For the new model year, the 2021 Tacoma is introducing a pair of new special edition packages, the TRD Sport and Off-Road trims pick up improved sound systems and dual-zone climate control will be standard equipment on any 2021 Tacoma with the available V-6 engine. Early independent reviews have praised the 2021 Tacoma for its rugged capability in almost every driving environment, its logically laid out interior controls and for its adaptable cargo bed.
