Pricing has been announced for the 2021 Toyota Tacoma and, like the truck itself, things haven't changed all that much for the Toyota's mid-size pickup's pricing strategy. 

After $1,175 worth of destination, processing, and handling, a base 4x2 SR Access Cab 2021 Tacoma will sticker for $27,325—representing a small $100 price bump over the 2020 model. 4x4 capability adds an additional $3,075 while a new-for-2021 Trail Special Edition can be had for $35,180, throwing in special colors like Army Green and Cement, black badging, 16-inch TRD off-road wheels, Kevlar all-terrain tires, a 120-volt in-bed power outlet, lockable bed storage with a drain plug and the front grille borrowed from the Limited trim truck. Also new for 2021 is a blacked-out Nightshade Edition starting at $41,080 which is based on the $40,080 Limited and adds black 18-inch wheels, black exhaust tips, black fog light bezels and darker chrome in the grille. 

The crowd-favorite top-dog TRD Pro version, meanwhile, will require $45,250 after destination. Like its 4Runner and Tundra counterparts, the 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro gets a new Lunar Rock color which should let the off-road-ready Taco blend right in if it ever finds itself on the surface of the moon. 

2021 Toyota Tacomas of all trims gain dual-zone automatic air conditioning, provided you opt for the V6. The TRD Sport and Off-Road models receive upgraded, Remote Services-capable audio systems while Tacomas SR5-trim-and-up now come with an onboard first-aid kit.

Here's the truck's full price list. Note that the figures here do not include the aforementioned $1,175 destination charge.


Those looking for more radical updates to the Tacoma will likely have a few more years left to wait. That Toyota product plan timeline that leaked earlier this year doesn't have the truck getting a redesign until 2024. The future fourth-gen Tacoma, however, has been rumored to share a platform with the next-gen Tundra
