The New 2021 Toyota Tacoma
Nightshade Special Edition
Cruise down the street in the new Nightshade Special Edition and show off Tacoma’s dark side. Blacked-out exterior trim, dark smoke 18-in. alloy wheels, exhaust tip and exclusive grille—all add a little more mystery to your adventures.
Embossed tailgate with grade-specific taillights
Let everyone behind you know who's in charge. The tailgate features an embossed Tacoma logo that complements the rugged look.
Available LED headlights
Tacoma's available LED headlights use LED elements for both the low and high beams, giving you bright, efficient light when you need it. And since they’re bolted to the front of Tacoma, you can bet that they look awesome too.
One formidable face
With its redesigned, aggressive grille and available smoked headlight and taillight housings, Tacoma remains the best-looking truck on the trail.
Available power-adjustable seat
Take comfort to new heights. Tacoma features a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat that includes 2-way lumbar support.
A tough and refined interior
Tacoma is built to handle the demands of a hard-charging outing. Its interior features soft-touch materials to boost your comfort. And Tacoma Limited adds leather-trimmed seating surfaces for the ultimate in tough sophistication.
Dual zone automatic climate control
Standard on all V6 models, Tacoma's dual zone automatic climate control brings more comfort while you're out on the trails. Adjust the cabin temperature to your and your passenger's preferences, and the system automatically adjusts the controls to get things just right.
Power rear window
Let the outside in. Tacoma's available power sliding rear window with privacy glass opens with just the touch of a button.
Two USB charge ports
Plug in your smartphone or other compatible device to stay charged up while on the go.
Tacoma TRD Pro
Designed by the gurus at Toyota Racing Development (TRD), the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is outfitted with specially engineered parts and accessories so you can take on the world’s gnarliest terrain. It’s time to get out there and tackle your next big adventure.
3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine
High tech meets high performance. Tacoma's available Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V6 with direct injection is the perfect blend of efficiency and power, giving you more of everything you want.
Available 6-speed transmission
If rowing through the gears is more your style, Tacoma offers a 6-speed manual transmission, on certain models, to put control firmly in your hands.
6800-lb. towing capacity
Boats. Side-by-sides. Whatever toys you've got, Tacoma's got the power to bring 'em along. The powerful 3.5-liter V6 and available Tow Package help this truck tow up to 6800 lbs. or carry a payload of up to 1440 lbs. So strap it down, hitch it up and roll out—your ultimate adventure starts here.
When you're towing, sometimes the wind kicks up or a load shifts, causing the trailer to sway. Included with Tacoma's available Tow Package, Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) applies brake pressure at individual wheels and manages engine torque to help maintain control of the trailer.
Upgrade your connectivity and infotainment with Tacoma’s versatile audio multimedia system. Apple CarPlay® compatibility connects you to Apple Music®, Maps, Messages, and your other favorite apps from your iPhone®. Android Auto™ lets you plug in your Android™ smartphone to access all your favorite music and apps. All these and more, right in front of you, so you can get the most out of every drive. Screen depiction accurate at time of posting.
Almost anywhere the road takes you, Amazon Alexa connectivity follows. With a smartphone connection and the Toyota+Alexa app, all you have to do is ask Alexa to play music, hear the news, check weather, control smart-home devices and more.
SiriusXM® All Access 3-month trial
SiriusXM® is playing what you want to hear. Every Tacoma comes with an All Access 3-month trial subscription so you can try the widest variety of entertainment anywhere. Just open the app and start listening. Choose from over 200 channels, including ad-free music, plus sports, news, talk, comedy and more. Screen depiction accurate at time of posting.
Panoramic View Monitor
Get into and out of that campsite with ease. Tacoma's available Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) uses cameras on the front, sides and rear of the truck to give you a 360-degree view of what's going on outside.
The available 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) can be customized to show info such as your Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) features, current mpg, inclinometer, and available Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) settings.
Smart Key System with Push Button Start
No need to fumble for those keys. Tacoma's available Smart Key System lets you lock/unlock the driver and front-passenger side doors and start the engine—all while the Smart Key fob is tucked safely in your pocket or bag.
Electronically locking rear differential
Don’t let a patch of knee-deep sand give you the slip. Tacoma TRD Off-Road’s standard electronically controlled locking rear differential distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels so they move at the same speed, providing more grip in low-traction conditions.
When the trail gets challenging, Tacoma TRD Off-Road's Crawl Control (CRAWL) is here to help you conquer your off-road adventure. This advanced system automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings so you can keep your focus on navigating across difficult terrain.
Available Bilstein® shocks know how to keep their cool under pressure, delivering consistent performance when the going gets rough. Standard on TRD Off-Road, these shocks help soak up the impacts of the trail, thanks to high-performance components and valving tuned specifically for off-road driving.
Tacoma TRD Off-Road features Multi-Terrain Select (MTS). With five modes to choose from, this system helps regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and traction control. When combined with standard Goodyear® Wrangler® tires with tough Kevlar® construction, Multi-Terrain Select helps improve traction dramatically, meaning you can get back to the fun more quickly.
Hill Start Assist Control
Tacoma's Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) helps you safely get up those hills. This technology helps minimize Tacoma from rolling backward when you move your foot from the brake to the gas pedal, so you can move upward with confidence. (HAC not available on TRD Off-Road 4WD M/T.)
When the trail gets demanding, Tacoma's available Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM) lets you check your immediate surroundings for potential obstacles. Simply press a button to display front-, rear- and side-camera views on the 8-in. navigation screen.
Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P)
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in certain situations. Using both a camera and radar, PCS w/PD can provide an audio/visual alert to warn you of a possible collision under certain circumstances. If you don’t react, the system is designed to automatically brake.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Intended for highway use, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC is designed to function at speeds of 25-110 mph and uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, helping maintain a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you.
Lane Departure Alert
By detecting visible white/yellow lane markings at speeds above 32 mph, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) is designed to issue an audio/visual alert if an inadvertent lane departure is detected.
Automatic High Beams
The Automatic High Beams (AHB) safety system is designed to help you see more clearly at night at speeds above 25 mph. The AHB system can detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggles between high and low beams accordingly.
Toyota's available Remote Connect feature allows you to access select vehicle capabilities from your smart device. Locking and unlocking doors, starting and stopping engine, and finding and monitoring vehicle status are all possible through the Toyota app. One-year trial included.
When you enable Wi-Fi Connect, you can turn your Tacoma into a hotspot with 4G connectivity. This feature allows up to five devices to stay connected to favorite apps for work or play while conserving battery power and data for every device. Wi-Fi Connect with up to 2 GB within three-month trial.
When the unexpected occurs, Safety Connect® is ready to help. Drivers can be connected to our 24/7 response center at the touch of a button. In case of an accident or emergency, an agent can notify local emergency services to request dispatch to the vehicle's location. You also get 24/7 Roadside Assistance and Stolen Vehicle Locator to give you peace of mind that help is on the way so you can be on yours. One-year trial included.
Take the stress out of being in unfamiliar territory. Destination Assist allows you to talk to a live agent while they help you find your destination's coordinates along with directions on how to get there. One-year trial included.
Stay up-to-date with your vehicle's information, such as status and alerts, maintenance reminders and more. It's a convenient way to help make sure your Tacoma is running at its best. Ten-year trial included. Apple iPhone® shown.
TRD Pro skid plate
A unique TRD Pro skid plate comes standard on Tacoma TRD Pro. Constructed from 1/4-in.-thick aluminum, this piece of armor helps protect crucial mechanical components underneath the front end, so you can even go beyond points on the map.
Aggressive front fascia
When you got it, flaunt it. Exclusive to Tacoma TRD Pro is a set of LED headlight housings that feature an integrated, light-up TRD Pro logo. And with its iconic heritage grille, this truck reminds everyone why Toyota is still king of the off-road.
Rigid Industries LED fog lights
Engineered by TRD, these intense LED fog lights pack a lot of brightness into a compact package. Aluminum housings feature the Rigid Industries® logo, and rugged construction helps ensure that these lights can endure harsher environments. With their wide-angle beam pattern, these lights help ensure you have light when, and where, you need it.
TRD-tuned FOX® Internal Bypass shocks
This is hard-core engineering. TRD-tuned FOX® Internal Bypass shocks give you the ultimate in performance and control. Featuring 2.5-in. aluminum housings; hardened, oversize shock shafts; and remote reservoirs in the rear. These are designed to help provide more ground clearance, more travel, maximum damping and fade-free performance. In other words, this suspension helps smooth out the rough stuff.
16-in. TRD Pro wheels
Not just a pretty face, these 16-in. TRD black alloy wheels are constructed to provide an ideal balance of strength and weight savings. Each of these wheels comes wrapped in Goodyear® Wrangler® All-Terrain tires for optimal traction on- and off-road.
Trail Special Edition
Black badging, unique dark gray 16-in. TRD Off-Road wheels with Kevlar® All-Terrain tires and lockable bed storage boxes highlight the adventurous spirit of Tacoma Trail Special Edition. The driver’s-side storage box even includes insulation to double as a cooler. And inside, Black seats with unique tan stitching are always ready to raise the bar on every drive.
Composite bed w/120V outlet
Don't call it a bedliner. Tacoma's bed is composed of an ultra-durable, fiber-reinforced Sheet-Molded Composite (SMC) surface. This rugged tech boasts a greater impact strength than steel and will help keep the bed of your Tacoma looking good for years to come. An available bed-mounted 120V/400W outlet helps keep the action powered up even when you've left civilization in your dust.
Deck rail system
When the desert calls, you want to bring your gear along for the ride. That's why Tacoma's bed comes standard with an innovative deck rail system. With four heavy-duty adjustable tie-down cleats, you've got the strength and adjustability you need to keep your cargo securely strapped down.
With various hidden, locking storage areas, Tacoma keeps your gear out of the way, out of sight and ready for your next outing.
No cost maintenance plan and Roadside Assistance
Every new Toyota comes with ToyotaCare, a maintenance plan that covers normal factory scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, and 24-hour Roadside Assistance for 2 years, unlimited mileage.
Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
When Tacoma's available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate outside mirror to alert you to the presence of the vehicle, helping you to determine when it's safe to change lanes. And when you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) provides an audible indicator to warn you of approaching vehicles.
Integrated backup camera with rear parking sonar
When backing up on a trail—or just backing out of your driveway—you need to see what’s behind you. The standard backup camera mounted in Tacoma’s tailgate handle helps you see an image of what the camera detects behind you on the available 7-in. high-resolution display.
Star Safety System™
Every Tacoma comes standard with our Star Safety System™, an advanced integration of safety technologies including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology (SST).
