The 2017 Toyota Tacoma, like a lot of trucks, has a wide price range, with six trims covering $25,315 to $43,920 ($960 destination fee included). Because of the additional creature comforts it offers over the base SR trim, we expect the SR5 trim to be the most common among buyers. This trim comes standard with:
- Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming
- Variable intermittent windshield wipers
- Chrome bumper and a chrome-accented grille
- 15-inch steel wheels
- Keyless entry
- Leather-wrapped steering wheel
- Entune Audio Plus infotainment system with Scout Navigation Link and Siri Eyes Free
- Six-speaker audio system with SiriusXM
Buyers looking to make the SR5 a little more stylish can add the SR5 Appearance Package ($685), which includes 16-inch alloy wheels and color-keyed overfenders. There is also a wide range of standalone options, like the 5-inch chrome oval tube steps ($535), cast-aluminum running boards ($795), and all-weather floor liners and doorsill protectors ($209).
Buyers looking for something with a little more off-road cred can go with the TRD Off-Road model, which runs from $33,970 to $40,960 ($960 destination fee included) and adds a terrain selector, crawl control, and an off-road suspension that allows for more wheel articulation.
There are just two engines available in the 2017 Tacoma. The standard powerplant is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder that produces a modest 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The optional engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that pumps in 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. This engine can mate with one of two six-speed transmissions: a manual or an automatic. Both engines are also available with rear- or four-wheel drive.
