1998 Toyota Tacoma

The 1998 Toyota Tacoma saw a number of changes, including the addition of several new trims and the discontinuation of the SR5. New standard equipment was also offered in all models.

The 1998 Toyota Tacoma was available in nine different configurations: the Regular Cab, Xtracab, and Xtracab V6 in 2WD or 4WD, Limited Xtracab 4WD, PreRunner 2WD, and PreRunner V6 2WD. The PreRunners come equipped with 4x4 tires but is a 2WD. The base engine was a 2.4 liter 142 horsepower four cylinder. The 4WDs came standard with a 2.7L 150 horsepower four cylinder. The V6 has 3.4 liters and 190 horsepower. Fuel economy was about 17/20 mpg.

Drivers of the 1998 Toyota Tacoma love it for its off-road capabilities, compact size, and good gas mileage. Owners do complain that the Tacoma doesn’t offer much room in the extended cab, and that the seats are uncomfortable.
