Why the 2017 Toyota Tacoma Makes a Great Family Vehicle

2017 Toyota Tacoma

Try to think of a family vehicle and you probably picture a minivan, large SUV, or maybe a sedan. While these are all great for families, pickups like the 2017 Toyota Tacoma are, as well, particularly if you choose the right cabin and other options. You can get the family features you want, like technology and safety, along with the Tacoma’s capabilities, helping families with boats or on road trips.

Seating for All

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma can easily fit your entire family, unless you truly need every seat in a minivan. After all, you can configure it to seat up to six passengers. In addition, the LATCH system comes standard on all models so you can easily fit a car seat into your pickup’s cab. Not only is there seating for all, but it can also be luxurious with leather seats and adjustability.


Kenner parents will automatically search for a safe vehicle for their family, and the Toyota Tacoma easily delivers in this respect. In addition to the Star Safety System, the Tacoma has innovative doors with advanced high-strength steel to make them tough. Available Rear Parking Sonar makes it much easier to back up, even with a cabin full of kids, and you can also enjoy Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitor.


Families tend to take a lot of things with them on a regular basis, which is why the Tacoma’s design is perfect. If you are concerned about security, adding the locking tri-fold hard Tonneau cover so you can protect items outside of your cabin, as well as inside. The Tacoma’s tailgate handle is always lockable. Of course, the Tacoma’s ability to tow as much as 6,800 pounds or haul up to 1,440 makes it perfect for family road trips, bringing your boat somewhere, or helping your kid move to college.
