Which Engine is Best For Your Driving Needs?
If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, then it’s essential to know which engine fits your needs and lifestyle. Of course, the comfort and convenience feature factor in on your purchase of a new Toyota Tacoma. But ultimately, your engine’s performance and efficiency do more than add to your peace of mind. At Toyota of Newnan, we offer a selection of Toyota models featuring the different kinds of engines. Stop into our dealership and get behind the wheel of a new Toyota Tacoma and see which engine is right for you.
You’ll be impressed with the standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine on the 2018 Toyota Tacoma. With 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, this efficient model satisfies most family’s needs. You can tow up to 3500 pounds of payload when adequately equipped, perfect for families hauling bikes and other small gear. This economical choice paired with the automatic six-speed transmission provides smooth handling.
For increased towing capacity, upgrade to the available 3.5-liter V6 engine. This ultra-capable engine hits 278 horsepower with 265 lb-ft of torque.
