If you are looking for a midsize pickup that can do it all and is fun to drive, you need to check out the new 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD. It delivers unwavering capability and good looks to match. The muscular fenders and awesome hood scoop helps to show off Tacoma TRD tough truck look. This go anywhere truck comes with an efficient 3.5 L. V-6, 278 HP engine and either a 6 speed automatic transmission.
For more than 21 years the Toyota Tacoma has been the definitive alternative for truck shoppers who feel full size trucks are just too big and expensive for their pocket books.
If you like the long running previous generation Tacoma, you are going to love the new redesigned 2017 model. This Tacoma TRD was definitely built for off road adventures much like the Jeep Wrangler, however the difference is when you get back to the pavement, the road is much better on the Tacoma. Our Jeep always felt bumpy, rough and loud even on paved roads. The new 2017 Tacoma came out with off road suspension that includes TRD-tuned Fox internal bypass shocks, which basically means a smoother ride both off and on the road. The 18” Michelin tires come on alloy wheels specifically made for off roading.
The Tacoma TRD is a midsize pickup truck available with only two cabs, the extended access cab (with small rear hinged rear doors) and the double cab (a large crew cab). A lot of innovation went into designing Tacoma doors. We are talking about high-strength steels used to create a door that is stiff, incredibly strong and built with the toughness you expect from your dream truck. The short 5’ bed is not real functional so your buddies probably will not be asking you to help them move the ugly couch. However it does feature some clever cargo management features such as house power, standard locking tailgate and the available locking hard tri fold tonneau cover that adds extra security so you can rest assured your cargo is protected.
I like the smart key with push button start, if you’re like me and your keys constantly slip to the bottom of your bag or pant pocket, no problem. When you approach your Tacoma with the available smart key fob in your bag or pocket you can unlock the doors by touching the driver side door handle and step in and start it up with just the push of a button on the dash.
The 2017 Tacoma comes in 6 different models: SR base model, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off Road, Limited, and the TRD Pro. It is no wonder they dominate this segment of midsize trucks.
