2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


CARHP Editorial Updated on: November 14, 2019


Going fast on over sand dunes is so fascinating, we came to know this after Ford launched its Raptor. Eventually, Chevrolet came up with the Colorado ZR2 and in the end the Tacoma TRD pro was here to tackle them. The Tacoma is ready to take on terrains, scramble over mud or tow a mini house with its legendary toughness and reliability.

The base inline 4 produces 156 hp while the optional V6 takes the output to 278 hp and 265 pound-feet of torque. If you want a reliable pickup truck with impressive off-roading capabilities and strong towing power, then Tacoma might just be what you are looking for. Rear-wheel drive is standard while all-wheel drive is optional and it's available as a crew-cab only.

Expert Review

5.0

Overall Rating


Being an off-road utilitarian vehicle, the Tacoma compromises on interior quality. This is where competitors like Ford Raptor and Chevy Colorado take an edge. They offer better interior comfort and infotainment system. With that been said, Tacoma still makes its place in truck shopper’s list for being utterly reliable.

We Recommend

There is only one trim, so it is advised to go with the manual transmission to make most out of the V6.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Engine and Performance

5.5/10

The Tacoma’s optional V-6 engine provides decent performance and towing muscle, but the base four-cylinder is weak-kneed and best avoided. We also advise steering clear of the persnickety six-speed automatic transmission with either power plant; stick with the six-speed manual and the V-6.” – Car and Driver

Engine and Transmission

The Tacoma offers two engine options under the hood. The TRD pro comes standard with 3.5 liter V6 powertrain .The base 2.7-liter 4-cylinder produces 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. It comes only with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 3.5-liter engine produces 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque which comes mated to either a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission (4WD only). There is an option to upgrade to a V6 engine, which is highly recommended as the 159hp generating 4-cylinder engine feels too weak and inferior for a vehicle this size. The TRD pro comes standard with 3.5 liter V6 powertrain. Power is routed through an electronically controlled, two-speed transfer case that also acts as a four wheel drive system when actuated by the driver. Otherwise, only rear wheel’s receives the power.

The transmissions saw some changes for the year 2019. The 5-speed manual transmission which was available for inline 4 engine is discontinued. The six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all trims. But for the old school guys who still prefer a manual gearbox, the TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Pro have an optional 6-speed manual transmission as well.

When compared to competitors, Ford Raptor F150 is most powerful among the lot. It develops 450 horses from its 3.6-Liter V6 engine which is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. In terms of torque figures, Nissan is ahead at 281-pound feet against 275-pound feet of Colorado ZR2 and 265-pound feet of Tacoma TRD Pro. Price wise, Nissan frontier is the cheapest of the lot at $32,740 albeit it is also the least powerful.

Acceleration

The six-speed manual not only puts the driver in charge of gear choices but in our testing, it was also quicker from zero to 60 mph” – Car and Driver

The V6 engine is preferred over the inline four for obvious reasons, with its 278 horsepower the Tacoma accelerates to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds. The V6 also helps in towing 6,800 pounds easily than compared to timid inline 4. The power at lower rpm’s is also unimpressive. Be it a rough path or smooth, swiftness is not one of Tacoma’s strong suit.

In comparison, Ford Raptor has a blistering time of 5.1 seconds to reach 60 MPH and crosses the quarter mile in 15.6 seconds. The Colorado bags the second spot followed by Nissan Frontier and Tacoma TRD.

Ride and Handling

The Toyota Tacoma with its 3.5 liter V 6 generates 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque which is enough for most of the individuals. A six speed manual transmission is standard while a six-speed automatic is optional. The key to its capabilities is typical off-roading shocks by fox racing and host of rally technology. To conquer the trails the fox suspension features 8 bypass zones, 5 of them are of compression and 3 of them are for rebound.

The Tacoma is a classic body on frame SUV with an independent front suspension with MacPherson strut and solid axle with leaf springs in the rear. The electronically limited slip differential can be locked at lower speeds with a touch of a button to make the tire run at same speed.The Multi terrain crawl features five modes for different altitudes, which includes mud, snow, rock, loose rock and dirt. They allow you to alter traction control, throttle response and braking. The steering is truck like and there and it well weighted.

Braking

The Toyota Tacoma features disc rotors in the front and drum brakes in the rear which are very dependable. It takes 124 feet’s to stop in an emergency situation which pretty good. The stops are straight but sometimes they feel overly sensitive, which is awkward in heavy traffic.

But once you compare this year’s Tacoma with its predecessors, it is easy to feel an improvement in the brakes. They seem more easily modulated.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Fuel Economy

Surprisingly, the 273 hp V6 delivers similar mileage as the 156 hp inline four. The standard engine returns 20 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway and 21 mpg in combined driving with rear wheel drive (RWD). Those figures lower by one mpg with 4-wheel drive (4WD).

These numbers are about the average for this class. The worst numbers were displayed when the V6 engine was paired with the 6-speed manual transmission, although the manual transmission is way more fun to drive. The engine also employs the Atkinson cycle for a better fuel economy.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Interior

“The Tacoma's high floor produces a legs-out driving posture that is more carlike than you might expect. Taller drivers tend to notice this because the telescoping steering wheel doesn't have enough adjustment range, forcing them to scoot closer with knees bent more than they would otherwise” – Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

Toyota is the best when it comes to laying interior, its clean layout and easy to reach control are designed of best in class ergonomics. One of the greatest shortcomings of Tacoma has to be the steering and seating position for the driver.

The fixed style front seats of Tacoma are only good for short to medium height drivers. But the taller drivers would constantly brush the headliner. But what the seats lack in customizability, they makeup in shape and feel. Most trims offer adjustable lumbar support.

Interior Features

Toyota did not bring too many changes in Tacoma’s interior. The cabin is simple and reminiscent of the early Tacoma’s. Traditional to some, unimpressively simple for others Analog instrumentation with speedometer, tachometer, coolant temperature, and fuel gauges; 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) with outside temperature, odometer, tripmeters, and average fuel economy

Bed Dimensions

The Tacoma’s bed is constructed from a composite material which can withstand bumps and scuffs. Tacoma offers two-bed sizes, a 60-inch short bed, and a 73-inch long bed. The step-in height is a bit uncomfortable as compared to competitors like Colorado, who offer a step for easy climbing. Out of the two cab options, the smaller Access Cab only uses the 60-inch bed, while the double cab has the option of either length.

The cargo bed in higher trims offers a lot of flexibility. Features like a LED box lighting, damped tailgate, a 120 volt AC power outlet, and adjustable tie-down cleats add to the cargo bed’s functionality.

4.5/10

The Toyota Tacoma was introduced in 1995 and now in its third generation. It was extensively redesigned in the year 2015. Despite minor changes here and there, Tacoma has mostly kept its old school look. The aggressive front grille and optional hood scoop depict power with a standard projector beam which shines brightly. Tacoma also has narrow headlights and puffed out fenders, which give it a meaner look. The chiseled lines and off-road stance give it a strong profile.

The rear tailgate is embossed with a Tacoma logo which opens smoothly and can be easily removed when needed.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Competition

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

The Colorado ZR2 introduced in 2017 and as of now speaks to the Tacoma TRD Pro's fiercest rival. The truck highlights noteworthy spool-valve suspension that were beforehand just found on supercars and F1 racers.

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is the real competition to Tacoma TRD. It also gets off road features which make it a really close fight between these two. Colorado has one ace up its sleeve and that’s an 8-speed automatic transmission which gives excellent fuel economy. But in most departments, Toyota Tacoma TRD is standout with its heritage and superb capabilities.

Nissan Frontier

The only thing the Nissan does better is price and it’s almost $8000 cheaper than Toyota Tacoma. It hasn’t been updated and looks dull in comparison with the Toyota. It does have a 4.0-Liter V6 engine which has the highest torque among the competition. Toyota still triumphs in most departments.

Ford Raptor

The Ranger Raptor is a savage truck that plays off the F-150 Raptor's prosperity. It utilizes 2.5-inch Fox Racing Shocks, has widened bodywork, and has a more extensive track for more noteworthy steadiness. Power originates from V6 engine which is more than most of the rivals. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Like the Tacoma TRD the Ford Raptor uses a FOX suspension for compliant ride over rough terrains.

2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Double Cab Final Verdict

If you want to take your Tacoma out in the dirt then absolutely go for TRD model. Toyota Tacoma is definitely a good pickup truck, which is apparent by its continuation even after so many years. It offers great off-road capability, towing capacity and utility you expect from a midsize truck. Tacoma feels at home when you take it off the road. Its reliable V6 engine and off-roading capabilities are paralleled by few. It has all the modern tech and features you can expect and Tacoma can take you anywhere you wish.
