Toyota Tacoma: Engine and Performance Specs
Whether navigating snowy mountain trails or cruising down the wide-open highway, drivers will find that the Toyota Tacoma delivers the versatility and strength to match whatever the day has in store.
Offering three distinct trim levels to suit your individual needs, its Atkinson-cycle 3.5L V6 engine can produce up to 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of road gripping torque. Engineered with VVT-i self-cleaning injectors to help maximize output, it’s paired with a 6-speed ECT-i automatic transmission with 4WDemand part-time 4-wheel drivetrain.
The result is a midsize pickup that seamlessly shifts and holds its RPM whether navigating through stop-and-go traffic or hauling a heavy trailer uphill. Add in a comparatively light curb weight and Automatic Limited-Slip Differential and what you have is one nimble road warrior.

Ways to Maximize Your Gas Mileage
While the Toyota Tacoma does everything possible to limit your trips to the gas pump, there’s a few simple things that you can do to extend your pickup’s driving range including:
Limit Your Towing and Payload
While the Tacoma supplies an impressive 6,400-pound max towing capacity, doing things like unhitching the trailer when off the job can greatly decrease the overall burden placed on your powertrain. This also goes for any excess weight you carry inside the truck bed or cabin.
Schedule Routine Service
In order to keep your investment running at peak efficiency, you should make a point to keep up with its regular maintenance schedule. This involves changing the oil and filter every 5,000-7,000 miles, making sure all fluids are topped off, and having things like the brakes inspected every few months.
Inspect Your Tires
Properly inflated tires are designed to firmly grip the road, so you can confidently steer and brake without issue. When underinflated, it can result in added pressure placed on your engine to perform.
Every 1.0 drop in PSI can lower your gas mileage by as much as 0.2%, which quickly starts to add up if ignored.
