The Toyota Tacoma is a crowd favorite truck. It’s not a full-size pickup truck, but it still gets plenty of attention and respect from all kinds of truck owners. The Tacoma is known for having lots of off-road capability, some unique technology options, and a quality interior.
Most of the Toyota Tacoma models you would find on used car dealership lots are going to be about three years old at most. That means most of the Tacoma models will be from the third generation of the Tacoma, which started back in 2016. Models from this generation still feature a prominent grille, high ground clearance, and a strong character line that emphasizes the wheel wells and the bottoms of the doors. The chart below summarizes available features and some of the most important specifications of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma.

The advantage of buying a pre-owned Toyota Tacoma is that you can get higher trim levels for a lot less money. Many just aren’t willing to buy a higher trim level truck on their own when they are brand new, but if someone else already has, you have the chance to find one pre-owned only a couple of years later.
Go for a TRD or TRD PRO trim level pre-owned Toyota Tacoma if you can and get your money’s worth in off-road capability. A pickup truck that is only a couple of years old should last a long time, not to mention having legendary Toyota build quality behind it as well. Just avoid cracked windshields and funny-sounding transmissions and you should be set for a long time.
