Changes with the 2019 Tacoma

The 2019 Tacoma doesn't offer a slew of substantial changes, but what it does add makes the exciting compact truck even better for owners. Bilstein Shocks and a Multi-Information Display are new features that are available for drivers interested in upgrading to higher trims. The Lane Departure Alert system has been updated for greater efficiency, which is good news for all buyers. Lastly, there is a new SX Appearance Package, as well as a new Desert Air Intake for the TRD Pro model.

Engine Performance and Towing Capacity

Though the compact pickup isn't intended for a high-performance, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is an exciting truck to drive. The standard Tacoma engine is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, which is capable of producing 159-horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. If you're in need of more power and torque from your Tacoma, then look no further than the available 3.5-liter V-6 engine - a powertrain with a more impressive output of 278-horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque.

While it isn't meant for heavy-duty towing, the Tacoma can provide its owners with a consistent towing capacity, good for a variety of uses. The 2019 Tacoma truck has a towing capacity of 6,800 pounds when properly-equipped, which is perfect for traveling with camping trailers, dirt bikes, and ATVs. Beyond its towing ability, the Tacoma can also transport up to 1,440 pounds in payload; ideal for easy moving or equipment hauling.


Available Trim Levels and Configurations

The 2019 Tacoma sticks with the same six trim levels as its predecessors, ranging from the SR and SR5 to the TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. Interested buyers have the choice between three caboose lengths - Regular, Long, and Short - as well as the Access and Double Cab styles. In addition to the engines and packages available for your consideration, the Tacoma is easily capable of offering a great amount of customization for your specific lifestyle needs.

If you're interested in hitting the trails, then the TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Pro are Tacoma trucks built perfect for you. Fully equipped to tackle any and all terrain that stands in your way, these outfitted models have set a new standard for Toyota off-road performance - making it a great choice for Vermont roads.
