Toyota has introduced the 2012 Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series at the Texas State Fair.
Designed to tackle the toughest terrain, the T/X is equipped with an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, active traction control and downhill assist control. There's also an increased ride height (up 2-inches in front), Bilstein race shocks and TRD coil springs.
The exterior is virtually identical to the standard model, but there are special graphics and bead-lock style wheels with BF Goodrich T/A KO tires.
Power comes from a 4.0-liter V6 engine which can be mated to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. Performance specifications weren't released, so it remains unclear if the engine is the naturally-aspirated variant with 236 hp (176 kW / 239 PS) or the supercharged version with 304 hp (227 kW / 308 PS) and 334 lb-ft (452 Nm) of torque.
Regardless, the model will be available in Access and Double Cab (aka extended and crew cab) configurations when it is launched in the United States in the spring of 2012.
