Toyota owners typically love the outdoors which is just the reason why the company introduced a new set of special edition Tacoma models. Built on the proven double-cab platforms, the Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition and Tacoma Nightshade Edition are ready to blaze new trails. But they are facing an uphill battle against newer models from the competition.

The new Toyota Tacoma Trail and Nightshade Editions are powered by a very reliable and award-winning 3.5-liter V6 engine, producing 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. The engine is available with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Buyers can choose from a standard 2-wheel-drive- or available 4-wheel-drive configurations. The Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds.

2021 Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition

All Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition models will include black exterior badging and black seating with tan stitching. All-weather floor liners help to keep the interior clean. Tacoma Trail colors include Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, and Super White.

The 2021 Tacoma Trail also features Dark Gray 18-inch TRD Off-Road wheels with Kevlar All-Terrain tires. The grille from the Tacoma Limited is used here to add a custom touch. Those needing auxiliary power from time-to-time will be happy with the 115-volt power outlet located in the bed. The Trail Edition also comes with lockable bed storage boxes with insulation on the driver’s side to double as a cooler.

2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade Edition

Tacoma Nightshade Editions are based on Limited trim models. They include some rather sinister exterior trim, a black grille, black mirror caps, and blackened door handles. Black wheels and a black exhaust tip round out the package. Toyota will present the Tacoma Nightshade model in several hues, including Midnight Black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, and Super White. Windchill Pearl is an extra-cost option.

Availability and pricing

The 2021 Toyota Tacoma Special Editions will be available in the Summer and Fall of 2020. Pricing will be announced later. The current 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 Double Cab, on which the Tail Edition will be based, starts at $27,825. The Double Cab Limited used for the Nightshade costs $38,790. Prices exclude $1,095 delivery.
