Get to know the brand-new 2023 Toyota Tacoma in this overview.


The Toyota Tacoma is a mid-range pickup truck popular for its affordable price and reliable build. Since its release 17 years ago, the truck has been a competitive choice. Still, it could use some updating to remain relevant in future models.


The 2023 Tacoma offers six packages, ranging from $28,000 to $46,900. Below are the estimated prices of each model package.

  • SR: $28,000
  • SR5: $30,300

  • TRD Off-Road: $36, 800
  • Limited: $41,300

Toyota’s press release confirms that the 2023 Tacoma is available in 34 model configurations. The options and customizations you choose for your Tacoma will adjust the final price of your vehicle.


The Tacoma has a highway MPG of 23.

Pros & Cons

Below are the pros and cons of the 2023 Tacoma.


  • Performs reliably on and off-road
  • Many customization options
  • Excellent technology
  • Smartphone compatibility
  • Affordable price and great value


  • Less powerful standard engine (upgraded option is the better choice)
  • Less legroom
  • Less storage space
  • Lower MPG than many competitors


The base engine in the Tacoma is a 159-hp four-cylinder that does not provide the best performance. However, the upgraded option is a 278-hp V-6 that will provide high performance and significantly better towing capacity.

The 2023 Tacoma performs well off-road, especially if you choose the TRD Off-Road or TRD Pro package. The Limited and Sport models are best if you drive your Tacoma primarily on paved roads or highways.

The Tacoma goes from 0–60 in 7.7 seconds and will reach a top speed of 113 mph. It has a 6-speed automatic transmission with a manual shifting mode.

Interior & Comfort

The newest Tacoma model has a power-adjustable driver’s seat that sets it apart from previous Tacomas. Regardless of this new feature, the legroom in Tacoma is significantly less than competitors and can feel somewhat cramped.

There is limited storage inside the cab other than the center console. The backseat is also smaller than you might expect from a mid-size pickup truck.


The 2023 Tacoma has average safety ratings based on crash tests. It also comes equipped with standard safety technology to warn you of incoming collisions, pedestrians, and lane departure.

Additional safety features include emergency braking, automatic high beams, and cruise control.

Once the 2023 Tacoma is released, you can look up its specific safety ratings on the NHTSA website.

Technology & Infotainment

Every 2023 Tacoma comes with at least a seven-inch touchscreen display, but most models feature an eight-inch screen. The system works with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay but does not provide a personal hotspot.

The Tacoma also includes USB ports, wireless charging, and Bluetooth compatibility to connect your device. There is also a new power outlet in the truck bed that will come in handy.
