The upcoming 2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5 will debut later this year, according to several sources, with more modern styling. This model, designed in the United States, is America’s best-selling mid-size pickup truck. The third-generation Toyota Tacoma SR5 takes design cues from Toyota’s famed desert race truck.
By 2023, the successful SR5 trim level will introduce new optional packages. Tacoma will continue to offer classic trim levels as well, along with the special editions. The sales will begin this summer and here’s everything you need to know.
Toyota Tacoma SR5 Exterior Design
In comparison to the previous SR5 version, the new 2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5 appears to be more appealing. This package includes numerous tweaks that give it a more distinctive appearance. First and foremost, the new Toyota SR5 and the Toyota TRD Off-Road have a lot of similarities. In any case, there are a few distinctions to be made.
The SR5 has a longer bed, although the TRD Off-Road is wider and offers more cabin room. In addition, the SR5 has two package options, but the TRD has four. The next SR5 will be available with a Chrome Package and the new-to-SR5 SX Package for the first time.
In the forthcoming 2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5, Toyota will also make some interior tweaks and upgrades. Expect a complete revamp, based on what we’ve heard. This means Toyota will add more premium materials and a bigger 8-inch infotainment screen. The next model will receive new infotainment, along with the Wi-Fi hotspot, new Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and more.
Buyers can also expect modern products such as wireless smartphone connectivity and wireless charging. In terms of space, thanks to the new architecture, two cab options are expected to give more space for passengers, particularly for the rear passengers.
The 2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5 comes with two powertrain options. The base 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine with 160 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque is available as standard. A more powerful 3.5-liter V6 with Toyota’s newest VVT-iW technology is also available.
The V6 gasoline engine is able to produce 280 horsepower and a torque of 265 lb-ft. A 6-speed automatic transmission is available with both engine options. The optional V6 can, however, be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission as well. A towing capacity of almost 7,000 pounds is more than enough for this mid-size pickup truck.
2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5 Price, Release Date
The next 2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5 is expected to hit the market later this year. Compared to the ordinary model, the SR5 variant comes with more off-road features, making this truck truly distinctive.
The standard model starts at around $28,000, while the SR5 variant costs slightly above $30k. The SR5 stands for “Sports Rally 5” which indicates additional sportiness and much more. As we said, this model is similar to the TRD Off-Road trim level, so make your choice.
