2022 Toyota Tacoma SR vs 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport

Serving Clarksville, IN

Thanks to the model's impressive features and capabilities, the Toyota Tacoma has been a top contender for midsize truck shoppers. For 2022, the Tacoma is offered in six trim levels: the SR, the SR5, the TRD Sport, the TRD Off-Road, the Limited, and the TRD Pro. While all trims have individualized appeal, your attention may be centered on the SR and TRD Sport trim levels. What should you know about the differences between these options?


The base SR trim level pulls 159 horsepower from its 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine. This is paired with a six-speed auto transmission. The TRD Sport, on the other hand, draws 278 horsepower from its 3.5-liter V6 engine. It has the same transmission and is also equipped with a sport suspension system. You can conveniently test drive these trims at Jeff Wyler Toyota of Clarksville to experience the difference that these powertrains will make to your time behind the wheel.


Thanks to their individualized aesthetics, you can easily differentiate the 2022 Toyota Tacoma SR from the Tacoma TRD Sport on the road. The base trim level offers 16-inch steel wheels, LED-enhanced headlights, a hexagonal grille, and a sculpted hood. It also comes with exterior features like a sliding rear window, power-adjusting side mirrors, a composite bed, and movable bed cleats. The TRD Sport has many of these features, and it adds 17-inch wheels, a raised suspension system, a hood scoop, heated mirrors, fender flares, and a power-sliding rear window.


In addition to the differences in these trim levels’ exterior features, you will find several differences in their interior and safety features. The Tacoma SR comes with standard features like a 7-inch touch display screen, a six-speaker sound system, three USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a wireless hotspot, forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. In the TRD Sport, you will also find a larger display screen, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a keyless entry, a keyless ignition, and a wireless charging pad.

** 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 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.
1. 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.
