http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/tacoma/2012/?id=32972 Toyota has been selling compact pick-up trucks here in the U.S. ever since 1968, and in 1995 the Toyota Tacoma made its debut. Fast forward to 2012 and the Toyota Tacoma is the best selling compact truck in the U.S. by a fair margin. And for the 2012 model year the Tacoma has gotten a nice little refresh. On the outside the Tacoma sports a new front grill, hood, updated headlights, and new bumpers. On the inside some new additions are a sporty gauge cluster, new trim, seat fabrics, all weather flooring, and more. The base price for the 2012 Toyota Tacoma is $16,875 with the opt of the line model selling for $27,835. The Tacoma comes in many different trims and configurations. There is a an X-Runner edition that features many sport truck options including a lowered stance, wider wheels, and ground effects. On the opposite end of the spectrum there are many off-roading trims available like the PreRunner and T|X Pro package which adds a lifted suspension and rear locking differential. Of course you can get the Tacoma in a variety of cab configurations like the regular standard cab, the access cab, and the double cab. You can get the bed length sized short or long. On the 2012 Toyota Tacoma there are 2 different engine sizes: a smaller more fuel efficient 4-cylinder and a larger more powerful V-6. The 2.7 liter 4-cylinder engine makes 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is good for a truck at 21 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. The larger engine is a 4.0 liter V-6 that produces a healthy 236 horsepower and 266 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is rated at 16 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway.

These Top 10 Trucks are the perfect balance between utility and everyday needs. Today the best trucks have more features and are more comfortable than many cars on the road. This echo's the notion that a pickup truck can appeal to a wide range of people, not just those wearing a tool belt. 10) Chevrolet Colorado http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/chevrolet/colorado/?id=32972 If you desire a compact American pickup truck your options are limited. Thankfully Chevy makes just such a truck called the Colorado. This durable and reliable little truck has built up a solid reputation over the past couple of years resulting in it pick as a best pickup. 9) Nissan Frontier http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/nissan/frontier/?id=32972 Formerly known as the Nissan Hardbody, the Frontier has come full circle in delivering what America needs in these tough economic times: a compact truck that is inexpensive to buy and inexpensive to own. The Frontier pickup truck offers multiple configurations to suit your cargo and passenger needs. 8) Toyota Tacoma http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tacoma/?id=32972 Sometimes overshadowed by the Tundra, the Toyota Tacoma is the vehicle that put Japan on the map as far as pickup trucks go. The Tacoma is a Top 10 truck because it's built on a very solid foundation. 7) Nissan Titan http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/nissan/titan/?id=32972 Nissan was the first company to incorporate a 300 horsepower engine into their pickups. The V-8 Titan is the largest truck you can buy from Nissan and this pickup proves to be a very solid choice making this list of Top 10. 6) RAM 1500 http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/ram/1500/?id=32972 For many years the RAM was the ugly step child to Ford and Chevy trucks. But over the last few years, Dodge has been paying close attention to just how owners use their pickups. Now the RAM is one of the most versatile and functional trucks on the market. This Best Truck choice is so popular that the Chrysler Group has made the RAM division into its own brand. 5) GMC Sierra 1500 http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/gmc/sierra-1500/?id=32972 GMC has done an excellent job of distinguishing itself from Chevy by labeling their trucks "professional grade." Perception has become reality and today the GMC Sierra is seen as a high end truck to most consumers. The GMC Sierra is one of the Best Trucks you can buy. 4) Chevrolet Silverado 1500 http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/chevrolet/silverado-1500/?id=32972 The Battle between Ford and Chevy remains strong and is most prevalent in the war for Best Pickup Truck. While Ford may have an edge due to the newer body style, for some owners it's still Chevrolet or nothing. Despite its age the Chevy Silverado 1500 still remains both a workhorse and a good value. 3) GMC Sierra 2500HD http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/gmc/sierra-2500hd/?id=32972 The HD designation stands for Heavy Duty and the GMC Sierra 2500HD is as tough as they come. Whether you opt for the turbo-diesel engine of the gasoline powered motor; the Sierra in HD format is all about towing and hauling. This is the truck for those who are serious about pickups. The Sierra HD is one of the toughest trucks on this Top 10 list. 2) Toyota Tundra http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tundra/?id=32972 If there is one word to describe Toyota's commitment to making the best pickup truck in America: it's relentless. Toyota knew that in order to compete with the big 3, it needed to not only build a great truck, but they needed to build it here on American soil. Built in San Antonio Texas, the Tundra offers the perfect balance between drivability and capability. 1) Ford F-150 EcoBoost http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/ford/f-150/?id=32972 Ford's EcoBoost engine technology consists of direct injection and twin-turbochargers have proven effective in the line-up of cars, and now we find this engine making its way onto more F-150 trucks. Essentially this engine gives you V-8 power combined with the fuel economy of a V-6. This EcoBoost engine out powers many V-8 engines on the market with 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque while still getting the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid full sized pickup truck. On top of all that great technology, the Ford F-150 looks great. The exterior styling and wonderful interior hits the mark making this pickup our pick for the Top Truck in America.

2014 Toyota Tundra Truck First Drive, Off-Road Test, and Walkaround Video Review
The Toyota Tundra has always been known for its legendary quality, durability, reliability, and ruggedness. This great pick-up truck has been redesigned and re-engineered for the 2014 model year. The Tundra has 5 different trim levels starting with the base SR5 that costs $25,920 and topping out at the 1794 Edition costing $47,320. Check Out More on the 2014 Toyota Tundra http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/tundra/2014/?id=32972 Up front you will notice the massive front grille with a trapezoidal design. The whole front end is much more angular than last year's model. The headlights are all new and you will get daytime LED's on the higher trim levels. The 3-piece front bumper means customers can replace damaged sections resulting in lowered costs if necessary. The lines of the 2014 Toyota Tundra are much more chiseled and angular compared to the 2013 model. There is a pronounced character line that runs from the headlight all the way down the side of the truck. The taillights are all new and feature vortex generators to improve airflow around the vehicle. The tailgate has an integrated spoiler for better aerodynamics. There is a backup camera located in the tailgate handle for all models and the tow hitch is integrated into the frame at the rear axle. On the inside Toyota has adopted materials usually reserved for more upscale automobiles. The instrument cluster has been redesigned with a multi-function TFT screen displaying a multitude of engine vitals. The infotainment system has been revamped and you can access a ton of apps through the center touch-screen display. On the crew-max quad cab models the rear seats have been engineered to fold up in order to add yet a bit more cargo room. The 2014 Toyota Tundra is a very capable off-road pickup truck.

2013 Toyota Land Cruiser Test Drive & SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/land-cruiser/2013/?id=32972 The Toyota Land Cruiser has been around since the early 1950's when it was built for military use during the Korean War. A few years later the Land Cruiser became a capable civilian vehicle that could handle off-road conditions. The current 200-series Land Cruiser has morphed into a large luxury SUV but still retains its hard-core off-road ability. The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser has a base price of $78,555. For almost 60 years Toyota has been producing the Land Cruiser. This is a legendary off-road vehicle that has built a reputation for not only being capable but durable as well. Not to be confused with the Land Rover, the Land Cruiser really has some unique styling cues about it. The Land Cruiser has always been designed to be a gifted off-road sport utility vehicle and in many countries this is used as a police or military vehicle still to this day. Over the decades the Land Cruiser has really evolved; it's been manufactured in all shapes and sizes. Here in the U.S. we primarily get the 8-passenger 4-door version. Back in 1999, the Land Cruiser was converted over from a 6-cylinder to a V-8 which elevated the SUV's status to a more family friendly vehicle. Today there is a 5.7 liter V-8 engine that makes 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 13 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway. Overall the interior is great with the Land Cruiser having the ability to carry 8-passengers in comfort. The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser offers an amazing driving experience. Its size is not too large like a Suburban. Instead the Land Cruiser is the ideal size for an 8-passenger large SUV. This is a great vehicle that you will want to keep in your family for a long time.

New 2012 Toyota Tacoma
http://www.facebook.com/TheWorldnewCars Judging by the attention it's been getting lately, the refreshed 2012 Toyota Tacoma that's been revealed by the automaker will see its market success at the top of the compact pickup market secured in full for coming years. To update the looks, the new facelifted model sports a new hood, grille, headlights and front bumper among other minor details that should be enough to attract customers to this workhorse. Changes have also been made to the interior, where the Enture system that made its debut on the Prius V has been introduced. It allows for voice, touch screen and steering wheel mounted controls of the audio and infotainment systems. In similar fashion to Ford's SYNC systems, it provides the latest info on the weather, sports, stocks and even the price of a tank of fuel. The revised instrument panel and controls offer a more high-end feel and overall better quality. Under the bonnet, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V6 engines carry over, as does the TRD Supercharger kit that Boosts horsepower from 236 to 334 for the V6. For both Access and Double Cab models, the available option combinations are built on five core packages. The SR5 brings color-keyed overfenders and front bumper, chrome grille surround and chrome rear bumper, intermittent wipers and upgraded interior features and trim, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic transmission shift lever. Meanwhile, TRD Sport gets suspension tuning and lower-profile 265/65 R17 tires on 17-inch alloy wheels. This package also gives Tacoma a sporty look with fog lamps, hood scoop, TRD graphics and color-keyed rear bumper, mirrors, grille surround and door handles. TRD Big Brake systems provide better stopping power for sustained heavy use while also giving better pedal feel. No pricing information has been released yet, but we can expect little to be changed for this mild facelift job.

2012 Toyota Tacoma - Drive Time Review with Steve Hammes

2012 Toyota Tacoma Review
Just recently sold my Ranger and upgraded to this monster. This truck isn't even in the same league as the Ford Ranger. Although it does have its minor flaws, the Tacoma is a really awesome truck. Some people in online reviews have mentioned that they don't like the squishy feel of the brake pedal. Since the truck has ABS brakes, I felt like I did have to put a little more effort into stopping the truck. However, I eventually got used to it. Other handy features that I forgot to add: - Small storage compartments on the side of the truck bed. - Front passenger seat folds up so you can use the back of the seat as a tray. - Clutch start cancel button. - Rollover side air bag cancel button for off-road use. - Tilt and telescopic steering wheel. - Water bottle storage at the bottom of the driver and front passenger doors.
