2001 Toyota Tacoma Review

Toyota's small pickups are easy to take for given. Owners seem to think they could lug silly tons and proceed running without routine upkeep so they load them up like semis and also drive them until the crankcase oil turns to taffy. Toyota dealers seem to look upon them as an annuity, frequently offering well with very little promotion and also absolutely no initiative. And considering that they have not transformed much because the intro of the latest generation and its Tacoma name in 1995, there's rarely much information for the press to get delighted about.

For 2001 nonetheless, there's something new in Tacomaville, with upgrading throughout the line, and also the enhancement of four-door Dual Cab and also S-Runner road efficiency models.

Following year we'll be back overlooking the Tacoma again, no question.

1999 Toyota Tacoma Review

We could not assist but think of a scene from the end of the 1980s motion picture standard, Back to the Future when we were driving the 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4x4. "Marty, I ended up waxing your truck - and also I placed three layers of wax on this time," Biff stated with a smile, as he handed Marty McFly the tricks to his four-wheel drive Toyota pick-up.

Although Toyota's portable vehicle wasn't actually christened Tacoma till 1995, spiritually the Tacoma coincides as the black truck utilized in Back to the Future. Just as Marty's Toyota 4x4 looked like it was greater than qualified off-road, our vehicle, geared up with the $1,660 Toyota Competing Advancement (TRD) off-road bundle, appeared to have similar abilities.

And also with off road tuned suspension, black wheel arc moldings, 15-inch alloy wheels rolling on 31-inch tires as well as a locking back differential, the Tacoma we checked most definitely had the equipment required to take on severe off-road situations.
