Taking Note of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma's Choicest Qualities
When one of our customers from San Rafael, San Anselmo, Novato, Mill Valley, & San Francisco comes to us looking for a pickup truck, they usually have something big on their plates, from construction jobs, hauling, landscaping, DIY projects-basically, anything that demands a little more power, fortitude, and capability than your average SUV or sedan. That's where the 2017 Tacoma really shines, with six trims offering features of graduating excellence, giving San Francisco area drivers plenty of ways to make hard work into light work. The 2017 Tacoma starts strong with the SR trim, which moves up to the SR5 trim, TRD Sport trim, TRD Off-Road trim, Limited trim, and finally arriving at the jewel on top of the crown, the TRD Pro trim. Each trim sees configuration variations within, including short- and long-beds and available 4x4 setups, so you can make sure the truck you drive home is the perfect tool to handle all your driving demands.
2017 Toyota Tacoma-Performance Where it Counts
Most people don't look into a pickup truck unless they need an extra helping or two of performance and capability, and when it comes to the 2017 Tacoma, our best advice would be to get a second plate! The standard powerplant is no slouch - a 2.7-liter four-cylinder rated at 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, and it comes paired to a six-speed automatic, though there is an available five-speed manual transmissions for those driving purists out there. When you get up to the TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro trims, a 3.5-liter V6 engine becomes the standard, though it is available for the SR and SR5 trims as an option. This baby kicks out a lean, mean 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet, giving you the giddyup you need to get it all done. When properly equipped, the 2017 Tacoma has a max tow rating of 6,800 pounds.
2017 Toyota Tacoma-Handsome & Stylish
When it comes to style, the 2017 Tacoma is handsome, sculpted, and athletic on the outside, while being clean, contemporary, driver-focused, and comfortable on the inside. It's got that classic pickup truck body shape and style, with obviously updated, modern flourishes that make it incredibly stylish and captivating. While the exterior is subtle, there's no risk of "boring," and that's due in no small part to the handsome and bold body-stamped lines that drag the eye from headlight to tailpipe along the side, with embellishments on each wheel well for a true head-turner. The Tacoma looks solid and commanding from all angles, and that includes from the inside looking out-though the interior is decidedly more refined and inviting. High-quality cloth upholstery is the standard, but leather is not far off once you get to climbing that trim tree. Additional comforts like heated front seats are available for those who want them, while Entune™ Audio arrives standard, with an available upgrade to Entune™ Audio Plus with Connected Navigation for those who so desire it.
2017 Toyota Tacoma-Safety Features
