The 2019 Toyota Tacoma 4WD is truly the quintessential pickup truck. Not only does it have superior off-road capability and strong towing capacity, but it comes with all the utility you would expect from a midsize truck. It comes with safety features and modern amenities that help it compete in its segment, but it's largely a truck that wants you to get wherever you want to go.
Underneath the hood, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 4WD will either sport a decent four-cylinder engine or a beefier V6. Depending on your preferences, you'll have access to either two- or four-wheel drive, and it can come as an extended-cab or crew-cab truck. In other words, it has all the basics covered.
What’s New for 2019
For 2019, Toyota updated the TRD Pro trim with more equipment for off-roading, as well as the trim's high-mounted air intake. Finally, all trims now come with two more USB charge ports. Otherwise, the Tacoma 4WD remains the same from the 2016 generation.
The 2019 Toyota Tacoma 4WD is a midsize truck with several trim choices. Those seeking the greatest value with the greatest capability should focus on the TRD Off-Road trim. It has the better engine and can come with an extended cab.
Trim Levels and Major Upgrades
There are six trim levels available for the Toyota Tacoma: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro.
The entry-level trim is the SR, and it's good as a work truck, but the SR5 offers more choice and value. Above that are the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 4WD TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road trims, both of which are well-equipped. On the inside, they're the same, but the hardware lets the Off-Road model hold stronger when the road disappears. Finally, the Limited is more street-oriented, and so it comes with so-called "creature comforts," whereas the TRD Pro is the strongest off-road model.
Though the SR is the entry-level model, Toyota stuffs several features into it. For example, you can choose between two-wheel drive and part-time four-wheel drive, as well as the choice between a crew cab or an extended cab. Beneath the hood, it has a 2.7-liter engine capable of generating 159 hp, 180 lb-ft and coupled with a six-speed automatic.
Most buyers will look at the SR5 for the best value, though. Along with the equipment found on the SR, you'll also get foglights and 16-inch alloy wheels for better presence on the road. Additionally, you'll gain a few interior luxuries, such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and remote keyless entry.
The TRD Sport has the same cab and bed configurations that the SR5 has, but it upgrades the engine to a 3.-5 liter V6, producing 278 hp, 265 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic comes with all rear-wheel drive versions, but you'll have the option to switch to six-speed manual with the four-wheel drive option.
As we mentioned before, the Off-Road trim comes with almost exactly the same engine and interior configurations. However, it also comes with textured black fender flares and a chrome rear bumper. Performance-wise, it's stronger off the road thanks to its extra skid plates, lockable rear differential, and lack of front airdam.
Street drivers wanting more can opt for the Limited, which is the Tacoma's most refined model. It lacks some configuration as you can only have the V6 engine, a crew cab, and the short bed. But you'll get special 18-inch wheels on low-profile tires to enhance your street presence. You won't get the off-road upgrades from the TRD Off-Road, but you will get its optional features as standard fare.
Finally, the TRD Pro only comes with a short bed, crew cab, and four-wheel drive configuration. Your biggest choice comes down to the manual or automatic transmission. As Toyota's beefiest off-roader, the TRD Pro has the same equipment as the Off-Road, but with far more style. Not only that, but it's a full inch taller on the road.
The 2019 Toyota Tacoma 4WD suffers the most with the powertrain, thanks to a somewhat shifty transmission. Fortunately, the midsize truck is good enough at handling whether you're on the road or not. On-road, the brake modulation could use an upgrade, but the Tacoma has no off-road competition.
The six-speed automatic works seamlessly, but the calibration certainly prefers higher gears. The restrained body roll allows you to feel competent behind the wheel of any of the Tacoma trims. That's important when you inevitably come across the winding roads on the way to the campgrounds.
As far as the 2019 Toyota Tacoma 4WD is concerned, most of the models offer fundamentally similar results: 18 MPG when in the city, 22 MPG on the highway.
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.
