2018 Toyota Tacoma Release Date

In 2016, the Toyota Tacoma underwent its first complete redesign in what seemed like forever. In reality, this was its first redo since moving into the midsize pickup segment in 2005. With its redesign being so recent, we expect the Tacoma to continue into 2018 without any major modifications.

Stylistically, we expect zero changes from the new Tacoma, so look for it to continue with the same rugged looks it features today. We also anticipate no changes in the cabin, where the Tacoma continues its tradition of not letting people forget they’re in a truck.2018 Tacoma Towing Capacity First Drive

We expect the standard features to continue on, meaning its base SR trim should get 16-inch steel wheels, a cargo-bed rail system, adjustable tie-downs, a bed liner, a sliding rear window, air-conditioning, a GoPro windshield mount and more. As you move up the trims, there are more features, but never does the Tacoma become a “posh” pickup like larger competitors such as the Ford F-150.

The powertrain will also continue unchanged, meaning it’ll carry on with a standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 159 horsepower. Optionally, it has a 3.5-liter V6 with 278 horsepower at its disposal. With the latter engine, this pickup can haul up to a respectable 6,800 pounds, while the four-cylinder can pull around 3,500 pounds. These specs should all carry on unchanged.

The current Tacoma has yet to undergo full IIHS testing, but it did receive “Good” ratings in the moderate front overlap and side crash tests. With its relatively simple safety features, we don’t expect the Top Safety Pick designation to grace this midsize pickup anytime soon.

In contrast, other models have been making huge strides with the addition of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) as standard equipment on models like the Corolla, Prius and more. In those vehicles, the system adds adaptive cruise, forward collision warning and more.
