Introducing the New Toyota Tacoma in Gaithersburg

If you're in the market for a new pickup truck, you may wonder if now is a good time to buy a Toyota Tacoma. After all, there are some significant changes in the Tacoma lineup for the new model. You're welcome to visit Fitzgerald Toyota Gaithersburg to learn all about the updated Toyota truck and its many great features.


Most Toyota Tacoma models come standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. A 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine is also available for select Tacoma trucks, providing you with 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque for your journeys around Washington, DC. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard for the range, but a six-speed manual is available on certain models. You can also choose between rear-wheel and four-wheel drive options.

Regarding fuel economy, Tacoma is about average for the mid-size truck segment. Models equipped with rear-wheel drive and the automatic transmission get an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Models with four-wheel drive and the automatic transmission are slightly less efficient, getting an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. If you opt for the manual transmission, fuel economy drops to an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

When properly equipped, the Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds around Arlington. The payload capacity is around 1,620 pounds. All new Toyota Tacoma models have stability control, hill start assist, trailer sway control, and brake control. Every Tacoma also comes with front and rear disc brakes. Four-wheel drive models come standard with downhill assist control, which helps you maintain control when descending steep grades.

Trim Levels

The new Toyota Tacoma is available in six trim levels: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. The SR is the base model. Standard features include 16-inch steel wheels, a bed liner, a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen display. The SR5 adds some much-needed creature comforts, like 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, an upgraded infotainment system with Siri Eyes Free and Scout GPS Link smartphone integration, heated front seats, and more.

If you're looking for a Tacoma built for off-roading, the TRD Sport is the way to go. It comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, all-terrain tires, Bilstein shocks, a sunroof, a sport-tuned suspension, and more. The TRD Off-Road is even more capable when it gets tough, thanks to its locking rear differential, Crawl Control, hill start assist, and skid plates.

For those who want a Tacoma that's more about style than substance, there's the Limited. It has chrome exterior trim, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and an upgraded infotainment system with navigation for your trips to Baltimore.

Finally, there's the TRD Pro. This trim level is the most capable Tacoma you can buy, and it can take on the most demanding off-road challenges around Alexandria. It comes with all the features of the TRD Off-Road, plus unique 16-inch BBS wheels, FOX shocks, a front skid plate, and more.


The Toyota Tacoma has a backup camera, anti-lock brakes, stability control, and traction control. Driver assists, like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and a blind spot monitor, are available.

The Tacoma also comes standard with Toyota's Safety Sense P suite of driver-assist features, including a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and more.
