The Tacoma is powered by either a 2.7L 4-cylinder that makes 159 horsepower, or by a 3.5L V6 that makes 278 horsepower.
The Tacoma is offered with a wealth of customizable options, but it comes in six trims: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro and Limited.
The base SR version can be ordered with either the Access Cab, or with the 4-door 4X2 Double Cab. The Access Cab comes with a standard-length 6-foot bed, while the Double Cab is available with a 5-foot short bed as well. Standard equipment includes 16-inch wheels, power windows and door locks, a backup camera, an AM/FM/SiriusXM Satellite audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, Android Auto and a deck rail system that helps secure loose objects in the bed.
The Double Cab models allow buyers to choose between a 5-foot or 6-foot bed. SR5s include keyless entry, a 4.2-inch multi-information display in the instrument cluster, fog lamps and a bit more chrome on the grille of the truck.
The TRD Off-Road version adds both style and off-road utility to the Tacoma. Special 16-inch wheels look mean and stylish while functional additions include an electro-mechanical locking differential, hill-descent control and a multi-terrain select driving aid. Options on the TRD Off-Road include dual-zone climate control and a sunroof. The bigger V6 engine is standard on the model.
Where the TRD Off-Road is rugged, the TRD Sport is slick and stylish. Like the TRD Off-Road, the TRD Sport is only available with the V6 engine. Wheels are 17-inch alloys, while the interior gets a wireless smartphone charger. The bed features a 120V outlet while the daytime running lights use ultra-bright LEDs. A smart key is also standard on the TRD Sport.
The Limited comes only with the larger cabin and a V6. It adds color-keyed bumpers and chrome door handles and mirrors, polished 18-inch wheels, automatic climate control, a powered moonroof and leather-trimmed seats.
The TRD Pro offers LED headlights, 16-inch TRD Pro Black alloy wheels, unique exterior grille, badging, and hood scoop, leather-trimmed seats with a special headrest logo, a power sliding rear window with privacy glass, dual-zone automatic climate control, and blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. Standard off-road technologies include an electronically locking rear differential, front skid plate, a multi-terrain monitor, FOX internal bypass shocks, a cat-back exhaust, multi-terrain selection and crawl control.
