The Toyota Tacoma has been a popular choice for drivers looking for a capable truck that can go off-road with ease. Despite being a compact truck, it’s got impressive towing ability and payload capacity.

Performance and Interior Features
Toyota offers the Tacoma with two engine choices. The first is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes standard in the SR and SR5 trims. The other engine is a 3.5-liter V6 with 278 horsepower and
265 lb-ft of torque.
Toyota is the last automaker to offer a compact truck with a six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed automatic. The truck comes standard with rear-wheel drive, and buyers can add all-wheel drive.
The fuel economy varies based on the engine choice. The four-cylinder engine gets an EPA-estimated 20/23, while the V6 gets 19/24 MPG.
The Tacoma comes in six trims with several standard safety and entertainment features. The base trim is the SR, and it features technology like a 7.0-inch touchscreen that is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. It has standard safety features
like Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Departure Warning.
Other higher-level trims have features like a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging, and LED fog lights. Buyers who want to use their Tacoma for off-roading should choose the TRD Off-Road with features like a locking rear differential and Bilstein
Capacity and Towing Specs
The Tacoma comes in two cab styles: the Access Cab with room for four and the Double Cab with seats for five. The Access Cab has rear-hinged doors with a half-size rear. The Double Cab has full-size rear doors with front-hinged doors.
Tacoma also comes with the Access Cab 6-foot-1-inch bed or the Double Cab with a long bed or a shorter 5-foot bed. For convenience, the bed has composite inner walls, a removable tailgate, and a bed rail system with tie-downs.
The Toyota Tacoma towing capacity varies based on the configuration and the engine. The maximum towing capacity is 6,800 pounds, which only comes on the SR, SR5, or TRD Sport trim with the Access Cab and V6 engine. To achieve the maximum, the
truck also needs rear-wheel drive and the Tow Package. The Toyota Tacoma payload capacity reaches 1,525 pounds with the same configuration.
Buyers who choose a 2022 model year Tacoma with a four-cylinder engine can tow about 3,500 pounds. However, the payload capacity increases to 1,685 pounds with a four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive.
