The Tacoma model line has been around since 1995. The 2007 is a carryover from 2006, shown here, with minor interior refinements.
Our Tacoma was equipped with one of two SR-5 option packages, and it includes color-keyed front bumper, chrome grille surround, intermittent wipers, and upgraded interior trim.
There are two engine choices for the 2007 Tacoma. Smaller cab models come with a 159 horsepower, 2.7 liter, 4-cylinder engine. But all four-door Tacoma's come standard with a 4-liter V6, with 236 horsepower, and 266 pound feet of torque. All V6 Tacoma's come with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. Plus, all Tacoma's with the automatic transmission benefit from hill-start assist control and downhill assist control.
For serious off-roading, the new Tacoma can also be equipped with the TRD off-road package, with a host of beefy underpinnings.
V6 Tacoma's have a hefty, 6500 pound towing capacity.
The Tacoma's pickup bed is a revolutionary composite design that features built-in storage units, adjustable tie-down anchors, and an optional 400-watt electrical outlet.
There's four-wheel anti-lock brakes standard, along with electronic brake force control and brake assist. Stability control is available on the PreRunner Double Cab, along with front seat side airbags, and full-length head curtain airbags.
The 4 by 2 Tacoma with the 4 cylinder engine and manual transmission will give you 23 miles per gallon city, and 28 miles per gallon highway, according to EPA estimates.
The suggested manufacturer's base price for the 2007 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab 4 by 2 is $14,180. The top of the line Double Cab PreRunner 4 by 4 starts at $24,635. And with every extra added to the tab, you'll land somewhere in the neighborhood of $30,000. But that kind of money would give you a V6-powered pickup that can run with the very best pickups in the class, and very nearly compete with several domestic V8-powered trucks.
And nobody has to tell you about Toyota's reputation for reliability and value. The 2007 Tacoma is just another example of Toyota's knack for getting things right.
