Taco enthusiasts looking to dress up the 2023 Toyota Tacoma will have new opportunities to do so, provided they’re partial to the SR5 model. That’s because Toyota now offers it with new Chrome and SX appearance packages.
The Chrome package only becomes unlocked when paired with the SR5 crew cab (a.k.a. Double Cab) and the standard 5-foot cargo bed. The truck’s optional 3.5-liter V-6 is also required. With this configuration selected, the Chrome package adds more bling to the Tacoma without having to shell out for the more expensive Limited model. The roster of shiny bits that come with the new kit includes the door handles, exhaust tips, and the Tacoma lettering on the tailgate. Likewise, the SR5’s standard 16-inch wheels are swapped for a set of polished 18-inch rims. The shift knob inside gets a leather wrap, too.
Last year, the SX package was available on the SR base model, but now for 2023 it’s offered on the SR5. Unlike with the Chrome package, the only requirement to unlock the SX option is to tick the box for the V-6. That means both cab styles and their respective bed lengths can be paired with the black-out look. Included with the SX package are black exterior badges, mirror caps, and overfenders. Most notably, the standard 16-inch wheels are replaced by black 18-inchers, complete with black lug nuts. The other visual cue with the black pack is a bedside SX decal.
Toyota also sprinkles some other new features across the 2023 Tacoma lineup. The TRD Pro is now available with an exclusive paint color called Solar Octane. The Trail Edition is updated with taller coil springs up front that lift the truck’s nose 1.1 inches. Combined with removing the front air dam, the extra lift increases the approach angle by 5 degrees to 34 degrees. The truck’s back end is lifted a half-inch via a spacer placed between the leaf springs and the rear axle housing, slightly increasing the departure angle to 23.6 degrees. The breakover angle also grows by just over 5 degrees to 26.4 degrees. Finally, all V-6-powered SR5 models now come standard with passive entry and push-button start.
While Toyota detailed all the new content that’s available on the ’23 Tacoma, the company didn’t announce pricing for the trim levels or the new packages.
