Along with other models in the class, 2021 Toyota Tacoma comes as redesigned and fully updated model. This is great news, thus, long-expected for this model. Used to be part of the large vehicle class, Tacoma has always been a large and highly attractive model, but still not much modern as we used to see on models in the class.
The manufacturer has always prepared the model for the rough terrain and off-road driving, with possible heavy load towing, so we should expect changes in those boundaries. However, it does not mean that they have not changed anything in this model. There are attractive details there, too.
- The model is large and highly impressive in off-road driving.
- The cabin is well equipped with many novelties in the safety program.
Since 2021 Toyota Tacoma has no plan to be an attractive modern family car, but a more heavy-duty truck with off-road driving options, we should not expect much modern and attractive design on it. It should have a similar front end and grille as on previous models, with only a few changes in details and the grille. It is even more cubic than Ford Ranger has.
The rear end is even more cubic as we used to see, and offers a high but robust shape of the chassis. You will not see that much chrome as on GMC Canyon, though. The only that we should expect as change is a new color pallet, even it is not gone further than commonly used brown or gray for these trucks.
Although the cabin has not undergone impressive changes in design, the equipment that comes with 2021 Toyota Tacoma is way above the average. It includes great existing devices that we already saw on it, while the manufacturer has offered many novelties as well. The manufacturer has offered phone connection as before, with a 7-inch or optional 8-inch touchscreen as a controlling panel for all technology.
Two digital cameras should be able to help drivers in driving, while there are great improvements in driving assistant and pre-collision controlling functions. We know that Chevrolet Colorado has much better design and comfort in the cabin, but there are no many models that offer this safety system as Tacoma. Along with all the above, it has a brand new walking Recognition program that saves walkers.
There are the same engines that 2021 Toyota Tacoma gets as before. The first model is the 2.7-liter petrol model with 159 horsepower while the stronger option is with 3.5-liter V6 that produces 275 horsepower. This engine is not only strong but also very fast, which is not expected for large models like this. According to the official, it could increase the speed of 60 mph for only 7.7 seconds. Both engines come with six-speed automatic transmission and towing capacity is around 6,800.
2021 Toyota Tacoma Release Date and Price
Despite all changes and upgrades, the price for 2021 Toyota Tacoma is still in the same range as for other models in the class. The base price of $26,000 is not that high for the class. It could increase up to $42,000 with all equipment and additions. The manufacturer is especially proud of the TRD Expert Design trim version. However, if any of these is appealing to you, be patient to the end of 2020 when is expected that the model will be on the market.
