    TRD - Toyota Racing Development

    SR5 - Sport Rally 5

    These are options / packages developed to include several accessories in the Tacoma to improve performance and appearance depending on your needs.

    TRD-Toyota Racing Developement , parts to upgrade your truck for a serious more powerful type of engine like adding a Supercharge.SR5 is for regular 6cylinder whether 4x4 or 4x2.Prerunner is a type of pickup with or without extra cab,where the back is expose with no enclosure. If I hear Tacoma, I think about toyota pick-up trucks

    it all depends on the vehicle...

    TRD: stands for Toyota Racing development.

    The TRD package is deferent on every Toyota vehicle, on a Tocoma, i believe, it has better off-rode suspension, auto locking differentials, engine, transmission and diff skid plates, wheel flairs on some.

    SR5 in todays market, is just another trim level, bucket seats (not leather), and a manual transmission in an option.

    back in the day SR5 had a different meaning....the 'S' denoted Sport, 'R' denoted the RN motor code, and '5'

    denoted the 5-speed transmission...so back in the day an SR5 was not available with an auto, but today it is! and today the engine code is not RN anymore.
