2.7L 4-Cylinder Engine

Starting off the 2017 Toyota Tacoma lineup is a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine rated at 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. This power is sent to either a two-wheel drive system or a part-time four-wheel drive system with a low-range transfer case. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, but can be swapped for a 5-speed manual.

3.5L V6 Engine

Optional from the start of the lineup is a 3.5L V6 engine mated to the six-speed automatic transmission, which combine to deliver 278 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque to either of the aforementioned drivetrains. On the higher-tier TRD Sport, you can also employ a six-speed manual for ultimate control. The power that stems from this model is unparalleled, and you’ll certainly be eager to get behind the wheel every time.

Performance Features

What really takes the 2017 Toyota Tacoma’s performance to a new level is its impressive and inclusive feature set. Its wide range of performance-focused stylings and programs combine to deliver the ultimate driving experience. On the SR, you’ll find 16-inch steel wheels, which are upgraded to alloy on the next-level SR5. This is followed by the TRD Sport trim, which has a hood scoop for greater aerodynamics and larger 17-inch wheels.

Performance amps up on the TRD Off-Road model; all-terrain tires for the 16-inch alloy wheels, extra skid plates, a locking limited-slip rear differential, and Bilstein shocks are standard. Off-road traction control rounds out this model, boasting several terrain settings and crawl control to tackle any road condition ahead. The top-tier TRD Pro stands as a mix of everything, and includes traction management system, the hood scoop, and more.
