New 2017 Toyota Tacoma Review for Kansas City
With the new 2017 Toyota Tacoma, Kansas City drivers will have no problem hauling everything they need. Legends Toyota will help you pick between the 5 different trim options and plenty of towing capacity, you'll be able to head anywhere in the Kansas City area or even off-road with this truck.
The 2017 Toyota Tacoma has two transmission options: 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. A manual transmission truck is much more fun to drive, plus the new look of the Tacoma combines the off-road strength with new, sharp lines. No matter where you're headed: around Kansas City or off-road, the 3.5-liter V6 direct-injection engine in the 2017 Toyota Tacoma is ready to take you anywhere.

The Toyota Tacoma is a midsize pickup truck available with two cabs: the extended Access Cab (with small, rear-hinged back doors) and the Double Cab (a larger crew cab). Access Cab models come exclusively with a 73.7-inch long bed. Double Cab models are offered with either a 60.5-inch short bed or the long bed (extended-wheelbase model).
The Tacoma is offered in five trim levels: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited and TRD Pro.
The SR model comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels, a cargo-bed rail system with fixed and adjustable tie-downs, a bedliner, a sliding rear window, power windows and locks, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, a GoPro windshield mount, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, voice controls, Siri Eyes Free (for Apple phones), a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, and a six-speaker audio system with a CD player, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack.
Options specific to the SR include the SR Convenience package, which includes cruise control and remote keyless entry. If you spring for that package, 16-inch black alloy wheels can be added as well. Four-cylinder Access Cab models offer a Utility package, which deletes the rear seat and sliding rear window, removes the two rear speakers (reducing the total to four) and replaces the standard body-colored door handles, bumpers and mirror caps with black plastic pieces.
The SR5 model adds the SR Convenience package's items plus foglights, chrome exterior accents, variable intermittent wipers, rear privacy glass, a color trip computer, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever, satellite radio and the Scout GPS Link navigation app (requires a compatible smartphone).
SR5 options include the SR5 Appearance package, which bundles 16-inch silver alloy wheels and body-colored over-fenders. A SR5 Parking Sonar and Navigation package for V6 models adds rear parking sensors and an upgraded infotainment bundle with a 7-inch touchscreen, the Entune App Suite, HD radio and an integrated navigation system. The Truck Exterior package adds a bed extender, tube step rails and a spare tire lock.
The TRD Sport model adds LED daytime running lights, unique exterior trim (including a hood scoop), 17-inch alloy wheels, power-sliding rear privacy glass (on Double Cabs only), sport-tuned suspension dampers, a bed-mounted 120-volt power outlet, keyless entry and ignition (automatic transmission only), a wireless phone charger (Qi standard), special upholstery (shared with the TRD Off-Road), the auto-dimming rearview mirror and the SR5's optional upgraded infotainment bundle.
TRD Sport options include a Premium and Technology package that adds automatic headlights, a sunroof (Double Cab only), dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, rear parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. On Double Cab models with the automatic transmission, this package can be ordered in conjunction with an upgraded JBL stereo with a subwoofer.
Next up is the TRD Off-Road model, which adds its own rugged body trim (without the TRD Sport's hood scoop), special 16-inch alloy wheels, Bilstein suspension dampers and removes the chin spoiler (to improve the truck's off-road ability). All TRD Off-Road Tacomas share an electronic locking rear differential, and the Crawl Control system (essentially cruise control for off-road maneuvers between 1 and 5 mph) is further added if you select the automatic transmission. Options mirror those of the TRD Sport.
The Limited model comes exclusively as a Double Cab and gets 18-inch alloy wheels, unique exterior and interior trim, leather upholstery and the contents of the TRD twins' optional Premium and Technology package (including the JBL stereo).
At the top of the range is the TRD Pro, a highly evolved version of the TRD Off-Road 4WD Double Cab short bed. It comes standard with the V6 Tow package and has special 16-inch wheels, Fox suspension dampers, revised springs (with more ground clearance), unique exterior trim, LED foglights, a front skid plate, a power-sliding rear window with privacy glass, and unique leather seats.
A hard lockable tonneau cover and a towing package (V6 models only) are offered as stand-alone options for most trim levels.
