2011 Toyota Tacoma Overview (See Available Styles)

Somewhere in between a small work truck and a full-size behemoth, the 2011 Toyota Tacoma is a dependable and sturdy truck that can get the job done.

The 2011 Tacoma is extremely versatile with three trim levels (Base, PreRunner and X-Runner) and three cab options: Regular or Access Cabs (extended, six-foot beds) and Double Cab (five- or six-foot bed). Two-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive available. Two powerful engine choices include a 159-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder mated to a standard five-speed manual (Regular and Access Cabs) or four-speed automatic transmission (standard on Double Cab), and a 236-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 mated to either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic. An automatic limited-slip differential is standard.

Competing with the Ford Ranger, Nissan Frontier, Dodge Dakota and Chevrolet Colorado, the 2011 Toyota Tacoma achieves competitive fuel economy with 14-20 mpg in the city and 18-26 on the highway. When properly equipped with the V-6 Towing Prep Package, the 2011 Toyota Tacoma can tow up to an impressive 6,500 pounds. The 2011 Tacoma boasts plenty of off-road capability, when outfitted with Toyota’s TRD Off-Road package which features appearance and performance-oriented upgrades like progressive-rate front springs, Bilstein shocks, BFGoodrich Rugged Trail tires, 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels, a street-tuned suspension and low-profile tires. The X-Runner is equipped with the 4.0-liter V-6 engine, six-speed manual transmission, 18-inch wheels, Bridgestone Potenza tires and a lowered, specially tuned suspension.

Once inside the 2011 Toyota Tacoma, you’ll notice that it’s not just the performance that will capture your attention. A rearview monitor system, premium seven-speaker JBL stereo system with six-CD changer, Bluetooth compatibility and XM Satellite Radio are available in the Double Cab, while all models feature a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and are MP3 capable.  The Regular Cab trims now feature bucket seats.

As for safety, the 2011 Toyota Tacoma boasts standard electronic stability control, driver and front-passenger active head restraints, side-impact and side curtain airbags and the Star Safety System, which includes antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist and traction control.

For all of your basic hauling, towing and off-roading needs, the 2011 Toyota Tacoma mid-size pickup truck is more than capable of getting the job done.
