2013 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner 4dr Access Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
There are only a couple of choices for a mid-size pickup. The Tacoma is an average vehicle that could easily be much better.
All Tacoma's speedometers are off by 3 mph and all 4-cyl engines tick like toy engines.
The 4-cyl engines are less than adequate for a useful pickup truck.
The transmission has to downshift twice going up marginal grades at 65 mph. I want more mpg than the standard 1/2 Ton PU, but need enough power for adequate highway driving.
The simple improvements are needed to make this a much better truck.
Fix the speedometers please! Make the engine more quite and sound like a real truck.
Give the 4-cyl engines more power.
