2016 Toyota TacomaTOY TAC OWNER - Phoenix, AZ07/03/2017
If there was a 'maybe' response, I'd choose it. The ride is tolerable. The TRD Off-Road package (with 4WD) is very capable off-road. Handling is not bad for a truck with an off-road oriented suspension and off-road tires. It is a maneuverable package and fits fairly well in tight spots.
Fuel economy- I'm unable to hit the combined EPA rating. My highway mileage averages about 18-19 MPG driving slow. I don't tow. I usually have about 50 lbs worth of gear in the bed.
Power is not bad. However, it feels like it is all in the higher rev range.
In the 25k miles I've had it, one of the rear brakes leaked. The transfer case leaked. The power steering rack had to be replaced. One of the rear back-up sensors failed and had to be replaced.

Great truck,equipment, surprisingly good mileage for a 4Ltr. I had a Ford Ranger before, but the Tacoma is a real truck, the Ranger, just a training truck.
