Toyota introduced its compact Tacoma pickup in 1995 to replace the Hilux, a model praised for its exceptional durability. As a direct descendent of the venerated Hilux, Tacoma was actually used in both Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom by American Special Forces—with a few substantial modifications, of course.
In its second generation, Toyota fundamentally re-engineered the Tacoma as a mid-size pickup to replace its aging (and oft-criticized) T100. Besides increased dimensions, model year 2004 brought with it increases in available horsepower (236), cab room (double cab), bed length (up to 6’), towing (6,500 lbs) and payload capacity (1,650 lbs).
Tacoma offers pickup truck capabilities in a mid-sized package that’s relatively friendly on fuel, with impressive crash ratings complemented by Toyota’s renowned reliability. No wonder it’s so popular.
