The Tacoma comes with a 2.7L inline-4 engine that’s rated at 159 horsepower, though a 278-horsepower 3.5L V6 option is available. Most models come with a 6-speed manual transmission, but a 6-speed automatic transmission is optional. Rear-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive are both available.
Regardless of engine option, the 2019 Toyota has smooth shifts and a confident drive quality, along with an absorbent suspension that keeps the road bumpiness to a minimum. With one of the two off-road packages, complete with crawl control, hill-descent control, traction modes, and a push-button locking rear differential, it’s an off-road dominator. Properly equipped, it can also tow up to 6,800 pounds.
Interior Comfort and Space
The Tacoma comes in crew cab or extended cab models, which offer heavily padded, supportive seating that provides plenty of long-distance comfort. There’s ample head- and legroom as well, ensuring that even larger passengers have space to stretch out and relax on long drives. The interior materials are durable and high-quality, further enhancing the comfort.
Extended cab Tacoma models come with a 5-foot-long short bed, while crew cab models can be equipped with a 5-foot short bed or a 6-foot long bed. Rear-hinged back doors open to reveal more space for interior cargo storage as well.
The pickup can be equipped with high-tech features designed to improve entertainment and information options, such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. This system features a sharp, responsive touchscreen interface, large, crisp graphics, and a variety of third-party app compatibility. With these features, you can enjoy an array of entertainment and media options on your drive.
All Tacoma models come equipped with advanced safety features as well. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, And Lane Departure Warnings are all standard, and Blind-Spot Monitors are optional for higher trim levels. These features provide additional visibility and awareness of the area around your vehicle, giving you advance warning to prevent a collision. Some features actually take measures to mitigate the effects of a collision as well, by reducing engine speed or applying the brakes.
