Which trim level of the 2023 Toyota Tacoma should you drive? If you’ve got the option, we recommend taking a test drive of several models and asking a team member for more details on their differences. That’s the best way to get a good feel for your options. The second-best option is to read our comparison below, which we recommend anyway to narrow down your options a little before coming in. Visit Magnussen’s Toyota in Palo Alto, CA, when you’re ready.
Starting at the lower end, the SR is the base model and offers the basic equipment that other trim levels build from. The SR5 has more adjustable seating, fog lights, and an available Smart Key System.
The three TRD models are the best option for outdoor enthusiasts. If you’re driving on backwoods trails, gravel, dirt, sand, or water, you’ll want one of these TRD trim levels to make your life easier. The TRD Sport offers 17-inch machined alloy wheels, a Smart Key System, and an available Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) to check out the area around your truck. The TRD Off-Road brings Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control to the table. Plus, it offers a locking rear differential. The TRD Pro has unique styling features and performance upgrades, such as a TRD machine-forged upper control arm.
Lastly, we’ve got the Limited and Trail Special Edition models, two standouts on the list. The Limited is a luxury truck with a premium audio system, among other creature comforts. The Trail Special Edition has bronze-colored wheels and unique style features and sits higher on the road than the other models.
