TOYOTA TACOMA

Compact Pickup, 2WD

Toyota Tacoma

For the third year in a row the 2WD Compact Pickup award goes to the Toyota Tacoma. This “back to back to back” performance was earned by consistently delivering high value, with the 2007 results showing a cost-of-ownership almost 7% lower than expected. The Tacoma received its strongest competition from the surprising Ford Ranger.
