A brief background and specifications for the 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Several major option packages' standard features are discussed in addition to standard features for the three trim styles: regular, extended cab (Access Cab), and crew cab (Double Cab).
While Toyota has been marketing and selling their compact trucks in the US since 1964, they were arguably most successful in 1995 with the unleashing of their sixth-generation truck-the Toyota Tacoma. All Tacomas have the option of 2- or 4-wheel drive. In addition to the three trim styles, several optional packages are available for almost any type of person.
The PreRunner is a 2WD truck that has the look, feel, and suspension of its 4WD counterpart. The 2 wheel drive X-Runner access cab is the sport truck, with a V6, 6-speed manual transmission, sport-tuned suspension, and additional structural bracing underneath. The SR5 package includes color-keyed and chrome trim, intermittent wipers, and an upgraded interior trim. The TRD sport package features performance suspension and upgraded tires. Last, the TRD off-road package features heavy-duty tires and off-road suspension.
There are two engines available for the Tacoma: a 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine with 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, and a 4.0-liter, six-cylinder engine with 236 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The transmission options include a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic for the four-cyliner engine, and a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic for the V6. Maximum tow rating is 6,500 lbs. for the V6.
Base MSRP for the Tacoma start at $14,345 and go up to $26,180.
