For the new, 2023 model year, the Toyota Tacoma has received the Chrome Package and the SX Package.
Two new packages for the 2023 Toyota Tacoma V6-powered SR5 models are offered now. The SX Package is available in Access Cab or Double Cab 4×2 and 4×4 trucks. It features black details: overfenders, 16-inch wheels, badging, outer mirrors, lug nuts, plus a unique bed graphic, Toyota says.
The Chrome Package comes for the Double Cab variant with a 5-foot bed in either 4×2 or 4×4. It includes chrome-finished elements, such as 18-inch alloy wheels, outer door handles, exhaust tips, and a tailgate insert. In the cabin, the package features a leather-wrapped shift knob.
In total, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma offers 6 trim levels (SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, TRD Pro), Nightshade Edition and Trail Edition, as well as 34 configurations based on 2 cab types.
Powertrain choices include a standard 2.7-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine with VVT-i that produces 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of peak torque, and a 3.5-liter V6 employing Toyota’s VVT-iW technology and Atkinson-cycle combustion. The latter delivers 278 hp and 265 lb-ft.
Both engines are mated to a 6-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). The V6 can also operate in pair with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
