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.

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. The A-TRAC
System is essentially an electronic locking front and rear differential.
The Off-Road package adds things like special Michelin LTX2 tires, Bilstein
Shock Absorbers, Skid Plates, and more. The top of the line engine is a 5.7
liter V-8 that makes 381 horsepower and is linked to
a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Toyota is aiming to top the sales mark from last year by 30%. And the brass
at Toyota want you to know that the 2014 Toyota Tundra is designed,
engineered, and built in America.

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
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
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
3) GMC Sierra 2500HD
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
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.

Competitors: Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier
What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the Tacoma: The Tacoma is in a
class that barely has any trucks for it anymore, this Tacoma generation
hasn't seen a full redesign since 2005, however there has been minor tweaks
in the recent years like LED Tailamps and a upgraded infotainment system as
well as bluetooth. Power comes from a 2.7 L 4-Cylinder or a 4.0 L V6
through many options through a 5-Speed Manual or Automatic and many more.
Is this enough for the Tacoma to compete in this class? Of course it is the
Tacoma dominates this class, with way more outdated competitors like the
Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon that stopped production in 2013, however
you can still find one for the 2012 model year. All in all we think the
Tacoma is a smart choice.
