2019 Toyota Tacoma OVERVIEW

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma continues to shine in the mid-size pickup segment. Starting at $26,595 (all prices include the $1,045 destination charge), the latest Tacoma is available in six trims and a total of 32 unique configurations. The Tacoma’s towing capacity and breadth of packages permit all consumers to assemble a Tacoma to fit their budget, desires, and needs with little hassle.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma is mainly unchanged. There are a few additions including two more USB ports in the center console and privacy glass. A new SX Package gives consumers a black-out theme on select Access Cab models.

Choosing Your Toyota Tacoma

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma offers three unique powertrain combinations – two paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and one with a manual six-speed. The base powerplant is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The second option is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 278 hp and 265 pound-feet of torque. Consumers who select lower grades (such as the base SR) can upgrade to the V6 with two-wheel drive for $4,775 over the base price, while the same engine and four-wheel drive can be added for $7,440 over the starting price.

One of the best attributes of the Tacoma is towing capacity. Those looking to take advantage of this feature will start with a V6 engine that includes a Class IV towing hitch, engine and transmission cooler, and a towing capacity of 6,800 pounds. The four-cylinder, rear-wheel-drive Tacoma returns an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, and 21 combined. Adding all-wheel-drive drops those figures to 19/22/20 mpg (city/highway/combined). The V6 engine gets 19/24/21 mpg with rear-wheel drive and 18/22/20 with four-wheel drive.

There are six trims for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma:


The 2019 Toyota Tacoma SR is available at a starting price of $26,595. Consumers can configure their SR with an access cab with a six-foot bed, or a double cab (or four-door) with a five-foot bed for $2,545 extra. If cargo space is important for you, the access cab with folding rear seats is the best bet. The SR comes with 16-inch wheels, fabric trim, a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, three USB ports, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera as standard.

Consumers can add a few packages that will customize their SR for their application. The Utility Package actually saves consumers $1,715 and removes the rear seats, cup holders, and other rear-cab options (in the 4-cylinder Access cab), while adding black door handles, mirror caps, bumpers, and a fixed rear window. A $230 SR Convenience Package adds a keyless entry system, while the SX Package ($570) upgrades to black alloy wheels, headlights, over-fender guards, door handles, and mirror caps. On models with the double cab, a Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover with Options package ($880) brings keyless entry and the tonneau cover.


The SR5 begins at $31,445 with the four-cylinder engine with four-wheel-drive and access cab with the six-foot bed. It starts where the SR leaves off with a few additional cab/bed/powertrain configurations. Consumers can add the double cab with either the five-foot bed (for $880 extra) or six-foot bed (for an additional $1,380). The SR5 is standard with the four-cylinder engine but buyers can upgrade to the 3.5-liter V6 with two- or four-wheel drive. The SR5 includes fog lights, navigation, a power-sliding rear window, keyless entry, a chrome rear bumper, and an upgraded 4.2-inch touchscreen infotainment display.

The SR5 Appearance Package (for the four-cylinder only) adds silver alloy wheels and over-fenders for $685 extra. With the V6 engine and two-wheel drive, a SR5 Parking Sonar and Navigation Package with options ($775) adds an Entune premium audio system and rear parking assist sonar. With the double cab and five-foot bed, the hard tri-fold tonneau cover is available for $650, while the SR5 Parking Sonar and Navigation Package now costs $1,425 because it also brings the tonneau cover.

TRD Sport

The TRD Sport is where the Tacoma begins to grow up. Starting at $33,290 with the access cab, six-foot bed, V6 engine, and two-wheel drive, the TRD Sport has 17-inch machined alloy wheels, Qi-Compatible wireless charging, a power tilt and slide moonroof, LED daytime running lights, a composite liner with a 120-volt power outlet, and a color-keyed hood scoop. Consumers can opt for a six-speed manual transmission with the V6 and four-wheel drive.

The Technology Package with Options ($1,510) brings dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, automatic headlights, rear parking assist sonar, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. With the double cab, the Technology Package drops to $800 and only includes the active safety features. With the double cab and six-foot bed, a Premium Package with Options ($3,690) all of the features from the Technology Package with Options and adds leather-trimmed seats, a premium audio system, navigation, and a moonroof. The same package is available with the tonneau cover for $4,340.

TRD Off-Road

Starting at $36,575, the TRD Off-Road is only offered with the V6 and automatic transmission with four-wheel drive. It takes a more aggressive stance and offers consumers more bang for their off-road inspired buck. The TRD Off-Road picks up where the TRD Pro leaves off and adds the smart key system with push-button start, the Entune premium audio system with an integrated navigation system, electronically locking rear differential, and a multi-terrain select system with a CRAWL control feature.

There are multiple package options available with the TRD Off-Road with the double cab: the tonneau cover ($650), Premium Package ($2,890), Premium Package with Options ($3,660), and Premium Package with Options and the tonneau cover ($4,310).


The Limited trim is where comfort is enhanced. The Limited starts at $41,610 and is only offered with the double-cab, five-foot bed, V6 engine, and four-wheel drive. It includes a power moonroof, leather-trimmed seating, front dual-zone automatic climate control, a Premium JBL audio system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, 18-inch polished alloy wheels as standard. The only package option for the Limited is the addition of a hard-top tonneau cover, which will add $650 to the bill.


Starting at $46,410, the Tacoma TRD Pro is the range-topper that's also only available with the V6, four-wheel drive, double cab, and five-foot bed. The TRD Pro includes upgraded TRD badging throughout the truck, performance shocks, an exhaust system, front skid plates, and other TRD goodies. For those looking for an upgrade, a $725 desert air intake package can be added.

CarsDirect Tip

Choosing a 2019 Toyota Tacoma really breaks down to personal preference. Each trim and configuration offers something unique for consumers to consider. However, those in cold-weather climates should opt for a four-wheel drive in any trim level for added traction on wet and icy roads.
