Let’s light it up. Standard projector-beam headlights shine brightly, helping you get a better nighttime view of the road ahead.
The easy lower tailgate opens smoothly, is easily removed when needed and can be locked to help keep your gear secure.
Smoked taillights give TRD Off-Road and TRD Sport a bold touch. And on Limited, these lights feature clear lenses to add just the right amount of sophistication.
Open up to the elements. An available power moonroof helps bring the outside in, giving you everything from a cool breeze to an epic view of the stars.
The available 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) can be customized to show info like your Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) features, current mpg, inclinometer, and available Multi-terrain Select setting.
Under certain circumstances, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Sway Warning System (SWS) is designed to detect lane departure on roads with visible lane markings. LDA only activates when you’re traveling at a speed of 32 mph or faster. When you hear and see the alert, after carefully checking the road around you, you should safely direct your vehicle back to the center of your lane.
Automatic High Beams (AHB) are a safety system designed to help you see more clearly at night — without distracting other drivers. Designed to activate at speeds above 25 mph, AHB rely on an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggle between high and low beams accordingly to provide the appropriate amount of light. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.
Using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you, the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) can help you mitigate or avoid a potential collision. If the system determines that a frontal collision is likely, it prompts you to take action using audio and visual alerts. If you notice the potential collision and apply the brakes, PCS w/PD may apply additional force using Brake Assist (BA). If you don’t brake in time, it may automatically apply the brakes to reduce your speed, helping to minimize the likelihood of a frontal collision or reduce its severity.
Intended for highway use and similar to “constant speed” cruise control, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which adjusts your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera designed to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC will automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes are applied. When there’s no longer a vehicle driving slower than your set speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate to the preset speed.
Plug in your smartphone or other compatible device to stay charged up while on the go.
When backing up on a trail — or just backing out of your driveway — you need to see what’s behind you. The standard backup camera, mounted in the tailgate handle, helps you see an image of what the camera detects behind you on the audio display.
Let the outside in. Tacoma’s available power sliding rear window with privacy glass opens with just the touch of a button.
Tacoma's available 3.5-liter DOHC V6 direct-injection Atkinson-cycle engine gives you more of everything you want. It's got 278 hp and 265 lb.-ft of torque, giving you the muscle you need to tow, haul and run the dunes. It's also more efficient, helping the engine get better mpg too.
Available Bilstein® shocks know how to keep their control under pressure, delivering consistent performance when the going get rough. Standard on TRD Off-Road, these shocks help soak up the impacts of the trail, thanks to high-performance components and valving tuned specifically for off-road driving.
