Toyota Tacoma

2014 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab

Pros: Broad range of models and optional equipment; strong acceleration in V6 models; sturdy build quality; nicely assembled, rugged interior with large, easy-to-use controls

Cons: Unique X-Runner model is no longer available; cramped, uncomfortable back seat in “Access Cab” extended-cab models; tall step-in height on 4WD models; bouncy ride with off-road suspension

CG Says: Tacoma loses its street-performance X-Runner model for 2014, but otherwise holds the line with a wide and deep roster of models and solid overall performance. New and updated competitors may threaten Toyota’s dominance in this segment, but still, Tacoma is a proven commodity that won’t steer you wrong.
