The Toyota Tundra or the Toyota Tacoma—Which One Works for You?


While these two pickups have a lot in common, they're still rather different. The first and most obvious difference? Size—the Toyota Tacoma is a midsize pickup truck, while the Tundra is a full-size. Each offers plenty of utility and capability, but if you need a larger vehicle for bigger jobs, the Tundra will give you that size and muscle. On the other hand, if you're looking to go off-road or do some lighter work, the versatile Tacoma is a sure-bet.

Another differentiating factor between the two Toyota pickups is power—the 2018 Toyota Tacoma has two engine options, a 159-horsepower 2.7-liter four-cylinder or an optional 278-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6; meanwhile, the 2018 Toyota Tundra features a little more muscle, with your choice of engine between a 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V8 or a 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 for ultimate power.

Since size and power are the main hairs to split between these two pickups, it stands to reason that their towing capabilities are going to differ a bit, too. While neither of them has a low towing rating, the 2018 Toyota Tundra has a higher max tow rating than the 2018 Tacoma; when properly equipped, the Tundra maxes out at over 10,000 pounds, while the Tacoma's max tow rating when properly equipped is 6,800 pounds—still powerful, but not quite like the Tundra.

In the end, the pickup truck you choose is a personal choice, but the team here at DCH Toyota City wants to help you make the best possible one.
