When it comes to selecting a capable and powerful heavy-duty pickup for your heaviest towing and hauling tasks, there are any number of options available in Portsmouth to choose from. But when you're searching for a compact pickup that's easy to drive, eye-catching on the road, and loaded with the performance and tech features you want, your range of options narrows to one incredible vehicle - the 2021 Toyota Tacoma. At Toyota of Portsmouth, the Tacoma has long been a fan favorite among our staff and customers, and we're excited to introduce you to the latest, 2021 model year.



What's New for the 2021 Toyota Tacoma?

A continuation of the perennially popular pickup's third generation, the 2021 model continues to deliver the qualities and performance traits that have driven people to it since its first debut in 1995. For 2021, the Tacoma doesn't undergo any major performance or appearance updates, but it does introduce new options and new standard features. The complete list of 2021 updates includes:

  • The addition of two special packages. Available on most trims, the Tacoma Trail Edition and Tacoma Nightshade Special Edition add a number of upgrades to your favorite trim, most of which are cosmetic.
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control is now standard on any Tacoma model equipped with a V6 engine.
  • Upgraded audio systems are now standard on select trims.


You'll enjoy poised handling and responsive steering in the 2021 Toyota Tacoma. Its leaf-sprung solid rear axle and independent front suspension keep it composed on paved roads. Tacoma's four-wheel drive will get you through the worst of a winter in New England and up rugged trails in the Northeast. TRD trims are some of the best off-roaders in the class, with active traction control, an electronic locking rear differential, a TRD-tuned suspension, Bilstein shock absorbers and 9.4 inches of ground clearance to help you traverse tough trails. The Tacoma has two available engines, including:

  • A 159-horsepower four-cylinder engine
  • A 278-horsepower V6 engine
With the standard four-cylinder engine, the Tacoma can get 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. People in Exeter who want a work truck will prefer the available V6 engine, which enables the Tacoma to tow up to 6,800 pounds and haul a payload of up to 1,620 pounds. Available Hill Start Assist Control and Crawl control allow you to navigate the Tacoma through difficult landscapes or weather conditions.


The 2021 Toyota Tacoma has a durable interior that can withstand the mud, snow, sand, or rocks you may track in. But it also has available soft-touch, upscale materials for taking it out on the town. Access Cab models seat four people, while the Double Cab seats five. Two bed sizes are available for payload versatility, including a 5-foot bed and a 6-foot-1-inch bed. Drivers in Hampton will like the Tacoma's upgraded infotainment system, which has a bigger, 7-inch touch screen, intuitively laid-out controls, and crisp graphics. Other standard amenities in the new Tacoma include:

  • A 4.2-inch instrument cluster display
  • Bluetooth
  • Voice recognition
  • A six-speaker stereo
Optional features in the new Tacoma include a moonroof, wireless device charging, leather upholstery, and a navigation system.


You'll feel secure in the 2021 Toyota Tacoma, which earned four stars in safety tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Portsmouth drivers will appreciate its multitude of driver assistance features, which include:

  • Lane departure warning
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • A rearview camera
