2011 Toyota Tacoma
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
Toyota has made a lot of improvement to the 2011 Tacoma. They have discontinued three of their models to bring five new, more fuel efficient models to meet the economy's demand for more fuel efficiency from their vehicles. For example, a five speed manual gets an estimated 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg when driving on the highway. The same truck with an added off road package gets about 18 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. The five speed automatic averages around 17 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Add a 4x4 package and you get 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg driving on the highway. This great mileage for a small truck. As for new features, Toyota now offers A/C in all models of the Tacoma and a CD player with an AM/FM radio, an MP3/WMA auxiliary jack, and it comes with 4 speakers in a standard cab, and 6 in a double. An excellent upgrade for the audio system comes with a six CD in-dash changer, XM radio, a free 90 day trial subscription to XM radio and an extra speaker in double cab trucks. Along with the great new features in the new Tacoma, Toyota also offers a wonderful Basic Limited Coverage Warranty. This includes a 3 year/36,000 mile Comprehensive Warranty, a 5 year/60,000 mile Powertrain warranty, and a 5 year/unlimited mile Corrosion Perforation Warranty. Setting aside fuel efficiency and warranty coverage, the Tacoma also has a lot of power to offer.
Over all Toyota's new 2011 Tacoma pick-up truck deserves its place as the number one rated light truck since 2005. The power of the engines, along with great fuel economy, a large bed, a roomy and luxurious interior, and so many safety features definitely make it a truck worth buying.
