Top of the line styling, best in class! The truck presents like a truck while at the same time scores as a top-shelf SUV from the inside out. The long bed is just that, long on functionality and big on capability. This class, size and design of truck ensures heads turn as you drive by and no doubt fills driver and passengers with pride.
The style and sleek design of the Sport package TRD is huge from a drivers perspective. The interior is one the money for class and utility. Making the most of storage is critical in this cclass of trucks and Toyota makes the grade.
Future designs should incorporate more computer like interface with the trucks performance parameters. Enhanced read-outs would allow for ease of understanding and insight into status of vehicle and directional control.
Awesome truck! I previously owned a 2004 Chevy Silverado and went to the 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road, and have no complaints! The off road capabilities are amazing and with the 4.0 engine, you can do just about anything and go anywhere. This truck can do it all, from launch a boat to rough trails in the desert! in addition to off road the tacoma handles extremly well on surface streets. All around GREAT truck!
Off road capabilities, 6 cd in-dash CD player, steering mounted controls, Rugged design, fuel efficency.
I have owned several trucks and this is by far the best I owned. I have driven it long on long trips and it is comfortable to drive. The truck feels very solid on the road, much more car like than the past without being a car. I like trucks and didn't want to own a car. The 4 door models give quite a bit of leg room not at all like the older double cabs. Toyota's build quality is the bench mark of the industry. The 4.0 liter V-6 is like a n8 with better gas ratings. 4X4 TRD package is nice and the 4x4 is one of the best I owned. Driving through the tough beach sand is easy.
Composite bed, tie down rails, 4x4, TRD package, build quality, ride quality.
The only thing that bothers me is that the air vents don't adjust high enough and they hit your hands on the steering wheel. The rail system could be a bit nicer. After that I can't see the need for improvement.
