The current Tacoma has had few styling changes since it went on sale in 2005, but Toyota continues to entice buyers to its midsize pickup truck with various trim packages. Earlier this year, the Tacoma added the go-anywhere TRD T/X Baja Series truck for the off-road enthusiast, and now it's adding the Limited model to appeal to buyers looking for a more luxurious-ish version of the popular truck. The 2012 Tacoma is pictured above since Toyota has not yet supplied images of the 2013 Tacoma (including the Limited).

Toyota's press release does not list the pricing for the 2013 Tacoma's Limited Package, but it is listed on the configurator as a $7,345 option. For this price, the Tacoma is upgraded with leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever, SofTex heated front seats and Display Audio with navigation, Entune infotainment and JBL speakers. Visually, the Tacoma Limited gets its bling on with plenty of shiny stuff including 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome on the grille, fog light surrounds, door mirrors and handles, as well as a big chunk of chrome on the rear bumper.

Interestingly, Toyota's website only shows the Limited Package available on the Tacoma Double Cab V6 4x4 long bed that starts at $28,085, meaning that going all in with the Tacoma Limited would run $35,430. Scroll down for the official details.

      This truck is WAY overdue for a remodel. It needs a new set of engines, new styling, and a new direction. My hope is a small diesel in a small truck, but I don't think Toyota has the cojones and would rather make the first (and an utterly useless) Prius Hybrid Tacoma long before...

      I would buy a Tacoma in a heartbeat if they offered a more powerful 4 cyl. I don't understand why we're stuck with just 159hp in the Taco when the same exact motor in the Highlander offers 187hp. I guarantee you the extra 28 hp would make for a much more pleasant driving experience AND get better mpg. My dad has a 4cyl Taco and it's painfully slow, and it only gets "ok" mpg. My uncle has a V6 Taco and it's plenty powerful but returns just 16-17 mpg.

        I agree. I don't understand in this day and age with DI and engine management up the wazoo, why they can't get 200 hp out of a 2.7L 4-Cyl and make it run on regular unleaded. That would be plenty of pep for a standard cab 4x4 Tacoma.

      Long bed only? Well that eliminates any 6-speed options as well. And why so much chrome? When did luxury mean chrome?

        Unfortunately luxury implies chrome. I don't know why. I hate it. Look at the Optima turbo. They took a good looking car in the SX trim and made a limited version that just looks tacky with the chrome they added. As far as this being limited in configurations, I wouldn't worry. Aside from the heated seats, there's nothing really exclusive about this model. They added some chrome. No reason to really buy this unless you want more chrome and heated seats. I surely wouldn't trade my 09 Tacoma 4wd for it. I got the Sport package cause i wanted all colored keyed parts, not chrome.

      Nice truck, but I've always thought the front end on this version looked a little 'off'. Wish they went back to the older, cleaner version. Lind of like when they ruined the Dodge Dakota with the later years' editions that IMO didn't look as clean as the earlier generations. Ah, looks are subjective I guess...

      This rig is a bit long in the tooth, but still weathers on because it doesn't have much competition. Hopefully the upcoming "small" truck offerings from GM kick Toyota into gear on creating something a bit more modern, and that gets better fuel economy.

      How about stop giving us fancy packages that just make it more expensive than a comparable full size truck and give us things that people want, like a Diesel option and the manual trans optional across the board, not just limited to a couple models. $35k for a midsize truck? Go stick it. Also, Its time for a redesign. The trapezoidal wheel arches need to go.

      I've never owned a small pickup and still think about it, so I took a look at the Tacoma recently since it's really the only smallish one left. But. A 2WD regular cab only comes with a bench seat, and not even a split bench with reclining backs like the Ranger used to, but a genuine one-piece, fixed-back bench straight from the 70s except it's not vinyl. You want individual seats with reclining backs, you must buy a 4WD regular cab, or a 2WD club cab. Well. The 4WD is too tall and too gas-*******, and the club cab is too long and awkward-handling. Oh, well, maybe I'll buy a 2-door coupe, another style I've never owned but wanted to.
