Review continues below

Redesigned last year, the compact Tacoma pickup continues for 2006 with only minor tweaks, which includes a newly standard tire-pressure monitor. Eighteen model configurations are available, based on three cab types: Regular Cab, extended Access Cab with dual rear access doors and tumble flat rear seats, and the four-door Double Cab. The standard powerplant is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that utilizes Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) to produce 164 horsepower and 183 lb-ft of torque; it offers a choice between a five-speed manual and a four-speed automatic transmission. Also available is a 4.0-liter VVT-i V-6 that produces 245 horsepower and 282 lb-ft of torque that can be mated to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic gearbox. Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist are standard, with side-curtain airbags and Vehicle Stability Control optional. An AccessCab configured X-Runner version offers a longer wheelbase, a wider track and lower ride height, and comes powered by the V-6 and six-speed manual. An available Toyota Racing Development supercharger boosts this powerplant's output by about 60 more horses.
