The 2021 Toyota Tacoma SR5 is highly popular in the mid-size truck market with consistent high sales figures. Known for its reliability, the 2021 SR5 model maintains this reputation. I had the opportunity to test drive the SR5 4×4 Double Cab in Cement exterior color with black interior.

Driver Experience

Driving the Toyota Tacoma SR5 is enjoyable and versatile, capable of handling various terrains. The 3.5 L V6 engine provides ample power and responsive performance. It maneuvers easily through rough landscapes and offers a fuel efficiency of 20 MPG combined. Its compact size makes parking and navigating narrow roads hassle-free. I even took it for some off-roading in Sedona, finding it perfectly suited for such adventures.


The interior of the truck is spacious, offering comfort for passengers. The fabric-trimmed seats are adjustable and cozy. The vehicle features an 8-inch touchscreen and a 6-speaker sound system that delivers decent audio quality. A notable feature is the lockable storage in the driver’s side of the bed, which can serve as a cooler when needed.


The exterior of the Tacoma exudes toughness and durability. The grille, hood, and headlights blend seamlessly, giving the truck a robust appearance. The 6-foot bed provides practical and ample storage space. Additionally, the optional Trail Edition package enhances the truck’s capabilities with various features such as 16-inch TRD Off-Road wheels, lockable bed storage, unique fabric seats, and more.

Engine / Powertrain

The Tacoma SR5 is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 Direct-Injection Atkinson Cycle Engine that delivers 278 hp @ 6000 rpm/265 lb.-ft. @ 4600 rpm. Paired with a 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i), the V6 engine ensures a powerful and responsive driving experience. The 4WDemand part-time 4WD system with Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD) enhances traction and control, making it suitable for off-road driving, towing, and other utility tasks. The truck boasts a payload capacity of 1100 lbs and a towing capability of 6,400 lbs, coupled with a 21.1-gallon fuel tank for convenience.


The Toyota Tacoma SR5 comes equipped with Toyota’s suite of safety features, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and automatic high beam headlights. These features ensure a safe and secure driving experience for all occupants.


The Toyota Tacoma SR5 is a reliable and rugged truck that instills confidence in its driver. Its robust design and versatile performance make it suitable for various driving conditions, both on and off-road. With a rich history of success and a proven track record, the Tacoma SR5 is a popular choice in the mid-sized truck segment. I personally enjoyed driving this truck and would recommend it to those seeking a dependable and capable vehicle for their daily adventures.
