New Chevrolet 2019 Toyota Tacoma for Sale in Smithfield, RI
Although the Toyota Tacoma has been around since 1995, it only recently began its third generation (in 2015). This solid and deservedly popular mid-sized pickup has served as the best of both worlds for those who need some utility but also want the ride, relative fuel economy, and comfort of a daily driver. It’s back for 2019 with additional standard features, great active safety technology, and another pair of USB ports for staying connected.
With two cab choices (Access for four passengers and Double for five passengers), two bed lengths (5-foot and 6-foot), and six trim levels, the Tacoma can be configured in a multitude of ways to suit specific needs. The trim levels start with the base SR and add features as they go up through the line of SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. The engine choices are the base 2.7-liter four-cylinder (available on the two lowest trims) and a 3.5-liter V6 (optional on the two lowest trims and standard on the other four). Both engines get mated to a six-speed automatic transmission in most cases, but a six-speed manual transmission is available on the TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Pro.
Safety and Technology Features
The Toyota Tacoma is packed with active safety features, including a rearview camera, to mitigate collisions and protect occupants when a collision can’t be prevented. The standard Toyota Safety Sense package includes lane departure alert, dynamic cruise, auto high beams, and pre-collision alert with pedestrian detection and brake assist. A blind-spot monitor can also be added.
All trims get the Entune Audio communication/entertainment system, which grows in features as the trim level rises. Three USB ports – one media port and two charging ports – come standard across the trim selections, and Qi-compatible wireless device charging is included on the TRD Sport and above. The three TRD trims and the Limited have a 120-volt power outlet in the truck bed.
Comfort and Utility
From the most basic SR with 2WD to the trail-ready TRD Off-Road, the varied trim levels offer a solution for everyone, from the commuter who wants a pickup for weekend pursuits to the off-road enthusiast who likes to leave the pavement. The Off-Road trim includes specific features for tackling trails, from Multi-Terrain Select with Crawl Control (not available with manual transmission) to an electronically locking rear differential. The TRD Pro adds enhanced skid plates, upgraded shocks and rear leaf springs, and a cat-back exhaust system, with an available high-mounted Desert Air Intake for filtering out the clouds of dust you’ll kick up. To maximize creature comforts, the Limited is the way to go, with its leather upholstery, dual-zone auto climate control, power tilt/slide moonroof, and the Premium JBL version of Entune Audio, which includes navigation and the Entune App Suite.
For hauling practicality, all Tacomas have a fiber-reinforced composite bed with deck rail system and locking removable tailgate. A class IV tow hitch is included, and V6 models come with a sway control feature. The payload capacity on a properly configured ’19 Tacoma is 1,440 pounds, while the peak towing weight is 6,800 pounds.
