Engine and Transmission Options

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma has two engines on offer, either of which is perfectly capable of providing the level of performance you’d expect from this type of truck. A 2.7L four-cylinder machine comes standard, getting you 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, as well as a maximum towing capacity of 3500 pounds. Opt for the 3.5L V6 engine, and you can expect up to a robust 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, which allows for a 6800 pounds of towing capacity. A six-speed automatic transmission is paired to either engine, but you can also go with a five-speed or six-speed manual transmission, as well, depending on the configuration you select. Power can be delivered to either two wheels or all four.

Off-Road Capability

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma is a competitive performer on the road, but its off-road capabilities make it a true standout. Certain features make trekking off the road all the more possible, like the Tacoma TRD Off-Road’s Crawl Control, which automatically adjusts throttle and brakes on different settings so that you can hone your attention on maneuvering through any terrain. On the TRD Off-Road model, you also have the Multi-terrain Select feature, which adapts to accommodate different land types ahead. Otherwise, hill start assist control keeps you going upward with confidence, and an electronically locking rear differential allows engine power to be delivered evenly for enhanced grip. All systems combine to provide an unparalleled off-road experience.

Performance Features and Design

Design and equipment also play an important role in bolstering the 2017 Toyota Tacoma’s solid performance. LED fog lights enhance visibility in less than optimal conditions so you can keep your Tacoma going longer, and TRD-tuned FOX Internal Bypass shocks promise a smooth ride despite the road ahead. Furthermore, the front grille is inspired by past Toyota trucks, reflecting this new model as a performer like those in Toyota’s history. And drivers will see this performer coming – the TRD Pro trim comes equipped with a cat-back exhaust that not only announces your arrival, but also boosts efficiency.
