions are planned.
Pricing details and time of availability have yet to be announced.
