Toyota Tacoma Overview
The Tacoma remains a workhorse compact pickup. Fuel economy is competitive, but clumsy handling makes it a chore to drive long distances. The 4.0-liter V6 provides strong performance but is noisy. However, the incessantly jiggly ride grows fatiguing, and it's particularly stiff with the TRD suspension package. The cabin's high floor and low roof makes access tricky, and the driving position is too low and uncomfortable. Towing and off-road capabilities are better than most of the competition. The Tacoma has been reliable, but it scores too low in our testing to be recommended. A redesign hits the market in late 2015.
