Toyota Tacoma Limited 09

 

TORONTO, ONTARIO, November 29, 2017 – It’s not just what your Toyota Tacoma can do for you – it’s what you can do with this popular and proven compact pick-up truck. New for 2018, all Tacoma models are enhanced with the additional security of Toyota Safety Sense P and the Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab Limited (Short Box) makes its debut in the line-up.

“The Toyota Tacoma is the pick-up truck legend – built upon more than 80 years of experience, building trucks for the most challenging environments and tasks around the world,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “With the 2018 Toyota Tacoma, our powerful, capable and adventure-seeking pick-up is ready for Canadian drivers to help write the next chapter in that legendary story.”

The 2018 Tacoma is athletic and aerodynamic, with a sculpted front bumper, smooth rear deck, “TOYOTA” embossed tailgate with integrated spoiler, colour-keyed fender flares and double-wall composite cargo bed. Body choices include Access Cab or Double Cab. A rear step bumper provides easy access to either a five-foot or six-foot cargo bed. And in response to demands from Canadian drivers, the Tacoma is standard equipped with a reinforced tailgate that locks to protect the payload. It’s easy to lift or lower, and is straightforward to remove when the payload is longer than the bed.

Inside, pick-up truck lovers will experience the most comfortable, quietest Tacoma cab yet. Ready for adventure, every 2018 Tacoma is standard equipped with a mount for a GoPro® camera, while frequently-used controls are designed to operate even while wearing gloves. Regardless of cab configuration, every model offers welcome rear seat versatility. Double Cab Tacoma trucks feature a 60/40 split fold down seat back and fold out seat cushions, along with under-seat storage. Access Cabs feature rear seats that fold up, offering additional, climate controlled cargo capacity.

All models sport many welcome convenience and comfort features as standard, including a Display Audio system with advanced voice recognition, a multi-information display, keyless entry, air conditioning, power windows, map lamps, tilting/telescoping steering column, cruise control, cargo bed tie-downs and a set of four tie-down cleats, and more.

Pickups are synonymous with power, and the 2018 Toyota Tacoma delivers plenty, with a choice of two engine sizes. Most models are equipped with a 278 peak horsepower 3.5L V6 that generates up to 265 lb-ft of torque. Toyota also offers the Tacoma fitted with a highly efficient, 159-peak horsepower 2.7L four-cylinder that delivers up to 180 lb-ft of torque. Towing ratings range from 1,590-2,950 kg (3,500-6,500 lb) depending on model.

Both engines are built with Variable Valve Timing, electronic throttle control system with intelligence, and other features to maximize power over a wide RPM band, while also maximizing fuel efficiency.

Transmission choices include a six-speed automatic with lock-up torque converter and a six-speed manual. Drivetrain choices include a 4x2 model with rear-wheel-drive and a range of 4x4 models with on-demand, one-touch 4WD featuring an auto limited slip rear differential, two-speed transfer case and automatic disconnecting differential.

Every Tacoma features an independent, double wishbone type front suspension with stabilizer bar, and a rear suspension built around leaf springs for confident contact between the wheels and the road – or trail.

The Toyota Tacoma also delivers impressive safety performance, through a long list of active and passive safety systems. New for 2018, all models are standard-equipped with Toyota Safety Sense P. This bundle of active safety technologies – including the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – enhances driver capabilities to mitigate collisions, stay in lane, and see at night. Other safety technologies standard on all 2018 Tacoma models include the Toyota Star Safety System, eight air bags and a back-up camera.
