The Toyota Tacoma doesn't have too many competitors, but there are a few alternatives with which it competes.
The closest of these is the Nissan Frontier, which we consider a better truck for everyday use and better on-road drivability.
The Honda Ridgeline is the best-driving vehicle in the segment–and it's spacious inside, too–but it's also the least useful as a true truck.
GM has brought its GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Silverado twins back to the market this year, and both offer the added bonus of a diesel engine option.
And, there's always the Ford F-150, if you're willing to step it up a notch.
For 2015, it's redesigned and re-engineered from the ground up.
