The Toyota Tacoma Access Cab remains largely unchanged from the outgoing model. It is available for sale in four trims and starts at $26,500. Two engines are on offer- a 159-hp 2.7L inline-4 and a 278-hp 3.5L V6, the latter standard on TRD models. The Tacoma has dull acceleration but boasts one of the best off-road capabilities in the segment. Its maximum towing capacity is rated at 6,800 pounds.

The cabin of the Tacoma is a mixture of hard plastics and good-quality materials but it benefits from an array of standard features. The infotainment system is intuitive and user-friendly while Toyota's Safety Sense P is standard on every Tacoma. Thus, it stands out from the crowd. The Tacoma will go up against the likes of the Chevrolet Colorado, the Nissan Frontier, and the Ford Ranger.
