Trying to decide between an SUV and a pickup truck? There’s no better way to focus your decision than by comparing the 2018 Toyota Tacoma to the 2018 Toyota 4Runner. Both are at the top of their respective segments, but they differ in terms of:
Muddying the waters of comparison is the fact that both the Toyota Tacoma and the Toyota 4Runner are very capable backcountry performers, with respective TRD trims offering features designed for off-road exploration.
The 2018 Toyota Tacoma isn’t quite as speedy or agile as the 2018 Toyota 4Runner, but it tows up to 1,800 pounds more.

As a pickup truck, the Toyota Tacoma is available in multiple body configurations that affect interior and cargo dimensions, but it doesn’t offer the cabin space and versatility of the 2018 Toyota 4Runner.
What it does offer is that valuable cargo bed, which is available either five- or six-foot configurations. You can pile in up to 47 cubic feet of cargo without disrupting passengers, but the real advantage comes with its 1,620-pound payload capacity — the Toyota 4Runner isn’t rated to carry nearly as much.
By now, you should have a pretty good idea of which model speaks to you. In case you’re still scratching your head, here are the keyp oints:
2018 Toyota Tacoma: Ideal for towing and carrying heavier loads, especially cargo you don’t want in the cabin.
2018 Toyota 4Runner: An ideal family vehicle that provides added interior space and stronger comfort features.
