Driving Impression

The 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine makes 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. With rear-wheel drive, it only comes with the 5-speed automatic transmission, but the 5-speed manual is available with four-wheel drive.

The 278-horsepower V6 is a happy-revving engine. With both direct injection and a variable intake system with a wide intake, it meets the Atkinson combustion cycle. Its 265 foot-pounds of torque work well with the 6-speed automatic, with its smooth upshifts and downshifts and excellent gear spacing. The 6-speed manual is a market rarity; neither the Colorado, Canyon, nor Ridgeline have a manual transmission.

The rigid chassis uses a steel ladder frame that’s closed with a crossmember in front, though not in back. The cabin structure uses high-strength steel with side beams.

Ride quality is better than it used to be. The front suspension uses double wishbones with coil springs whose rates were softened for 2016 to improve the ride, along with a softening of the rear shocks. That shock tuning included tweaks to the rebound damping through changed valving, to improve control.

Four tunes of suspension mean four levels of ride quality and handling. The SR, SR5, and Limited get the standard suspension, TRD Sport models get a sportier suspension setup, while TRD Off Road models get a suspension designed for offroad, with more wheel travel and articulation. The TRD models actually ride smoother on rough roads and gravel roads.

The TRD Pro gets heavy-duty Fox dampers. It handles really well off road, while the traction and stability control are low-key enough to be effective without interfering under a broad range of conditions.

TRD Off Road and TRD Pro models with the 6-speed automatic have Multi-Terrain Select, its dial located at the top of the windshield, presumably so an offroad charger can change modes without taking his eyes off the trail. The settings are Mud and Sand, Loose Rock, Moguls, Rock and Dirt, and Rock. The system affects a number of the truck’s dynamics, including throttle, and delivers the best theoretical traction for those conditions. For example, it allows a lot of wheelspin for Mud and Sand, but none for Rock.

There’s also hill-start assist and crawl control, which takes over the throttle and brakes at speeds up to 5 mph, so the driver doesn’t have to think about traction; just focus on steering around big rocks or logs. Excellent sight lines from the cabin make them easier to see.

The TRD Pro’s 16-inch alloy wheels are mounted with big Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires with Kevlar sidewall reinforcement. The wheels are smaller than standard, leaving room for more sidewall, which is needed in very rugged terrain. That’s where the thick skidplates come in, too.

A key element to these trucks is their durability. Owners who spend a lot of time bouncing their trucks along river banks or over rugged, rocky terrain will find a Tacoma holds up for more seasons of abuse than many other vehicles will. Only Jeep and Land Rover compare in this regard.

Walk Around

The new hood and blocky front fascia that came in 2016 doesn’t change the reality that the Tacoma basically looks like it did when it was new for 2005. It’s smoother, and the blocky fender flares are gone, and the hex pattern grille is subdued compared to the bigger Tundra.

The tailgate with Tacoma stamped on it looks industrial like the Tundra. The three-piece bumper made of fiberglass and resin makes it look different. It may not be rugged but it’s lightweight and easy to replace, if you don’t mind throwing away the easily broken one and paying for a new one.

The Pro looks more rugged, with its black alloy wheels and all-terrain tires, and lifted by one inch.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive
“”

We described the Tacoma as being possibly the most rugged midsize truck, and that includes the cabin. Comfort and amenities are not the Tacoma’s strong suits. The low roof and high floor requires climbing and ducking just to get inside, and when you get there you’ll find the seats uncomfortable. The Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon and Honda Ridgeline are more comfortable.

The seats are short and flat, the driver’s seat doesn’t raise or tilt (not even in the top Limited model), and there is no power adjustment, which comes standard on Canyon and Colorado. Maybe the lack of ability to raise the seat is because headroom is limited, especially with the available moonroof.

The leather seats offer slightly more support than cloth, but the seats across the Tacoma line are springy, foam-core affairs that put too much pressure on the seat bones and not enough support under the thighs. Back support is also poor.

All that said, the Tacoma is full of excellent details. There’s an acoustic glass windshield and a lot of sound deadening, and the lack of cabin noise makes it feel refined. There are some upscale materials on the horizontal dashboard, and the surfaces are coordinated. The rearview mirror has a GoPro mount. There’s touchscreen audio, and most models can do smartphone navigation.

In the back, the tailgate has a lock and damper to keep it from slamming down when you drop it with one hand. Rails in the bed have movable cleats and tie-down points. Some models have a deck-mounted 120-volt AC power outlet. There’s an available four-panel folding tonneau cover.

The folding rear seats in the Access Cab are very small, suitable for kids who think it’s fun to be put in a box and bounced for a while, and groceries that might not mind. The Double Cab’s full back seat allegedly seats three, while being split 60/40 with storage under the bench.

Summary

“”

The Toyota Tacoma is the best choice among mid-size pickups for regular travel over boulder fields and other rugged terrain. The cabin is tight and the seats are uncomfortable, however, making the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Honda Ridgeline better for commuting or as a second car. The Tacoma’s V6 is a more powerful and smoother engine than the four-cylinder, while getting the same fuel mileage.
