If you’ve been looking around online for evidence of a promising pickup that’s new for 2022, then look no further. While we might be a bit biased here at Nelson Toyota, as far as mid-sized trucks go, the all-new 2022 Tacoma will have all your pickup needs taken care of – and then some. With exceptional towing and payload capabilities for its size, outstanding powertrain options, and a luxury design – not to mention the terrain-tackling TRD Pro line – the Tacoma is the perfect pickup truck for life in Nelson, B.C.
As the most popular mid-size pickup truck in its segment, the Tacoma offers impressive power and off-roading capabilities. Both the Tacoma Trail Edition and TRD Pro are great for leading the road less travelled, but they are designed for two types of truck lovers in mind. The updated Trail Edition accommodates outdoor lifestyles and the types of off-road demands that come with them. The truck’s smart storage system, in-bed cooler, and power outlet are perfect for activities like camping, family road trips, and tailgating.
The new TRD Pro is the better choice when off-roading is the adventure in itself. The TRD Pro confidently takes on challenging terrain thanks to the TRD-tuned suspension, aggressive approach, departure, and break-over angles; plus, a Multi-Terrain Monitor, which uses a host of camera views to display the driver’s surroundings and trail obstacles on the vehicle’s multimedia screen.
Even with all these exciting off-roading features, we can’t forget Tacoma’s impressive towing capacity of up to 6,500 lbs. - not to mention an available towing package that includes a Class IV hitch, 7-pin wire harness, and Trailer Sway Control. The Tacoma also offers a pair of engine options that include a standard 159-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine and the popular 278-hp 3.5-liter V-6 power core. These mighty powertrains are available with a six-speed automatic transmission and a six-speed manual gearbox.
If you’re a truck lover who demands luxury and style as much as power and functionality, you’ll love the Tacoma’s new Electric Lime TRD Pro models and Lunar Rock Tacoma Trail Edition. Additionally, there are several appearance packages such as the Utility Package, SX Package, SR5 Appearance Package, and the Nightshade Special Edition Package.
The Tacoma’s cabin is roomy, comfortable and keeps all your convenience and infotainment controls within arm's reach, thanks to a clean, uncluttered layout. The new Tacoma trim also offers a driver's side compartment that doubles as a cooler, allowing you to enjoy your off-road excursions to the fullest. Thanks to Toyota Connected Services, the Tacoma makes it easy to stay connected with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, plus a suite of smart technologies that help keep you safe, informed and simplify your everyday life. Stay in touch with your vehicle whether you are in or out of the driver’s seat!
All Tacoma models also come standard with Toyota Safety Sense P, which features a suite of active-safety technologies that ensure your safety on your journey. Enjoy peace of mind with features like Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (High Speed), and Automatic High Beams.
Armed with an affordable price tag, the 2022 Toyota Tacoma won’t break the bank for car shoppers in need of a hard-working pickup truck. Ready to take one out for a test drive? Contact us at Nelson Toyota, and any one of our sales reps will be happy to set you up!
