The Toyota Tacoma is America’s best-selling mid-size pickup. Like generations of Tacoma before it, this Toyota promises to go anywhere, look good doing it, and chug along for decades.
We weren’t blown away by the current-generation Tacoma when it debuted in 2016, though. It lacked the roomy cabin, eager acceleration, smooth ride, and modern infotainment system we appreciate in several rival pickups.

Prices start at $26,400 and we tested a TRD Pro crew cab that hit $47,955.
