2001 Toyota Tacoma Review

Toyota's compact pick-ups are easy to take for provided. Proprietors seem to assume they can carry unreasonable lots and proceed running without normal maintenance so they pack them up like semis as well as drive them until the crankcase oil resorts to taffy. Toyota dealerships seem to consider them as an annuity, routinely selling well with marginal promotion as well as no initiative. And since they haven't changed much since the introduction of the latest generation as well as its Tacoma name in 1995, there's hardly ever much news for journalism to get delighted around.

For 2001 however, there's something new in Tacomaville, with updating throughout the line, as well as the enhancement of four-door Double Taxi and S-Runner street efficiency models.

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

1999 Toyota Tacoma Review

We could not help yet think of a scene from completion of the 1980s motion picture classic, Back to the Future when we were driving the 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4x4. "Marty, I finished waxing your truck - and I put 3 coats of wax on this time," Biff said with a smile, as he handed Marty McFly the secrets to his four-wheel drive Toyota pickup.

Although Toyota's small truck wasn't actually christened Tacoma until 1995, spiritually the Tacoma is the same as the black vehicle used in Back to the Future. Just as Marty's Toyota 4x4 resembled it was greater than capable off-road, our vehicle, geared up with the $1,660 Toyota Racing Growth (TRD) off-road bundle, appeared to have comparable capacities.

And with off road tuned suspension, black wheel arc moldings, 15-inch alloy wheels rolling on 31-inch tires and also a securing rear differential, the Tacoma we examined most definitely had the devices necessary to tackle severe off-road scenarios.
