Toyota Tacoma Model Review

The Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup truck available with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive and room for up to five people. It’s known for its off-road capability and comes in a wide range of bed and cab configurations. The current Tacoma was redesigned for the 2016 model year, with recent models costing between $25,517 and $40,614.

Toyota Tacoma Pros

  • Great off-road capability 
  • High predicted reliability ratings
  • Easy-to-use infotainment
Toyota Tacoma Cons
  • Stiff ride
  • Limited space for rear passengers in some configurations
  • Lower-grade cabin materials than some competitors

How Much Can a Toyota Tacoma Tow?

Midsize trucks don’t tow as much as their full-size counterparts, but you can still get plenty of work done in the Tacoma. Towing varies depending on the exact configuration you choose and on which engine is under the hood. The current Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds while some older models, depending on their configuration, maxed out at only 3,500 pounds.

Where Are Toyota Tacomas Made?

Toyota is headquartered in Japan, but has factories located throughout the world. The Tacoma is currently assembled in San Antonio, Texas and in Baja California, Mexico.

How Many Miles do Toyota Tacomas Last?

If you’re looking to get a midsize pickup that can handle a lot of mileage, the Tacoma is a top contender. Our list of the Longest-Lasting Cars to Reach 200,000 Miles and Beyond included the Tacoma. Of the 16 cars that are at least 2.5 times more likely than average to reach 200,000 miles, the Tacoma ranked at 14 for being 2.8 times more likely than average to reach that milestone. So, it’s fair to say that the Toyota Tacoma lasts a lot of miles.

Can a Toyota Tacoma Pull a Camper?

You can absolutely tow a camper with the Tacoma, but you are limited as to how large a camper you can hitch up safely. Since tow ratings vary based on engine and configuration, it’s wise to check the exact tow rating of your Tacoma to verify that your camper does not exceed those weight limits.

Toyota Tacoma versus Tundra

The Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup truck while the Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup truck. While the Tacoma can handle smaller payloads and basic towing needs, if you tow heavy loads on a regular basis and/or have large payload demands you’ll want the Tundra for its higher towing and payload ratings.

Toyota Tacoma versus Ford Ranger

The Toyota Tacoma and Ford Ranger are both midsize pickups with comparable capabilities and features. However, the Tacoma is the only one to offer a manual transmission and it starts at a lower price, though expect used models to cost more than comparable Rangers. The Tacoma also has a standard 7-inch infotainment touchscreen while base trims of the Ranger have a smaller 4.2-inch display screen. One other consideration is that the Ranger was not sold for the 2012 through 2018 model years, so there aren’t as many used Rangers available for purchase.

Toyota Tacoma versus Chevrolet Colorado

Styling is quite different between these two mid-size trucks, with the Tacoma offering a bolder off-road look compared to the Colorado’s more refined styling. The Colorado has a steel bed where the Tacoma has a composite bed with additional features for securing cargo. While gas powertrains are comparable, the Colorado offers a diesel option, which isn’t available at all on the Tacoma.

Toyota Tacoma versus Nissan Frontier

The Tacoma and Frontier both come in a range of configurations with multiple powertrains, but only the Tacoma continues to offer a manual transmission. Engines and capabilities are comparable, but the Tacoma comes out ahead on features. It has more standard safety and more standard technology as well a wider range of options than what’s offered on the Frontier, though a long-overdue redesign of the 2022 Frontier addresses most of these issues.

Test Drive Reviews

2019 Toyota Tacoma

The current-generation Toyota Tacoma is now in its third year since redesign and continues to be the best-selling midsize pickup truck on the market. There's good reason for that, but also room for improvement in the Tacoma. The Tacoma remains a solid little truck with plenty to offer, however, including lower-end options for workaday use and higher-end off-road powerhouses for fun.

The 2019 Tacoma sees a few updates to its rough and ready TRD Pro trim level, which now has even more off-pavement equipment as standard. An available high-mounted snorkel is also offered for the TRD Pro line. But even the lower-end Tacoma offers good off-road options thanks to a high ground clearance and good suspension as standard equipment.

As a strong and capable little truck, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is also versatile and useful as a pickup. There are two engine choices, six trim levels, two cab configurations, two bed lengths (based on cab choice), and rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Each of the six trim levels available for the Tacoma offer something specific to most needs, from low-end work truck to everyday driver to off-road powerhouse.

2018 Toyota Tacoma

The 2018 Toyota Tacoma is a strong, capable and versatile little truck. It was redesigned for the 2016 model year and hasn't changed much since then. For 2018, Toyota added some safety features as standard and removed the base model's manual transmission option. The 2018 Tacoma is otherwise unchanged.

It's not a bad thing since the Toyota Tacoma is a solid little truck and remains the best-selling midsize pickup truck for a good reason. Tacoma models work for for simple workaday needs, everyday drivers, occasional off-roading and cargo hauling, and serious off-pavement activity and weekend fun. Whatever you have planned for the 2018 Tacoma, there's a model to fit.

The Tacoma is available with two engine choices, six trim-level options and two cab options. The base model SR is popular as a fleet truck or small business hauler, while the SR5 is often a consumer's entry-level pick. Three Toyota Racing Development (TRD) trims are offered, starting with the TRD Sport and moving to the TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro editions. The Limited package is the top fitting in terms of comfort and convenience.

Most models of the Tacoma are available as rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Both an extended cab and four-door crew cab option are available in most trims as well. Bed lengths can vary from 5 to 6.1 feet in length, depending on cab choice and model trim.

2017 Toyota Tacoma

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma continues with the pickup truck's full redesign for the 2016 model year. Changes for 2017 are minimal, with only the addition of a power rear-sliding window option as new. The TRD Pro packaging returns after a year's hiatus, bringing back the off-pavement-monster model option for the Tacoma.

Most of the 2017 Tacoma's appeal comes from its new look and powerful history. The Tacoma has long been a best-seller in the midsize pickup truck segment, for a variety of reasons. Currently, the main reason may be because it's the newest and best overall value offering in the truly midsize segment. The excellent and unmatched TRD Pro package may also be part of it this year.

The 2017 Toyota Tacoma is a strong, capable, versatile and comfortable small truck for those who need what a midsize pickup can offer. It's capable of being both a workhorse and a toy. Exactly what midsize pickup buyers want.

2016 Toyota Tacoma


There are people who want a pickup truck for the capabilities it offers such as towing a trailer or hauling various loads. But don't want a full-size model as they find them hard to maneuver and they don't want to faint whenever they go to fill up the gas tank. Is there a truck for these type of folks? Yes, and it is the midsize truck. Now for a few years, you only had the choice between the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma. This was due to other manufacturers dropping their models because of declining sales in the class.


But the past couple of years has seen a resurgence in the class thanks to GM introducing the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. These two trucks brought big improvements in terms of comfort, powertrains, and towing. Not to be outdone, Toyota introduced a redesigned version of the Tacoma to give GM's midsize trucks a real challenge.

2013 Toyota Tacoma

The 2013 Toyota Tacoma is in its second generation of production. The Tacoma was first introduced in 1995 as a compact pickup to compete with models like the Mazda B2200, the Chevrolet S-10 and the Ford Ranger. Starting in 2005 it was remodeled for the second generation, bringing a new style and substance to its looks and performance and turning the B2200, Ranger and S-10 into distant past memories. The 2013 Toyota Tacoma follows in those competition-crushing footsteps. The most noticeable difference for the 2013 model of the Tacoma is the restyling of the front grille, headlights and bumper, but that's not where it ends.
