The Sequoia TRD Pro isn't the only one showing off at the Chicago Auto Show; the best-selling Toyota Tacoma pickup also has a new look.

The standard Multi-Mode 4WD system uses a lockable TORSEN limited-slip center differential to apportion torque to the front and rear wheels, and a two-speed transfer case provides a low range ratio for tackling steep off-road trails. The extreme off-road of the Tacoma also receives a new 10-way power driver's seat and the eight-inch touchscreen. A TRD-tuned Fox internal bypass shock suspension is the main tool needed for the task, providing the vehicle with 7 compression zones and 2 rebound zones, as well as an increase in rebound travel of 18 mm.

While Toyota takes a while to release all-new utility vehicles, it's a bit of the opposite when it comes to giving them a mild makeover.

According to Toyota, the RAV4 TRD Off-Road has a suspension setup benefitting from the brand's rally program.
