What's New For the 2021 Toyota Tacoma?

Toyota adds two new options packages to the Tacoma lineup for the 2021 model year: the Trail and Nightshade special edition packages. You can get standard Toyota Safety Sense P and a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa on all Tacomas.

What Features Are Available for 2021?

Six trims are offered on the 2021 Toyota Tacoma, SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. There are two cab choices: Access Cab and Double Cab. Each model is styled differently in the front, making it easy for you to distinguish them. The base model, SR, has a great set of features. You get several amenities with the SR, such as 16-inch wheels, a composite bed, heated exterior mirrors, a 7-inch touchscreen, and smartphone integration.

The SR5 takes it up the notch with a leather-trimmed steering wheel, an 8-inch touchscreen, and a locking/unlocking vehicle remote. Several available option packages add more safety and convenience amenities to the Tacoma lineup. Packages include a Technology (includes blind-spot monitoring with rear traffic alert, only available with the V6), Dynamic navigation (with rear parking sensors, a navigation system, and comes only with the V6), and the Trail Special Edition package (with unique trim on the seating,  all-terrain tires, 120-volt bed outlet, is available only on the Double Cab with V6).

The mid-range TRD Sport offers plenty for the price. With the TRD Sport, the V6 engine is standard; you get heated mirrors, a sport-tuned suspension, body-colored fender flares, and rear bumper, and a wireless charging pad. Available packages include the Technology (rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert), Premium Audio and Dynamic Navigation (JBL premium audio system, navigation system), Premium Sport (include heated front seats, sunroof, and leather upholstery), and Advanced Technology (a 360-degree camera system) packages.

The TRD Off-Road gets you Bilstein shocks, an electronic locking rear differential, and textured black fender flares. The available options packages for this trim are the same as for the TRD Sport. If you opt for the Limited model, leather upholstery greets you inside; there are 18-inch alloy wheels and a silver grille. This trim also includes a navigation system and a premium JBL audio system. The newest options package, the Nightshade Special Edition (includes black exterior styling elements and wheels), is available on the Limited trim.

The top trim is TRD Pro, which adds to TRD Off-Road features list includes LED headlights, a multi-terrain monitor, sunroof, black grille, which is an off-road camera system, leather upholstery, and 16-inch black-painted TRD wheels with all-terrain tires.

How Well Does the 2021 Tacoma Perform?

The standard engine for the Tacoma in the lower trim levels is a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine that achieves 159 horsepower. You can upgrade to the 3.5-liter V6 that provides 278 horsepower and increases your towing capacity. You can enjoy a little bit more performance and control if you are comfortable with the manual transmission. The TRD Pro Edition comes with an updated suspension and shock absorbers.

Toyota Tacoma Safety at the Forefront

Some of the standard safety features included in the Tacoma are forward-collision monitoring technology that will warn you of a vehicle in front of you that you're approaching too quickly, automated emergency braking if you don't react soon enough, and lane departure warning if you're drifting outside of your designated lane. Adaptive cruise control will automatically alter your speed for you if you're approaching any other vehicles on the road while using your set speed.
