There are six different Toyota Tacoma trim levels that all come with a variety of different features. Many people have a hard time knowing which trim levels come with the options they want. We made this page to help you know which trim has your “must-have” features and to help you save money.
Some of the features people care the most about are a leather interior and temperature seats. You should know that only the Limited and TRD Pro trims come standard with leather seats. You can easily save more than $12,000 if you purchase a lower trim level such as the SR and add leather to it from Katzkin. There’s no reason to buy a higher Tacoma trim level just to get a leather interior or heated seats. But if you want a sunroof, you’ll have to buy a higher trim level.
Below is a quick breakdown of the six different Tacoma trim levels and what they all include. This isn’t a comprehensive list of every single feature included on every trim. Our goal is to show you some of the most common options people want in their Tacoma.
The SR is the base-level trim for the Tacoma. It comes with cloth seats, Apple Carplay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa compatibility, 16-inch alloy wheels, sliding rear window, an audio 7-inch touchscreen display, and three USB ports.
The SR5 comes with many of the features of the SR with some extras. For instance, it comes with Apple Carplay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa compatibility, and 16-inch wheels. But it also comes with remote keyless entry with Engine Immobilizer, a power sliding rear window, available lockable bed storage, Toyota Safety Sense, a chrome rear bumper, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and an available 10-way adjustable driver’s seat.
The TRD Sport is the lowest trim level that comes with an available power moonroof. It also comes with a 120v outlet in the bed, QI compatible smartphone wireless charging, an available smart key system with push-button start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and cloth seats. The TRD Sport does not come with heated or ventilated seats.
The TRD Off-Road trim still doesn’t come standard with leather seats but leather and heated seats are available as a package option for more money. It does come with an electronically locking rear differential, an available multi-terrain monitoring system, an available smarty key system with push-button start, Hill Start Assist, and more.
The Toyota Tacoma Limited is the lowest trim level that comes with a leather interior and heated seats. While it does not come with ventilated seas, it does come with 18-inch alloy wheels, a power moonroof, a premium JBL audio system with navigation including an 8-inch display with six speakers, a subwoofer, an amplifier, blindspot monitoring, front dual-zone automatic climate control, and more. It also comes with chrome handles on the doors and many other additional accented features.
The TRD Pro is the mother of all Tacoma trim levels. The top dog. Coming with all the most desired features of the trim levels beneath it plus 16-inch black TRD Pro wheels, Fox internal bypass shocks, available multi-terrain select with crawl control, TRD Pro front skid plate, TRD Pro Cat-Back exhaust, multi-terrain monitor, Rigid Industries LED fog lights, and more. It also comes with TRD Pro leather seats and heated front seats.
If you want all of the off-road features and a moonroof, plus a leather interior and heated front seats, the Limited or TRD Pro are for you. But, neither of those comes with ventilated seats and you have limited leather design options. If you purchase a lower trim level and add a leather interior from Katzkin, you get many more design options plus you can add ventilated seats while still saving $10,000-$12,000! Why wouldn’t you do that?Choose Your Design
There’s a whole host of reasons to choose Katzkin for your truck’s leather interior. For instance, if having leather seats is the only reason you want a higher trim level such as a Limited, you can easily save more than $12,000 by purchasing an SR instead and adding Katzkin leather to it.
A lot of our customers tell us that they prefer Katzkin leather over OEM seats because they get to choose from a huge variety of designs without sacrificing quality. We can make your seats as custom as you’d like. With more than 120 different colors, materials, and designs to choose from, it’s almost impossible not to find the design you’re looking for. But, if you can’t, you’re also more than welcome to design your own seats and we’ll make them for you. This is one of the reasons we replace OEM leather with Katzkin so much of the time.Choose Your Design
If you want heated and ventilated seats added to your truck, we can do that with our Degreez package. We can add up to three levels of heat and three levels of ventilation to your seats. Regardless of the Tacoma trim level you buy, none of them come with ventilated seats from the manufacturer. You actually have to purchase at least the TRD Off-Road trim for heated seats to even be an option. You can easily see how much you save, and the additional ways you can customize your truck to your liking, by purchasing a lower trim level instead of higher trim just for one or two features.
Most of the Tacomas we work on, and we work on a lot, are brand new. If you’re like most of our customers, you’ll purchase your new truck and take it to a Katzkin installer to get new custom leather added. But we frequently work on older trucks too. In fact, we can install leather on Tacomas as old as 2005. Also, it doesn’t matter if you have a super cab or double cab, we’ve worked on every cab style and can add leather to yours.
Approximately 25% of people, or one out of four, in the US, lease their vehicles. Leasing can be nice because it gives you a lower monthly payment and if you have a business, you can easily write it off on your taxes.
When leasing, if you want to add additional features such as bigger wheels, rhino liner in the bed, etc., you have to pay for those items over the course of the lease. For example, if you want custom rims and tires to go with your new truck, and they cost $2,500, you either have to pay $2,500 upfront or add it to your monthly payment. If it’s a 36-month lease, it’ll cost you an extra $69.44 every month on your lease.
The beauty of Katzkin is that they can residualized on your lease. That’s a fancy way of saying you won’t have to pay the entire cost of the seats over the course of the lease. After all, you’re not BUYING the seats, you’re just adding them to your lease. This can cut down the cost of your lease significantly and save you money!
It’s also worth noting that most people lease the trim levels below the Limited and those don’t come with leather seats. So this is an inexpensive way to add them!
