2022 Toyota Tacoma Exterior and Dimensions

Toyota Tacoma Exterior Design Rating

2022 Tacoma Exterior

The exact appearance of the Tacoma depends on how you configure it, since you can mix and match the cab and cargo bed options. The Access Cab supplies two doors, while the Double Cab tacks on an extra pair of doors at the back. The SR and SR5 have pretty basic grilles, while the TRD Sport and Off-Road get honeycomb grilles. The Limited gets a silver horizontal bar grille, while the TRD Pro boasts the most aggressive Toyota heritage grille with the TOYOTA lettering replacing the logo found on lesser models. It also gets a TRD Pro front skid plate and a hood scoop with a choice of special graphics - some new this year.

The blocky headlights are the same across the range, but they upgrade from standard halogen to LEDs on the Limited upwards, and every model aside from the base SR comes equipped with fog lights. Two special editions have been available since last year, with the Trail Edition borrowing the same grille as the Limited but with bronze TOYOTA lettering. The standard wheels are 16-inch items across the lineup in various styles, while the TRD Sport gets 17-inch items and the Limited gets larger 18-inch wheels. The Nightshade package features blacked-out exterior accents as the name implies. The TRD Pro and Trail Edition get the same style of TRD 16-inch alloy wheel, but the former's are painted black and the latter's are bronze. The top-tier trims also sport a power tilt-and-slide moonroof.

As you'd expect from a pickup truck that spends much of its time playing in the mud, the Tacoma has the kind of dimensions that really make it stand out. If you pair the Access Cab with the six-foot bed, you will get a 127.4-inch wheelbase within a 212.3-inch body. The Double Cab with the five-foot bed shares these dimensions, but the Double Cab with the six-foot bed measures 225.5 inches long with a 140.6-inch wheelbase. The lower trim levels have a width of 74.4 inches, but once you upgrade to the TRD Sport, an extra 0.8 inches are added. Similarly, each model stands 70.6 inches tall, except for the Trail Edition and TRD Pro, which are around one to two inches taller than the rest. In its most basic of guises, the Tacoma tips the scales at 3,915 pounds, while weight increases to 4,550 lbs on the heftiest guise.

To help it handle rougher terrain, the Toyota pickup boasts a ground clearance of 9.4 inches, but specific configurations alter the approach/breakover/departure angles. This ranges from 29/20/23.1 degrees up to 35/24/23.5 degrees on the normal models. The two special editions' figures differ; the Trail Edition's figures are 34/26.4/23.6 degrees and the TRD Pro is the best of the lot with 36.4/26.6/24.7 degrees.

Exterior Colors

Although there have been some changes to the palette, the Tacoma can be dressed in one of ten colors. The base-level SR offers Super White, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic, Barcelona Red Metallic, and Celestial Silver Metallic - the latter replacing last year's Silver Sky Metallic. This is expanded with Blue Crush Metallic on the SR5 - replacing last year's Voodoo Blue. The TRD Sport also gets Army Green, the $425 Wind Chill Pearl, or Lunar Rock - a new color. The Cement hue is no longer offered. Most of the colors available on the TRD Off-Road require upgrading to the Technology Package for an additional $1,255. The Nightshade Special Edition Package palette comprises Midnight Black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, or Wind Chill Pearl, again for $425. The Limited and TRD Pro refine their palettes to more limited choices - although the choice of interior color does affect the availability of exterior shades - but the top-tier trim does get access to the new Lunar Rock hue, along with the Trail Edition. Besides Lunar Rock, the Trail Edition is also available in Army Green, Midnight Black, and Super White. The TRD Pro's palette consists of Super White, Magnetic Gray, Midnight Metallic, and Electric Lime - a brand-new metallic lime-green color exclusive to this trim.
