In the pickup truck market, there are two main body styles you need to take into consideration during the buying process; light-duty and heavy-duty. Though both are built with largely the same characteristics (high strength body frames, durable beds, interior tech innovation, etc.) onboard, they differ greatly in the performance and precision that they bring to the table. The Toyota model line is home to the highest performing trucks in their respective classes in the 2017 Toyota Tundra and 2017 Toyota Tacoma. Both are available here at Toyota Palo Alto, so come on in and see which one is best for your needs!

Though in the tech world, the Tundra and Tacoma are largely the same – both feature a high-class EnTune™ infotainment system with Integrated Navigation and premium audio – they differ greatly in the amount of power and versatility you’ll be treated to. Let’s see how both these pickups match up below!
|2017 Tundra||vs||2017 Tacoma|

Each pickup has been awarded a 4-star overall NHTSA safety rating, and thanks to an available four-wheel drive system present on both models, your drive is more controlling than most other competitors on the road can match.
