Toyota may have had some issues in the past year, but they continue to build the Toyota Tacoma which is one of the best trucks on the road. Fielding two versions (the Tundra as well as the Toyota Tacoma), they have constructed a quality, durable vehicle that does well in safety, power, mileage and loyalty tests when compared to similar vehicles from other manufacturers. The Toyota Tacoma is a worthwhile purchase from the inside and out.

Toyota Tacoma Exterior

On the outside, the Toyota Tacoma is a superior model that wows the consumer before they ever even open the door. An antitheft system that includes remotely keyed electronic door locks and an engine immobilizer make it difficult to steal. The Toyota Tacoma has 4-wheel antilock brakes, brake assistance, a stability control system and a braking force distribution system that ensure the truck will stop when demanded and while offering a smooth ride. All Toyota vehicles come with a wide color selection and the Toyota Tacoma is no exception with startling metallics and electric solids. The truck has a 5350-lb towing capability, a full sized spare and SBRP245/75R16 tires for better traction control. As a whole, the Toyota Tacoma offers exterior options that make it an industry leader.

 Toyota Tacoma Interior

Trucks used to be the purview of the rural set, but they have become much more urban lately. Therefore, they need to be as smooth and comfortable as they are tough and able to carry a payload. A 4 liter V-6 with 236 hp is large enough to provide the power and acceleration Toyota is known for. A six speaker AM/FM radio with CD and MP3 capability is standard as is a tire pressure monitor. For comfort, the Toyota Tacoma offers two jump seats that can be equipped with electronic adjustments, standard air conditioning and temperature control, and compressed gas shock absorbers that provide a car-like feel. Safety is accounted for with airbags that shield the entire compartment, the Star Safety System, and the ability to adjust the height on tseatbelts. All interior appointments are designed so the driver and any passengers feel safe and comfortable.

Many automakers manufacture trucks, but only Toyota makes the Tacoma. With standard features that supply one of the best rides on the road and extras that personalize it, the Toyota Tacoma is a dream vehicle both on the road and off.
