2019 Toyota Tacoma Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

From the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, Pickuptrucks.com's Mark Williams checks out the updated 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.


Although not quite an evolution, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro off-road trim level will have a new look and some interesting changes. It hits dealerships in fall 2018 and competes with the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.


The 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro is quite similar to the 2018 version, but it now shares a few upgraded styling features with the Tundra and 4Runner TRD Pro. What are those shared features? The TRD logo on the new aluminum front skid plate,  three distinct colors (Super White, Midnight Black Metallic and Voodoo Blue), similar upgraded suspensions and the Toyota Star Safety System as standard. The Star Safety System includes stability and traction control, an anti-lock brake system, brake-force distribution and smart-stop technology.


The Tacoma and Tundra will also come standard with Toyota's Safety Sense P, which includes a precollision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, sway control, auto high beams and adaptive cruise control.


A new TRD desert air intake (also called a snorkel) is at the top of the list of new features available for the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro. It's designed to provide the Tacoma's 3.5-liter V-6 with cleaner air on dusty trails or protection against water ingestion during stream crossings.


Toyota enthusiasts will recognize the 2.5-inch-diameter retuned high-performance Fox shocks, taller front coils and softer rear leaf springs. The front springs offer about an inch m...

Toyota enthusiasts will recognize the 2.5-inch-diameter retuned high-performance Fox shocks, taller front coils and softer rear leaf springs. The front springs offer about an inch more ride height and the rears springs deliver a touch more wheel travel. Additionally, the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro offers black alloy wheels and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Kevlar All-Terrain tires.


All 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro models offer a choice between a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, the latter of which allows for the inclusion of Toyota's unique Crawl Control technology that provides computer-controlled multiple-speed trail ascent or descent. Of course, the four Fox shock absorbers are key to the TRD Pro's performance. They have eight separate bypass zones for the front shocks (five compression and three rebound) and 11 bypass zones for the rear (seven compression and four rebound). Finally, the rear Fox shocks have a small 2-inch remote reservoir to help with cooling and performance.


Other standard features on the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro include the newest version of the Entune Premium JBL Audio system with a subwoofer amplifier and integrated navigation and apps suite. Inside, the TRD Pro has unique floormats and leather-trimmed seats as well as TRD Pro logos.

Worst new vehicle I’ve purchased

by Glyde from Martinez, Ga. on December 8, 2019

Would not buy again or recommend to anyone else. Unknown shudder/vibration at low speed (20-25 mph). Seats seem uncomfortable on trips for lower back support. Very disappointed with purchase. Toyota ... Read full review

Great mid-size truck with rock solid reliability.

by JimO from NY on December 3, 2019

Overall I really light the truck, the power is good and I avg over 20mpg on highways and country roads. People complain about it upshifting too soon and then having to downshift. This can be overcome ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
