    It is a good question. I'd like to hear the answer for this too. I think it may just signify a certain "package" option for the Tacoma. But what does the SR5 stand for??

    I had heard from a dealer when I bought my '85 4-Runner that SR5 literally meant, "Soft-Ride, 5 Speed". It is an older term that has hung on, stemming from a more plush interior, different suspension, and gadgetry features. My 4-Runner had an altimiter and an inclinometer.
    But....then again, the sales manager may have been BSing me and didn't know himself.

    And this is just what's available right now. It changes over the years even with the 2nd Gen Tacoma. For instance, most of the SR5 packages sold in my area included the same wheels as the TRD OR. And, they all included the limited slip differential. That was all part of the SR5 package option that came on mine back in '05.

    So what's in the package this year may be different than last year or next year.

    Not so sure now. How about this?

    This article is from the Toyota Tundra FAQ, by Steve Yee with numerous contributions by others.

    2.5 - What does SR5 mean anyways ? (Toyota Historical Background)

    In the latter part of the 1970's, the SR5 connotation denoted an option code
    for the HiLux series of trucks, similar to what the Z71 option code currently
    means for an upgraded Chevy or GMC pickup or Tahoe/Yukon. Originally released
    around 1975, the 'S' denoted Sport, 'R' denoted the RN motor code, and '5'
    denoted the 5-speed transmission. It quickly caught on and the SR5 connotation
    passed onto the Corolla and then onto other Toyota car models. Even though the
    HiLux name was dropped in 1979 for the United States market, it is still used
    today elsewhere in the world as the name for a Tacoma-like pickup and/or the
    4Runner, depending on the market.

    Note: Some other historical information shows that the Corolla had the "SR5"
    designation first, then it was passed on to the HiLux series. The majority of
    historical information seems to promote the HiLux first, then the Corolla,
    rather than vice-versa.

    Today, the SR5 generally denotes a specifc Toyota trim level, with a more
    sporty look and wide flexibility for options.
