Toyota Introduced Tacoma TX Package Concept

Japanese carmaker Toyota seems to have a lot of surprises prepared at this year’s SEMA Show. After we presented you with the Tacoma All-Terrain Gamer Project yesterday, another tweaked pickup truck has been revealed by the company.

Dubbed the Tacoma TX Package Concept, the vehicle is based on the 2010 Tacoma PreRunner SR5 model, mostly boasting new styling elements and with no serious enhancements to the vehicle's performances.

Keeping the 4.0-litre V6 DOHC 24V VVT-i engine making 174 kW (236 hp) and mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission, the carmaker made further enhancements, including Bilstein 5100 Series shocks plated in cadmium, genuine Toyota lightweight aluminium tube steps with black finish, a TRD stainless steel cat-back exhaust system and TRD 16 X 7.5 off-road wheels inside BF Goodrich all-terrain T/A KO LT285/75X16 tires.

Obviously aiming for those young at heart, the Tacoma TX Package Concept car comes with a TX2 and TX Pro graphic design for the driver and passenger side respectively, inspired by SCORE International, Vans Warp Tours, Coachella Music Festival and SuperCross events.

As you might have guessed, the ‘pro’ designation is meant to attract those seriously into action sports.

Standard equipment fitted on the factory car includes fog lamps, chrome grille surrounds, colour-coded bumpers and a fibre-reinforced sheet molded composite (SMC) inner bed with steel outer panels.

Inside, passenger comfort features include cruise control, a leather steering wheel with audio controls and TRD floor mats.
