2005 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab V6 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


We traded in our 2000 Tacoma on the new
2005. The differences are dramatic.
Larger & more comfortable cabin –
particularly the new seats are very
much appreciated. The ride is much
improved, even with the TRD pkg. The
rear doors are a big improvement. The
new 6-cylinder engine really gets out
and moves this truck. It’s too new to
give much info on fuel economy, but on
paper it gets nearly the same as our
2000 Pre-runner w/a 4 cylinder. The
one thing that I do miss is the “grab
handle above the passenger’s door.
It’s a very sharp looking truck !!

Best Features

Lots of power - very smooth engine. Seats are very comfortable. Towing pkg. gives this truck some great features - oil & tranny coolers.

Worst Features

There is no automatic available w/the 4 cylinder. I like the grab handle above the door on the passenger's side - like the old model had. Storage compartments in back are long & narrow &could use some improvement.
