The Tacoma comes with a variety of different configurations under the hood, allowing you to find the perfect performance for what you need along with a solid fuel economy to match. Below, we have broken them down, making it easy for you to choose the right one for your commutes.
The first engine available for the Tacoma is the 2.7L 4-cylinder. This is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and generates 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque for a smooth and robust drive. You also have the choice of 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain system.
