The Toyota Tacoma—or Taco as it called affectionately by enthusiasts—is arguably the most influential midsize pickup ever designed. There are many loyal Tacoma drivers who love it for practical purposes but also a legion of fans who adore it for what it can accomplish off the beaten path. The biggest updates for the 2022 Toyota Tacoma now available at Taylor Toyota of Hermitage are an enhanced suspension and increased ride height for the Trail Edition and TRD Pro models. The Trail Edition, which was introduced last model year as a limited special edition, is now a core trim level, and that brings the offerings up to eight: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, Trail Edition, TRD Off-Road, Limited, Nightshade and TRD Pro.
The Access Cab is a two-door cab paired with a 6-foot bed. The Double Cab is a four-door cab that is available with either a 5-foot or 6-foot bed. The model with the smaller cab has a wheelbase that measures 127 inches and an overall length of 212 inches, which is approximately 17.7 feet. The Double Cab with the 5-foot bed is the same, but with the 6-foot bed, the Tacoma has a 141-inch wheelbase and measures 226 inches in length—about 18.8 feet. The base model comes with 16-inch steel wheels, but 16- to 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are available in a variety of finishes and designs.
The 2022 Toyota Tacoma in Hermitage is available in two cab styles: Access Cab and Double Cab. The Access Cab is the smaller of the two options and can seat up to four. The Double Cab is larger and can seat up to five. An important consideration beyond just seating capacity is interior spaciousness. The Access Cab affords 40 inches of front headroom, 43 inches of front legroom and 25 inches of rear legroom. The Double Cab is similar but affords 33 inches of rear legroom, which makes it the more practical option if you intend to have adult passengers in the rear seat often.
Drivers in Hermitage Pennsylvania have the option of either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive with their 2022 Toyota Tacoma. With most trim levels, including the off-road-oriented models, rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is optional. The exception is the Tacoma Trail Edition, which features four-wheel drive as standard equipment. The four-wheel-drive system available for the Tacoma is a part-time system with low-range gearing.
Toyota offers two powertrains for the 2022 Toyota Tacoma in Hermitage. The SR and SR5 are designed to be as affordable as possible and deliver good fuel performance for a midsize pickup. These models therefore have a 2.7L four-cylinder that makes 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. All other models have a beefier 3.5L V6 that makes 278 hp and 265 lb.-ft. Whether you opt for the V6 or four-cylinder, you have the option of either a six-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. Note that the V6 is available as an option with the SR and SR5. Trailering equipment is available, and with the V6, the Tacoma can tow as much as 6,800 pounds.
