1999 Toyota Tacoma

The 1999 Toyota Tacoma stayed largely unchanged for the model year, with the exception of some new option packages and color choices.

The 1999 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 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 like the 1999 Toyota Tacoma because of its compact size, Toyota reliability, and excellent off-road capability. The PreRunner, which is higher off the ground than the other 2WDs, is especially popular. Some drivers also complain that the ride can be bumpy and that the extended cab seating is very cramped.
