The midsize pickup built for life in the Kootenays is here! The 2021 Toyota Tacoma is more rugged and durable than ever before, and perfectly balances modern new features with the classic capabilities that Taco-owners from Nelson and beyond have come to love. New in 2021, Taco is sporting an exciting new trim - the Tacoma Trail Edition. This very limited-run model boasts unique TRD-style wheels and all terrain tires, black accents, a new grille and cool utility features like a lockable storage unit and 120-volt outlet in the cargo bed.
One thing that makes the Toyota Tacoma BC’s favourite truck year after year is how much versatility it offers for drivers across the Kootenays. TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro models offer some of the best off-roading skills of any pickup on the road, while responsive steering helps you feel in control no matter where your Taco takes you. This year, Tacoma can tow an extra 300-lbs thanks to added power in its competent V-6 engine, bringing its max towing capacity to 6,800 pounds - more than enough to haul your ATV, boat or trailer through the mountains with ease. Even with all that power and off-roading prowess, this midsize pickup feels sleek and manageable on city roads, making it adaptable for life on the West Coast.
Every 2021 Tacoma model includes a vibrant in-dash touchscreen display, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Drivers will have access to all of their favourite smartphone apps and services, including music, weather, traffic information, navigation (including Google Maps), messaging services and much more. TRD Sport, Off Road and Limited models take things a step further with Toyota Connected Services, which offers advanced services like Remote Connect, Service Connect, Destination Assist, premium audio and more. USB and wireless charging ports located throughout the cabin help ensure that your devices always stay fully charged.
2021 Toyota Tacoma has the most standard driver-assist technology in its class. Thanks to Toyota Safety Sense, Taco drivers can look forward to a plethora of intelligent safety features designed to keep drivers, passengers and pedestrians safer on BC roads, including Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Dynamic Radar Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Limited Slip Differential (perfect for driving on rugged mountain terrain!), Vehicle Stability Control and so much more. Drive with confidence through British Columbia’s unique landscape knowing that your Tacoma is working hard to keep you safe.
“We've driven the Tacoma TRD Pro out west and found its lifted suspension, beefy shock absorbers, and gnarly tires made it one of the best trucks for off-roading.”
