About the Toyota Tacoma PreRunner

Vehicle Summary

Are you on the hunt for a midsize pickup with the ability to have some fun out on the trail, but you don't necessarily require a 4x4 drivetrain? Check out the Toyota Tacoma PreRunner. This 2WD pickup stands a little taller and features a beefier set of fenders so you can roll over some serious ruts and churn up some mud. The PreRunner is available from 2005 to 2015 and adds larger 16-inch steel wheels, mud flaps, a clutch-start switch, lifted suspension, and an engine immobilizer to the standard truck. Find yours with a cab featuring four doors or the extended Access version and your choice of two bed lengths. The 2015 also included electronic traction and vehicle stability control, ready to take your truck from city streets out to your unpaved weekend road course.

Toyota Tacoma PreRunner Popular Features

The Toyota Tacoma PreRunner is a midsize pickup built between 2005 and 2015 offering rugged appeal for drivers who want to take their rear-wheel drive ride off road, but don't need the added control found on a four-wheel drive machine. The 2015 PreRunner comes equipped with either a 2.7L 159-hp four-cylinder engine or the optional 4.0L V6 churning out 236 hp. A five-speed manual transmission is ready to get you rolling, or look for the optional six-speed manual or automatic transmission. A clutch-start switch is included, allowing you to engage the ignition with a push start and popping the clutch, a functional upgrade when your battery fails while exploring remote trails with your buddies. The lifted suspension adds 4.2 inches in height over the standard Tacoma and gives you an extra 2.4 inches in width. A skid plate protects the transfer case and is also available for the engine compartment. Finally, the 16-inch steel wheels are an inch larger compared to the standard Tacoma. You can find the PreRunner with a four-door Double cab or the more compact Access cab and a five or six-foot bed.

What you find inside the Toyota Tacoma PreRunner depends largely on the package that was selected when the vehicle was sold as new. Standard amenities in the 2015 year model include fabric-trimmed manual seats, a six-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth® technology, and USB ports. There is room for extra storage under the flip-up rear bench. The tilt and telescoping steering wheel help you settle into a more comfortable position for those epic treks. Should you find a PreRunner equipped with the TRD Off Road package, you will also enjoy a 115-volt deck-mounted outlet, cruise control, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls.

Front and rear mudflaps mean you are always ready to get a little dirty. Daytime running lights help you be seen when you and your friends are kicking up the dust. The available Limited package adds premium upholstery, navigation, an app suite, a sliding rear window, and backup camera.1 Maximize your towing capacity up to 6,500 pounds in the 2015 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner with the optional V6 engine and when properly equipped.2
