Which Toyota Tacoma Should You Buy From the Toyota Truck Lineup?

February 16th, 2017 by


The Toyota Tacoma is an excellent choice for Amarillo drivers who are looking for a pickup that can work well as a daily vehicle but is also able to tow and haul when needed. The Tacoma offers two engines so you can get the right balance of power and towing capabilities (up to 6,800 pounds). If preferred, it can carry 1,440 pounds in the truck bed. Of course, the Tacoma can also be luxurious, and its midsize designation makes it maneuverable enough to park with ease.

Comparing Toyota Tacoma Trims

No matter which Toyota Tacoma you choose to drive, you will be happy. That being said, each trim will appeal to a different driver, meaning that you should do some research to ensure that you choose the right one for your needs.

Tacoma SR
The Toyota Tacoma SR is the most affordable of the lineup. With this model, you can choose from a 5’ or 6.1’ truck bed, as well as 2WD or 4WD. Even on a budget, it delivers everything you truly need, such as a tough composite bed, movable tie-down cleats, and a backup camera. It also has lumbar adjustment for the driver, an Entune® system with a USB interface and Bluetooth®, and a GoPro® mount.

If you are on a budget, this Tacoma is an excellent choice.

Tacoma SR5
At minimum, most drivers want the features of the Tacoma SR5, including an available long wheelbase, extra chrome on the exterior, fog lights, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Entune® system adds connected navigation, Siri Eyes Free®, and satellite radio. You can also get an extra 4.2” screen.

Tacoma TRD Sport
This model features a stylish hood scoop that adds to the overall style. It also gives you some TRD off-roading features without going overboard. The feature list wraps up with smart entry, push-button start, an outlet in the truck bed, a 7” touchscreen, and integrated navigation.

Tacoma TRD Off-Road

If you want to be able to go off-road in your Toyota Tacoma with ease, go with the TRD Off-Road. It has all-terrain tires, Bilstein® monotube shocks, a lockable rear differential, additional skid plates, and advanced off-road traction control.

Tacoma Limited
People who want to make their Tacoma as luxurious as possible will love the Limited with its standard V6 engine, body color accessories, and larger tires. Included are leather-trimmed seats, JBL® premium sound, a sunroof, heated seats, and blind spot monitoring.

Tacoma TRD Pro
For even more off-roading capabilities, go with the Tacoma TRD Pro. It has some unique styling, Fox 2.5 internal bypass shocks, a hood scoop, the capabilities of the TRD Off-Road, and the luxury appointments of the Limited.
