Drivers near Trevose, Bensalem, and Philadelphia interested in seeing just how far they can go with this capable midsize pickup can start by reading our helpful Toyota Tacoma MPG review before scheduling a test drive at Faulkner Toyota Trevose.
Toyota Tacoma Performance & Fuel-Saving Technology
Able to go where similar pickup models would call it quits, the Toyota Tacoma features smart 4×4 technology that works in perfect harmony with its standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine. This sporty engine includes Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) to achieve greater efficiency when traveling at low RPMs.
Those searching for extra oomph can opt for the Tacoma’s larger 3.5L V6 Atkinson-cycle engine which also employs VVT-i technology. The result is a remarkable 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque to help you tackle sand, rock, and steep mountain paths without issue.
Each engine is mated to a 6-speed ECT-i automatic transmission which seamlessly sends the perfect level of torque power to each wheel to help keep you on a level track.
When all this technology and engineering comes together, the result is a midsize truck that weighs in at just over two tons. Depending on which of its six trim levels you choose, you’ll still find it doesn’t give up on its fuel-sipping habits.
How Can I Maximize my Toyota Tacoma’s MPG Rating?
Despite its ability to clock more miles on the odometer while minimizing your need to stop at the pump, there are still a few healthy strategies you can adopt as a driver to maintain fuel-economy, including:
Scheduling Regular Maintenance
To ensure your engine runs properly while minimizing the risk of premature wear, it’s recommended you change your truck’s oil and filter every 5,000-7,000 miles.
If you regularly haul heavy loads or put extra burden on your engine system this might increase the frequency. In this situation, it’s best to consult with one of our Toyota certified technicians on best practices.
Maintaining Your Tire’s PSI Levels
Not only can over/under-inflated tires make steering and braking more difficult, but it also puts extra burden on your engine system. Over time, this can result in a noticeable drop in fuel-efficiency.
We advise at least once per month to check your tire’s PSI pressure and visually inspect for any signs of wear or damage along the sidewalls and treads.
Limit Towing Heavy Weight
Consistently towing or carrying heavy loads in the truck bed puts extra pressure on your vehicle’s system.
