The most significant update for 2017, after the complete redesign of the 2016 model year Tacoma, is undoubtedly the all-new Tacoma TRD Pro trim. Taking TRD (Toyota Racing Development) models to a whole new level, the TRD Pro improves upon everything off-road and extreme sports enthusiasts love about the other Tacoma TRD models, the TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road. It seems that TRD engineers have tuned nearly every aspect of this model, including the front springs with a 1-inch lift, the rear suspension with progressive-rate off-road leaf springs, and the FOX 2.5-inch Internal Bypass shocks. From the exterior, you can tell that the all-new TRD Pro model means business, thanks to its unique TRD Pro skid plate, special cat-back exhaust systems, and Toyota heritage-inspired front grille.
Both power and fuel efficiency come standard on the Toyota Tacoma. Your new Tacoma can be tailored for your needs and lifestyle, thanks to a variety of available powertrain configurations. For starters, the 2017 Tacoma base model comes standard with a capable 2.7-liter, inline 4-cylinder engine, developing 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Toyota's potent 3.5-liter direct-injected V6 can be had in the Tacoma as well. Producing an impressive 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, the powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine, together with its available Tow Package, helps the Tacoma tow up to 6800 pounds and haul a payload of up to 1440 pounds! While most new Tacomas will feature a 6-speed automatic transmission, a 6-speed manual gearbox is optional and has been upgraded to optimize for fuel economy and smooth shifting. When equipped with the surprisingly efficient 3.5-liter V6 engine, the 2017 Tacoma can earn up to an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway.*
With the recent redesign, Toyota has upgraded the Tacoma's cabin with the very latest creature comforts of any other Toyota vehicle. The Tacoma proves that you don't have to choose between rugged versatility and a refined and well-appointed cabin. You will find that amenities like Toyota's popular Entune audio system, Bluetooth® wireless technology with hands-free phone capability, an integrated backup camera, air conditioning, and power windows and door locks are all provided as standard. Other cabin features available on the 2017 Toyota Tacoma mid-size pickup truck include:
For 2017, Toyota now offers its rugged yet refined Tacoma pickup truck in six well-equipped trim levels: the Tacoma SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and the all-new TRD Pro. The Tacoma SR certainly doesn't feel like a base model, with its substantial list of standard amenities like a backup camera, fabric-trimmed seats, and Entune Audio. The SR5 and TRD Sport trim levels add extra technology features like keyless entry and a 4.2-inch information display with navigation. If you seek added refinement, comfort, and safety features, then get into a Tacoma Limited, which adds leather-trimmed seating, a power tilt/sliding moonroof, and front dual zone automatic climate control. The extensive list of available features on the Toyota Tacoma continues with:
If you thought that driving a rugged pickup meant giving up some safety features, think again. Toyota has outfitted the Tacoma with many of the same innovative safety features that its other vehicles receive. With a suite of advanced safety features and new high-strength steel doors, the new Tacoma is built to protect your most precious cargo. The available rear parking sonar system is not only a safety feature, but it's mighty convenient too; the high-tech sonar system gives audible warning signals to the driver that change as you get closer to obstacles as you are in reverse gear.
