Toyota Tacoma

2015 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: 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: For 2015, the Toyota Tacoma loses its regular-cab body style but gains an off-road-ready TRD Pro Series model that has 16-inch black alloy wheels on all-terrain tires, Bilstein-brand shocks, unique front springs, and TRD (Toyota Racing Development) interior and exterior trim. Tacoma offers a wide and deep roster of models and solid overall performance. The new-for-2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trump Toyota’s long-serving compact pickup in terms of high-tech available features and overall sophistication, but still, Tacoma is a proven commodity that won’t steer you wrong. Plus, the significant revisions in store for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma should level the playing field.
