Find Used Toyota Tacomas in Utah

The Toyota Tacoma, and Toyota Hilux, are compact pickup trucks built and marketed by the Toyota Motor Corporation. The Hilux name was adopted as a replacement for the Stout in 1969, and remains in use worldwide. In North America, the Hilux name was retired in 1976 in favor of Truck, Pickup Truck, or Compact Truck, until it was renamed the Tacoma in 1995. In 1984, the Trekker, the camper version of the Hilux, was changed to the 4Runner in North America and Australia, and as the Hilux Surf in Japan. The product lines for North America and elsewhere diverged at that point and in many cases on a year for year basis the vehicles sold in North America only resemble the Hilux, with major mechanical/chassis differences.

The Toyota Tacoma is a compact pickup truck produced and manufactured by the Toyota Motor Company since 1995. The second-generation Tacoma was Motor Trend Magazine's Truck of the Year for 2005. The Toyota Tacoma is named after the City of Tacoma, Washington, USA.

At the 2004 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota unveiled a bigger and more powerful Tacoma. This new Tacoma was available in eighteen different configurations, which included three cab configurations, four transmissions, two engines, and two bed lengths. The Tacoma's 4.0-liter 1GR-FE V6 took the place of the original 3.4-liter V6. It produces 236 horsepower (176 kW) and 266 foot-pounds of torque. The smaller, but all-new 2.7-liter 2TR-FE 4-cylinder alternative in less expensive models is rated at 159 hp (119 kW) and 180 lb/ft (244 N/m). During Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom, multiple Toyota Tacomas have been observed in use by Special Forces units of the U.S. Army.

The Tacoma and Hilux share the same body, but the chassis is significantly different in the Tacoma and believed to be much weaker. The gasoline engine used is significantly quieter than the diesel engines used in the HMMWV. The front headlights have been modified to work in IR, in order to work with night vision. Toyota sells around 190,000 Tacomas annually. In 2005 Toyota Motor Corporation sold 189,987 Tacomas, better than any other compact pickup in its class. Tacoma sales make about 10 percent of Toyota Motor Corporations annual sales. "With rising gas prices gluing full-size trucks to dealer lots, folks who still need a pickup's utility should find that the midsize and more fuel-efficient 2009 Toyota Tacoma is an ideal alternative."  says Edmunds From March 2006 to March 2007 Tacoma sales have steadily risen. "The base price for the 2009 Toyota Tacoma is a mere $15,170. That's almost $10,000 below class average. The fact is, as the sales numbers attest, if you want a small pickup and willing to give up the room, horsepower and hauling capacity of the bigger trucks, the Tacoma is hard to beat. " adds The Auto Channel In March 2006 Toyota sold 9,185 (4x2) Tacomas, in March 2007 Toyota sold 10,851 (4x2) Tacomas. Consumer reports show an increase in sales (up 7.6 percent from August 2006).
