2014 Toyota Tacoma Exterior

2014 Toyota Tacoma Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Midsize pickup truck
  • Three cab styles, two bed sizes
  • Two engine options: four-cylinder or a V-6
For those who want the flexibility of a truck but don’t want or need a full-size solution, the 2014 Toyota Tacoma is a slightly smaller truck that’s still plenty big enough for most jobs.

The Tacoma is offered in three cab styles (regular, Access, and Double), with regular and access cab models featuring a six-foot bed while the double cab offers a five- or six-foot bed. The flexible Tacoma is also offered in a variety of trim levels that range from work truck basic, to off-road packages, to well outfitted trucks with numerous bells and whistles on the interior. In the bed, there is a dent-resistant liner to protect the metal and a 115-volt power outlet is optional. Wheels are offered in a range of sizes from 15 to 18 inches. Off-road models come with a specialized suspension and a skid plate to protect powertrain components.

Under the hood, the Tacoma has two engine flavors. The base engine is a 159-hp, 2.7-liter four-cylinder mated to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful 236-hp, 4.0-liter V-6 is also available, with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.

Inside, regular cab models only offer a three-seat front bench, while access cab models seat four, and double cab models can fit five. The interior is no-frills in its design, with a large dashboard and a monochromatic color scheme (lots of black). Standard interior features include air conditioning, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB/iPod port, which is strange considering power windows/locks are optional. Also available are cruise control, a leather steering wheel and shift lever, and navigation.

The 2014 Tacoma got a four-star overall crash test rating from the NHTSA. Standard safety features include six airbags, an electronic stability system, traction control, antilock brakes, and front active head restraints. A rearview camera is optional for safer reversing.
