The 2021 Toyota Tacoma Gains Two Fancy Editions

Toyota Tacoma fans rejoice! The information about the 2021 Toyota Tacoma has finally been revealed. We have model updates, pricing information, and more. Will you be excited, or is the 2021 Toyota Tacoma already a flop?! 

Is the 2021 Toyota Tacoma a good truck? 

Yes, the 2021 Toyota Tacoma is an excellent option to buy. The Tacoma is one of the longest-lasting trucks with a high resale value, so it’s not a risky investment. However, not much is new for the 2021 model, except for the Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition, and Nightshade Edition, so it might be worth it to go for a used Toyota Tacoma instead.

But the good news is that the Toyota Tacoma price isn’t going up. Each model only costs about $100 to $300 more. Also, if you want the Trail Edition, the price starts around $35,180 for 2×4 and $38,225 for the 4×4 model. These prices include the destination fee. 

The 2021 Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition 

The Trail Edition is based on the SR5 trim, which is the base model.
