Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2012 Toyota Tacoma SUV/Truck

The Toyota Tacoma is a top choice in the midsize pickup segment thanks to its highly capable nature and wide array of configurations. For 2012 it gets updated styling inside and out, plus several new high-tech entertainment features.

The 2010 Toyota Tacoma is getting up there in age, but in this less-than-competitive class, it’s unquestionably the segment leader.

Despite the slippery grade and a dicey maneuver, the Toyota Tacoma trudges forward without tipping, rolling or foundering in what becomes a keen demonstration of its 4WD ability.

The 2010 Toyota Tacoma is a great overall truck that can go anywhere and will keep everyone comfortable on the way. It may take some getting used to for truck newcomers, but it will get the job done.

The 2011 Toyota Tacoma (view photos) is a solid performer. It’s an attractive truck and one that feels like the right size for many drivers who want lots of capability without having to park a much larger truck in the garage.

The 2011 Toyota Tacoma is a good example of what these compact-class trucks offer in comparison to full-size trucks. It looks great, drives in a lively and entertaining way and gets good fuel economy.

The Tacoma V6 Double Cab is a jack-of-all-trades, or damned near. But, frankly, the price is a big impediment to me trundling down to my local Toyota dealer, checkbook in hand.

The Toyota Tacoma is available with a reasonable level of dashboard technology, which is surprising for such a simple, brutal truck. You can easily skip most of the off-road options and save a small fortune.

The 2011 Toyota Tacoma made every trip to the grocery store and school pickup lane an adventure. It fit two kids, but there were some complaints from the backseat as our test drive wore on.

There’s no doubting the Tacoma’s versatility. Unfortunately, it still has a price that can start just over $16,000 and come close to $30,000.
