Wondering how long do Toyota OEM batteries last? Typically, the battery in your Toyota Tacoma will last somewhere in the range of 3 to 5 years. After that, you'll need to have your auto battery replaced. Batteries Plus makes it easy to find the right replacement battery for your Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup truck. You'll find both flooded and AGM replacement batteries for your Toyota Tacoma SR, Tacoma SR5, Tacoma TRD, Tacoma TRD Pro, Tacoma TRD Off-Road or Tacoma Limited.
How can you tell if your car battery is going bad? When the battery in your Toyota Tacoma starts dying, you'll notice a change in your vehicle's performance. As the battery ages, it will struggle to start your engine. It may also have a hard time holding a charge, forcing you to jumpstart your engine. If any of these things happen, it's a good idea to have your battery tested. Batteries Plus tests Toyota Tacoma batteries for free.
When replacing the battery in your Toyota Tacoma truck, start by identifying the correct BCI Group Size battery that your vehicle requires. You can find this info in your owner's manual, by looking at your current battery or by using one of several reference tools available online. The experts at your local Batteries Plus will also be happy to help.
Another thing to keep in mind is the number of cold cranking amps (CCAs) you need for your truck. CCAs tell you how well your battery will hold up in cold weather. Your owner's manual will provide you with the correct CCA requirements for your Toyota Tacoma. If you live in an area prone to extreme cold, you may want to purchase a battery with a higher number of CCAs than what your owner's manual recommends.
Once you have that information, you need to decide if you want a flooded or AGM replacement battery for your Toyota Tacoma. Flooded batteries are the most commonly used type of auto battery. They're also the most affordable. An AGM battery will cost you more upfront but will last about twice as long and perform better overall. X2Power AGM batteries last even longer - up to 3 times as long as a flooded battery. Plus, they recharge faster and are built to turn over your engine in any climate. One very important thing to keep in mind; if your Tacoma originally came with an AGM battery, you must replace it with another AGM battery. Do not attempt to downgrade to a flooded battery.

Many Toyota Tacoma trucks require a Group 24F battery. Before you buy a new battery, be sure to check the battery requirements of your specific model and year in your owner's manual.
The cost of a replacement Toyota Tacoma battery will depend on what type of battery you choose. A flooded battery will be your most affordable option. An AGM battery will cost you more upfront, but since they last much longer, oftentimes you end up saving money in the long run by purchasing an AGM battery.
Most Tacoma batteries will last you between 3 and 5 years. To get the longest life possible from your battery, be sure to keep it charged at all times. Drive your Tacoma for a minimum of 30 minutes a week at highway speeds. If you don't drive it that often, attach it to a battery maintainer to help prevent the battery from sulfating .
