2021 Toyota Tacoma Review

Not everybody needs the size and capabilities of a full-size pickup. That's where midsize trucks come in, and the 2021 Toyota Tacoma is one of the better choices in the class. It trails behind the more city-friendly Honda Ridgeline and all-terrain Jeep Gladiator in our rankings, but we think the Tacoma is a sensible middle ground between the two. It also feels a little more refined than rivals from Chevrolet, Ford and GMC.

After last year's significant refresh, there are no changes to the core Tacoma offerings. There are, however, a pair of new limited-edition trims for buyers looking for something a little different. The Trail Special Edition is based on the near entry-level SR5 trim with the double-cab body style. Limited to 7,000 units, it comes with all-terrain tires and lockable bed storage bins. The driver's side bin is even insulated so it can function as a built-in cooler. There's also a Nightshade Special Edition based on the more expensive Limited trim, but changes are only aesthetic, with blacked-out badging and trim throughout. Just 5,000 are planned for production.

Is the Tacoma the right midsize truck for you? Check out our Expert Rating to get our in-depth take on the 2021Tacoma.

What's it like to live with?

When the Tacoma was redesigned in 2016, we wanted to know what it was like to live with, so we bought one. Specifically, we purchased the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road and lived with it in our long-term fleet for nearly two years, putting over 40,000 miles on the odometer. The Tacoma has received some updates since its redesign in 2016, but it's the same generation truck so most of our observations apply. To learn about everything from seat comfort to reliability, check out all the details in our long-term Tacoma test.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.7 / 10
The Toyota Tacoma is the best-selling truck in its segment for a reason. Foremost, it enjoys a long-standing reputation for durability and go-anywhere capability. But it's also smooth, efficient and easy to get along with on the road.

How does it drive?

7.5
The Tacoma steers and handles smoothly and is generally easy to drive. The main exception is the brakes, which feel grabby and can induce nosedive in hard stops. We do wish the 3.5-liter V6 felt a bit more willing, but there is enough power for daily use. The transmission shifts predictably and is able to get the most out of the engine.

Off-road is where the Tacoma truly shines and stands above all others except the Gladiator. The Tacoma has the clearance, gearing and traction to tackle serious terrain, and the brakes and throttle prove brilliantly precise and controllable in low-range crawling situations.

How comfortable is it?

7.5
The Tacoma was never a disagreeable truck to ride in, but changes introduced in 2020 made it a little bit more pleasant. A fully adjustable 10-way driver's seat comes standard in V6 trucks, and this seat promotes long-range comfort for drivers of almost all shapes and sizes.

The thicker side-window glass cuts down the wind noise compared to prior years, though the Colorado and the Ridgeline still have an edge here. The same is true for ride quality since the Tacoma is still truckier than its smoothest-riding competitors. As for the climate system, it has effective heating and cooling and is easy to adjust.

How’s the interior?

7.5
The Tacoma's main drawback is its tallish step-in height. Get past that and everything else is solid once you're inside. The controls are logical and straightforward, including the large infotainment screen and the recently redesigned knobs and physical shortcut buttons.

The 10-way power seat provides a greater range of adjustability than in pre-2020 models, but we wish the telescoping steering wheel pulled out more. The front-seat roominess benefits from the seat's added downward adjustability, but other dimensions remain the same as before. Visibility is very good thanks to the profile of the hood, ample side windows, and a forward- and side-looking camera system.

How’s the tech?

8.0
The latest Tacoma is pretty well stocked with tech features. Toyota introduced a new screen in 2020 that featured a larger size, crisper map graphics and quicker responses than in previous models. You also get Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and even Amazon Alexa. Built-in navigation is an inexpensive upgrade option, and it's probably worth getting if you're planning on venturing out of cellphone range a lot.

Toyota's approach to standard active safety tech is admirable. Adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam control, and even a driver drowsiness warning system are all standard on all grades.

How’s the storage?

7.5
The Tacoma's truck bed is ideal. It's made of a composite material that needs no bedliner, and it has an enviable combination of fixed and movable tie-downs. Loading is easy because the tailgate opens low and its bedsides aren't comically tall. With a 6,800-pound maximum tow rating, the Tacoma does lag behind some others, but the deficit isn't large.

Interior storage for small items is adequate. Folding the rear seats down into their cargo-carrying position is a little fussy, but as a result it offers better storage space than all but the Ridgeline and the Gladiator. Installing child safety seats is easy, but larger rear-facing and infant seats might eat into front passenger room.

How economical is it?

7.5
The 3.5-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic combo earns 20 mpg combined (18 city/22 highway) in 4WD trim and 21 mpg combined in rear-wheel-drive models. Our testing leads us to believe that these ratings are achievable and accurate.

We tested a 2016 TRD 4WD Off-Road for more than a year and averaged 18.6 mpg over 40,000 miles of use. We were able to exceed the highway rating on several road trips, and there are good reasons why our truck may have come up just over 1 mpg short. Our home-base location skews the mix toward city driving, and the TRD Off-Road has knobbier tires and lacks the front airdam that comes on most Tacomas.

Is it a good value?

7.5
You get a lot of well-built truck and a bed with many standard cargo-handling and safety features for your money. The value equation is particularly good on the TRD models. Build quality is solid, and Toyota trucks are known for their mechanical durability. Although warranty coverage isn't generous, you do get two years of free scheduled maintenance.

Wildcard

8.5
Toyota's Tacoma manages to deliver fun in a right-size pickup package. Its TRD off-road packages are the real deal, not sticker packages inflated by marketing hype. The buying public has responded with fierce loyalty, and this truck has also attracted the attention of the aftermarket, which supports it with many products that enable all sorts of customization. The Tacoma is great for those who want the look and feel of an off-roader even if they'll never get it dirty because it's also an easy-driving and dependable pickup truck.

Which Tacoma does Edmunds recommend?

The midtier TRD Sport and Off-Road are quite appealing. They both add plenty of features and offer a diverse options list. Of the two, the TRD Off-Road is our pick. It enhances the truck's off-road ability while keeping the cost reasonable. While the deletion of the airdam comes with a slight fuel economy penalty, we think it's offset by the more comfortable ride provided by the smaller wheels and Bilstein shocks.

2021 Toyota Tacoma models

The Toyota Tacoma is a midsize pickup truck offered in six trim levels: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited and TRD Pro.The SR and SR5 come standard with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine producing 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Optional for those trims — and standard on all others — is a 3.5-liter V6 with 278 hp and 265 lb-ft on tap. A six-speed automatic is common across the lineup, though some trims offer a six-speed manual transmission in conjunction with the V6.

Other choices include an extended cab (Access Cab) configuration with a 6.1-foot bed or a crew cab (Double Cab) with a 5- or 6.1-foot bed. Rear-wheel drive is standard on most trims, with part-time four-wheel drive (with a low-range transfer case) an option.

SR
The SR is the work truck of the bunch and kicks things off with:

  • 16-inch steel wheels
  • Sliding rear window
  • Power-adjustable and heated side mirrors
  • Tough composite bed that needs no bedliner
  • Movable bed cleats
  • Locking/unlocking vehicle remote (V6 only; can be added to four-cylinder models via Convenience package)
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control (V6 only)
  • 7-inch touchscreen

  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane departure warning (alerts you if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane)
  • Adaptive cruise control (maintains a driver-set distance between the Toyota and the car in front)

SR5
The SR5 will be a little more palatable for most non-commercial buyers. Among its upgrades are:

  • Alloy wheels (V6 only)
  • Chrome exterior trim
  • Locking/unlocking vehicle remote
  • Power-sliding rear window (V6 Double Cab only)
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat (V6 only)

    • Unique seat trim
    • All-weather floor mats
    • 120-volt outlet in bed
    • Locking storage bins in bed

TRD Sport
The TRD Sport is the mildest of the off-road Tacomas. Because it's powered by the V6, all non-optional features listed above designated "V6 only" are standard here. On top of the SR5 features, it adds:

  • 17-inch wheels
  • Sport-tuned suspension
  • Hood scoop
  • Heated mirrors
  • Body-colored fender flares and rear bumper
  • 120-volt outlet in bed
  • Keyless entry and ignition (automatic transmission only)

    • Rear parking sensors
  • Premium Audio and Dynamic Navigation package
    • Navigation system
    • JBL premium audio system
  • Premium Sport package
    • Sunroof
    • Heated front seats
    • Leather upholstery
  • Advanced Technology package
    • 360-degree camera system (gives you a top-down view of the Tacoma and its surroundings for tight parking situations)
  • LED headlights

TRD Off-Road
The TRD Off-Road is equipped similarly to the TRD Sport but adds genuine off-road performance bits. Upgrades include:

  • 16-inch wheels
  • Removes the Sport's hood scoop

  • Removes front airdam
  • Lockable rear differential

The TRD Off-Road's option packages are generally the same as those for the TRD Sport. The available Multi-Terrain monitor adds front- and side-view cameras for fine-tuning the Tacoma's position off-road.

Limited
The Tacoma Limited primarily adds luxury features. It includes most of the TRD Sport's equipment, minus the sport suspension and hood scoop. Also added are:

  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • LED headlights
  • Silver grille
  • Sunroof
  • Leather upholstery
  • JBL audio system
  • Navigation system
  • Blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Rear parking sensors
  • 360-degree camera system

The only notable package here is the Nightshade Special Edition package. It adds:

  • Black exterior styling elements, including mirror caps and door handles

5 out of 5 stars, My first Taco, and her name is Maggie
Connor McCollum,
SR5 4dr Double Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

I just leased a brand new 2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 Double Cab on my birthday and couldn't be happier! I was casually looking for used ones but sales talked me into leasing a new one to keep my payment down and not paying for depreciation (which doesn't really exist on this vehicle by the way) This truck was literally fresh off the transporter with 4 miles on it! I even saw it get unloaded from the transporter thinking there's no way that would ever be mine. It wasn't my first color choice however considering I wanted what everyone else wants, either Cement Grey, Quicksand Brown, or Cavalry Blue. Of course those colors are red-hot which makes them virtually nonexistent and dealers aren't that willing to trade. So I had to make do with what they had but I have to say this shade of Magnetic Grey (hence the truck's nickname) is growing on me. I despised it over the years but once I saw it up close in person I really enjoy the metallic sparkle when the sun hits it just right. I'm so happy to not only have the practicality of a pickup truck but also having the convenience features I've been craving. I've always wanted a vehicle with a big touchscreen infotainment system and thankfully for 2020 onward, they added that as standard. Same goes for the power driver's seat. You can find the perfect seating position this way. Even the little features get me giddy such as a sunglasses holder, the LED dome light package, the behind-the-seats storage, a power sliding rear window, LED bedlights, and automatic climate control. The only feature that it's missing is push-button start, which should be standard considering all the money they charge for these trucks! Fuel economy is pretty decent. With a full tank of gas my range was 375 miles! It's been almost two weeks since the fill-up and I'm still at more than half a tank! And that's in-town driving! That's why I don't get these complaints about fuel economy. I did notice the transmission is a bit sluggish which is a complaint that I can actually agree with. The truck has a hard time finding gears especially from second to third. It also seems to clunk when downshifting or reeving at high RPMs. This shouldn't be the case considering it's only a six-speed. They've been using this transmission for years and it's just now suffering problems. But I'm just happy it's not turbocharged or a CVT which are prone to failure. Overall, I made a wise decision. You can't go wrong with a pickup truck. I can always find time to utilize it. And it's a midsize so parking and maneuverability is pretty decent. Also, this has the highest residual value of any vehicle in the market going for it. Not to mention it looks good. This is the best looking midsize on the market which is one of the reasons so many people go for it. And it's reliable. All I have to do is routine maintenance and I'm good to go!

2 out of 5 stars, Brand New Truck with Brand New problems.
Ivan ,
SR5 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

I will say that the Toyota Tacoma Sr5 Double Cab is looks really nice. I have been told that Tacomas are trucks that are built very well and will last for years and years to come. I will say that this is the first time in my life that I went to a dealership gotten a brand new car. With that being said I am having a problem. When ever I am decelerating, the RPM goes up. Specially when gears are changing the the speed is changing from 40 to 38 or from 20 to 29. sometimes, even the speed also raises and I feel a pull and then it starts going down like normal. I too it to the dealer because I Still have warranty from factory. And then found nothing. I am in the city and I do continuous stops. It is very annoying driving like that. I also feel like I am going to hit someone if I am not being careful. At the dealership I was told that the computer did not pick anything up. And that I need to be on a look out for recalls. I made a research ( after I bought the truck) and I see Transmission and gear problems from 2016 all the way to 2020. So there is nothing yet out there for 2021. if you want to buy this truck, wait until they fix recalls and go from there. Or you'll be frustrated. ( any help on this please let me know as well. )

5 out of 5 stars, Great truck, much improved
Sam,
TRD Sport 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

This 2021 Tacoma is a wonderful truck. I had a 2018 Tacoma but was unsatisfied with the cabin noise and transmission issues of shifting all the time. This 2021 TRD sport is very quiet, audio is improved, ride is very smooth and transmission issues of shifting all the time have disappeared. Couldn't be happier with this decision. Ordered it in August and was delivered in October. Haven't found anything I dislike about this truck.

4 out of 5 stars, 1st Truck Ever
David D,
SR5 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

I have had a car my whole driving career, but getting older, and being more of an outdoor person, I wanted something higher up, off road type and not family SUV like. Compared the Ford Ranger and Tacoma, and obviously went with Tacoma. The Truck rides excellent, comfortable, enough power, tech is good, bed is just enough, does need more storage I think in the cab. The complaints about the transmission is true, it is uncoordinated but manageable. I don’t expect engine or transmission problems with Toyota’s mechanical reliability. And there has been no complaints of transmission replacement of the 2020s. I don’t like the use of a key, as I’m use to push button start, seems so 90s. Higher up trims give you a push start but even the FOB looks early 2000s. Just put 1000 miles on it and still breaking it in. I feel that this truck will last a while but understand why Toyota doesn’t put all the fancy features in it right away, to reduce problems before they really had time to test them and make sure they are good so they provide a reliable vehicle.

Toyota Tacoma vs. the competition

Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevrolet Colorado

The choice between a Tacoma and a Chevrolet Colorado — or the Colorado's mechanical twin, the GMC Canyon — is a tough one. All three midsize pickups are well matched in terms of price, features and interior space. The Colorado and Canyon are quicker in a straight line and offer a diesel engine option, while the Tacoma has a bit more inherent off-road ability. Overall, the three are so evenly matched it really comes down to a test drive to determine which fits your style.

Toyota Tacoma vs. Ford Ranger

It's much easier to crown a victor in the Tacoma versus Ford Ranger fight. There are some things we like about the Ranger, including its stout turbocharged four-cylinder engine and intuitive Sync 3 infotainment system. But the Ranger's bouncy ride was enough to make it a no-go for some of our editors. Unless you love the Ford's styling, there are a number of more suitable entries in this class.

Compare Toyota Tacoma & Ford Ranger features

Toyota Tacoma vs. Jeep Gladiator

First things first: The Jeep Gladiator is more expensive than the Tacoma, and its base trim doesn't come with a few features you might expect from a modern vehicle. But the Gladiator ends up being pleasingly upscale in its highest trim levels, and the Rubicon trim is a beast when going off-road. The Gladiator is also a little larger inside than the Tacoma, making the Jeep the superior choice for families.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
