Toyota has announced pricing details for the TRD T/X Baja Series Package, which draws inspiration from the automaker's decades-long involvement in the grueling Baja 500 and 1000 races and adds a host of trail-taming off-road kit to the Tacoma pickup.

The package costs $5,015 but is eligible for a $650 factory credit, bringing the total price of the least expensive Baja Series Tacoma to $33,800 (including destination). It is available on Access and Double Cab Tacoma 4--4 models equipped with the TRD Off-Road Package for Baja and the 4.0-liter V-6.

On top of the extras included in the TRD Off-Road Package - an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, active traction control, hill-start assist control and downhill assist control - the Baja Series Package brings TRD/Blisten racing shocks and TRD coil springs that increase ride height by almost two inches at the front and 1.5 inches at the rear.

Unique gun-metal gray, bead-lock style off-road wheels shod in 16-inch BFGoodrich T/A KO rubber add an extra measure of style and capability, while special exterior graphics and a TRD cat-back exhaust complete the package.

Toyota says that Baja Series Tacoma models will begin arriving in showrooms in May.
