2015 Toyota Tacoma Price and Review

Toyota Tacoma is probably nearing the end of its second generation as it hasn’t been changed for 10 years now, and begins to show its age. This mid-size pickup is a solid choice for those that don’t intend to haul 10,000 pounds on a daily basis, but has its flaws, it has to be said.

Regular, Access and Double cab are offered with two power-train options. Base 2015 Toyota Tacoma engine is 2.7L 4-cylinder with 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for stronger 4.0L V6 which delivers 236 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. There’s a great deal of choice in transmission too, as Tacoma is available with 5 and 6-speed manual gearboxes, and also with 4-5-speed ECT-i’s.

As Tacoma is probably heading for another carryover, pretty much everything should remain the same. There’s still a pronounced chrome-bound grille with raised hood and eye-poking fenders, both up front and at the rear. Back-door end offers the same vertical headlights that most pickups have nowadays. Fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway for RWD 5-speed manual, 4-cylinder model aren’t bad at all. However, V6 uses much more fuel and has ratings of 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

New Toyota Tacoma Interior and Exterior

Inside, 2015 Toyota Tacoma is uninspiring, to say the least, but that’s what you can expect from affordable vehicles. Fabric cloth or SofTex seat upholstery are coupled with some hard plastics in dashboard and door panels. The biggest downsides of Tacoma, besides its age, are its poor handling and ride quality, together with quite loud engines. These flaws have to, and, knowing Toyota, will be addressed before next-gen Tacoma gets off the assembly lines.

Instrument panel seems a bit cluttered with a few too many shapes, but at least 6.1-inch touch screen display looks good. You can listen to the music via 7-speaker JBL sound system which could be had with optional package. Safety isn’t top notch either, but at least Tacoma comes with six airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control, and brake assist as standard.

Price of new 2015 Tacoma Release Date

Price range of 2015 Toyota Tacoma models should remain where it is now and most affordable Tacoma will not cost more than $18,500 which is a fair price for mid-size pickup. However, long bed, double cab, 4WD and automatic gearbox raise the price to almost $29,000 which is quite expensive for the type of equipment and comfort you’ll get with it.
New Toyota Tacoma may well be the last Tacoma that’s going to be carried over, at least of second generation. When you look at one, it comes as no surprise and next-gen models are eagerly anticipated.
