The model manages to keep the traditional shield-shaped grille that many Alfa Romeo models had before it as it combines pretty well with the aggressive hood design.

2017 Toyota Tacoma – Release Date, Review and Specs

Announced for this year is the new 2017 Toyota Tacoma model. What is interesting this time is that we are getting a comeback of the TRD pro mark which actually disappeared with the previous model. The 2016 version was released with all sorts of upgrades but lacked the TRD Pro trim, which was seen as a big flaw from the production line. This time they decided it was better to bring it back and include it into the Tacoma offer.

Toyota came out with its TRD Pro series in the 2014 model year as it made its debut on such modes as Toyota Tundra, 4Runner and of course the Tacoma. Both models kept unchanged since their debut but that was not the case with the Tacoma vehicle, which has gone through a generation change which saw some different additions and exclusions, one of them being the exclusion of the TRD Pro mark.

So this actually means that the TRD Pro is going to come with the same set of off-road equipment as the TRD Off-Road trim does.
