The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler skips over the on-road part of the driving test, and heads straight for the hills. The 2018 Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup with the right-sized attitude: it’s nimble off road, capable, and just enough truck for many buyers.
