2022 Toyota Tacoma
Toyota is among the oldest and most respected automotive brands. They’re innovative and forward-thinking, and the 2022 Toyota Tacoma is exactly that. The 2022 Tacoma comes from the same generation released in 2016 but has had some welcome upgrades.
Toyota is known for its durability, and the Tacoma is no exception. It's solidly built with a sleek design. The car has power windows, door lock trims higher up, and sliding rear windows with privacy glass. The 1.524m bed comes with a hard tri-fold tonneau cover which is lockable and weather-resistant.
The five-passenger seater has ample legroom in the front and rear seats, and the 10-way power seat gives you a greater range of motion. The forward and side-looking cameras provide clear visibility for the driver. The car's automatic climate control system includes an air filter and individual settings for the driver and front passenger.
Technology & Infotainment
Toyota upgraded its touchscreen in 2020. The Tacoma has a new screen with better graphics and responsiveness. The system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and even has Amazon Alexa. Trims above the TRD also offer wireless charging for cellphones. Just place the phone in the charging tray and ensure there’s no obstruction between your phone and the tray. All trims come standard with three USB ports, and built-in navigation is an optional upgrade on all trims. It's a good idea to get this feature when you end up in places without cellphone coverage.
Vehicle stability control, traction control, and an anti-braking system are standard features on the Toyota Tacoma. There are also side airbags and passenger knee airbags. There are roll-sensing front head/side curtain airbags as well. The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) has an individual tire location alert.
Performance and Fuel Efficiency
The SR and SR5 trims come standard with a 2.7L four-cylinder engine. Trims higher than SR5 can be fitted with a 3.5L V6 engine. The six-speed automatic transmission is the standard across all trims, though you may change to a six-speed manual transmission. Fuel consumption is 11.4L/100km highway and 13.8L/100km city. The Tacoma has good towing capabilities, going up to 2,903 kg.
The 2022 Tacoma is available in six trims, the base model is the SR, and the higher-end trims are the SB Nightshade and TRD Pro. Prices range from $40,350 for the SR to $47,440 for the TRD Pro.
The Tacoma falls in the midsize truck category with great towing capabilities and ample storage space. It has good fuel economy ratings and is available in hybrid as well. So we suggest you reserve yours today with Scarborough Toyota and take it for a test drive.
