In every way, this 2006 Toyota Tacoma improved on all the attributes that loyal Tacoma owners have cherished in the past, while increasing interior roominess and refinement. The Toyota Tacoma drives well and cruises nicely, it offers plenty of power from the 4.0-liter V6 engine that uses dual overhead camshafts and variable valve technology (called VVT-i) to optimize power and torque over a broad range of rpm. In action, it feels refined and delivers responsive performance. The five-speed Automatic transmission is super smooth and very responsive. Tests rate the engine at 236 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Properly equipped V6 models are rated to tow up to 6,500 pounds.
The Tacoma Pre-Runner is at the front of this mid-size class with its comfortable cab, color matched bed topper, refined ride, responsive handling, proven off-road capability, and quality construction. Perhaps most important, Tacoma enjoys Toyota's reputation for quality, durability and reliability. Big headlights and a bold grille highlight the front end. Flush rear surface glass and flush surface structures between the bumper sides and body give it a polished look. Pre-Runner models are distinguished by bold overfenders .Access Cabs feature large dual rear auxiliary doors, which are very good for gear.
All of the latest-generation of mid-size pickups have decent interiors, but the quality of Toyota's interior materials seems just a little better. The Tacoma features a comfortable cab trimmed with quality materials. The dimpled material on the dash and upper panels and the textured material on the lower dash and door trim look nice; it's hard plastic, but it looks soft.
Toyota Tacoma is among the best in class in all categories for mid-size trucks - value, walk around, interior, durability, handling, performance, need we say more?? Get it now! I mean... go right now....and buy this one!
