2021 Toyota Family of Trail Special Edition Models

Toyota trucks – Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner – are perennial favorites of serious adventurers who love the outdoors.  So much so, these Toyota trucks regularly lead their segments as buyers – who love camping, fishing, and hiking – chose them year after year.

In response to that support from those outdoor buyers, Toyota is adding special features to the 2021 models to enhance the buyer adventuring experience.

Coming this summer are a special run of the 2021 Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner as Trail Special Editions. All will add emphasis on extra storage and convenience, with unique styling and exclusive content added for good measure on a truck by truck basis.

Considered Special Editions rather than limited editions, the production volume will be low. Toyota is planning to equip just 7,000 Tacomas, 5,000 Tundras and 4,000 4Runners as Trail Editions.  The early buyer will have the best selection given the low production.

Trail Edition Detail

All three 2021 Toyota Trail editions are based on their respective versatile SR5 grade trim levels to deliver high value. Each offers the choice of 2WD or 4WD.

All Trail editions feature black exterior badging, plus black seating with tan stitching. In all versions, standard all- weather floor liners help catch the outdoor elements that come in on occupants’ feet. 

Trail color choices include Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, and Super White. From there, each Trail model has its own unique set of Trail upgrades.

The Tacoma Trail – built on the SR5 Double Cab – features a set of Dark Gray 16-inch TRD Off-Road wheels with Kevlar All- Terrain tires.  The grille, borrowed from the Tacoma Limited, adds a custom touch.
