Toyota Tacoma Model Years To Avoid

The Toyota Tacoma History

The Toyota Tacoma has a long history dating back to 1995, but we’ll give you the abridged version. The Tacoma was introduced to the US market in February 1995 as a more luxurious version of the Toyota Hilux.

The second generation was introduced in 2005, while the third generation only arrived in 2016. It was short-lived, and a replacement has arrived for 2024.

That means the Taco has been around for 29 model years, and they all have a few things in common. Toyota Tacoma models have always been sold as workhorses and family trucks. Owners have always had the option of choosing between rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive and a manual or automatic transmission. A V6 has always been at the core of all model years as it’s one of the most reliable engines ever made, but less powerful naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines were also available.

The fourth generation is the first to break away from the naturally aspirated V6 in favor of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Because of the new hybrid powertrain, the Tacoma is now more powerful than ever before, but the 2024 model hasn’t been around long enough for us to know whether there are any engine defects.
