2018 Toyota Tacoma Specs and Features – Limited, SR, SR5, and TRD Sport Models
No significant changes to the 2018 Toyota Tacoma specs and features are expected, but we are hearing some slight enhancements to the exterior and interior. Some of what we’re hearing includes a slightly wider wheelbase, enhanced LED lighting, more towing and payload capacity, and a slight redesign to the front-end.
Interior changes include more comfortable seating, more leg room for rear seat passengers, improved safety standards, and a more intuitive dash display. Standard features should include dual-zone climate control, multi-purpose display, the backup camera, push button start/stop, and a much quieter cockpit. Side, front, and rear safety sensors will help with crash and lane assist guidance which is now becoming the norm.
Under the hood, persistent rumors suggest a 4 and 6-cylinder engine option available in 2.7 and 3.6-liter options. The horsepower will be comparable with the current model giving you about 160 and 280-hp respectively. This will bring out nearly 20MPG/city and 25MPG/high which will be comparable with other smaller 2018 pickups.
