A Comparison of 2017 Toyota Trucks


You’ve been looking at trucks, and you have narrowed it down to a Toyota. You like the 3-year/36,000-mile warranty that comes with these trucks, as well as the powerful performance and ample features. Now, you just need to decide if you want to go with the 2017 Toyota Tacoma or the 2017 Toyota Tundra. While both are excellent choices, they have some differences that you need to consider. Compare the two Toyota trucks and then select the one that is right for you.

Fuel Efficiency

While both trucks are a nice blend of performance and efficiency, the Tacoma is ahead of the Tundra in regards to gas mileage. The Tacoma gets an average of *19 mpg in the city and *24 mpg on the highway, while the Tundra gets *15 mpg in the city and *19 mpg on the highway.


Both trucks have around the same towing capacity, but their engines and horsepower are different. For the Tacoma, you can choose between an inline-4 and V6 engine, while the Tundra comes with a V8. The powerful V8 engine in the Tundra produces more horsepower than the Tacoma does.

Dimensions and Handling

The Toyota Tundra is big, bulky, and built for massive jobs, while the Tacoma is slimmer. The slim-bodied Tacoma can get in and out of tight spots easily, and it has a smaller turning radius. On the other hand, the large-bodied extended cab Tundra has extra legroom, allowing passengers to stretch out.

Passenger Space

If you like to bring all of your buddies along for the ride, you will welcome the Tundra’s seating capacity. With enough space for up to six people, you can bring your best buds along for each trip. The Tacoma is no slouch when it comes to seating, though. It can seat up to five people. So determining which one is best for you depends on how many people you intend to transport on a regular basis.
