The Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup truck is available in two cab styles: Access Cab and Double Cab. The Access Cab comes with a 6-foot bed, while the Double Cab can be had with a 5- or 6-foot bed. The Tacoma can seat up to five people in certain configurations. It competes with the Nissan Frontier and Chevrolet Colorado.
New for 2015
The regular-cab Tacoma has been dropped from the lineup. A new Utility Package for the four-cylinder Access Cab deletes the rear seats for more in-cab storage room.
The new TRD Pro Series Tacoma features 16-inch black alloy wheels, BFGoodrich all-terrain tires, high-performance Bilstein shocks with remote reservoirs, unique front springs, a TRD exhaust system, and a special grille and badges. Inside, TRD Pro Series trucks get a TRD shift knob and floormats.
