Earlier in 2014, Toyota revealed its off-road-ready Pro Series lineup, which included the Tacoma, 4Runner and Tundra. In July, Toyota revealed pricing for the two smaller Pro Series model — the Tacoma and the 4Runner — and now the lineup is complete with the revealing of the Tundra Pro Series’ price.
The Tundra Pro Series comes standard with a slew of off-roading bits including TRD Billstein shocks on the front and rear with remote reservoirs. TRD-tuned front springs with a 2-inch lift, 18-inch black TRD alloy wheels with Michelin Off-Road tires, a TRD front skid plate, and a reduced spring rate. On top of the off-roading bits there are also a few visual and audio goodies that come with this rig, and they include TRD floor mats, a TRD shifter knob, a retro-inspired “TOYOTA” grille, a TRD dual-exhaust system, TRD PRO stamping on the outsides of the bed, multi-reflector halogen headlights with black sport bezels and manual level control, a unique upholstery color with red contrast stitching, and a TRD PRO instrument panel insert.
It goes without saying that this pickup is more that well-equipped to handle plenty of off-the-beaten-path driving, and it should fetch a hefty fee. While there is a slight bump in price, it is not nearly as much as one may expect. The base version, which comes in the Double Cab format with four-wheel drive and a six-speed auto transmission, checks in at $41,285. Toyota didn’t let us know what trim level the Tundra Pro Series is based upon, but still it is only roughly a $10k bump over the Tundra SR with the same drivetrain and cab setup. Considering the amount of off-road goodies this model has, that is quite the bargain. Rounding out the Tundra Pro Series lineup if the CrewMax cab version for $43,900.
The Tundra Pro Series starts rumbling into dealers in September 2014.
