The 2013 Toyota Tacoma doesn't only have looks, but you can easily transition from work to play in style and comfort with this pickup. The double cab with a four-cylinder 2.7-liter engine and automatic transmission comes with four doors to accommodate a family. But, there are other versions of the Tacoma, including the six-cylinder 4-liter X-Runner model with a six-speed manual transmission, which produces 236 horsepower and has a towing capacity of 3,300 pounds.
Some models of the Tacoma come with SofTex seat material, which feels like leather but weighs a lot less and more importantly is easy to clean. Other interior upgrades include heated seats and an in-mirror backup camera. Six air bags, active headrests and the standard Star Safety System, which includes vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, brake assist and Smart Stop Technology, will give you peace of mind when you are hauling loved ones instead of materials.
