The 2017 Toyota Tacoma offers drivers the best of both worlds when it comes to capability and fuel economy. This midsize truck may not boast all the towing power of a full-size model but it certainly packs a punch. Affordability and durability are both standard features in the new ToyotaTacoma.
The new 2017 Toyota Tacoma delivers a bold, aggressive look marked by the fenders and character lines. The front grille hints at what lies under the hood, providing this off-road truck with a stance no other pickup can match. An available hood scoop adds an extra touch of intimidation as well.
An aerodynamic design provides better air flow that effectively reduces wind noise on the interior. The Tacoma also features an embossed tailgate with the Tacoma logo that lets other drivers know exactly what they’re following.
Such a muscular pickup surely has a rough, uncomfortable interior, right? Wrong. The Toyota Tacoma’s exterior may be bold, but the interior spells sophistication with a quiet, refined cabin. An available 4.2-inch Multi-Information Display provides drivers with all the necessary information they need like fuel economy, tire pressure, and what song is playing.
Available dual-zone automatic climate control ensures every passenger rides in comfort, no matter what the weather is like. Finally, an available moonroof lets drivers access the outdoors without leaving their truck.
Don’t worry. The Tacoma’s interior may be comfortable, but it is still tough enough for all the dirt and grime that comes with off-road adventures!
The Toyota Tacoma is designed for off-roading, which is why it features technologies like Crawl Control, Multi-Terrain Select, Hill Start Assist Control, and more. The icing on the cake is the Tacoma’s 6,800-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped.
Under the hood are one of two available engines. First, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine produces an impressive 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Then, the larger 3.5-liter V6 engine pumps out 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, giving drivers the option to tackle tough terrain with ease.
As a midsize truck, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma provides optimized efficiency both on- and off-road. The smaller 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine provides drivers with an EPA-estimated 19 city/24 highway mpg. The 3.5-liter V6 engine earns a respectable EPA-estimated 18 city/23 highway mpg.
The new Toyota Tacoma features the standard Star Safety System that includes technologies like Smart Stop Technology, Vehicle Stability Control, and Traction Control. Available rear parking assist sonar allows drivers to determine how much room they have and issues a warning if the Tacoma gets too close.
The Tacoma also comes with a standard two-year/25,000-mile no-cost maintenance plan as well as 24-hour roadside assistance for two years with no mileage restriction.
