Engine Power and Traction Control
The two types of engines available in the Toyota Tacoma
can fit the type of performance you’re after.
An i-FORCE turbocharged 2.4L 4-cylinder engine produces 278 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque to get you going, morning, noon, and night. If you’re looking for more horsepower, go for the available i-FORCE MAX hybrid engine. It produces a combined net 326 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque.
To customize your performance, the Tacoma provides a versatile 8-speed automatic transmission. This can help you traverse adverse conditions and other roads that may need a special type of gear. For more control, you may be interested in swapping the standard transmission for the optional 6-speed manual transmission.
Pick your drivetrain between rear-wheel drive (RWD) and 4-wheel drive (4x4) for the Tacoma. The RWD system comes with an automatic limited-slip differential, which keeps your wheels from spinning out on uneven surfaces.
For 4WD models, you’ll receive an electronically controlled 2-speed transfer case. It offers a high/low range as well as Active Traction Control and an automatic limited-slip differential. You’ll feel that you can depend on your truck to stay steady, even in the most slippery conditions.
If you add the Multi-Terrain Select system with CRAWL Control, you’ll amplify your ability to cover any terrain. It features Mud, Dirt, and Sand modes to accommodate more rugged driving.
