Compact Pickup


2012 Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma keeps breaking records, winning the Vincentric Best Value in America Award for the eighth year in a row. This means it hasn’t left the winner’s circle since Vincentric began determining best value winners back in 2005 when gasoline was a mere $1.77 per gallon. This high-value compact pickup took the victory with the lowest rate of depreciation, lowest total maintenance and repair costs, and the best fuel economy in its class, once again leaving its competitors in the dust.


Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
