Default 2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series





Just a few weeks ago, we covered the intro of the T/X Baja Series package from Toyota at the State Fair of Texas. We even did a video walk-around of a black-on-red TRD Baja Series that’s become quite popular for a lot of Tacoma and off-road fans.

There’s no question there’s been a healthy dose of adrenaline shot into several pickup truck segments recently. Truck makers seem to want to do a better job of showing off their 4x4 credentials. No matter what you think of the Raptor or Ram Runner, they’re getting attention everywhere they’re seen. Maybe that’s why Toyota has decided to jump (actually, more of a dipping of the toe) into the marketplace with its Baja Series Tacoma.

So when we saw that Toyota brought a black-on-black Baja Series Tacoma to the Texas Auto Writers Association Texas Truck Rodeo, we knew we had to get as much seat time as possible.

The Baja Series is an add-on package on top of Tacoma’s TRD package that replaces the factory TRD shocks with Bilstein dual-reservoir shocks in the back and longer coils and Bilstein shocks up front. The extra height in front gives the truck a nice even look, with a good chunk of traction help from 265/70R16 BFGoodrich tires and unique beadlock-style rims.

Toyota is likely to produce only about 1,000 of the pickups in both Access and Double Cab configurations starting in May, said Richard Bame, national marketing manager for all Toyota trucks. Toyota will assess the project at the end of 2013 and figure what’s next.
