Serving Enid, OK

Toyota is back in the headlines and for excellent reasons. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma and 2021 Toyota Tundra are among some of the hottest pickups on the market today. Each of these trucks has a powerful engine, advanced technology, and sufficient amounts of comfort. Let's take a look at how these vehicles stack up against each other.


The 2021 Toyota Tacoma works excellent on the highway and is a standout on off-road surfaces. Buyers can expect a direct-injected engine that's 3.5 liters in size. When combined with the brand's Tow Package, this engine can tow as much as 6,800 pounds. Trail-Sway Control is built-in, and six-speed manual transmission is available. This V6 will produce 278 ponies and 265 pound-feet. There's also a 2.7-liter engine that delivers 159 ponies and 180 pound-feet. Four-wheel drive is also available.

The 2021 Toyota Tundra starts by offering a 5.7-liter V8 that delivers 381 ponies and 401 pound-feet. The four-wheel-drive system is equipped with Active Traction Control for low-traction surfaces. Stopping power is spectacular via the truck's large brakes. The TRD Pro is the more extreme model as it's purposely designed for tackling rough terrain.


The new Tacoma has a heavily contoured exterior. Strong body lines are flowing from front to rear without any breaks. The truck's large grille will come in diverse styles per trim level. Standard and short beds are available as well as two-and four-door models. The Tacoma is also equipped with Projector-Beam LEDs. The new Tundra stands out in the looks department. This truck's exterior is bold and beautiful with its epic proportions. There's a good mixture of elegance and ruggedness thanks to its sleek lines and muscular attributes. Its well-sculpted hood is unique, and the front grille is massive in size.


The 2021 Tacoma brings a lot to the table, from a refined cabin to advanced safety features. Soft-touch materials are built-in, including leather-trimmed seats. Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control is available, as well as a powered rear window. There's also Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Push Button Start. The 2021 Tundra can seat five people in its cabin. Tech advancements are incorporated into the fold, such as Android Auto, Google Assistant, and Apple CarPlay. The truck's 8.0-inch multimedia display is integrated with navigation. There's also a large center console and fold-up rear seats.

* Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. "Added vehicle equipment" includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo. [Calculated with the new SAE J2807 method.] Installation of a tow hitch receiver or other accessories located near the rear bumper or side-door kick sensors may require disabling or removing the kick sensor, and the sensor operation setting in your vehicle should be turned off. See Owner's Manual for limitations.
** Payload Capacity is the calculation of GVWR minus curb weight and should be used for comparison purposes only. The maximum amount of passenger and cargo weight your vehicle can carry is the Load Carrying Capacity indicated on the label(s) on the driver's doorjamb.
