New 2015 Toyota Tacoma, a mid-size type of truck that is still in business, provides confident practicability for drivers.
It is offered in two configurations of cab: Access Cab and Double Cab. The PreRunner and TRD Pro are also available. The last is perfect for those who prefer tough off-road driving.
Exterior features more distinct radiator grille and more cone-shaped headlights. Comparing to another Toyota’s model, Frontier, it has more conventional and simple appearance. Both versions of cabs have standard six-foot and one-inch bed, whereas Double Cab also provides 5-foot short bed as an option. Texture and look of the plastic materials used inside the cabin were greatly improved. Back-lit gauges and decorative parts boost the feel of high-quality of this car. Sound system is improved by satellite radio functionality and 6 speakers. Bluetooth capability and USB/iPod port are also offered. Entune is also available for Tacoma with navigating functionalities, voice-command control and other features.
If you drive alone and don’t need to take much stuff, four-cylinder 2.7 liter engine-equipped 2015 Toyota Tacoma serves as a good choice for you providing 159 horsepower. The perfect transmission for this motor would be a 5-speed manual with rear-wheel drive (RWD), because 4-speed automatic will not let you obtain swift acceleration and high fuel efficiency. Another engine is V-6 4.0 liter that produces 236 hp. It gives certain power for driving with heavy cargo. Standard 5-speed automatic is a good transmission for this engine.
Cars like this usually can’t brag about fuel efficiency specs, but in case of Tacoma used engines somewhat improve the situation. RWD models with four-cylinder reach 21/25 mpg (city/highway) and with V-6 – 17/21. AWD models have the lowest fuel economy rates – 16/19.
Price is not as high - 2015 Toyota Tacoma MSRP starts from $20,965.
