These include 4- and 6-cylinder powerplants, three different cab configurations, and regular or off-road driveline options.

  • Carryover for 2010

The Toyota Tacoma is a midsize pickup truck. It's available in three cab sizes and several trim levels that allow the buyer to go with a very plain or a fully featured vehicle. The Tacoma received a small refresh for 2009 that included a revised grille and several option changes. The 2010 model carries over from the previous year.

The 2010 Toyota Tacoma is offered with a regular cab that seats 3; extended or Access Cab (seats 4, with reverse-hinged rear doors), or Double Cab (standard 5-seat crew cab). Regular and Access Cab Tacoma models feature 6-foot pickup beds; the Double Cab has a 5-foot bed, with a 6-footer available. The entry-level trim offers almost no amenities besides a 4-speaker sound system, but various option packages are available to add climate control, cruise control, on- and off-road performance features, a towing package, and much more.

Regular Cab Tacomas, and Access Cabs with 2-wheel drive (2WD), feature a 159-horsepower, 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with 2WD and automatic transmission, 17/22 with 4-wheel drive (4WD) and manual transmission, according to the EPA. (Two-wheel-drive models come with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel-drive Tacomas use only the manual transmission.) Tacoma Double Cabs, and Access Cabs with 4WD, feature a 236-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine, with standard 6-speed manual transmission. A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard on Tacoma PreRunner Double Cabs, and optional on other V-6 models. The V-6 engine with automatic transmission delivers 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, or 14/18 with manual transmission.

Standard safety features on the 2010 Toyota Tacoma include anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution, stability control, traction control, active front head restraints, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags. In government crash tests, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Tacoma 5 (out of 5) stars across the board in front- and side-impact tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Tacoma the highest-possible \"Good\" ratings in frontal-offset, rear-, and side-impact tests.

Starting MSRPs for the 2010 Toyota Tacoma ranged from $15,345 to $27,250.
