What’s New in the 2021 Toyota Tacoma?
Toyota has premiered a new trim level for the 2021 Tacoma. The Trail Special Edition arrives as a limited-production model based on the SR5 variation in a roomy Crew Cab body style.
Available with either rear- or four-wheel drive, the Trail Special Edition comes with a lockable storage unit, unique looks, a 120-volt outlet in the truck bed, and more. The recently added Nightshade Edition sports distinctive paint colors with black accents.
The Tacoma comes standard with a 159-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, while Toyota also offers a 278-horsepower V6. Gear shifting can be handled through either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic, with easy acceleration when you need it. When the truck is equipped to tow, it can pull 6,800 pounds. It can also be equipped to haul up to 1,685 pounds. If you want to go off-road, check out the TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro trims with performance gear like skid plates, active traction control, and specialized suspension.
The Tacoma’s cab keeps the ride comfortable thanks to its supportive and cushioned seating. Your crew will have all the space they need, and younger riders can ride safely in the back via two full sets of LATCH car seat fasteners. The standard furnishings are durable for work truck duties, while you can upgrade the interior with features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather upholstery, and the Trail Special Edition’s stylish black upholstery.
The Tacoma’s onboard infotainment system and 7-inch touchscreen make accessing your features and apps a breeze. Smartphone integration for Android and Apple devices comes standard, as does satellite radio and Amazon Alexa. Standard safety equipment includes forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking.
History of the Toyota Tacoma
The modern Tacoma is the latest in a long line of vehicles as Toyota has developed their pickup design over decades of research and innovation. The endeavor began with the Model SB in Japan in 1947. This bare-bones truck was introduced to handle hard work without any bells or whistles, and was followed by the Stout in 1964. The U.S. market initially responded to the Stout’s appearance with mixed sentiment, the truck endeared itself to work-minded drivers with its lasting dependability. The Stout paved the way for Toyota to firmly establish their role in the American truck arena, and they followed up with the Hi-Lux, which paired proven power with fresh looks and enhanced comfort. The Tacoma arrived in 1995, representing Toyota’s dedication to perfecting the modern work truck.
