The Toyota Tacoma’s six available trim lines forms a small part in the model’s ability to be configured in 33 different ways, including two body styles, two bed lengths, two engines, two transmissions, and two drivetrain systems. The SR kicks off the line-up with 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cloth upholstery, and a default 2.7-liter engine with rear-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. Toyota Safety Sense is standard from the base trim. The SR5 improves the specification with chrome detailing, remote keyless entry, an enhanced Entune audio system, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
From there, the TRD Sport equips a range of exterior enhancements and is standard with a 3.5-liter V6, with the option of a manual gearbox. Standard features include 17-inch wheels, wireless device charging, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The TRD Off-Road is similarly equipped, but with more rugged styling, a lockable rear diff, Bilstein shocks, and a model-specific traction control system. If luxury is what you’re after, the Limited trim is only available as a Double Cab 4WD V6 model, fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and an upgraded sound system, as well as blind spot monitoring and rear park sensors. At the top of the range, the TRD Pro is the Raptor to the Tacoma line-up, with FOX internal bypass shocks, all-terrain tires, a thicker front skid plate, and aggressive styling.
Pricing for the Tacoma spans a broad range, with the SR Access Cab 4x2 carrying a base MSRP of $25,850 before tax, registration, licensing, and a $1,095 destination fee. The SR5 starts off at $27,625 while upgrading to the TRD Sport sees you spend at least $32,545 in base Access Cab format. The TRD Off-Road is priced from $36,765 in the USA, while the Limited - available exclusively as a Double Cab, starts at $37,790. The range-topping TRD Pro derivative is priced from $42,960, representing an almost $20,000 range from the bottom to the top of the Tacoma line-up. Upgrading from Access Cab to Double Cab on the SR costs you $830, but higher up the trim levels this difference increases, while engine and drivetrain options also add to the price.
In addition to the six comprehensive trims and their various configurations, Toyota offers a range of optional accessories, extras, and options packages for further customization. TRD accessories give visual enhancement for a rugged aesthetic, while style accessories include running boards and chrome detailing.
Package-wise, the SR can be equipped with a $230 Convenience Package adding keyless entry. Meanwhile, V6-equipped SR5 derivatives can be optioned with a $775 package equipping park sensors, black alloy wheels, and premium audio with navigation.
Only from the TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road does the package offering become substantial, with both availing themselves to four packages. The $770 Technology Package adds park sensors, blind spot assist, and rear cross-traffic alert, while the $1,420 Technology Pack with options adds to this a tri-fold tonneau cover. The $3,660 Premium Package equips dual-zone climate control, leather-trimmed seats with heated front seats, a premium Entune and JBl infotainment system, automatic headlights, and a moonroof, as well as all the Technology features. At $4310, the Premium Package with options adds the tonneau cover as well. All of this equipment, with the exception of the tonneau cover, is standard on the Limited trim. The tonneau is, however, available for $650.
Available exclusively on the TRD Pro is a Desert Air Intake Package at $725, which equips a TRD snorkel air intake.
We generally liked the look of our 2019 Tacoma TRD Sport but it is thetop TRD Pro trim that caught our eye. The as-test price of our TRD Sport was $42,430, putting it dangerously close to the starting price of the TRD Pro. Toyota is having trouble keeping the TRD Pro models in stock and just looking at them, it's not hard to see why. Some dealers have even resorted to marking them up, proving Toyota left some value on the table.
