What's New for the 2018 Toyota Tacoma?

With many mid-sized pickups on the market today, truck buyers may have trouble narrowing down the options. One of the more popular vehicles in 2017 was the Toyota Tacoma. In fact, this was the best-selling model last year. Toyota regularly makes changes to its body styles and features, but it has not taken away from the success of the 2017 model. The undeniably powerful exterior body style and thoughtful interior design remain untouched from the 2017 model. With 30 possible configurations between the six trim levels, different engine types and single or double cabs, it is easy to find a great Tacoma that meets your specific needs.

Toyota did make one important and highly beneficial upgrade to the 2018 model. All of the new Tacoma trucks are now better equipped from a safety standpoint. The new Safety Sense P feature boasts innovation through enhancements like radar cruise control, sway warning detection, automatic high beams, pedestrian alert with a pre-collision warning feature, lane departure and more.

Horsepower

2018 Toyota TacomaWhile the exterior look of your new truck and the features in the vehicle are both important matters to focus on, the issue of horsepower and performance are critical as well. Truck buyers understandably are intent on finding a vehicle that meets their needs for acceleration, handling and towing capabilities. Most of the 2018 trims are available in your choice of a four-cylinder engine or a six-cylinder engine. Both types run off of regular gas. The four-cylinder delivers ample power for many needs with 159 horsepower and 180 foot-pounds in torque. The six-cylinder is ideal for those who need more power for towing or other needs. It gives you 278 foot-pounds in torque and 279 horsepower. Other mechanical features should also be considered when looking for a new truck to buy. The 2018 Tacoma has excellent mechanical features, including those for traction and stability. All trims also come with a front independent suspension and a four-wheel drive automatic transmission with six speeds. For both engine types, other related features included are a four-wheel and six-speed automatic transmission, a front suspension with independent design, enhancements for traction and stability and other features.
