Posted Monday, Dec 11, 2017 by North Hollywood Toyota

Fuel efficiency isn’t a term always associated with trucks, but two of Toyota’s trucks are delivering great fuel savings to their customers. The Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tacoma have been named among the most fuel-efficient trucks by U.S. News & World Report.

Here in California, where gas prices are typically higher than the national average, finding a fuel-efficient vehicle is a must for thrifty consumers. L.A. residents who want the convenience of a truck, but without paying through the nose for gas, would do well to visit a Los Angeles Toyota dealership and check out the new Tundras and Tacomas.

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma offers outstanding fuel economy in a mid-sized package. The Tacoma enjoys a great reputation for reliability, and its fuel efficiency gives consumers another reason to love this popular truck. The Tacoma gets 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, making it one of the more fuel-efficient mid-size trucks.


The Tacoma is a good all-around truck for most drivers. It offers solid off-roading capability and has pretty good towing and hauling stats for a truck its size. The vehicle has a 1,620 lb. payload capacity, and it can tow more than 10,000 lbs.

The Tacoma has a very high-quality cabin. Soft-touch surfaces abound, and the seats are comfortable and provide excellent support. Multiple trim levels give buyers lots of opportunities to customize the features their Tacoma offers.

The 2017 Toyota Tundra offers great power and respectable fuel economy. The full-size pick up gets 15 miles per gallon in the city and 19 miles per gallon on the highway. That may not seem like much, but for a large truck equipped with a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 310 horsepower, those numbers are pretty good.

The Tundra has a lot to recommend it—it offers some of the most spacious and comfortable seats in its class and it makes off-roading easy. The vehicle also offers lots of standard features, including a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a user-friendly infotainment system. The Tundra is also a very durable workhorse, capable of towing more than five tons and hauling one ton in its bed.


Both the Tacoma and the Tundra have good safety ratings compared to rivaling trucks. Both also benefit from Toyota’s excellent reputation regarding reliability.

Consumers nationwide turn to U.S. News & World Report for reviews of schools, automobiles, and much more. It’s always a big coup for an automobile to be named to one of the publication’s lists, and Toyota execs are proud that the Tacoma and Tundra have received notice for their fuel efficiency.
