Engineered for the full-size segment, the 2023 Toyota Tundra offers the twin-turbocharged i-FORCE engine and a hybrid powertrain with the i-FORCE MAX design. This powerful pickup truck is available with a bed that measures up to 8.1 feet long. Designed for the midsize niche, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma offers 2.7-L and 3.5-L engines with normal aspiration.
Standard on the 2023 Toyota Tundra, the 3.4-liter engine generates just under 360 net horsepower. Adopting the corporate i-FORCE engineering, this twin-turbocharged powertrain spits out slightly over 405 pound-feet of torque. When installed on mid-level and high-end trims, the six-cylinder powerhouse maximizes output at nearly 390 hp and 480 lb-ft. Employing a parallel-hybrid configuration, the i-FORCE MAX engine delivers almost 440 hp and just over 580 lb-ft. Thanks to such an electrified propulsion system, this full-size Toyota pickup truck tows 12,000 pounds. You can also haul a payload of slightly over 1,900 pounds with the hybrid system. Equipped with a 3.5-L engine with natural aspiration, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma tows 6,800 lb. and hauls 1,155 lb. Official specifications of the V-6 engine include 278 hp and 265 lb-ft. The base trim gets 159 hp and 180 lb-ft from a 2.7-L, four-cylinder engine. A six-speed automatic transmission is installed on most of the 2023 Tacoma trims. Alternatively, a six-speed manual gearbox is available for more conventional handling. You’ll get a 10-speed automatic transmission on every 2023 Tundra model. This gearbox operates on the driver-activated Sequential Shift Logic for enhanced performance.
Set on the 2023 Toyota Tundra’s center console, the updated Multi-Terrain Select ensures a smooth ride on off-road trails. You can manually activate modes that improve traction on mud, sand, or rocks. Models equipped with the i-FORCE engine can also operate on the all-new Mogul Mode. By contrast, the Auto Mode from the M-TS is only compatible with the hybrid powertrain. With mechanical assistance from the upgraded Crawl Control, this full-size Toyota pickup truck precisely navigates tough terrains. By evenly distributing power to the rear wheels, an electronically locked differential reduces the risk of slipping on rugged courses. Such a traction-boosting component is available for the 2023 Toyota Tacoma. When tackling off-road trails with the Tacoma, you can also choose the High Mode for the all-new air suspension with the Load-Leveling Rear Height Control technology. Metal skid plates are available for both Toyota pickup trucks.
The 2023 Toyota Tundra has deck rails with adjustable and fixed points for attaching certain cargo. You can easily open the all-new tailgate by bumping into the driver’s side taillights. Similarly, the signature BedStep gives you some natural leverage for jumping into the bed. This full-size Toyota truck has a bed that’s reinforced with aluminum. Similarly, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma’s bed has a fiber-reinforced composition. Both vehicles take advantage of the Sheet-Molded Composite architecture for the bed. Generating 400 W of instant power on the go, an AC outlet is available on both trucks.
