The Toyota Tacoma debuted in 1995 and has seen consistent success ever since. Named after the well-known city in the state of Washington, the Tacoma was designed by Toyota to take over the light-truck spot in its lineup. The first generation saw three engine options: 2.4L four-cylinder, 2.7 four-cylinder, and 3.4L V6. The Tacoma also came in both two and four wheel drive with different features available for either one. The two-wheel drive Tacoma was available in both an automatic or manual transmission. The four-wheel drive version offered an automatic and manual transmission as well, but unlike the two-wheel drive Tacoma, the 3.4L V6 was an option. In 2001, the Tacoma got its second updating. Such Tacoma parts as the grille and headlights were enlarged and a four-door crew cab was also introduced.
The second generation of the Tacoma was designed to present a bolder overall stance. Three different cab configurations, two bed lengths, and four transmission options were made available. Engines included a 4.0L V6 that replaced the previous 3.4L V6 from the first generation. The improved V6 garnered could tow more than 3 ˝ tons, pumped out 236 horsepower, and boasted 266 foot-pounds of torque. The X-Runner trim was brought out by Toyota to give drivers a more ruggedly-styled Tacoma. This version offered up a six-speed manual, 18” wheels, and was lowered two inches from its standard height. Toyota Racing Development series Tacomas target a more youthful demographic and feature Down Hill Assist Control and Hill Side Assist Control to help stop the vehicle from rolling backwards.
After having undergone various minor changes to its parts over the last few years, the Toyota Tacoma is still very much the cream of the light pickup crop. The current Tacoma displays LED taillights and a fuller grille. The X-Runner, the TRD Off-Road (Toyota Racing Development), and TRD Sport show off smoked headlight trim. The Tacoma is flexible enough to be attractive to a diverse group of truckers, which is why Toyota presents a vast number of configurations to choose from. And despite the recent economic woes, the Tacoma is still bringing in business, as the truck will be assembled in San Antonio, bringing with it over a thousand new jobs. Sales of the Toyota Tacoma have been extremely impressive. Since 2000, the Tacoma has averaged over 159,000 models sold annually, easily one of the highest numbers in its class.
The Tacoma has filled a very important role in the Toyota lineup as a super-capable compact-midsize pickup that pleases a wide range of drivers. It is a smooth performer, and each trim level has the ability to venture off the beaten path a little bit or pound some pavement on the highway. Super-roomy interior comfort within the cab (and there are several sizes offered) are one of the key points that have made this model so successful. The Tacoma also doesn't lack for style, as its slightly boxed wheel wells and rounded platform-hood design will tell you. Whether for backing you on a trip to the country or just for everyday travels, the Tacoma finds a way to impress each time, especially when outfitted with the right accessories.
