2018 Toyota Tacoma at Kim's Toyota

There is a lot to like about the mid-size Toyota Tacoma in 2018, and adding to that list is not only some newer Grille treatments and exterior colors but also the addition of (now standard) active safety features via Toyota Safety Sense-P. It has models specifically geared for off-road duties, can be rear- or four-wheel drive, and has dual engine possibilities. A 5-speed manual transmission is no longer an option in 2018, but there is still a 6-speed manual to be had. There are helpful variations for the cab size, and 2 choices for truckbed length. TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and Limited trims are now possible to obtain with a great-looking Cement exterior color. All this with a quiet cabin, comfortable seats, and Toyota-grade reliable interiors, you won't have any regrets looking further into this one!

Does the 2018 Toyota Tacoma has several options for powertrains?

The 2018 Toyota Tacoma arrives standard 2.7L I-4 (159-hp / 180 lb-ft of torque) with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Or there is a 3.5L V-6 (278 hp / 268 lb-ft of torque) available for certain models that are paired either with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. This truck is able to tow, depending on configuration and equipment between 3500- and 6,800-lbs. The 2018 Toyota Tacoma can haul up to 1,620 pounds when fittingly furnished to do so. The V-6 engine really shines when it comes to tasks like steep grade driving, towing, and off-roading. The 4x4 versions excel with their focus on features like resilient shocks, a super-durable suspension, skid plates, and a locking rear differential.

What are some general design features of this vehicle?

There are six models of this vehicle, all with a more narrow focus than the last, but all will fit the owner appropriately when selected with some forethought. The Models are the SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. You will see either a 4-seat Access Cab or a 5-seat Double Cab and then a corresponding 5- or 6-foot bed. Standard features in 2018 are represented by many items, contingent upon model and configuration, but can include: 16" steel wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry/start, a wireless phone charger, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, a 7.0" touchscreen for the Entune infotainment system, Siri Eyes Free, a JBL premium audio system, a 4.2" multi-info display, leather upholstery, alloy wheels, heated front seats, 18" alloy wheels, a moonroof, power-adjustable front seats, and parking sensors. A protective bedliner is unnecessary with Toyota's rough-and-tumble composite truckbed material, so no worries there. The Tacoma's features list has a lot to like, including the fact that it is the lone truck available that provides for a built-in GoPro camera mount, which makes it easy to go record the fun while off-roading! The Tacoma TRD Pro comes in hard with standard Fox shocks, a TRD exhaust, Rigid Industries LED fog lights, a TRD Pro skid plate, a stand-apart grille with a historic Toyota badge influence, a hood scoop, and TRD Pro 16" alloy wheels as the core inside all-terrain tires.

Is safety incorporated into the 2018 Toyota Tacoma well?

Yes, and it recently earned 5 out of 5 stars in the NHTSA's side crash test. Toyota Safety Sense-P brings a welcome array of safety tech, such as forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. Blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert is purchasable within the TRD Sport and higher model levels. The Tacoma has two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors, and a rigid body structure, so all of that dove-tails nicely together to make a very safe truck.
