Sometimes a full-sized pickup comes with more size and capabilities than you realistically need in your life. Fortunately, midsize pickups like the all-new 2021 Toyota Tacoma can be just as accommodating - and a lot more affordable! After the Tacoma's redesign in 2020, the main changes we see this year are introducing a pair of limited-edition trims: the Trail Special Edition and the Nightshade Edition, plus all V6 models also get dual-zone climate control as standard. The 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine produces 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque while offering a fuel economy of 13.8/11.4 L per 100 km (city/highway). Not to mention, this mid-sized machine can still haul up to 6,800 lbs. with a maximum payload of 1,685 ft.-lbs. We’d say that’s pretty mighty for a mid-size!
Giving Them Something to Talk About
The internet has been raving about the 2021 Toyota Tacoma! Here are just a few comments and reviews praising Tacoma for all the features it has to offer:
“The Toyota Tacoma is the best-selling truck in its segment for a reason. Foremost, it enjoys a long-standing reputation for durability and go-anywhere capability. But it's also smooth, efficient and easy to get along with on the road.”
“The Toyota Tacoma is the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S., and it's easy to see why. It's a good-looking truck that carries a reputation for quality and reliability. Off-road enthusiasts will be impressed by the TRD Pro model's trail-ready capabilities.”
“The Toyota Tacoma is known for its outstanding off-road capability. The TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro trims are especially good for hitting the trails, as they offer things such as unique suspension tuning and shock absorbers, a locking rear differential, and skid plates.”
“The 2021 Toyota Tacoma gains new Nightshade and Trail Special Editions this year, but otherwise carries over the things that keep it the top-selling mid-size pickup truck in the U.S. It’s excellent at off-road driving in TRD spec, has a useful pickup bed and an available crew-cab body, and can be configured with part-time four-wheel drive and a manual transmission.”
“The 2021 Tacoma remains a highly recommendable pickup truck, and one that appeals to a wide variety of buyers. It is offered in over 30 configurations, from a basic 4-cylinder work truck to a V6-packing off-road powerhouse. It even offers a manual transmission that is surprisingly easy to use, and all models include Toyota’s great suite of active safety features.”
If you haven't been able to tell by now, the 2021 Tacoma is making some big waves this season, including scoring plenty of high praises for its off-roading and hauling capabilities. From Mount Steele to Joffre Lake, if you're gearing up for rugged adventures across B.C., the Toyota Tacoma is the truck that is up to the challenge!
