Other brands do this exact thing. They tend to put the base trims out first to at least accumulate some sales then offer the heavy hitters. The heavy hitters this time around aren’t only the TRD Pro and Trailhunter but also that I-Force Max. The Powertrain alone is very interesting with how much power and torque is delivered and I’m almost certain that Toyota wanted to get it right before it releases. Maybe fix some of the quirks about it so that it’s a smooth launch and not a lot of issues off the bat.Wouldn't surprise me since the new 2024 Tacoma is on sale already without TRD Pro and Trailhunter trims for sale... and not even their pricing nor MPG have been announced.
Anyone have any idea why the delay?
But I agree, I hope we see a 2025 4Runner TRD Pro and Trailhunter versions immediately on sale at launch.
I think that’s also why it’s taken Toyota long to release the LC to the public. That I-Force max is something else.
