Toyota makes some of the best trucks on the road in the Palmdale area. What’s the difference between Tacoma and Tundra? Frontier Toyota compares the two trucks, so you can see the differences for yourself.
One main difference between Tacoma and Tundra is that the Tacoma is a smaller, lighter-duty truck with room for five passengers. The Tundra is larger with room for six adult passengers and higher capabilities. Both come in six configurations that can be further customized with genuine Toyota truck accessories to suit your Lancaster driving style.
Another big difference between Tacoma and Tundra is engine performance. The entry-level 2020 Toyota Tacoma base engine is a 3.5L V6 engine that generates 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. It has a six-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) and has a maximum towing capacity of 6,400 pounds. The 2020 Toyota Tundra base engine is a 5.7L Aluminum i-FORCE V8 engine that creates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque with a six-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). It can tow up to 10,200 pounds around San Fernando Valley.
The difference in power also makes a difference in Tundra vs. Tacoma MPG. The EPA-estimates 18 mpg city and 22 mpg highway** fuel economy for the Tacoma, and 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway** fuel economy for the Tundra.
