Most V-6 versions of the 2011 Toyota Tacoma are pretty thirsty, but this compact truck can be a relatively green choice in four-cylinder form.

Consumer Guide




In four-cylinder form, the Tacoma is pretty good on gas for a pickup, while V-6 Tacomas really aren't much better than a full-size truck. There's a very significant difference between base 2WD four-cylinder models of the Tacoma—returning up to 21 mpg city, 25 highway—and 4WD V-6 models—which get as low as 14/18.

In four-cylinder form, the Tacoma gets better mileage than GM's full-size hybrids—the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid and GMC Sierra Hybrid—but not quite the numbers of the Ford Ranger.

Conclusion

Most V-6 versions of the 2011 Toyota Tacoma are pretty thirsty, but this compact truck can be a relatively green choice in four-cylinder form.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
