About Toyota Tacoma

Having been a mainstay of the compact and midsize pickup segments, Toyota Tacoma has been produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation since January 1995 as a compact and mid-size pickup. Originally introduced to replace the Toyota Pickup Truck, Tacoma is also a global counterpart of the Hilux.

The second-generation Toyota Tacoma was produced from August 2004 to August 2015 and made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show on February 4, 2004. It was available in three cab configurations and two bed lengths. The three cab configurations consist of regular cab, access cab and double cab. And it came with X-Runner (replacing the S-Runner), TRD package, TRD Extreme or T/X Baja, TRD Pro, and Ironman Edition. During this production run, Tacoma was powered by 2.7 L I4 or 4.0 L V6 coupled to 4-speed, 5-speed automatic and 5-speed, 6-speed manual transmissions. Current generation Toyota Tacoma was unveiled at the January 2015 Detroit Auto Show as a 2016 model. It now is available for 5 trim levels including the base SR, mid-level SR5, TRD Off Road, TRD Sport and the range-topping Limited. The 2.7-liter I4 remains as the base engine but the 4.0-liter V6 has been replaced by a 3.5-liter unit and power is sent through 5-speed, 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission to rear wheels or four wheels.
