Toyota has encountered, for the first time in several years, real competition in the midsize pickup truck category. Fortunately for the Japanese giant, its 2016 Tacoma is a better truck than ever before.
"Oh yeah, Toyota still makes the Tacoma." Admit it, that's what you just said to yourself. It's a perfectly natural reaction, but the Tacoma has been quietly anchoring its segment for years, outselling every other compact pickup without making too much of a fuss. Toyota hasn't neglected the Tacoma – it was updated in 2012 with a revised nose and interior as the most noteable changes.
