2019 Toyota Tacoma review: Our expert's take

Although not quite an evolution, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro off-road trim level will have a new look and some interesting changes. It hits dealerships in fall 2018 and competes with the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.

The 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro is quite similar to the 2018 version, but it now shares a few upgraded styling features with the Tundra and 4Runner TRD Pro. What are those shared features? The TRD logo on the new aluminum front skid plate,  three distinct colors (Super White, Midnight Black Metallic and Voodoo Blue), similar upgraded suspensions and the Toyota Star Safety System as standard. The Star Safety System includes stability and traction control, an anti-lock brake system, brake-force distribution and smart-stop technology.

The Tacoma and Tundra will also come standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense P, which includes a precollision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, sway control, auto high beams and adaptive cruise control.

A new TRD desert air intake (also called a snorkel) is at the top of the list of new features available for the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro. It’s designed to provide the Tacoma’s 3.5-liter V-6 with cleaner air on dusty trails or protection against water ingestion during stream crossings.

Toyota enthusiasts will recognize the 2.5-inch-diameter retuned high-performance Fox shocks, taller front coils and softer rear leaf springs. The front springs offer about an inch more ride height and the rears springs deliver a touch more wheel travel. Additionally, the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro offers black alloy wheels and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Kevlar All-Terrain tires.

All 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro models offer a choice between a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, the latter of which allows for the inclusion of Toyota’s unique Crawl Control technology that provides computer-controlled multiple-speed trail ascent or descent. Of course, the four Fox shock absorbers are key to the TRD Pro’s performance. They have eight separate bypass zones for the front shocks (five compression and three rebound) and 11 bypass zones for the rear (seven compression and four rebound). Finally, the rear Fox shocks have a small 2-inch remote reservoir to help with cooling and performance.

Other standard features on the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro include the newest version of the Entune Premium JBL Audio system with a subwoofer amplifier and integrated navigation and apps suite. Inside, the TRD Pro has unique floormats and leather-trimmed seats as well as TRD Pro logos.

Disappointing Performance

When I bought my 2020 Tacoma V6 (3.5L) 4x4 in December 2019 I quickly noticed the truck lacks low end torque. The truck struggles accelerating uphill, especially up steep mountain roads and often downshifts into 4th gear, or even down to 3rd gear. I’ve installed 4:88 gears and Tuned the the vehicle which helped considerably, yet I’m constantly wanting more power than the engine can provide. Overall I’m a bit disappointed with the performance from the engine, constant up shifting and down shifting from the transmission, and the road noise inside the cabin of the truck. Toyota definitely missed the mark on this one!

5.0

Excellent truck with excellent gas mileage

I fit real well in this truck . I like the gas mileage and it is awesome. The color fits me and l like 4 wheel drive. The truck works good in the snow and handles extremely well.
