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


05 Double Cab S/B 4X4 V6 5Speed Auto,
SR5 with trailer towing, limited slip

Nice truck, much better interior room
(I fit!!) I’m 6’6” and a bit fluffy,
plenty of power, but smooth and quiet.

I’ve only had my truck for about 1.5
weeks, but I’m impressed. The new 5
speed transmission was built for this
V6 and economy. In town the engine is
turning 1,200-1,700 RPM getting around
18 MPG. On the road @77 MPH / 20,6
MPG, @ 63 / 23.6 MPG. At 70 the engine
is only turning 2K

The ride is a little stiff (it's a
truck ya know) but comfortable, quiet
on the road.

I compared Dakota, Canyon/Colorado and
Tacoma, The Taco won hands down for
value, fit and finish

Best Features

Economical, maneuverability, overall size (not too big or small), storage compartments behind and under rear seating, comfortable ride and handling, for what I wanted it was very competitively priced

Worst Features

needs tie down cleats in the front of the bed, expanded option packages (not limited by location)
