    So I've been looking for a new Tacoma lately and I stumbled upon what I believe is a rare Tacoma!

    I've always believed the TRD package were strictly v6 models. I stand corrected! I have found one in Lexington, Ky that is a 2.7l TRD with the rear diff locks! Factory installed! I have proof!


    I'm test driving it Saturday!!

    Nope. There are very few TRD 2.7's, and they had an open diff.

    I'm a having the sales guy send me a photo of the engine just to confirm. He swears its a 4 , since he drives nearly the same truck.

    It's a V6 TRD. They never equipped the 4cyl TRDs with a locker.

    If you look at the interior pics you can see the diff lock button.

    I don't know its weird, the factory sheet even states its a 2.7l with a rear diff lock. :confused:

    The pics confirm the Rear diff lock, still waiting on the engine photos

    Spec sheet states that it has a 3.42 axle ratio.

    Would this confirm or deny if its v6 or not??

    IIRC, V6 TRDs have 4.10 ratios...

    3.42 seems kinda low? My 2.7L 4x4 has 4.30s...

    It also says it is a 4 spd auto in the add.. It is odd to have a 5 speed trans gear shift sticking out of the floor in the pics. I think he should have it looked at. That truck is a tranformer
