    Both the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Ford Raptor look great in winter white. Which do you think looks better? Reprinted with permission from TorqueNews.com.




    Off-road pickups look great blasting through snow drifts. Ten months ago Toyota announced the all-new 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro with a winter photo shoot highlighting the white on black TRD Pro with its nose up showing off its undergarments (skid plate and suspension). The images have been used dozens of times by publications this year including by Torque News.


    This past week, Ford released a cool new video of one of our favorite drivers, Ken Block, driving the new Raptor in snow. It is the best Raptor video so far for the new generation, the past ones being way too sedate. Interestingly, Ford also chose white on black as the colors of the test vehicle. (see the video here)



    Our question for the Torque News fans who like either or both trucks, is which truck wears the Storm Trooper uniform better? In the images, the Raptor definitely has the edge since Block is busting through snow and the truck has the appearance of speed. On the other hand, the Tacoma looks better with its lights on highlighting its bling bling. We have to call the skidplates a tie.
    Tell us below which truck looks better to you. If you want to add your opinion on which is the ultimate off-road pickup, feel free to add your thoughts on that as well!

    TRD pro is a Tacoma off-road with a minor lift and better shocks. You could spend less money by upgrading a regular tacoma with better components than the TRD pro offers.

    Its not like a raptor with a 100% revised mid-travel suspension that would require swapping far more than just the shocks and springs.

    Like already stated, there's no contest - the Raptor. The Taco is FUGLY!
