The 2020 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro is the fourth automobile to put on this off-highway-prepared badge, following the footsteps of the Toyota Runner Tacoma and Tundra on the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

Offered in the USA in Magnetic Grey metallic with an Ice Edge roof, the RAV4 TRD Off-Road features dark grey front and rear lower facias, as well as front LED foglamps. Intermittent wipers are now standard, along with a 7.0-inch touchscreen.

The TRD Off-Road model is powered by Toyota's normally aspirated 2.5-litre petrol engine, rated at 151kW, and mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The RAV4 TRD Off-Road also comes with hill-start and descent assist and Trailer Sway Control (TSC). To complement the changes, TRD updated the tuning of the Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks and front and rear springs. New bump stops maximize compression direction wheel travel and help improve body control over large bumps and dips.

The updated Tacoma offers more than 30 configurations in six model grades: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro, and Limited. Also, the crossover flaunts a lightweight 18-inch wheels, shod in a special off-road tires Falken Wildpeak Trail. LED headlights come standard on the luxury-oriented Limited, while the lamps are optional on the TRD Sport trim. There's additionally a set of aluminum working boards and a roof rack.

In other respects, the 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro continues with its roster of hardcore capability. Inside, there is practical synthetic leather upholstery trim and washout vinyl floors with red stitching and TRD embroidery.

Of course, since it's a family hauler, the new Sequoia gets Toyota's Safety Sense P, but not just on the TRD Pro model, but as standard equipment on every trim level.
