A pickup truck with a solid reputation for reliability, the Tacoma first joined Toyota’s lineup in 1995. This first generation was classified as a compact, and mirrored its American competitors with an array of possible configurations: cab sizes, bed lengths, engines and transmissions.

Reclassified as a midsize pickup following its 2005 redesign, the Tacoma continues to offer a variety of trim levels—from plain work truck to flashy off-roader—that will appeal to a wide range of drivers.

Major changes included: The Tacoma gets bigger while adding more power and refinement to an already stout platform. A plethora of features are offered, including a composite inner bed, which is lighter and stronger than steel, in addition to being more resilient to inclement weather. The Tacoma is offered in three configurations: Regular, Access and Double Cab. The new 4.0L V6 helps the Tacoma to tow up to 6,500 pounds vs. the last generation's 5,000 pounds. An X-Runner is also available (albeit in limited production) which features a more aggressive suspension, body kit, chassis-stiffening bars and a 3.15 final drive ratio (vs. 3.76).
