When a sedan or SUV won’t do the trick for your demanding lifestyle, you’ll need a vehicle that can keep pace. Look no further than the 2018 Toyota Tacoma. This powerhouse pickup is ready to hit the road, no matter where it takes you.
Potent Engine Options
You have several engine choices when it comes to your new Tacoma. The stock engine is a 2.7-liter inline-four that produces 180 lb-ft of torque and 159 horsepower. However, if you’re going to be using your truck to tote or tow around a lot of gear, consider upgrading to the 3.5-liter V6 engine, which puts out an impressive 265 lb-ft of torque and 278 horsepower.
As for transmissions, you’ll have your choice of a six-speed automatic or manual that can be paired with either rear- or four-wheel drive.
Powerful Towing and Payload
Chances are, you’ll be using your truck to tow around heavy construction or recreational equipment. At its maximum towing capacity, the Tacoma can pull 6,800 pounds, meaning you’ll have no issues carrying around the heaviest of machines. If you choose the four-wheel drive option, you’ll get a still-impressive 6,500-pound limit.
However, your equipment won’t always be dragging behind your truck. In many cases, you’ll want to load up your bed. With a max payload of 1,620 pounds, the Tacoma should offer you no problems when it comes to transporting your goods.
Safety on the Road
You want your vehicle to always be safe, which is why Toyota has added its Toyota Safety Sense-P™ features to the Tacoma. These include a number of active safety tools, including adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, automatic high beams, and lane-departure warning.
