Toyota Promotes Baja Race Trucks, Directly Challenges Raptor?
Toyota seems to be finally getting pretty serious about promoting their off-road legacy, Ivan Stewart and the TRD Pro. With a Baja race team established and a large booth at the upcoming 2014 SEMA show, Toyota is directly challenging the Ford Raptor’s dominance in the segment. It is about time.

TRD Pro Package Pricing Announced – Pricey, But Not As Much As A Raptor
The Tundra’s new TRD Pro package isn’t directly comparable to Ford’s Raptor F-150. The Raptor is more heavily customized for off-roading, offers more power, a wider track, a shorter wheelbase, and a few other (admittedly awesome) extras.
Still, it’s not as if the two trucks don’t have a lot in common. Both offer increased ground clearance and suspension travel (about 1.5″ more travel front and rear on the Tundra), top-grade shocks, unique styling, and under-body protection. Both also seem to be targeting truck buyers with LOTS of extra cash, as Toyota and Ford are demanding a hefty premium for these trucks.
While a true head-to-head off-road comparison of these trucks has yet to be completed, there’s one area where the Tundra has a clear advantage over the Raptor: Price. Toyota’s announced pricing for the TRD Pro Tundra, and it’s thousands less than the average Raptor.
