Pricing details for Toyota’s TRD T/X Baja Series package for the Tacoma pickup have been released. When fitted with various off-road elements, the four-wheel-drive Tacoma will cost $5,015 more but the current $650 factory credit still has to be deducted. It has a starting price of $33,800 (with shipping charges included).
The Baja Series package also includes off-road-tuned front and rear TRD Bilstein racing shocks, Electronically controlled locking rear differential, Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), Downhill Assist Control (DAC), BF Goodrich T/A KO tires (LT265/70R-16) with bead-lock-style off-road wheels with exclusive gunmetal gray finish, TRD cat-back exhaust, Front ride height increased by nearly two inches, Matte black T|X Baja Vehicle side graphics, and Exclusive TRD tailgate badge.
For the Baja Series, Toyota was inspired by its nearly 30 years of racing history. Toyota has gotten many title wins at the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000. This option group is available on top of Toyota’s TRD Off-Road package, which is priced at around $3,500 in 4x4 applications.
For the 2012 model year, the Tacoma got updates, which include a restyled front end that has a new hood, grille and headlights.
The Tacoma also got a new instrument-panel design with a revised gauge cluster and a new steering wheel. The 2012 Toyota Tacoma is also offered with the option of either a 159-hp four-cylinder engine or a 236-hp V6.
