Take the Toyota Tacoma Off-Road With Ease

Built for light-duty driving, the Toyota Tacoma pickup truck gives drivers in Kalamazoo lots of reasons to plan off-road trips. We at Metro Toyota offer a full-size cabin for this capable model that's ready to roll on unpaved trails. The TRD Pro and TRD Sport are some of the latest trims that clients will find at our dealership near Battle Creek.

Performance and Off-Road Features

Engineered to burn unleaded gasoline based on the Atkinson cycle, a V6 engine block is available in the Tacoma. Displacing up to 3.5-liter on each stroke, this powertrain also utilizes several other signature combustion technologies, such as VVT-iW and VVT-i. The six-cylinder propulsion system has a peak towing rating of just less than 7,000 pounds. You can pair the V6 powertrain with an electronically controlled gearbox that creates six different gear speeds. A rear-wheel-drive is compatible with the automatic transmission. You can also replace the RWD with the 4WDemand system for full-time engagement of all wheels. A transfer case supplements this signature 4WD system, which also comes with an automatic limited-slip differential.

When equipped with such robust hardware, this Toyota pickup truck is at low risk of getting stuck on rough trails. Active Traction Control is another technology that maximizes off-road stability. Additionally, the Crawl Control lets the Tacoma roll over rocks and other hard particles on unpaved paths. You can further take advantage of the Multi-Terrain Select for your off-road escapades in Portage, MI. This signature technology is optimized to work with the all-terrain tires, which have the patented Kevlar composition for extra resistance against punctures. The Hill Start Assist generates a good boost on steep slopes. When fitted with the Bilstein shock absorbers, the Tacoma survives beatings from harsh surfaces.

Interior Creature Comforts

This light-duty Toyota truck also has a premium cabin with intelligent electronic amenities, such as the Dynamic Navigation system, with an eight-inch monitor. Using a touch-sensitive interface, you can access updated maps and many other services, including the Dynamic POI Search and Remote Connect. SiriusXM All Access Radio could be played by the JBL audio system. You may also ask Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant for extra entertainment and travel cues.
