The Toyota Tacoma is a very popular truck. It’s been around since 1995, and millions of people in the United States and around the world have been very satisfied with their purchase. City slickers, off-roading enthusiasts and people who run their businesses all get a lot out of the Toyota Tacoma, and here are five reasons to purchase one.
Long-Lasting: If you want a truck that will stand the test of time, a Toyota Tacoma is the right choice. You don’t have to look at statistics or surveys to know this. When out and about, it’s pretty obvious that there are tons of Toyota Tacomas out on the road, back to 1995, when they made their debut. If you want longevity, with little maintenance, you’d be hard pressed to beat the Tacoma.
Resale Value: While all vehicles lose value, over the long haul, you will feel the pinch less with a Tacoma. If you buy a new or slightly used Toyota Tacoma and put 100,000 or even 150,000 miles or more on it, you will still be able to sell it for a pretty penny. Or, if you want, you will also do well using your Tacoma as a trade-in. By going with a Toyota Tacoma instead of another model, you will pay off your vehicle and enjoy many more years of a reliable truck.
Reliable: Speaking of reliability, if you buy a truck, you need it to work and not let you down. Whether you use your Toyota Tacoma to go off-roading, work or even haul your toys on your weekend diversions, the Tacoma will rarely let you down. Aside from routine maintenance such as oil changes, tire and battery replacements, there isn’t a whole lot you will need to do if you buy a Tacoma.
Customizable: One fun thing about trucks is that they are very easy to customize. Whether you want to add performance, take your truck off-road or make it look cool, there are plenty of options. Since Toyota is a well-known name, a Tacoma owner will have no issue finding aftermarket parts, and someone to install them. Also, due to its popularity, the Tacoma has many forums and like-minded individuals to share ideas and tips with.
Towing: While many use their Toyota Tacomas more lightly, let’s not forget that the Tacoma can also tow. Even with the 2.7-liter engine, one can tow up to 3,500 pounds. If you want more towing power, the V-6 can tow up to 6,800 pounds. This is enough to haul a couple of jet skis or a boat or ATVs. There are also plenty of accessories to help you tow, such as a heavy-duty transmission cooler, which improves your Tacoma’s durability.
