Well, it is that time of year for fans of Toyota 4Runner. And for Tundra and Tacoma and Sequoia enthusiasts too.
The new 2022 TRD Pro color will be announced in just a few short months. Last year, Lunar Rock was announced in late June. We are not all that far away.
This shade, Lunar Rock, is so popular with potential buyers that many people are still on long wait lists to get one. If you thought a 2020 Army Green was challenging to get, imagine waiting for a 2021 Lunar Rock Toyota Tundra or Tacoma or Sequoia or 4Runner.
Time to look forward to what is coming for 2022.
2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
Several Toyota forums have been circulating rumors of the potential new 2022 TRD Pro color choice. I found this speculation intriguing enough that I thought I would write about it and ask you for your thoughts.
A citrus lime color. Something like Electric Lime Metallic from the Prius C days. This is gaining momentum as a possible final choice.
Big thanks to Instagram user @4runnersnacks for mocking up this color, along with some other possible shades that would look absolutely wild on Tundra and 4Runner and Tacoma. Please follow his page to see them all.
Let the people decide on 2022 Toyota 4Runner
Another popular Instagram user, my friend trd.jon, opened up discussion on his page about this “limey” 4Runner TRD Pro. I found these opinions fascinating.
Luis_n_luis_gabriel observed, “That would be breaking with tradition. Not a bad color.”
gziladesigns commented. “I’ve heard it from multiple people, but we shall see soon enough!”
“I had that IM... loooooove the color.” Said rocksi80. Could Spring Green Metallic make a comeback in Tundra TRD Pro and 4Runner too?
“Kinda dig the green. Would look good out in the mountains.” Mentioned ginger4runner.
i_am_mr_sweetland offered up other alternatives. “I don’t know about that one. I would like to see maybe the brick or a nice darker brown.”
“Def looks better than I thought it would.” Stated yotawife.
midwest4r said. “Hmmm... yeah idk about this color. I saw a really nice maroon FJ yesterday and it would look so so good.” I am on board with a black cherry color too. More on that below.
“This is gonna be one that only the soccer moms drive, I think. Stated smitty_1320.
vomotorsports_tr4h is thinking of something far, far away. “My son said he would get the license plate Toyoda. It'll look great with that color.” The real question is – are we talking Yoda or Baby Yoda here? Either way, count me in any time I find a Star Wars reference.

“Black cherry or nothin.” Ccady1 drew a 4Runner black cherry-colored line in the sand.
“If the 2022 comes in that citrus metallic I’m buying it!” We have our first buyer in emgpr.
“I dig it, but honestly, I hope they do a black cherry as well.” Hoped themosth8edrealist.
jaynalack observed. “Think this color was ‘spring green’ on the Corolla iM...I will be upset if Toyota really does this to the TRD Pros though. I would rather see Canary Yellow.”
matt_drees offered. “Not a fan but who knows maybe it will look killer on the 4Runner.” Or a Toyota Tundra too. Maybe Toyota Tacoma.
vomotorsports_tr4h would be thrilled. “Finally, a color fitting for the Pro. I was getting tired of the same colors in a different shade.”
afrmnp had perhaps the top comment of the day. At least if you are a Toyota fan. “Anything looks good when it comes with a Pro Badge.”
More Toyota 4runner and Tundra colors
Since @4runnersnacks was nice enough to mock-up several other potential 4Runner TRD Pro color possibilities, I wanted to list them here so you can comment with your observations.
I think a Toyota Tundra in brick red would look tough and imposing. Imagine pulling your trailer through Rocky Mountain National Park in this one.
Sun Fusion Yellow
This is one of my personal favorites and it would be so different from all previous Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro colors. Could be bright yellow or mustard yellow and it would sell like crazy.
This color is also gaining traction in Toyota circles. Fans would like to see a Toyota Tundra and Toyota 4Runner and Toyota Tacoma in this color.
Final shade could be similar to Camry Brownstone color or retro Corolla dark brown hues.
I am not really feeling this color personally, but that certainly does not mean it would not look incredible on 4Runner or Tundra. Like the old Toyota Summer Rain shade.
Black Cherry is my personal favorite choice for 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. I need to see this sometime soon on 4Runner and Tacoma. It looked amazing in retro FJ Cruiser.
