This is a great little truck. The
steering feel is better than my
Maxima, and the truck is very
responsive to quick steering actions.
There isn't a ton of power from the
2.4L automatic, but I bought it for a
daily driver and to haul things for
the house, so it's just what I need.
The stepside bed really sets off the
styling of the truck, and I've only
seen one other stepside Tacoma with
the same wheels that mine came with.

My 2001 2.4L Automatic Tacoma has been a
blast to own and drive. While it's not the tire-
burning monster of a musclecar, it gets me to
where I want to go in comfort. On 9+hr trips
my back doesn't hurt and that's a good sign.
Mechanically this thing is great. I expect
many many years and 200,000+ miles of
trouble-free service out of this vehicle. This
was my first NEW vehicle purchase and the
whole experience with Toyota and my Toyota
dealer has been positive. I
would purchase it again, and recommend this
truck to anyone who's wanting to get an
inexpensive (but nice) truck.
Toyota releases the Double Cab. A new StepSide version is available, and the S-Runner sport truck debuts. Revised front styling and new alloy wheels give the 2001 Toyota Tacoma a more rugged look. New exterior colors and option package content shuffling sum up the obvious changes for 2001.
