2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6
This trim level has always been one of the most popular choices among Tacoma buyers. Simply, it offers an amazing balance between price and quality. Although it stands just above the base SR trim, it comes with a nice list of standard equipment, which became even longer after the recent updates. A V6 engine is available in this trim level and this version, in particular, is very popular, due to excellent performances for the reasonable price. We have no doubt that the 2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 will carry on in the same way.
- Lots of standard equipment for the money.
- Strong V6 engine.
- Long list of safety and driver-assist features.
- Great for off-roading.
- Below-average fuel economy.
- Rivals are more spacious and more opulent on the inside.
In terms of the exterior design, there are no surprises in the 2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6. It features pretty much the same design as the rest of the lineup, which includes novelties in terms of a new grille. The current version comes with steel wheels, but you can get alloys with no charge.
We hope this will remain in the next-year model as well. While the new TRD Pro trim has received a new Army Green color, details about this version are still unavailable. This indicates that bigger changes won’t come and that we may count on familiar finishes – Barcelona Red Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Midnight Gray Metallic, Quicksand, Silver Sky Metallic, Super White, Cavalry Blue and Cement.
The recent update has brought a lot of interesting novelties and good thing is that most of them will be standard in the 2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6. First of all, this refers to a new 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Also, you can count on a larger, 8-inch touchscreen, which comes not only with a new interface, but also supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa.
On the other side, new camera-based systems, Multi-Terrain Monitor and Panoramic View Monitor won’t be a part of standard equipment but should be available as options. These systems provide a complete view around and underneath the vehicle and we expect to see this system in the next-generation Tundra as well.
2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 Engine
Of course, things will remain pretty much the same in this aspect. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 will carry on with a well-known 3.5-liter engine, which delivers around 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. An important novelty is that a 6-speed transmission has been revised and delivers a smoother ride and quicker downshifts.
When it comes to capabilities, this model can tow up to 6.800 pounds, which are pretty much average ratings for the class. On the other side, fuel economy definitely isn’t the strongest point of this engine, as you can count on around 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
