Based on 11 reviews
For 1997, the Toyota Tacoma got a new grille and headlights on the 2WD. Also, the base engine saw a few improvements, and new option packages were offered for all models.
The 1997 Toyota Tacoma was available in three trim levels: the Regular Cab, the Xtracab, and the SR5 Xtracab. The Regular and the Xtracab were available in 4WD, and the SR5 came standard with it. The base engine was a 2.4-liter, 142-horsepower four cylinder; and a 2.7-liter, 150-horsepower four-cylinder; or a 190-horsepower V6 was also available. Fuel economy varied depending on the engine and cab, and ranged from about 17/19 to 22/28.
Drivers like the 1997 Toyota Tacoma because of its compact size and relatively good gas mileage. They also like its reliability. Some drivers complain that the ride can be a little bumpy, and the 2WD does not handle well in the snow.
