TACOMA 4WD 2.7L 5 SPEED
By KEEP-ON-TRUCKIN' on
Vehicle2003 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI've always wanted a Toyota 4wd
pickup, and I bought one about a year
ago. It took me a while to get used
to the 2.7L engine and the 5sp. But I
was used to high reving engines, and
this one almost runs like a diesel.
Keep the revs low and change gears
early, and she runs great. This is
definitely a truck engine. You can
feel the torque on the low end. I had
an old Mazda B2000 and Nissan
Frontier, and liked them both. But
they would bottom out if I carried a
heavy load. Not this baby! The
Tacoma is made for haulin'! But don't
get the 4 cyl if you're always in a
hurry. It has plenty of power to haul
and tow, but its not a race engine.
Best FeaturesToyota quality. Lots of torque, strong suspension. And of course, the looks--Best looking 4WD truck out there, bar none.
Worst FeaturesUpdate the engine options to increase horsepower and MPG, but not lose the torque. (Both the 4 and 6 cyl engines are over 10 years old). Offer a crew cab with long bed and manual transmission.
