When the trail gets challenging, Tacoma TRD Off-Road's Crawl Control (CRAWL) is here to help you conquer your off-road adventure. This advanced system automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings so you can keep your focus on navigating across difficult terrain.
Don't let a patch of knee-deep sand give you the slip. Tacoma TRD Off-Road's standard electronically controlled locking rear differential distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels so they move at the same speed, providing more grip in low-traction conditions.
Tacoma's Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) helps you safely get up those hills. This technology helps minimize Tacoma from rolling backward when you move your foot from the brake to the gas pedal, so you can move upward with confidence. (HAC not available on TRD Off-Road 4WD M/T.)
Tacoma's three-piece rear bumper was designed for maximum durability and easier maintenance. The available 4-/7-pin connector has been relocated to inside the bumper itself, helping protect the wiring from exposure to weather and aggressive terrain.
Let's light it up. Available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) add extra safety and style to Tacoma's legendary toughness, helping you see and be seen, day or night. Standard projector-beam headlights shine brightly, helping you get a better nighttime view of the road ahead.
It's time to boost your off-road cred. The tailgate features an embossed Tacoma logo, letting everyone know that this truck was built to lead the pack.
Tacoma is built to handle the demands of a hard-charging weekend. Its interior features soft-touch materials to boost your comfort. And Tacoma Limited adds leather-trimmed seating surfaces for the ultimate in tough sophistication.

An available 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) helps you keep an eye on the information you want. Customize it to show your mpg, current song selection, individual tire pressure,
Wild on the outside. Calm on the inside. Smart engineering helps reduce outside noise, giving Tacoma a refined and quiet cabin. An advanced cab-to-bed seal, a front chin spoiler and better aerodynamic performance help smooth out the airflow, helping reduce wind noise too.
The available Entune™ Audio system lets you access your phone, apps, traffic and weather through its 7-in. touch-screen. Wirelessly stream your favorite playlist and crank it up through the available JBL® amplifier and premium speakers. And when it's time to get back to the city, available Integrated Navigation is ready to help show you the way home.
Get ready to capture all the action. Tacoma comes standard with an integrated GoPro® mount on the windshield so you and your crew can relive all your favorite off-road adventures. GoPro® camera not included.
Considering all the gear you're loading into your Tacoma, the last thing you need to worry about is finding a cable to charge your smartphone. Good thing Tacoma is available with Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging. Just place your Qi-compatible device on top of the nonslip surface to help keep it charged up and ready to go.
High tech meets high performance. Tacoma's available Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V6 with direct injection is the perfect blend of efficiency and power, giving you more of everything you want.
High-strength steel is used in the construction of every 2018 Tacoma, helping ensure it delivers the toughness you expect. Stronger and lighter than conventional steel, this hot-stamped, high-strength alloy helps optimize safety and performance.
Tacoma TRD Off-Road features Multi-terrain Select. With five modes to choose from, this system helps regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and traction control. When combined with standard Goodyear Wrangler® tires with tough Kevlar® construction, Multi-terrain Select helps improve traction dramatically, meaning you can get back to the fun more quickly.
When you're towing, sometimes the wind kicks up or a load shifts, causing the trailer to sway. Included with Tacoma's available Tow Package, Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) applies brake pressure at individual wheels and manages engine torque to help maintain control of the trailer.
Dirt bikes. Side-by-sides. Whatever toys you've got, Tacoma's got the power to bring 'em along. The powerful 3.5-liter V6 and available Tow Package help this truck tow up to 6800 lbs. or carry a payload of up to 1440 lbs. So strap it down, hitch it up and roll out-your ultimate weekend starts here.
When you got it, flaunt it. Inspired by the iconic Toyota trucks of the past, this blackout heritage grille reminds everyone why Toyota is still king of the off-road.
This is the bark behind the powerful V6 bite. This cat-back exhaust adds a raspy exhaust note that announces your arrival. Constructed from 304 stainless steel, its precise CNC mandrel bends help maximize efficiency. Helping finish off the package is a chrome-plated, dual-walled tip with embossed TRD logo.
When the desert calls, you want to bring your gear along for the ride. That's why Tacoma's bed comes standard with an innovative deck rail system. With four heavy-duty adjustable tie-down cleats, you've got the strength and adjustability you need to keep your cargo securely strapped down.
Every Tacoma comes standard with our Star Safety System™, an advanced integration of safety technologies including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you, the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) can help you mitigate or avoid a potential collision. If the system determines that a frontal collision is likely, it prompts you to take action using audio and visual alerts. If you notice the potential collision and apply the brakes, PCS w/PD may apply additional force using Brake Assist (BA). If you don't brake in time, it may automatically apply the brakes to reduce your speed, helping to minimize the likelihood of a frontal collision or reduce its severity.
Under certain circumstances, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) is designed to detect lane departure on roads with clear markings. LDA only activates when you're traveling at a speed of 32 mph or faster. When you hear and see the alert, after carefully checking the road around you, you should safely direct your vehicle back to the center of your lane.
Automatic High Beams (AHB) are a safety system designed to help you see more clearly at night-without blinding other drivers. Designed to activate at speeds above 25 mph, AHB rely on an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggle between high and low beams accordingly to provide the appropriate amount of light. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.
Intended for highways and similar to "constant speed" cruise control, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which adjusts your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera designed to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC will automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes are applied. When there's no longer a vehicle driving slower than your set speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate and regular cruise control will resume.
When backing up on a trail-or just backing out of your driveway-you need to see what's behind you. The standard backup camera mounted in Tacoma's tailgate handle helps you see an image of what the camera detects behind you on the available 7-in. high-resolution display.
When Tacoma's available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate outside mirror to alert you to the presence of the vehicle, helping you to determine when it's safe to change lanes. And when you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) provides an audible indicator to warn you of approaching vehicles.
Our advanced Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) comes standard on every Tacoma. Designed to monitor tire pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become underinflated. TRD and Limited grades feature an individual tire location report via the 4.2-in. MID. It's one more way Tacoma gives you peace of mind wherever the rubber meets the road.
