The 2012 Tacoma interior also gets a new look with a black high-contrast center console, switch plate covers, dash and upper door trim, while the SR5 grade features a new seat fabric design.

The 2012 Toyota Tacoma also has upgraded audio options for some models.  Access Cab models offer a new available six-speaker system.  The audio head unit has built-in Bluetooth® allows hands-free phone, and a USB port enables connection of an iPod®, MP3 player or flash drive with music files.

The DoubleCab V6 models offer a more advanced display audio system with today’s most in-demand connectivity features. These include navigation, Toyota Entune™ services, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (with 90-day trial subscription), HD Radio with iTunes® tagging and text/e-mail-to-voice.  This premium infotainment system plays through a JBL® GreenEdge audio system with seven speakers.  GreenEdge technology helps reduce fuel consumption by lowering the electric power demand on the vehicle.

New for 2012, Tacoma offers a heavy-duty all-weather flooring in the 2012 Tacoma Access and Double Cab models, while the more specialized TRD Sport and Off-Road models offer new water-resistant fabric protection seats.  The TRD Sport Package adds side mirrors with turn-signal lamps for 2012, as well as available chrome-clad 18-inch wheels.
