Eaton’s Vehicle Group Launches Toyota Tacoma ELocker

Company says other aftermarket products are on the horizon.

Eaton announced its Vehicle Group has launched an aftermarket ELocker differential for Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup trucks with manual transmissions, model years 2016 to present with an 8.9-inch ring gear and 32 spline axle. It’s one of 14 aftermarket new differential part numbers for a variety of late-model vehicles.

In addition to the recently added ELocker differential for the Toyota Tacoma, Eaton introduced 11 other ELocker differentials in the past year that fit Toyota 4Runner, FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Tundra and older Tacoma dimodels.

“We heard requests from Toyota truck enthusiasts and went to work to fulfill their needs,” said Corneliu Bogdan, director, Aftermarket Product Strategy, Eaton’s Vehicle Group North America. “We’re glad to introduce new products that help them enjoy their outdoor lifestyle.”

The Eaton ELocker is an electronic locking differential designed for drivers that want full control and traction on demand. The ELocker features net-forged gears for the strength and durability needed for off-road and recreational driving, the company says. Its electronic controls provide driver-selectable operation and added reliability over similar air-controlled products. By simply pressing a dash switch, drivers can conveniently engage their differential to a 100 percent locked position and back to an open position.

In addition to the new Tacoma ELocker application, Eaton’s Vehicle Group recently introduced Detroit Truetrac differential applications for late-model RAM 1500 V-6 and V-8 pickups, General Motors 1500 pickup trucks with V-8 engines, and 2015 and newer S550 Ford Mustangs with 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4, 3.7-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter V8 engines.

According to Eaton, Truetrac offers RAM and GM pickup owners improved handling, better off-road performance and increased stability while towing, while Mustang owners will benefit from a tuned, high-bias preload system that enhances aggressive on-road performance and optimized wheel traction for maximum acceleration, making it ideal for street and strip applications.

“Eaton’s aftermarket team continues to add exciting new products to our aftermarket portfolio,” said Bogdan. “Our aftermarket customers are passionate about their vehicles, and we share that passion to help fulfill their needs.”
