Shoppers who haven't looked at compact pickups in a while might be surprised to learn that most aren't really compact anymore. Bigger and stronger than the traditional compact, this 2007 Tacoma PreRunner can take on a surprising amount of towing and hauling duties thanks to its stout frame and 236-horsepower V6 engine.
Versatile and powerful, reviewers and owners conclude this Tacoma has no major faults. It has won two successive Editors' Most Wanted awards and ranks extremely high in Edmunds' True Cost to Own (TCO) measurements.
Also impressive is this Tacoma's overall interior design. With plenty of room in every direction, it avoids the claustrophobic feeling typically associated with previous compact pickup trucks. A composite cargo bed comes standard on all models and incorporates built-in storage units, adjustable tie-down anchors and even an optional 400-watt electrical outlet.
Generally, the larger the Tacoma you buy, the more features you get. This Double Cab, with four full-sized doors and a five-passenger cabin, comes with an overhead console, a six-speaker sound system, keyless entry, power features, and upgraded seat fabric. The PreRunner designation means the truck is RWD but has the buff look of a 4WD truck.
In NHTSA testing, this Tacoma received a top five-star rating for its protection of occupants in frontal and side-impact crashes. The IIHS posts a top rating of "Good" for offset frontal-impact protection.
This 4.0-liter V6 is a terrific all-around performer, with plenty of guts down low and a willingness to spin into the upper rev ranges. In terms of handling, this '07 Tacoma feels like a true pickup truck from behind the wheel. This is an excellent choice for those seeking a compact or midsized pickup.
