What's New for 2013:

  • Standard Display Audio system
  • Standard daytime running lights
  • Luxury-oriented Limited package

Exterior Features
Tacoma buyers face variety in the form of regular, extended (Access Cab), and crew cab (Double Cab) styles, and a choice between regular or long cargo boxes. PreRunner models feature 2-wheel drive (2WD) combined with the raised suspension, skid plates, and appearance of a 4-wheel-drive (4WD) truck. Tacoma T/X models are serious off-road trucks, while the Tacoma X-Runner is a performance pickup for the street.

Interior Features
Every 2013 Toyota Tacoma is equipped with air conditioning, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, Display Audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, and fabric seats.

Optional Features
In addition to a wide range of dealer-installed accessories, the Tacoma is available with factory upgrades dependent on the trim selected. Highlights include the SR5 package (power windows, locks, mirrors, cruise control, reversing camera, upgraded interior and exterior trim); TRD Sport package (upgraded suspension, aluminum wheels, Homelink universal remote, special graphics); and the TRD Off-Road package (off-road suspension, skid plates, locking rear differential). Additionally, a JBL premium sound system and a navigation system are available.

Under the Hood
The 2013 Tacoma is equipped with one of two engines, depending on cab style and model. One is a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder connected to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. All regular cab and most Access Cab models have this engine, which can be paired with an optional 4WD system.

The second engine choice is a 4.0-liter V-6 equipped with a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. Some Access Cab and most Double Cab models have this engine, and the Tacoma X-Runner sport truck features it exclusively. A 4WD system is available with the V-6.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Toyota Tacoma are:

  • Tacoma 2WD 4-cyl. with manual transmission: 21/25/23 mpg (city/hwy./combined)
  • Tacoma 2WD 4-cyl. with automatic transmission: 19/24/21 mpg
  • Tacoma 2WD 6-cyl. with manual transmission: 16/21/18 mpg

  • Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl. with manual transmission: 16/19/17 mpg
  • Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl. with automatic transmission: 16/21/18 mpg

Safety
The 2013 Tacoma is equipped with 6 air bags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, traction and stability control, and Smart Stop technology that is designed to prevent acceleration when the brake pedal is depressed. Trailer sway control, hill-start assist, downhill assist control, and a reversing camera are optional.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has performed crash tests on the Tacoma Double Cab model, which gets an overall rating of 4 stars (out of 5), but in the frontal impact test, front passenger protection is rated 3 stars. In crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Tacoma receives the highest rating of \"Good\" in all assessments except roof crush strength, for which the truck is rated \"Marginal.\"
