TORONTO, ONTARIO – October 21, 2021 – Wherever life takes you, your truck is your willing partner in adventure – which is why so many Canadians rely on the Toyota Tacoma for power, capability, and versatility. As a bonus, every Tacoma gets people and gear where they need to be in comfort and style.
“We have distilled more than 80 years worth or truck-building experience into the Toyota Tacoma – experience gained while tackling and taming the harshest driving conditions on the planet,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “That history has made Toyota trucks legendary, and makes every 2022 Toyota Tacoma ready to help write the next chapter in your own adventure story.”
For 2022, Toyota Canada offers fresh colour choices on select models, and enhances two of its limited production editions – the TRD Pro and Trail Edition – with additional performance and style features.
All models feature a hard-playing exterior that’s a clear reflection of Tacoma’s capabilities. Sport models feature sophisticated style while trail and off road models express their terrain-conquering prowess. All models are equipped with many practical features that Tacoma owners will love and others will envy – such as the locking tailgate that is not only easy to lift and lower but also to remove. Coupled with a rear step bumper, loading and unloading is a breeze.
If Tacoma’s exterior sets it apart from the competition, the interior puts it in the class by itself. Tacoma is ready to take you where others fear to tread in comfort and in style, with comfortable seating, versatile interiors, plenty of in-cabin storage space, thoughtfully designed instrumentation and controls that put everything at the driver’s beck and call, and an attention to materials, detail, quality, and finish that only Toyota can deliver.
Under the hood, all 2022 Tacoma models feature a powerful yet efficient 3.5L V6 coupled to a choice of six-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual gearbox. The result is plenty of power and impressive efficiency. Heavy-duty suspensions are ready to provide secure footing over almost any terrain while keeping driver and passengers comfortable. And every model comes factory-equipped with a towing package that includes Class IV hitch, 7-pin wire harness, and trailer sway control.
All models feature an impressive bundle of powerful yet intuitive technologies plus comfort and convenience amenities. Every model includes a touchscreen-equipped display audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a tilting/telescoping steering wheel, scuff plates, and rear privacy glass.
A long list of standard safety systems includes Toyota Safety Sense P, the Toyota Star Safety System, a backup camera, and eight air bags.
The Toyota Tacoma comes in three basic configurations: five-person Double Cab with five-foot bed, five-person Double Cab with six-foot bed, and four-person Access Cab with six-foot bed.
