Year 1995 was the time when the Toyota launched its all-new pickup truck named Tacoma, an Indian word that means Mount Rainier from where its image of strength and power is being evoked. This vehicle is Toyota's compact truck that is offered in Regular cab, extended Xtracab, and 4-door Double Cab configurations. The Toyota Tacoma features a fresh array of high performance engines to which are the 142-horsepower, 2.4-liter four cylinder with 160 pound-feet of torque for the 2-wheel drive and the 150 horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder producing 177 pound-feet of torque for the 4-wheel drive, while a newly built up 190-horsepower, 3.4-liter, V6 producing 220 pound-feet of torque is available on both configurations.
For the reason the Toyota Company was so much concerned with safety, a standard driver-side airbag, center high-mount stop light and adjustable seat-belt anchors, side-view mirrors together with an optional four-wheel anti-lock braking system were added. And not only that, it also had a side-door impact beams and three-point, automatic and emergency locking retractor seatbelts in outboard positions.
By year 1999, the Tacoma PreRunner was introduced copying the four wheel model but with only two-wheel drive. Added to the PreRunner Xtracab model is the Regular Cab. A year after, the Tacoma StepSide that comes in a sporty stepside package and a added a young-looking option to the Tacoma lineup appeared. And by year 2001, it was followed by the Double Cab and S-Runner 4x2, aside from having a new model year with aggressive new styling changes, a number of upgrade packages, and four new exterior colors. The term prerunner is used in off-road rallies to describe a truck that pre-runs the course. And that the stability and traction controls became standard on four-wheel drive and PreRunners by the year 2004. The recent Toyota Tacoma has accounts for 10 percent of Toyota's U.S. sales. New for the 2004 Toyota Tacoma includes a PreRunner V6 2WD and V6 4WD trims that offer an available Vehicle Stability Control for 2004 and 4WD trims that features an Active TRAC traction control system for rugged off-road conditions.
