When it comes to choosing the right 2020 Toyota Tacoma for driving in Normal or Morton, you need options.

Compare the Tacoma SR5 vs. TRD with Sam Leman Toyota Bloomington to see which is a better fit for your driving needs. 

SR5 vs. TRD Sport: Power

Weighing the Tacoma SR5 vs. TRD on power will depend on which engine you’re looking at. The SR5 starts with a 159-hp four-cylinder as standard compared to the 278-hp V6 of the TRD Sport (but if you want that level of power on the SR5, you just need to upgrade the engine). This is the power you need to cross rugged terrain in rough conditions, on-road and off. What makes the Tacoma SR5 vs. TRD Sport different is their suspension systems, giving the TRD its extra off-road boost.

Both trucks are equipped with coil-spring double-wishbone front suspension and stabilizer bar; leaf spring rear suspension with staggered outboard-mounted gas shock absorbers and stabilizer bar. The TRD Sport also comes with TRD-tuned off-road suspension with Bilstein® shocks.
