The Toyota Tacoma has earned a trophy every single year dating back to our first Best Resale Value Awards. That streak continues for 2018, where the Tacoma is not only the top midsize pickup, but it returns as the overall Best Resale Value Award winner for the fourth year in a row.
The Tacoma has a lot to offer truck buyers. Easier to park on the street or in a garage than a full-size truck, but with excellent capability, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma can serve as a tough, reliable work truck that can be configured in more than 30 ways. The Tacoma comes with a choice of a 4-cylinder engine or a powerful, efficient V6. The Tacoma is also offered in six trim levels, with two cab sizes, two transmissions, two bed lengths and an extensive suite of safety equipment.
Toyota's midsize pickup can also prove its mettle off-road. If your adventures take you further down the trail, an available two-speed transfer case, Crawl Control, and Multi-terrain Select can make the trip a lot more fun. You can also use the truck to carry an ATV or dirt bikes in the bed.
Not only is the truck versatile, capable and easy to build for your specific needs, but it provides a comfortable ride on the highway and is an agreeable daily driver. In our Toyota Tacoma Expert Review, we note that "The V6 and 6-speed manual combination is rewarding to drive. Seating is comfortable and overall visibility is excellent," and "the Tacoma also rides well, with less chop than you might expect from a small pickup."
