Specifications and mechanical components of the Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma has made a mark in the midsize pickup category because of its durability and steady performance across all terrains. The mechanical components of a pickup are required to be reliable as the whole performance of the pickup is dependent on what is under the hood and beyond what’s just on the outside. The Toyota Tacoma stands out from its rivals the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, and the Honda ridgeline due to its distinguished self-centering control providing a firm yet flexible steering grip, had deep seated and well-designed interior, and excellent off-roading TRD models.

Engine
Although Toyota offers a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine as stock in its SR and SR5 Tacoma trims, Toyota also offers the special 3.5-liter V6 Atkinson-cycle engine, which generates around 278 hp and 265 lb-ft torque, is available on all the Tacoma trims.
