She's Pretty... But She Works!
By Rick on


2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)


Toyota put a lot of thought into the Tacoma and the needs of a light truck owner. Pressed into service as a working pickup truck, I moved the entire contents of my house without a problem. As long as you don't exceed it's half-ton rating, just cram everything into the fully lined bed, tie down and go. The Tacoma looks sharp, rides high and solid, and is easy to handle on a congested city parkway or a spacious country backroad. The cab is very roomy, well- appointed, well-upholstered, and the AM/FM/CD is quite impressive for a stock system. The 4 cyl 2.7l engine lights off with a roar, sounding and feeling more like a 6. With gas prices these days, you can't beat its high 20's to near 30 MPG.

Favorite Features

Looks sharp, fully lined bed, adjustable cargo tie-downs, storage compartments in bed wall, awesome sound. The AC/sliding back glass/stylized rims package was a good addition. More affordable than the Colorado (looks like Chevy strips the base model then makes you buy everything all over again).

Suggested Improvements

Cruise control. The clock is hard to see in extreme brightness. Just shade it with your hand to read it, or look at your wrist watch. You'll need truck rope to keep large cargo from shifting, and a net to keep smaller cargo in place. No real performance or mechanical deficiencies on this truck.
