Tacoma Generations and Features

Toyota unleashed the Tacoma on the market in time for the 1995 model year, replacing the unimaginatively named "Toyota Pickup." This midsize truck took the market by storm, combining the dependability and quality associated with the Toyota brand with the ruggedness and versatility of a pickup truck. Toyota offered those first Tacomas with three cab designs: a two-door single row regular cab, a two-row Xtracab with two full-size and two half-size doors, and a four-door Double Cab with two full rows of seats. Drivers also have the option of choosing between rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Before folks knew it, the Toyota Tacoma had vaulted to the front of its class, becoming the best selling midsize truck in America.

2nd Generation

Not content to rest on its early success, Toyota decided to make a number of key upgrades on the Tacoma for the 2005 model year, initiating the second generation of this truck. The Xtracab was gone, replaced by the Access Cab with larger back doors and increased legroom in the rear seat. In addition, Toyota made safety a priority on the Tacoma, equipping the second-generation model with a set of standard features like anti-lock brakes, brake assist, LED headlights, electronic brake force distribution, and plenty of airbags. This generation also introduced vehicle stability and traction control as part of the Toyota Star Safety System, showing the continued commitment to safety technology.

The second-generation Tacoma comes with a choice of two exceptional engines. The 2.7-liter I-4 engine comes paired with either a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission. It can produce 159 horsepower and generate up to 180 pounds-feet of torque, with a great deal of efficiency. A 2012 Tacoma with this engine and the manual transmission can get 21 miles per gallon in city driving and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. Opting for an automatic transmission or four-wheel drive will reduce those numbers just slightly.

The other engine on the second generation Toyota Tacoma is a 4.0-liter V-6 gas engine with either a 5-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission. This engine provides greater power than the 2.7-liter I-4, up to 236 horsepower and 266 pounds-feet of torque. As a result, the Tacoma with the V-6 is rated to be able to tow up to 6,500 pounds and carry up to 1,650 pounds of payload in its cargo bed. This engine transforms the Tacoma from an efficient light-duty pickup to a real workhorse or off-road machine.

With the second generation Tacoma, Toyota continued to leverage the technological advancements made by the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) team. As a result, two new models of the Tacoma were introduced, the TRD Sport and the TRD Off-Road. The TRD Sport is designed to enhance the highway performance of the Tacoma, while the TRD Off-Road adds key features to improve the four-wheel drive performance of the Tacoma on off-road trails. In addition, Toyota discontinued the regular cab model of the Tacoma for the 2015 model year, so if you are looking for a used Tacoma with a regular cab, you will need to find one from an earlier year.

3rd Generation

The third-generation Tacoma was introduced in time for the 2016 model year, and it was even more advanced than its predecessor. Toyota decided to give the Tacoma a more aggressive look with a larger grille, projector-beam headlights, and an air dam in front to improve fuel efficiency. A number of great safety features were also added to the Tacoma, including a rearview camera and the advanced driver-assist features of Toyota Safety Sense P.

Just like the second-generation truck, Toyota offers two different engines on the third generation Tacoma. The standard engine is a very fuel-efficient 2.7-liter I-4 with either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. It produces 159 horsepower and generates 180 pound-feet of torque, and the 2015 model can get up to 19 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway when equipped with the automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

The larger engine option is a 3.5-liter V-6 with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. While this is a smaller engine than the 4.0-liter V-6 on the second-generation Tacoma, it is actually more powerful, able to provide 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. As a result, the Tacoma with this engine can tow up to 6,800 pounds and is particularly responsive off-road or on the highway.

Just like the 2015 model of the second generation Toyota Tacoma, the third generation model comes in either a Double Cab or Access Cab with a choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Toyota added a new TRD Pro trim that takes the best of the TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road, combining it with new features like FOX internal bypass shocks to create the ultimate off-road Tacoma. A used TRD Pro is a great way to explore the wild.

Does the Tacoma Have Heated Seats or Other Luxury Features?

While Toyota has always placed the greatest emphasis on performance and safety with the Tacoma, it has not ignored the desire for luxury features. A used Toyota Tacoma for sale might be equipped with all kinds of luxury features. This includes items such as heated SofTex-trimmed four-way adjustable front sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a JBL stereo system. In particular, look for the third-generation Tacoma's Limited trim. This includes standard heated front seats, leather upholstery, a power-operated moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate controls, a JBL stereo sound system, and more.

But luxury items are not limited to the Limited trim on the Toyota Tacoma. While you might have to shop around, you can find all sorts of tech and comfort features in a used model. In fact, all models of the Tacoma since 2016 have featured Toyota's Entune infotainment system, with prior models featuring it as an option since its introduction in 2013. This provides a color touchscreen allowing you to access such features as Bluetooth, a stereo sound system, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
