2003 Toyota Tacoma

Most of the changes for the 2003 Toyota Tacoma revolve around safety. The Tacoma got an antilock brake system and the addition of child restraint systems in several models.

The 2003 Toyota Tacoma came in a wide variety of trims, which included the Regular Cab 4WD, Xtracab 4WD, Xtracab V6 4WD, Double Cab V6 4WD, Regular Cab 2WD, PreRunner Regular Cab 2WD, Xtracab 2WD, PreRunner Xtracab 2WD, S-Runner Xtracab V6 2WD, PreRunner, Double Cab 2WD, PreRunner Xtracab V6 2WD, and the PreRunner Double Cab V6 2WD. The new Double Cab models offered four doors instead of two and extra room in the extended cab. The S Runner was the sporty model, offering a sport-tuned suspension. Fuel economy was about 17/20 mpg.

The Toyota Tacoma is popular because it is a small, dependable truck that offers ruggedness and hauling capacity in a smaller package. Some drivers find that the seats can be uncomfortable, and many say that the Xtracab is too small for anyone but children.
