The Toyota Tacoma has long been a popular choice for drivers looking for a compact pickup truck that has powerful capabilities. In 2016, the third generation of the Tacoma was released, giving the model a more aggressive appearance. Sleeker headlights, a beefier front grille, and more modern exterior lines have all worked together well. The 2019 version of the truck comes with an additional equipment package, the SX. Otherwise, many features remain the same from the 2018 version of the Tacoma.
Options on the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 2WD
There are five different trims for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 2WD, which uses a rear-wheel drive system. The SR and SR5 are the more basic models. With these trims, the 2WD truck can come with either a four-cylinder or V6 engine, and it can come with either an access or double cab.
The TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road can both come in a 2WD model or a 4WD version. The TRD Sport uses a V6 engine, with either an access or double cab, and its double cab version can be paired with a short or long bed. The TRD Off-Road has one version that comes in two-wheel drive. It has a double cab, short bed, and V6 engine.

It incorporates variable valve timing with intelligence, as does the larger version, and it has 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The other option is the 3.5-liter V6, which can generate a much more impressive 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque.
The 2019 Toyota Tacoma 2WD can get around 19 or 20 miles per gallon on city roads and around 23 or 24 miles per gallon on the highway.
All of the trims, with the exception of the SR, include a Class-IV towing hitch receiver. Most of the models have a towing capacity of at least 6,000 pounds.
The Tacoma's Design
The truck has been built with strength and durability in mind. Eight-inch cross members were used during construction along with a fully boxed sub-frame that was put in place to enhance stability. In the front, a double-wishbone suspension works with a coil spring, and a leaf spring suspension in the back helps to smooth out the ride. The TRD uses sport-tuned suspension, with the TRD Off-Road utilizing a specialized suspension system designed for trips taken off the pavement.
Exterior features are dependent on the model one selects. The SR comes with standard headlights and daytime running lights. The truck is enhanced to include fog lights on the SR5, LED daytime running lights on the TRD, and chrome bezels on the Limited. Likewise, the front design could vary from having a dark gray grille on the SR to a silver grille with chrome accents on the Limited.
The Limited also includes a power tilt and slide moonroof and a power sliding rear window. It rides on 18" polished wheels, while the TRD Sport sits on 17" versions and the SR sits on 16" wheels.
Inside the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 2WD
The interior advantages also vary depending on which 2019 Toyota Tacoma 2WD pickup is chosen. The basics, like standard air conditioning, fabric seats, and three USB ports, are included on the SR.
Features go up from there. For example, the Limited includes a front dual-zone climate system for better temperature control and premium leather-trimmed seats. The Limited, TRD Sport, and TRD Off-Road all come with wireless charging for convenience, a shift lever and steering wheel trimmed with leather, and a Smart Key system that allows for quick access to the truck.
Keeping People Entertained
The truck has a comprehensive entertainment system that the driver and passengers can all appreciate. At the SR level of the Tacoma, the Entune Audio system runs through a 6.1" touchscreen display, and it's capable of taking voice commands and making wireless connections via Bluetooth. On the SR5, the display is a high-resolution model, and it can play HD radio.
With the TRD models, the truck uses the Entune Premium Audio system in which navigation and a suite of apps are integrated into the set-up. The touchscreen measures a bit larger, at seven inches. On the Limited, the sound is boosted by the use of high-end JBL speakers.
All models of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 2WD come with the Toyota Safety Sense suite. This includes systems that can alert drivers whenever they're veering out of their lanes or about to hit another object in a front collision. The specialized cruise control system can adjust to changing traffic, and the high beams can automatically switch to standard ones when a car is approaching.
They also come with a full collection of air bags and mechanisms that work to enhance control, even on uneven terrain or in slippery conditions. A blind spot monitoring system can warn people when other vehicles are difficult to see; this is automatically included on the Limited and an available option on the TRD trim. Similarly, the parking assistance feature that uses sonar when the truck is in reverse comes on the Limited and is available on the TRD.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Toyota Tacoma
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Toyota Tacoma invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Toyota Tacoma MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
