This version of the Tacoma shed some of its workaday roots with powertrain, steering system, and interior trim improvements. Fuel economy is quite competitive among pickup trucks, and handling is secure. However, the ride is not altogether comfortable and the driving position is not ideal. Payload capacity is relatively small. A rear-view camera is optional.

What Owners Say

"With the 4-banger it is not a rocket ship but is very economical - my old 1994 Toyota truck never got over 20 MPG, while this 2011 often get as much as 26 MPG on the highway even though it is longer, wider, higher, and heavier than the old one. Not to mention many more creature comforts in the cabin. Hard to believe."

Edwin W., NY (2011 Toyota Tacoma)

"After enjoying driving manual transmission vehicles most of my life, I find the jerky shifting of the truck rather off-putting.
