Toyota Tacoma Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 Tacoma Interior

Few people buy a pickup truck for its luxurious cabin, and if you are one of those select few, then the Tacoma is not the right choice for you. Styling is plain and the materials used are hardy but not high-class. Leather is available at the upper trim levels, but it is for the seats only, leaving the plastic dash and door panels to fend for themselves. An electrically adjustable driver's seat on most models makes it easy to find a good driving position, and the controls for the features are laid out for ease of access. There aren't that many to worry about, though, although the infotainment suite has all the essentials.

Seating and Interior Space

Though it may come fitted with seating for five, the Tacoma is not an ideal family hauler. Legroom is especially tight in the back, with as little as 24.6 inches in the Access Cab. This is improved when you choose the Double Cab since it offers 32.6 inches of legroom, although it still doesn't qualify as spacious. Headroom follows the same pattern, but it's actually quite good in the back of the Double Cab. Regardless, those up front are definitely the most comfortable, with space to spare, and a ten-way power driver's seat on most versions makes it much easier to find a comfortable position, although taller individuals will still struggle a bit. On the plus side, the seats are comfortable, which helps to offset some of the discomfort of driving on tarred roads.

Interior Colors and Materials

If you want anything better than cloth upholstery, you'll have to upgrade to at least the Limited trim. On the SR, you get Cement Gray cloth only and black cloth with red accent stitching is added as a choice on the SR5. In the Trail Special Edition, the standard black fabric gets unique tan contrast stitching. The TRD Sport and Off-Road each get Cement/Black combination fabric, while the latter can be specified with black leather if you are willing to cough up an extra $5,070 for LED head- and foglights, as well as the Premium and Technology packages. Once you reach the Limited level, Hickory leather becomes standard, with black available too. Unlike last year, the black leather is no longer restricted to certain paint colors unless you specify additional packages. The top-of-the-line TRD Pro gets the highest quality black leather with TRD Pro logos on the headrests and red accent stitching. As for the rest of the cabin, hard plastic is present throughout, showing the rugged durability of the Tacoma. True to this philosophy, construction is solid.

2023 Tacoma Trunk and Cargo Space

How much cargo space you have all depends on the bed length you choose when configuring your truck. Measurements for the five-foot bed are 60.5 inches lengthwise, 41.5 inches in width, and 19.1 inches high. The longer six-foot bed adds an extra 13.2 inches of length. In either setup, you get access to loads of space, but exactly how much you can carry will depend on the specific payload capacity of the configuration you select. Here, you have to trade power and capability for GVWR, as some 4x4 Double Cab options only allow for a payload of up to 1,095 lbs, while the 4x2 Access Cab increases this to 1,685 lbs. The Trail Special Edition has lockable bed storage on either side, with the driver's side insulated, so it can be used as a cooler.

Around the cabin, there are not a lot of storage options. A few bins around the center console and some narrow door pockets can hold the smallest of items. But, if you want to stow anything larger, your only option is the glove compartment or the center armrest cubby.

2023 Tacoma Infotainment and Features


The Tacoma is no luxury cruiser, but you get all the basics, even on the entry-level SR. These include air-conditioning (dual-zone climate control on V6s), power accessories, and a small 4.2-inch color driver-information display. The tilt/telescopic steering column is manually adjustable, though. A rearview camera complements the Toyota Safety Sense P suite, which comprises pre-collision avoidance, pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control. Keyless entry and a leather-trimmed steering wheel are added to the SR5. Upgrading to the V6 engine on this trim adds a power driver's seat and further opting for the automatic transmission on the V6 also adds push-button start and dual-zone climate control.

The Trail Edition is an automatic V6 only and its standard features are the same as the SR5 V6 automatic, save for its trim-specific differences. TRD Sport expands the SR5 offering but gets the V6 only and comes with a leather-trimmed shift lever, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, wireless charging, and a 120-volt power outlet. Like the SR5, the push-button start and dual-zone climate control are bundled with the automatic transmission. The Limited and TRD Pro are the most extensively outfitted, with leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power moonroof, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and rear sonar. The Limited adds a surround-view camera and the TRD Pro adds an off-road camera system.


The infotainment suite starts off with a seven-inch touchscreen on the SR, programmed with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth streaming, Wi-Fi, and Amazon Alexa. This is paired with a six-speaker sound system with access to SiriusXM. Upgrading to the SR5 increases the size of the screen to eight inches, while the Limited adds navigation, and upgrades the sound system to a six-speaker JBL unit. From the TRD Sport upwards, a wireless charging pad is standard. The TRD Pro offers all the same features but sticks with the standard audio setup, unless you opt for the automatic version, in which case the JBL sound system is included. Despite coming equipped with loads of modern features, the suite feels as old as the Tacoma, with slow responses and clumsy menus.
