Engine | 2022 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma

2021 Toyota Tacoma trucks come equipped with a 159-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder motor. However, you can also opt for the 278-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. These engines come with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. If nothing changes, these will be the same powertrain options on the 2022 Toyota Tacoma.

Performance | 2022 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma

The V6 Toyota Tacoma features a 0-60 mph time of seven seconds and has a 113 mph top speed. This should carry over to the 2022 models. With the TRD Off-Road and Pro trims, you can get even more capability off-road. These models include a unique suspension, skid plates, a locking rear differential, and performance shock absorbers.

Total Length | 2022 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma

Currently, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma measures 212 to 226 inches long, based on the configuration you choose. Because we aren't expecting any major changes between the models, the 2022 Toyota Tacoma should have the same length.

Bed Length | 2022 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma

The 2021 Toyota Tacoma with an Access Cab comes with a 6-foot-1-inch truck bed. If you choose the Toyota Tacoma Double Cab, you get the option between a 5-foot or longer bed. All Tacoma trucks also include composite inner-bed walls, adjustable tie-downs, a unique bed rail system, and the removable tailgate. We expect all things to remain the same with the 2022 Toyota Tacoma.

Exterior Features | 2022 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma

2021 Toyota Tacoma dimensions are 212-226″ L x 74-75″ W x 71-72″ H. These Toyota trucks also come equipped with 16-, 17- and 18-inch wheels, plus your choice of ten exterior paint colors. Not only do we expect all of this to remain the same with the 2022 Toyota Tacoma, but we hope to see the same packages, such as the Utility, SX, SR5 Appearance, and the highly-coveted Nightshade Special Edition.

Technology | 2022 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma

2021 Toyota Tacoma models come with a tech-filled interior. Even the base models include a six-speaker sound system, a seven-inch touch screen, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth, three USB ports, and voice recognition. As far as safety is concerned, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma also comes standard with forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, forward automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning. Moving forward, we expect that the 2022 Toyota Tacoma will come with all of the same great features, if not more.
