The 2018 Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup truck, slotted below the full-size Tundra in Toyota’s pickup truck lineup. With a starting MSRP of $25,200, the Tacoma is a capable off-roader and is also offered with a manual transmission, which isn’t available on some competitors. Shoppers who don’t regularly venture off-road who aren’t in need of major towing capabilities would be better served by looking at the Honda Ridgeline, which is car-based and so rides and handles more comfortably, and also has a roomier interior. The Toyota Tacoma is available in multiple trim level and configurations, and has a four-cylinder and available V-6 engines.
Pros: Advanced Safety Features, Rugged, Plethora Of Configurations
Cons: Cumbersome Ride And Handing, Outdated Styling
Looks Best In: Cavalry Blue exterior/Black interior
Competition: Chevrolet Colorado, Honda Ridgeline, GMC Canyon,
Summary: The 2018 Toyota Tacoma is a rugged truck that fits the lifestyle of an off-roading enthusiast or truck shoppers looking for something more rugged than a Honda Ridgeline. Although prices can quickly rise, even in basic form the Tacoma comes well equipped.
