2012 Toyota Tacoma Review

Overview
Welcome to where bold styling and off-road toughness meet…where full-sized performance comes in a compact package…the 2012 Toyota Tacoma. The versatile Tacoma is available in regular cab Access Cab with rear-hinged half-doors and the monstrous four door Double Cab. And built into every Tacoma is the unrustable dent resistant marvel – the composite inner bed. The Tacoma's base 2.7-liter four-cylinder features a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission that pumps out a powerful 159 horsepower. The available 4.0-liter V-6 borrowed from the 4Runner produces 236 hp and spins away with a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. The Tacoma has the muscle to take you where you want to go and the comfort and versatility to do it with style. Tough and Bold…the 2012 Toyota Tacoma: moving forward.
