2010 Tacoma TRD OR

2010 Toyota Tacoma ShadowFalken - Frederick, MD 02/16/2010

This truck is exactly what I was looking for. The perfect blend of performance, size, handling and comfort. The only wish for the truck was to be able to get the longer bed with the double cab and off-road package. It is not offered that way. However, after the recent weather, the capability of the truck to handle it is impressive. I have already used it for a trip and found it very comfortable over many hours of driving. It is quiet and solid on the road and handles very well. The controls are well thought out and the ergonomics are comfortable. Visibility is good. Knowing Toyota's commitment and seeing the way they stand behind their products made this a very comfortable purchase for me. I have had no concerns with the truck to this point. Very happy.

2010 Toyota Tacoma Overview

Introduced in 1995 as a compact truck by its Japanese maker, today the Toyota Tacoma is the best-selling truck in its class. Boasting exceptional reliability, and high resale value, the 2010 Toyota Tacoma is ranked #5 in compact pickup trucks by US News and World Reports. In 2005, Motor Trend magazine named the Toyota Tacoma as its Truck of the Year.

2010 Toyota Tacoma History

While the first generation of Toyota Tacoma pickups were sold as compact trucks, the second generation - beginning in 2005 - saw it reclassified as a mid-size. This generation featured either a 2.7L, 159-horsepower engine or a 4.0L, 236-horsepower engine. Four transmissions were released:

  • Four-speed automatic
  • Five-speed manual
  • Five-speed automatic
  • Six-speed manual

A new V6 optional engine brought with it many enhancements, including a 1,650-pound payload capacity and a 6,500-pound towing capacity. An X-Runner trim for the Toyota Tacoma replaced the sluggishly-selling S-Runner trim. It featured the V6 engine paired with 18-inch wheels, an X-Brace suspension package, factory-lowered frame, and a six-speed manual transmission.

How It Drives

The 2010 Toyota Tacoma drives just like one would expect a rugged, stylish, and comfortable truck to drive. While doing city driving, this truck delivers a smooth and comfortable ride with its rear wheel drive. It delivers 14 to 20 mpg while in the city and 18 to 26 mpg on the highway.

Some popular features of the 2010 Toyota Tacoma include:

  • Its ability to hug the road
  • Strong off-road capabilities
  • Wider front and rear tracks
  • Side-curtain and side-impact airbags
  • Substantial towing ability by the V6

Used 2010 Toyota Tacoma Value

Toyota vehicles are well-known for their exceptional resale value, and the 2010 Toyota Tacoma is no exception. Expect to find used Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks between $15,000 and $20,000. Due to their reliability and versatility, the 2010 Toyota Tacoma is considered a great value for consumers who want a comfortable truck that can easily tow a boat or camper for weekend fun.

Design & Performance

When Toyota decided to increase the size of its Tacoma pickup truck from a compact to a midsize, it also bumped up its available engine sizes to match. The previous four-cylinder, 2.4L engine was replaced by a 2.7L four-cylinder. A 4.0L V6 engine replaced the previous 3.4L one. This additional capability also increased the truck's towing capabilities, enabling it to give full-size pickups a run for their money.

Special 2010 Toyota Tacoma models include:

  • X-Runner with its factory-lowered two-wheel drive extended cab, six-speed manual transmission, Bilstein shocks, and 4.0L V6 engine.
  • PreRunner is available in each of the three cab styles and with either a V6 or four-cylinder engine. As a two-wheel-drive truck, it combines the rugged looks of the four-wheel-drive version with the lighter weight and reduced cost of a two-wheel drivetrain.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2010 Toyota Tacoma is available either as a four-cylinder or a V6 engine. The four-cylinder boasts 159 horsepower, is limited to the regular cab, and can be paired with either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. The regular cab, X-Runner, and four-cylinder extended cab offer a tow rating of 3,500 pounds.

The crew cab comes standard with the 4.0L V6 engine that provides 236 horsepower. This larger engine is optional for the extended cab version of the 2010 Toyota Tacoma. When these cab options are equipped with a tow package as well as the V6 engine, they can tow up to 6,500 pounds.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2010 Toyota Tacoma offers ample choices in cab arrangements to meet the needs of nearly all drivers. A regular three-seat cab, extended cab that can seat four, and a five-seat crew cab include comfortable and supportive front seats. Though the crew cab is roomy enough for kids and adults, the extended cab seemed to lack adequate space for most adults to sit comfortably.

Some updated features include:

  • Toyota Star Safety System
  • Available premium audio system with Bluetooth connectivity
  • Anti-whiplash active headrests for front passengers
  • Increased traction and stability control
  • Smoked headlamp trim for some models, including X-Runner, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Sport
