What should you know about engine size before shopping?
Let's talk about the basics, first – we know it can be overwhelming to try and think about engine size without a little background information. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when shopping our Clermont Toyotas:
- Bigger engines offer more power, so they're typically the size of choice for drivers who want to get off road or who want to tow or haul heavy loads behind their rides.
- Smaller engines offer less power, but they're usually more fuel-efficient than larger engines. If you're trying to budget and keep fuel costs in check, smaller is better.
- Smaller engines also tend to be less expensive than bigger engines.
- Before you make a final decision, do your research. Some engine sizes are only available on certain models, which means you'll also only have access to specific features (unless you add packages and accessories). Cross-reference your list of features with the engine options to ensure everything lines up.

Displacement: Displacement simply means how much space is available inside the engine and it's measured in liters. That's why you hear prefixes like 2.5L, 4.0L, 5.7L, etc. when shopping different engines.
