Engine Options & Performance Features

2019 Toyota Tacoma Engine SpecsYou’ll find that the Toyota Tacoma has two splendid engine options, plus an array of worthwhile performance features to boost everything from handling and power to efficiency.

The standard engine is a 2.7L 4-cylinder that makes 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. You can continue to increase the power output by going instead with a 3.5L V6 that can produce 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.

You’ll have the chance to select your preferred transmission too. The standard is a 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic transmission with intelligence, yet there’s a 6-speed manual for those that enjoy rowing their own gears.

From there, you can either pair the Active Traction Control system and automatic limited-slip differential with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

Maximum Payload & Towing Capabilities

Capability is a big part of any truck. Thankfully, the Toyota Tacoma can handle jobs of all sizes, as the maximum payload and towing are both impressive figures.

Toyota Tacoma Towing

First, the payload can stretch up to 1,620 pounds—giving you the chance to load the bed with supplies, cargo, rocks, or any other job-related goods. Also, with 6,800 pounds of maximum towing capability, you can bring a trailer or boat along with you and the family for those weekend getaways.

Towing is then made more effective by traits such as a Class IV towing hitch receiver, ATF cooler, engine oil cooler, power steering cooler, 130-amp alternator, Trailer-Sway Control system, and 4- and 7-pin connector with convertor.

Building Your Off-Road Dream Ride

If you love the feel of the rugged, untamed path under your wheels, the Toyota Tacoma is a model that you’ll have a genuine blast in.

There are a handful of features that improve off-road capability, such as Crawl Control. This system automatically determines the proper throttle and brake responses. Also, Multi-terrain Select allows you to choose from five unique driving modes—each one catering to a specific form of off-road terrain.

Lastly, there are the available Bilstein® shocks that help deliver a composed and balanced ride, even as you’re traversing mountainous paths.
