2009 Tacoma Overview

The Toyota Tacoma is arguably the best truck in a field of outstanding midsize pickups.It's certainly the most popular: The Tacoma dominates the market for mid-size pickups.It comes in a wide range of configurations to please a wide range of buyers.

For 2009, all models and trim levels of the Tacoma receive as standard equipment Toyota's Star Safety System, which includes anti-lock brakes (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TC).An Automatic Limited-slip Differential (Auto-LSD), which uses brake intervention in place of a mechanical-type limited-slip to help reduce wheel-spin, is standard on all 2009 Tacoma models with the exception of those fitted with TRD Off-Road packages; those will have a separate locking differential.The Auto-LSD replaces the mechanical limited-slip in all applications where it was previously available.2009 Access Cab models have a redesigned rear seat for improved comfort, as well as standard power windows and door locks.2009 Tacoma SR5 models get new seat fabric.

The audio systems have been upgraded for 2009 and all come satellite-radio ready.The optional Premium JBL six-CD system is now Bluetooth-compatible and has an integrated satellite radio system that includes a three-month trial subscription to XM Satellite Radio.And there are numerous interior and exterior trim enhancements and changes for 2009.

For those who drive hard, there is a dealer-installed TRD Big Brake system developed by engineers with the Toyota Technical Center and Toyota Racing Development to provide effective braking performance under sustained heavy use.It improves pedal feel and substantially reduces brake fade from repeated high-speed applications.

The Tacoma offers a comfortable cab, a refined ride, and quality construction.Its on-road handing is responsive, its off-road capability is proven.The Double Cab delivers more rear-seat comfort than most of the competition, with enough room to rival a small sedan.Properly equipped V6 models can to tow up to 6,500 pounds.

Models range from a $15,000 work truck with a four-cylinder and 2WD to a loaded V6 4WD Double Cab Long Bed with all the candy.The base model is among the few regular-cab pickups still available, as the market has moved to extended-cab and crew cab styles; it excels at durability and reliability.

Tacoma PreRunner models can make you feel like Ironman Ivan Stewart practicing for the Baja 1000, while the sporty X-Runner may make you feel like Rod Millen preparing to blast up Pike's Peak.

Compact pickups aren't what they used to be.For one thing, they're no longer compact.Nor are they uncomfortable.They're more comfortable and more capable than ever before.
