The 2017 Toyota Tacoma is one of the most well-rounded midsize trucks on the market, with aggressive power and outstanding capability complemented by front-line features and impressively well-fitted cabins. It’s perfect for anything from working with you during the 9 to 5 to carrying a jet ski down to Daytona Beach or Palm Coast for a day of fun on the water, and it packs more than you might expect.
Starting at $24,120*
The 2017 Tacoma offers six trim levels for drivers to choose from, with options including:
SR: Starting at $24,120*, the SR provides features such as an Entune audio system and integrated backup camera.
SR5: Starting at $26,205*, the SR5 adds Keyless entry with an engine immobilizer function, 4.2-inch display, and Entune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation App.
TRD Sport: Starting at $30,485*, the TRD Sport offers features such as LED daytime running lights, a Qi wireless phone charger, and sport-tuned suspension dampers.
TRD Off-Road: Starting at $31,740*, the TRD Off-Road allows drivers to go further by offering Bilstein suspension dampers, Crawl Control, and its own rugged bodywork.
Limited: Starting at $35,720*, the Limited delivers plenty of high-end technologies and features, including dual-zone automatic climate control, integrated navigation, and a power tilt and slide moonroof.
TRD Pro: Starting at $40,760*, the TRD Pro comes with its own exclusive upgrades, including TRD-tuned high-performance FOX 2.5 Internal Bypass shocks, TRD Pro skid plate, and TRD Pro cat-back exhaust.
Nobody gets behind the wheel of a 2017 Toyota Tacoma without expecting to enjoy a deep and commanding roar when they hit the gas, so the vehicle fits a forceful 3.5L Atkinson-cycle direct injection V6 engine as standard across all trim levels to provide up to 278-hp and 265 lb.-ft. of torque.
You’ll be able to pair that powerhouse with either a slick-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission system, which gets up to 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, or a 5-speed manual, which achieves up to 19 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway**. Those are stellar efficiency scores for a vehicle with this kind of bulk and firepower, but the Tacoma really makes its name in terms of raw capability.
You’ll be able to use Crawl Control to maintain command over unforgiving terrain, or cycle between five different drive modes to suit the ground beneath your wheels. Load the bed high and heavy thanks to a phenomenal 1440 lbs. maximum payload, or haul anything from trailers to ATVs with its maximum tow rating of 6,800 lbs.
The interior materials of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma have been selected to ensure ongoing durability, but it’s shocking just how many comfort features have been fitted without ever having to take a step back in terms of workmanlike practicality. A moonroof can let in the great outdoors, dual-zone climate control provides individual temperature settings, and a cutting-edge cab-to-bed seal combines with a front chin spoiler and enhanced aerodynamic performance to provide a whisper-quiet drive.
The Access Cab seat is perfect for children, while the Double Cab will supply a rear sizeable enough to accommodate taller adults. No matter your choice, you’ll find a folding rear seat that lets you take larger pieces of cargo in the body of the truck instead of in the bed.
That bed comes with an easy Lower Tailgate, deck rail system, and in-bed storage nook for your convenience. To give security a boost, try adding the available locking hard tri-fold tonneau cover.
The 2017 Tacoma leaves nothing out when it comes to high-end tech, borrowing the best available from the Toyota range to provide amenities such as:
Qi-Compatible Wireless Charging: Smartphone running on a slim red bar? Just place it on the available non-slip charging platform.
Smart Key w/Push Button Start: Unlock the vehicle, open the doors, and then fire up the engine without ever having to take the keys from your pocket.
Rear Parking Assist Sonar: Audible warning signals increase in frequency as you approach rear obstructions to let you know your distance from them.
As you might expect from an authoritative truck like the Tacoma, high-strength steel is used abundantly throughout the body to ensure ironclad toughness. You’ll also find your model fitted as standard with all the active protection devices of the Star Safety System, including:
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
Traction Control (TRAC)
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
Brake Assist (BA)
Smart Stop Technology (SST)
The Tacoma’s tempting fusion of power, efficiency, space, and technology is hard to ignore and impossible to resist. If you’d like to find out more, just come on down to the showroom here at Beaver Toyota of St. Augustine today.
