Used Toyota Tacoma Information
The best-selling midsize pickup truck on the market, the Toyota Tacoma was introduced as a compact truck in 1995 and became a midsize offering ten years later. The Tacoma replaced the Toyota Pickup, though the name change was not complete immediately with some 1996 models retaining the Pickup title. The new Toyota Tacoma was meant to be central to the North American market, which had different needs from the other compact truck markets around the globe.
Three engines were available in the first-generation Tacoma, including 2.4-liter and 2.7-liter four-cylinder options and a 3.4-liter V6. Today, four-wheel drive versions of the original Tacoma are often prized used car purchases, even at high mileage and rough use. Cosmetic changes and a handful of updates during the ten year span of the first-generation Toyota Tacoma kept it fresh enough to remain a high-selling truck on the market.
The second- and current-generation of the Tacoma entered the market in 2005. Bigger and more powerful, this Toyota Tacoma has several configuration options and two engines, a 2.7-liter four-cylinder and a 4.0-liter six-cylinder. Both were similar to engines carried over from the later models of the previous generation, though their design was new.
Restyling changes since 2005 have seen the Tacoma get some updates in its look. On the used market, Tacomas with the "chrome" package trims (chrome grille, running boards, etc) are most sought-after, but all Toyota Tacoma models sell well as used vehicles and have high value retention.
There are 18,597 used Toyota Tacomas in our used car listings, including the Toyota Camry, Toyota Corolla and Toyota RAV4. 51% of these vehicles have only one previous owner and 87% have no accident history.
