2018 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6
According to some recent information that we have got, one of the most popular and best-selling midsize pickup trucks in the US market is coming soon as a 2018 model. Namely, the redesigned 2018 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 will be available in six trim levels, including the SR5, but rumored Tacoma Diesel model, we will see. However, we must say that Toyota will also have SR5 4×2 Access Cab 4-Cyl. 6-Speed Automatic, and SR5 4×2 Double Cab, 4×4 Access Cab V6 6-Speed Automatic Short Bed, and Long Bed.
When it comes to the exterior of the 2018 Toyota Tacoma, the SR5 trim will definitely be a better choice for you than the base SR. It will offer better equipment and show some serious changes and updates in terms of design, safety, and overall performance. The SR5 trim of this midsize pickup truck will come with the longer wheelbase and a double-cab configuration. In the back part, the fans will find a 6.1-foot bed that will be functional and able to carry whatever cargo you got. Also, the truck should increase its towing capacity significantly. The towing hooks can be easily noticed as well as its distinctive grille and large headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The back part of this Toyota truck will wear a chrome bumper and redesigned LED taillights. The truck will stand on standard 16-inch steel wheels, but you will also have the choice of alloy ones.
Apart from its exterior features, the SR5 trim level of the 2018 Toyota Tacoma will also show some significant upgrades inside its cabin, especially in terms of safety. The Tacoma will get the Toyota Safety Sense package that will include systems and features such as automatic emergency braking, pre-collision system, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, electronic stability control, traction control and other. The carmaker will also offer some better-quality materials than in the base SR trim. The driver should get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a 4.2-inch multi-information display in the instrument cluster. Remote keyless entry will come as standard and you will also get the Entune infotainment system. Of course, features such as Android Auto and Apple Car Play won’t be available.
