2014 Toyota Tacoma

New for 2014

For the 2014 Toyota Tacoma, the X-Runner is no longer available, but the SR package has been added (for the PreRunner, Double and Access Cab 4x4 models). The 2014 Tacoma SR gets a color-keyed exterior appearance upgrade, smoked headlight lenses, and 16-inch Baja-style wheels.

Vehicle Overview

The Toyota Tacoma is the automaker’s compact/midsize pickup truck, which fits below the Tundra in the lineup. The Tacoma is offered with the option of three different cabs, four transmissions, two engines, and two bed lengths, making it a versatile smaller truck for a wide range of buyers.


The 2014 Toyota Tacoma comes with a 2.7-liter I-4 that makes 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, and gets an EPA-estimated 18-21/20-25 mpg city/highway. It can be paired to a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual, which is available in rear- or four-wheel drive. The optional 4.0-liter V-6 makes 236 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque for and EPA-estimated 15-17/19-21, gets a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, and can also be had in RWD or 4WD.
The 2014 Tacoma with the V-6 have the option of a fully warranted dealer-installed supercharger which boosts power to 304 hp and 334 lb-ft of torque. Towing with a properly equipped Access Cab Tacoma is a respectable 6,500 pounds.
The 2014 Toyota Tacoma received a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and in IIHS testing received a rating of good in three categories (the highest available rating is good), but received a rating of marginal in the roof strength category.

What We Think

We had two long-term Tacomas, both the roomy double cab models, with 4WD, automatics, and the 4.0-liter V-6. Both trucks were roomy enough to even put a baby seat in the back, and one point we kept returning to in a 2011 review was value: “Despite the appeal of these smaller trucks, it looks like they're all destined for extinction. The problem is that, shy of improved maneuverability, they don't offer much of a benefit over full-size pickups. For about the same money as this $32,772 [2011] Tacoma, you could pick up a four-wheel-drive, crew-cab Tundra with a 4.6-liter V-8. What about fuel economy? That Tundra is rated at 15/20 mpg city/highway, compared with the Tacoma’s 16/20 mpg, and offers better hauling capability and more interior space. Choosing the bigger truck isn’t just about image – it’s the rational choice.”
