2004 Toyota Tacoma: For the very first time in One Decade, pick-up fans ultimately got an all-new Toyota Tacoma last year. Although the general shape and idea continued to be, the Taco got brand-new styling, a new engine, an upgraded interior and also numerous brand-new functions, placing a modern-day spin on this prominent midsize pick-up.


2004 Toyota Tacoma


Mainly, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma maintains its predecessors' positioning as the go-to midsize truck selection for off-roading and various other rugged journeys. Particularly when you go with one of the 3 TRD trim degrees, it could go places and do things that the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon would flush at. The Honda Ridgeline would laugh, turn around and go house. On the other hand, it's still less comfy, large and also refined than those trucks, suggesting it's much less desirable as an everyday chauffeur.

However truly, we like this purposeful, uncompromised nature. Although the Tacoma will not be for every person because of it, it'll also be completely fit for those that prefer its unique capacities.

The common 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine creates 159 horsepower while the optional 4.0-liter V-6 is available in at 236 horsepower. Both engines show up downrated compared to the '06 versions, however the distinctions just show adjustments in the method horsepower is measured and reported.

Eighteen model configurations are readily available, based on 3 taxi types: Routine Taxicab, expanded Access Taxi with double rear gain access to doors as well as tumble level back seats, as well as the four-door Dual Taxi.

2001 Toyota Tacoma Review

Toyota's small pickups are simple to take for given. Proprietors seem to think they can bring unreasonable tons and also proceed running without regular maintenance so they load them up like semis and also drive them up until the crankcase oil resorts to taffy. Toyota suppliers appear to look upon them as an annuity, consistently selling well with marginal promotion and also absolutely no initiative. And because they have not changed a lot considering that the introduction of the current generation and also its Tacoma name in 1995, there's hardly ever much information for the press to obtain delighted about.

For 2001 nevertheless, there's something new in Tacomaville, with upgrading throughout the line, and also the addition of four-door Double Taxicab and S-Runner street efficiency designs.

Next year we'll be back neglecting the Tacoma once more, no doubt.

1999 Toyota Tacoma Review

We could not help but think about a scene from the end of the 1980s film standard, Back to the Future when we were driving the 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4x4. "Marty, I completed waxing your vehicle - as well as I put three coats of wax on this moment," Biff said with a smile, as he handed Marty McFly the tricks to his 4x4 Toyota pick-up.

Although Toyota's small truck had not been really christened Tacoma till 1995, mentally the Tacoma is the same as the black vehicle utilized in Back to the Future. Just as Marty's Toyota 4x4 appeared like it was more than capable off-road, our vehicle, equipped with the $1,660 Toyota Racing Growth (TRD) off-road package, showed up to have similar capacities.

And with off road tuned suspension, black wheel arc moldings, 15-inch alloy wheels rolling on 31-inch tires and a securing back differential, the Tacoma we evaluated definitely had the equipment necessary to deal with serious off-road scenarios.
