The Toyota Tacoma has been the sales leader among compact and mid-size pickup trucks since 2008, and it offers a wide range of configurations -- from basic work truck to boulder-bashing off-roaders and quasi-luxury models. It comes in Access Cab and Double Cab body styles; Access Cab versions have rear-hinged rear doors and folding jump seats, while the Double Cab has four regular doors and a three-seat rear bench. The Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds when properly equipped. Competitors include the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Nissan Frontier. Prior to the Tacoma, Toyota offered smaller pickups in the U.S. under a variety of model names.
Towing vehicles can tow a minimum of 2,000 pounds (see specifications for maximum). May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
Off-Road vehicles include four-wheel-drive SUVs and pickup trucks with the extra feature of a dual-range transfer case or dedicated crawl mode for extreme off-road driving. May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
