It says something when the United States Army is considering dumping the Hummer for the new Toyota Tacoma. The second generation 2010 Toyota Tacoma is one of the safest and most reliable mid-sized trucks on the road right now. Despite the recent Toyota recalls the Tacoma has been exempt from design flaws.
The Tacoma is great for the true off roading enthusiast because it comes with either the 5-speed automatic or preferred 6-speed manual transmission. Now just add the very roomy dual or quad-cab option and you’ll be able to take all of your friends to that hard to reach destination.
Toyota decided that for their second generation Tacoma they were going to stay with the light but powerful 4.0L V6 engine that can get an impressive 236-hp. Not if power isn’t on your short list, the Tacoma has the smaller available 2.7L I4 that clocks in at 159-hp.
Despite the recalls of most Toyota models the Tacoma has stayed aloft of the controversy and still outperforms all of the other trucks in its class. The Tacoma also maintains one of the best resale prices in its class by far. Also at just 9.4L/100km you’ll be saving a fortune on fuel. So check one out today at your nearest Toyota dealership.
