What's New in the 2018 Toyota Tacoma

This direct comparison between the two highlights exactly what has changed between the 2018 Toyota Tacoma and the 2017 Toyota Tacoma. Let's look a little closer of the details of exactly what has changed in the 2018 Tacoma. 

The standard features of adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning, which are unavailable in the 2017 Tacoma, are part of the great addition of Toyota Safety Sense P in the 2018 Tacoma. Along with adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning, Toyota Safety Sense P gives the 2018 Tacoma features like pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking and more. 

Additionally, the new darker mesh grille in the 2018 Toyota Tacoma is just one of the great appearance changes in the Tacoma. This midsize pickup also offers an updated satin chrome grille for certain model grades and new black leather-trimmed interior. 

Finally, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma no longer has the option of a 5-speed manual transmission. The 6-speed manual transmission and automatic transmission options are still available, which means a smoother ride with the all-new Tacoma.
