Tacoma. Toyota says the name is supposed to suggest the rugged outdoors, as well as strength and adventure.
Two-wheel-drive Tacomas get a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder base engine, rated at 142 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to towing power, four-cylinder models can handle up to 3,500 pounds. Driving the 2004 Toyota Tacoma is easy enough thanks to its compact dimensions. Both four-cylinder engines offer adequate acceleration. Handling is competent on pavement, and the brakes are strong.
Toyota also offers Tacomas with a "PreRunner" designation. PreRunners are 2WD trucks that have the looks and heavy-duty suspension of 4WD models. . The Double Cab is a compact crew cab that offers four full-size doors and a longer passenger compartment for people who want a pickup and an SUV but can't afford both. In order to keep the overall length reasonable for on- and off-road maneuverability, the Double Cab's bed length is shortened to 61.5 inches.
Tacoma's interiors are industrial in design but are constructed of high-quality materials. Switchgear is logically placed and easy to use and overall the cabin is what you expect from a truck of its sort.
