New for 2019

Changes are few for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma. The center console provides two new USB charging ports, and SR trims gain privacy glass. There's also a new SX package which features blacked-out wheels and exterior trim bits. We recently got a First Look at the 2020 Tacoma, which promises to add a number of tech and refinement upgrades.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The Toyota Tacoma has two bed lengths, two cab styles, and two powertrain options, giving buyers a number of different combinations to suit their needs.

2019 Tacoma SR: Base models feature 16-inch steel wheels, swing-away exterior mirrors, sliding rear window, front engine/suspension skid plates, Class-IV towing hitch, cloth seats, tilt/telescope steering wheel, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with four speakers.

2019 Tacoma SR5: The SR5 adds variable-speed wipers, leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio and phone controls, keyless entry system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen infotainment system with six speakers, external GPS compatibility, and SiriusXM radio.

2019 Tacoma TRD Sport: Moving up to TRD Pro gives you 17-inch aluminum wheels, 120-volt deck-mounted AC power outlet, power sliding rear window, wireless charging pad, leather shift knob, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with split-screen display and HD radio.

2019 Tacoma TRD Off-Road: True to its name, the TRD Off-Road trades the Sport's 17-inch wheels for 16-inch alloy wheels with off-road tires, and adds an electronically controlled locking rear differential, a 4.2-inch multicolor information display with inclinometer in the instrument cluster.

2019 Tacoma TRD Pro: The TRD Pro adds a hood scoop, 16-inch black aluminum wheels, a TRD Pro-specific front skid plate, TRD Pro cat-back exhaust, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated black leather front seats, four-way driver's seat with lumbar support, a 4-way passenger's seat and Homelink. Automatic-equipped versions also feature a JBL audio system with six speakers and subwoofer.

2019 Tacoma Limited: This luxury-oriented trim swaps the TRD off-road equipment for 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, a 4.2-inch multicolor information display in the instrument cluster, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated leather front seats, four-way driver's seat with lumbar support, four-way passenger's seat and Homelink.

Performance and Fuel Economy

2019 Toyota Tacoma buyers have a choice of two powertrains and two transmissions; the standard engine is a 2.7-liter I-4 with 159 hp and 180 lb-ft. The six-speed manual is available on four-wheel drive models only and returns an estimated 17/21 mpg city/highway. When mated to a six-speed automatic, rear-drive models are rated at 20/23 mpg and four-wheel drive versions net 19/22 mpg.

Buyers can also spec a 2019 Tacoma with a 3.5-liter V-6 which is rated at 278 hp and 265 lb-ft. TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro models feature a six-speed manual and four-wheel drive, returning 17/20 mpg. Rear-drive models with a six-speed automatic return 19/24 mpg, and four-wheel-drive automatic models net 18/22.

Safety

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma received a rating of Good in five IIHS crash tests, missing out on a Top Safety Pick due to Marginal scores for headlights and LATCH ease of use. The Tacoma also received a front crash prevention of Superior, avoiding collisions in the 12-mph and 25-mph autobrake tests. In NHTSA crash tests NHTSA, the Crew-Cab Tacoma was rated four stars overall (out of a possible five).

In terms of active safety features, all 2019 Tacomas feature automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. All TRD variants and Limited models offer blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as options.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

Toyota offers two different sizes of the Tacoma: Access Cab with seating for four and Double Cab with room for five. In terms of interior room, Access cab offers front/rear legroom of 42.9/24.6 inches, respectively. Double Cab offers 42.9/32.6. Double Cab features short (five foot) and long-bed (six foot) variants.

Technology

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes standard with a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with four speakers, USB media port, and Siri Eyes Free voice recognition. SR5 models feature a higher resolution screen with six speakers, SiriusXM radio and external Scout GPS Link connectivity. TRD Sport and Off-Road models add a 7.0-inch touchscreen system, HD radio, satellite navigation, and Toyota's Entune App suite for online access to internet radio, Yelp, fuel, sports and traffic information. TRD Pro and Limited models feature a JBL six-speaker system with subwoofer.

What We Think

With a design dating back to 2005, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma struggles to stay competitive in a resurgent midsize truck field. In a recent four-way Comparison Test against the Chevrolet Colorado, Ford Ranger and Honda Ridgeline, we ranked the Tacoma last. We said "it looks fantastic," but "it's let down by a cramped cabin, narrow bed, grabby brakes, and an engine and transmission that work in tandem about as well as a pack of cats and dogs." And despite impressive off-road capability, the ride is punishing. We complained that it "bucks like an unbroken stallion during even the most gentle limousine stops, and its suspension is oversprung." Hopefully the refreshed 2020 model addresses some of these faults.
