Toyota Racing Development developed the Baja edition of the popular Tacoma. Toyota named this special edition the Baja because of Toyota’s success at the Baja 500 and 1000. The Baja 500 and 1000 are off road races in Mexico. Because of their success at those races, Toyota developed an off road edition to the Tacoma. It would be only natural to call it the Baja edition.ImageImage

The Toyota Tacoma Baja edition shows up at the dealership ready for off-roading. It comes standard with TRD’s off-road package, which includes hill start and downhill assist, traction control and rear locking differential. While this package is available on other Toyota trucks, what sets the Baja edition away from the rest are the other features only this Tacoma possesses. The Baja comes standard with BF Goodrich 16” beadlock-style wheels. The truck also bolsters 60mm Bilstein race shocks, and a 50mm remote-resevoir in the rear. The suspension of the truck also has TRD coil springs in the front. The Tacoma was risen nearly two inches, and has a wheel travel has gone up by one inch in the front and 1.5 in the rear. The only performance upgrade that Toyota gave to the Baja is a TRD cat-back exhaust. The last items that were added to the Tacoma are flat-black graphics placed on the rear of the truck. These are only to be seen on the Baja series truck.

The Baja edition Tacoma will be available with either a six-speed manual, or a five-speed automatic as an Access or DouImageble cab. Under the hood will be the standard 4.0L V-6, which produces 236 horsepower and 266ft/lbs of torque at 4000 RPM. The interior of the Baja is the standard Toyota interior, which is also equipped with the Entune infotainment system.

For those who may have never heard of bilstein equipment, here’s a brief rundown on what they have accomplished recently. At the 24 hour race at the challenging Nurburgring racetrack, a Mercedes SLS equipped with a Bilstein race suspension took first place. In fact, five of the top 10 cars in the race featured Bilstein suspensions.
