The Toyota Tacoma is a smaller pickup that's ideal for shoppers who want the usefulness of a truck bed, a vehicle that is easier to drive in busy places, and don't need big towing specs like the 2019 Toyota Tundra. Let's see what the Tacoma brings to the table, then drive in from Norwalk OH or Lorain to test drive one from our selection!


The Tacoma has two engines in its lineup. The first two trims have a 2.5L with 159 horsepower, 180 lb-ft torque, and towing up to 3,500 pounds. The remaining trims have a standard 3.5L V6 with 278 horsepower, 265 lb-ft torque, and towing up to 6,800 pounds. The first two trims can upgrade to the V6 if desired.

If you want to do some off-roading and get away from the Amherst OH pavement, the TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro trims are your best bet. They have shocks, skid plates, a locking rear differential, and other technologies for safer off-pavement travels.


Depending on the trim you choose, the Tacoma comes in an Access Cab or Double Cab style. Bed lengths are either 5-feet or 6.1-feet. Once you load up the bed, you'll have a payload that ranges from 1,155- to 1,620 pounds, depending on your Tacoma configuration. To make the bed more user-friendly, there's a small in-bed storage compartment.


The 2019 Tacoma comes with Bluetooth, a backup camera, and touchscreen. There's also a standard 4.2-inch multi-information display and the comprehensive Toyota Safety Sense package of advanced crash avoidance and driver assistance features! As you move up the trims you can get remote keyless entry, larger touchscreens, navigation, a 120V outlet, a nifty wireless charging pad, and a premium audio system from the fine folks over at JBL.

As you can see, the Tacoma covers shoppers who want to keep things simple and those that want to splash out on features. For more information on the 2019 Toyota Tacoma small pickup, stop into our Sandusky Toyota dealership this week!
