The 2021 Toyota Tacoma is an efficient and powerful midsize pickup that’s perfect for your daily Santa Clara commute or your heavy towing jobs. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma MPG reaches 20 City/23 Highway fuel economy on its base engine, but its fuel economy ratings will vary depending on the drivetrain and engine you choose. Learn more about the Toyota Tacoma MPG with Santa Cruz Toyota below, then compare the 2021 Toyota Tacoma to the Toyota Tundra to see which pickup best fits your needs. 

Toyota Tacoma MPG by Build

There are three factors that will affect the Toyota Tacoma MPG ratings: transmission, drivetrain, and engine. Each Toyota Tacoma build will feature a combination of these three systems that will result in a different Toyota Tacoma MPG. For example, the 4×2 (2-wheel drive) drivetrains get better fuel economy than 4×4 (4-wheel drive) systems and the Tacoma 4-cylinder mpg is better than the V6, and automatic transmissions get better mileage than manual. See the Tacoma V6 MPG and the Tacoma 4-cylinder MPG below:
