Toyota sets prices for Baja Series TacomaWed, 25 Apr 2012
Toyota has released sticker prices for the TRD T/X Baja Series package for the Tacoma pickup. The off-road bits will tack on $5,015 to the sticker of a four-wheel-drive Tacoma, minus the current $650 factory credit. The least expensive version will sticker at $33,800 including shipping charges.
The Baja Series package adds:
-- 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
-- Exclusive TRD tailgate badge
The Baja Series was inspired by the company's racing heritage that dates back nearly three decades. Toyota's pedigree includes numerous titles at the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000. The option group is built on top of the company's TRD Off-Road package, which costs about $3,500 in 4x4 applications.
The Tacoma was updated for 2012 with a restyled front end including a new hood, grille and headlights. Inside, the Tacoma received a new instrument-panel design with a revised gauge cluster and a new steering wheel.
The 2012 Toyota Tacoma continues with the option of a 159-hp four-cylinder engine or a 236-hp V6.
