Toyota has a new TRD Pro model to debut on February 7 at the Chicago Auto Show . Unfortunately, the company's brief teaser video doesn't tell us much about the machine, including what vehicle is getting the off -road upgrades. At just 15 seconds, there's not much to see in this clip.

At the 2018 Chicago Auto Show , Toyota will show off updated versions of its TRD Pro range for the Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner. In the lone image of the new Tacoma TRD Pro , we can see the addition of an intake snorkel. For those unfamiliar with the feature, the snorkel prevents the intake

Toyota's TRD Pro line is more than just an aesthetic package, offering upgrades that truly do increase a vehicle's off-road capability. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota will introduce a new member of that family.

Toyota announced on Tuesday that it plans to unveil a new TRD Pro vehicle at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show later this week. The automaker says that, in addition to this new TRD Pro vehicle, the whole line will receive some updates for the 2020 model year.

Toyota Racing Development unveiled its TRD Pro off -road trucks at the Chicago Auto Show with new performance parts: tuned suspension, roof rack They're tuned for the specific characteristics of each vehicle by TRD engineers and offer improved dampening for on- and off -road driving situations.

It's not too hard to narrow down the possibilities. Both the Tacoma and Tundra have TRD Pro trims already, and while there's a new Tacoma coming to the show, I wouldn't call a 2020 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro "new," necessarily. There's also a 4Runner TRD Pro already, leaving the C-HR, RAV4, Highlander, Sequoia and Land Cruiser as possible candidates.

Since all TRD Pro vehicles right now are body-on-frame, I think it's safe to say the mystery car in the teaser above is either a Sequoia or a Land Cruiser. Given that Toyota already announced a new Land Cruiser variant for Chicago, I assume it will be the Sequoia, but we won't know for sure until the Chicago Auto Show kicks off on Thursday. A Land Cruiser TRD Pro would be gnarly.
