Tough Truck – The Toyota Built with a Purpose

The midsize truck market has had an influx of impressive models from various brands that have been added to the mix to give us the selection we want. Even with the changes that have taken place, the Toyota Tacoma continues to be one of the most impressive midsize trucks on the market. This is the tough truck you want to drive when you’re looking for a model that has variety and quality for you. There are more than thirty different configurations of the Tacoma to give you the ability to have a truck that does everything you want.

Start Affordable and Move up in the Tacoma

The base model of the Toyota Tacoma uses a 2.7-liter engine that gives you 159 horsepower which is enough to get the job done. This powertrain allows you to have the affordability and fuel mileage that you want when you get behind the wheel. Of course, you can also move up to a 3.5-liter V6 engine that has 278 horsepower to give you more power for the ride you desire. This larger engine makes it possible for you to tow up to 6,800 pounds behind the truck when you need to.

Safety Where You Want it in this Tough Truck

When you take the Toyota Tacoma out for a drive, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with the Toyota Safety Sense P package of driver aids and safety features. This means you have a set of cameras that are always scanning for obstacles or pedestrians to warn you of a potential collision. This system will also take action and automatically apply the brakes when you don’t respond in time. It’s good to know that you’ve got a vehicle that can help to keep you safe when your attention is away from the road for a few seconds.
