2015 Pricing for TRD Pro Series Tacoma

2015_Toyota_TRDPro_Tacoma_006 II

Toyota has finally released pricing on its new TRD Pro Series Tacoma package, which will be available in August. As you may recall, we had a blast driving the new off-road package through the desert race routes outside Las Vegas. And that shouldn't surprise anyone because this new Toyota Racing Development Pro Tacoma offers even more suspension and design changes than the previous-generation Baja T/X.

As a quick reminder, the new TRD Pro Tacoma has unique, dual reservoir shocks, race-inspired bump stops, 16-inch headlock-style rims, almost 2 inches of front-end lift, more wheel travel, a TRD exhaust, cool badging and a classic front grille that spells out the name Toyota, just like the company did back in the day.

When the Baja T|X debuted, prices started in the mid-$33,000 range (Access Cab and six-speed manual transmission) and topped out at $36,000 (double cab with a five-speed automatic). The new, more aggressively equipped and more capable TRD Pro Series Tacoma comes with a healthy price jump when compared to the 2012 Baja T/X prices (see the differences below), but we think it's worth it.

We also like that Toyota will continue to offer both cab configurations with both a manual and automatic transmission, and we think the unique grille should be moved across the entire truck lineup. Additionally, Toyota says it's in a much better postition at the San Antonio truck plant be flexible with Pro Series Tacomas. The previous Baja was a special-run model, meaning Toyota did only one or two runs a year to make the 1000 or so Baja T/Xs per year that were sold in 2012 and 2013. 

2015 TRD Pro Series Tacoma pricing (including destination):

  • Tacoma Access Cab V-6 six-speed manual: $36,410 (2012 Baja T/X $33,800)
  • Tacoma Access Cab V-6 five-speed automatic: $37,390 ($34,785)
  • Tacoma Double Cab V-6 six-speed manual: $37,320 ($35,085)
  • Tacoma Double Cab V-6 five-speed automatic: $38,300 ($36,065)

A solid little truck, but for about the cost of a burger a day, you can be cruising the much more capable Raptor instead...

So in other words, if you don't really thrash your pickup out in the off road realm, you don't need to spend 35-40k for a 10 year old midsizer.

That's absolutely insane.

Toyota, I'm through with you. Your trucks are for the top 1% now.

I think that Tacoma is a step closer to getting my attention but it still has that same old motor. Love the fact it comes with sport tuned exhaust.


I am with on the engine thing. This a good looking truck with a lot of off road goodies, but this truck has been way past due for an engine upgrade. All the other makes have smaller yet considerably more powerful and more fuel efficient base V6 engines. Maybe they can collaborate with Ford and put a 2.7L Ecoboost in this puppy. Now that would be awesome.

I agree with everyone that this is too much money for a truck on an aging platform and a powertrain that is well behind.

Regarding midsizers, I am a firm believer that they have to be reasonably priced for people to buy them. What is reasonable? Well, to for me that would be under 30k with base models even being under 20k.

Not everyone wants a full sized truck, but when someone can get a much better value in a full size truck, they will either up size or leave the market. This is why the midsize market hasn't been doing well.

Toyota really needs to work on their V6 engine. I mean Ford, Ram and even GM offer more powerful and efficeint V6's than Toyota. Most of the fullsize V6 FE numbers I've seen lately are comparable to Toyota's midsize FE numbers.

@Tom Lemon/DenverMike/TRX-4 Tom and all the other detractors,

The more you push the more I will become resolute.

What I find intriguing is that you have labelled me a midsize zealot, when in fact I don't support anything.

I give midsize feedback because you guys don't have what we have.

You seem to talk about midsizers much more than I do, you must very interested in them.

Give it up, between all of you I don't think you are convincing.

It's all well and good to be loyal. But loyalty can only go so far.

When there is a plethora of facts and data supporting an argument it becomes rather boring. Sort of like re-inventing the wheel, if you have heard of that phrase.

Most of the time the impression I'm gaining is that I'm debating the same person, but with different names.

Post what you want, I have proven all of you are just ignorant and fearful of what you deem the unknown.

Our country went more or less what you are going through now. You have nothing to worry about. No matter what happens in your vehicle market there will always be some form of light commercial vehicle.

"... and we think the unique grille should be moved across the entire truck lineup."

Agree, the "TOYOTA" lettering across the grill looks much better than the stylized "T." Do this for the trucks and leave the badge for the cars.

Cool truck, but $36k for a long-in-the-tooth Tacoma? Way too much.

@Tom Lemon

Quit the crap, really.

It's getting long in the tooth.

You want to debate, but it has to be on your terms.

Learn to debate with good information, then we might be able to have a decent debate.

Opinions are good, but if they are only your view to support the UAW, then how good are they. Look at what you guys have done to Detroit.

Terror tactics (union tactics) don't work on me.

If PUTC wants the UAW or whatever to control this site I suppose it's their decision.

It's not kids like I've been told by PUTC.


STFU already. I and everyone else for that matter are tired of reading all of your never ending BS on this site. Drink yourself a nice big tall glass of STFU and have a nice day. TROLL!

@Tom Lemon
You are a bottom feeding piece of sh!t and it's because of you this blog has the problems it does.

same as the 2005

after reading this article and doing some research on the 2015 version of Toyota's "Raptor Fighter" I decided to buy a Ram. Now I know everyone has their opinion but I came from a Toyota family for years and years. Could not take the fact that Toyota is outdated and continues to keep building the old trucks every single year. Had 2 Tacoma's recalled for frame rot. Enough is enough. Ford f150 and gmc sierra were nice, but the Ram styling and ride won it over. All in all they are all great trucks but seems Ram keeps doing something right. Toyota needs to step up or they will be the next in the basement!!!

This is funny. Big Al hasn't posted in a few weeks.

A moron arguing with a ghost.

I like the Tacoma but I am not paying that much money for a truck from the last century.

"This is funny. Big Al hasn't posted in a few weeks. A moron arguing with a ghost."

Actually, moron, that was Big Al or somebody else arguing with HIMSELF. I never posted in this thread.

@the real Tom Lemon - thank you for proving my point.

I did own a new 2011 Tacoma 4x4 DC Sport with a manual for about 8 months but got rid of it cause the wheels and the doors rusted and the heater blower pooped out and the Dealer and Toyota refused all and any warranty repair so I got rid of it so I can get the best resale value.
But I did like driving it, it was easy to drive and park but the part I liked best is how quickly the 4x4 engaged where the F-150 takes FOREVER for the 4x4 to kick in!
I do admit I am getting better gas mileage with the F-150 than what the Tacoma got, but at least I got respect for owning the Tacoma where I get NO RESPECT owning a F-150.

I don't post on here very often, but I got to say the trolls on here are destroying this site. All these hijacked names are just sad. Grow up people and get out of your parent's basement, get a life, and meet a real woman, not some 45 year old dude hiding in their parent's basement pretending to be a girl like you are. Just sad.......

@Tom Lemon,

I have a hunch that Lou_BC is the source of all of this trolling.

@Paul - file a complaint and see where it gets you.

BTW - you need a valid email address to do that since they will ask for more information.

36K for what?

Talk about overpriced. Bring on the 2015 Colorado.
