Yesterday, I was feeling a bit down about my 1979 Jeep Cherokee Golden Eagle after discovering that its engine is basically shot. But today I’m all cheered up, because my friend Jamie reminded me of what my Golden Eagle is not: a totally rotted out shitbox. Seriously, just looking at these pictures of a first-gen…
A Seattle radio station, KIRO, found surveillance footage yesterday that showed a stunningly inept attempt to break into an employee’s Toyota Tacoma. With a mop. And the attempted auto-thiever somehow ended up unconscious at the end. Even better, they had a sportscaster give the whole thing a play-by-play.
My Toyota Tacoma has proven to be a hard worker ever since I gave it a minor overhaul a while back. However, there are a few mechanical issues that I failed to address the first time around. Most Tacoma owners would probably grow used to them and say “that’s just how it is.” But I had to fix them.
Ever see a build so insane, lovely and delightful that you know you just have to watch it in action? Someone stuffed the legendary boost monster 3.0-liter 2JZ-GTE engine from a Toyota Supra into a humble Toyota Tacoma, and it is my everything.
The biggest trend in the auto industry right now is that the used car market is oversaturated, and now is the time to get a deal on a pre-owned model. Of course, the exception to that rule is the Toyota Tacoma, and it boggles my mind what people are willing to pay for these.
When you want the utility of a truck, the park-ability of a car and would like to attempt to remain financially responsible, you may find yourself looking at used compact pickup trucks. Anyone who has ever considered looking into the market of practical-size used trucks knows that there is one model that tops the list…
An 18 year-old driving a stolen Toyota Tacoma running from the police in Webster Parish, Louisiana hit a set of spike strips going 115 mph, subsequently barreled off of the road and into a drainage ditch, launched the truck into the air and landed on a car parked at a restaurant.
The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is Toyota’s toy for the off-road enthusiast. Big bouncy Fox shocks, armor plates underneath, CRAWL-control mode and even a built-in GoPro mount. So we chased a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon into the mud to find out what all those accessories are really worth.
AT Overland’s new Tacoma Habitat package looks like a really elegant solution for off-road camping comfort without the mass of a full-on RV.
Toyota sent their pro drivers Andy Bell and Ryan Millen to take the 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro to the western hemisphere’s northernmost road for some spectacular photo ops. The white truck can be hard to spot in the snow, but when you can see it, it’s quite a sight to behold.
Hey, check out that four-by-four! (Get it? Get it??? That’s the line Marty McFly, the star of the Back to the Future, those movies about the car, says when he sees a Toyota truck that’s just staggeringly beautiful, in the movie.) Anyways, it was such a great truck that Toyota decided to make another one, this time…
Documents that appear to have come from a dealer’s meeting lay out a pretty complete price and configuration list for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Check it out right here.
Toyota’s “Ever Better Expedition” sounds like the coolest corporate retreat ever; it’s a 110-day transcontinental drive with a fleet of Toyotas including a Land Cruiser 200 and this absurd Sienna minivan, which they’re calling the Ultimate Utility Vehicle.
Want to know what thirty years of evolution looks like on the Toyota trucks timeline? This infographic breaks down the differences between the 1986 pickup we all love and the 2016 Toyota Tacoma we’re eagerly anticipating. The vehicles are actually... pretty similar.
BMW says that all-wheel-drive M cars are coming soon. That may be totally unnecessary, because this rear-drive M4 seems to put the power down just fine in a snow-pulling match against at four-wheel-drive Tacoma.
Looks like somebody found a next-generation (2016?) Toyota Hilux hiding under a tarp and was kind enough to beam their pictures to the internet. Looks a bit less aggressive than our 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but it's unmistakably truck. What do you think?
For years Toyota has been able to sell the Taco on the back of its history building simple, indestructible trucks. They still do, owning a huge portion of the midsize truck market with a great product that essentially is sold with no engine. That's going to change, with the 2016 Toyota Tacoma getting the new…
This morning Toyota figured out how the Internet works and released the non-embargoed official photos of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma out to the world. Here it is, in all its trucktacular, Texas-built glory.
This is the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma, with a new look after its first major redesign in almost a decade. It definitely has a Tundra-like vibe, but also is similar to more European/Japanese offerings in profile. What do you think?
