NEW FOR 2015:
- Access Cab models now come with rear privacy glass, sliding rear window, cruise control, keyless entry, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard.
The Toyota Tacoma is one of the few remaining mid-sized trucks on the market ? and one of the most durable, reliable, and rugged vehicles that money can buy. In addition, the Tacoma has some of the best residual values in the business making it a solid buy. This is something of an anomaly as the Tacoma has remained effectively the same truck since it launched a decade ago.
The Tacoma is available in several configurations. A 2.7-litre four-cylinder engine is available in the Access Cab in two- or four-wheel drive, with a five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission.
A 4.0-litre V6 is available in the Access Cab in 4x4 configuration, with six-speed manual or optional five-speed automatic. It is also the only engine available in the Double Cab, in 4x4 only, where it comes with the six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.
The Access Cab features small, rear-hinged back doors that can only be operated when the front doors are open; the Double Cab uses four independently-opening doors. The Access Cab uses a six-foot box; the Double Cab comes with a five-foot or six-foot box. All of them are double-walled and made of composite material, and include a removable tailgate and tie-downs.
Features on the Access Cab 4x2 I4 include 15-inch steel wheels, 6-foot bed, 6.1-inch AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA display audio system with six speakers, Bluetooth capability, auxiliary and USB input, air conditioning, fabric seating, front bucket seats, rear jump seats with fold up seat cushion, power windows with driver auto-down, remote keyless entry, tilt/telescopic steering, carpeted and all-season floor mats, rear splash guards, power mirrors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, sliding rear window, rear privacy glass, cargo bed tie-downs, tie-down cleats, TPMS, and front tow hooks.
The Access Cab 4x4 I4 adds 16-inch steel wheels, satellite radio, front and rear splash guards, and fender flares.
The Access Cab 4x4 V6 adds steering wheel audio controls.
The Double Cab models add rear seat heater ducts, driver seat lumbar adjustment, front passenger seat fold-down seatback, and 60/40 split rear bench seat with fold down seatback. Manual models come with a 5-foot bed while automatic models are equipped with a 6-foot bed.
