2022 Toyota Tacoma At Courvelle Toyota In Lafayette, LA 

The 2022 Toyota Tacoma is one of those trucks that is hard to fault. Affordable, capable, and as rugged as they come, the Tacoma also has a strong reputation for reliability. An awesome ride for people in Opelousas who work hard and play hard, it's still nimble enough to drive and park downtown. Toyota has been building the Tacoma in the United States since 1995 and knows exactly what Americans need from a daily-drive truck.

Old-School Engine Options

You can choose from two engines for the 2022 Toyota Tacoma: a 2.7-liter four-cylinder (rated at 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque) and a 3.5-liter V6 (rated at 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque). The Tacoma drives power to the rear wheels by default, but all-wheel drive is available for customers who need the extra traction in low-grip conditions.

The Tacoma is the only pickup truck on the current market offered with a manual transmission. There's nothing quite like messing around in the mud while handling a stick shift the old-school way. And while most people will prefer the convenience of the automatic, it's nice that Toyota is giving customers like you the option to choose.

Capable Towing and Hauling

The 2022 Tacoma can haul up to 1,440 pounds in the bed; with the available tow package, V6 models can tow up to 6,800 pounds. That's enough to handle small- to medium-sized boats and travel trailers. Plus, it's more than up to the task of rescuing less-capable vehicles that have gotten stuck in the mud.

When towing, the Tacoma's Trailer Sway control technology automatically detects instability and can, if necessary, apply brake pressure at individual wheels to avoid sway, which could lead to a nasty accident. This is a really neat feature for both novice and veteran towers alike.

Serious Off-Road Performance

If a weekend churning through mud and crawling over rocks sounds like time well spent, you should seriously consider buying the 2022 Toyota Tacoma. The Tacoma TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro, and Trail Special Edition are all designed to make child's play of off-road challenges.

Tuned by Toyota Racing Development, the TRD Off-Road feature a standard Multi-Terrain Monitor, Crawl Control technology, and electronically-controlled locking rear differential. The Trail Special Edition also features a suspension lift kit as well as an available 120-volt bed outlet to power tools or appliances.

And with the TRD Pro, there is virtually no place you won't be able to reach. It also comes with a lift kit as well as all-terrain Goodyear® tires, specially turned internal bypass FOX® shocks, and machine-forged upper control arms, all ensuring that even the roughest terrain is of no trouble to the Tacoma. Meanwhile, TRD Pro skid plates protect the underbody from the nastiest rocks.

High-Tech Safety Features

Every new Toyota Tacoma at Courvelle Toyota is equipped with standard Toyota Safety Sense P, a suite of advanced driver-assistance systems designed to help you avoid accidents. Its top feature is Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. When it detect an imminent frontal collision with another vehicle or a pedestrian, it warns you with visual and audio alerts. Should you fail to respond in time, the system can automatically apply the brakes to help mitigate or avoid the accident all together.

Toyota Safety Sense also includes other safety-enhancing features like automatic high beams, lane departure alert, and dynamic radar cruise control. This last feature is a must-have on long road trips around Louisiana. Functioning just like regular cruise control, it can also automatically slow or accelerate the Tacoma between speeds of 25-110 mph to maintain a safe distance to vehicles ahead.

Interior Comfort and Convenience

You'll love spending time inside the 2022 Toyota Tacoma. You'll even love just getting inside it thanks to the Smart Key System, which allows you to lock and unlock the car without ever having to get the key fob out of your pocket.

The latest Tacoma truck is offered with a 10-way, power-adjustable driver's seat with two-way lumbar support, providing top-notch comfort on short and long trips alike. Standard dual-zone automatic climate control ensures you don't have to fight with a passenger over the best temperature settings, while the available rear sliding window provides a nice breeze or easy access to the bed. On V6 models, the steering wheel is wrapped in leather, while on Limited models, leather upholstery and a high-end sound system give the Tacoma a genuinely premium feel.

Advanced Infotainment

All 2022 Toyota Tacoma models feature a high-resolution touch-screen infotainment system. On the base model, it runs on a 7-inch display, while all other models use an 8-inch display. Staying connected is easy thanks to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto smartphone compatibility and several USB ports. With available wireless smartphone charging and Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity, you can say goodbye to cables forever, leaving more space inside your Tacoma for the things that matter.

Another neat feature is the built-in Amazon Alexa assistant, which can not only assist you while you drive but can also connect to your home assistant - just in case you forgot to turn the lights off.
