Performance Features & Engine Specs

To get started we’ll head right to the heart of the Tacoma: the engine.

Under the hood you’ll find the standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine, which puts out 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque capability. For a bit more oomph, there’s also an available 3.5L V6 engine, which will get you up to 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.

You can pair your engine with the standard 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i,) or the fun-to-drive available 6-speed manual transmission.

With all that power you’ll have the ability to tow up to 6,800 pounds when properly equipped, which means you can easily haul your boat down to the lake, your camper to the woods, or even hook up a trailer for your next move.

A rear-wheel drive system comes standard, but for advanced stability and traction control, be sure to ask about the available 4WDemand part-time 4WD with electronically controlled transfer case and Automatic Limited-Slip Differential system.

Driver-Assistant Safety Features

The 2021 Toyota Tacoma comes equipped with the standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P system, which includes four driver-assistant features designed to act as a second set of eyes on the road:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

This feature helps you avoid or mitigate frontal collisions by monitoring the pedestrians, vehicles, and cyclists traveling ahead of you and alerting you when it senses you rapidly approaching them. It can also apply braking pressure in the event of an emergency.

  • Lane Departure Alert

You’ll stay securely in the center of your lane thanks to this feature, since it will warn you when it senses you drifting.

  • Automatic High Beams

The Automatic High Beams provide improved visibility when traveling at night by automatically toggling between low and high beams depending on your surroundings.

  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

This feature is ideal for highway commuters, as it will allow you to set your Tacoma to your preferred speed; then it will slow down or accelerate depending on the flow of traffic.
