I am looking into to buying a 2011 Tacoma Pre Runner V6 Access Cab. The steering wheel D-pad controls are no longer linked to the Entune system for the purposes of browsing and selecting contacts. It looks like the lightest weight slide in hard shell non pop up I can find so far is about 1050 lbs.
Overall, ride and handling are a little disappointing in the Tacoma—even among pickups, which typically do trade off some ride comfort and nimbleness for heavy-hauling ability. Refinement might be slightly disappointing to some; both engines are louder than we would have hoped. Other accessories include a bed divider, bed net, cargo crossbars, Yakima roof rack, bike rack, running boards, flip-out bed extender, SnugTop Super Sport hard shell, and a rubber bed mat. But especially for those who want an off-road able truck that really looks the part, there's a lot from which to choose. The PreRunner adds a higher-riding suspension, locking rear differential, and other appearance cues. Development began in 1989, following launch of the fifth generation Toyota Pickup in late 1988 and concluded in 1994.
The Tacoma's cargo bed is a composite material, a sheet-molded compound purported to be more durable and, at the same time, 10 percent lighter than steel. No tools, random junk, etc in the truck. The steering is good and communicative, but the ride, on each of the several Tacomas we've sampled, has been hard and choppy—to the point that on pockmarked city surfaces the tires simply lose contact with the road. Mechanical changes included a switch to distributorless ignitions coil-on-plug in 1996 and in 1997 longer rear leaf springs. Don't forget that payload includes passengers too.
This is important because I am looking to tow a camper. Four-wheel drive and PreRunner Tacomas had six-stud wheel lug patterns and were available with the 2. The tie down cleats are rated to hold up to 220 lb 100 kg. Toyota notes that this is a one-off concept as there are no plans to offer it as a package or level trim. Inside, entry Tacomas can look a little drab inside, though the top trim levels have an interior that uses more matte-metallic panels and upgraded upholstery that has more in common with the Camry and Avalon sedans.
It came with 16-inch 410 mm alloy wheels, and a 5-speed with Tokico gas shocks. The 2005-08 model years came with a mechanical limited slip locking differential. This new Tacoma was available in eighteen different configurations, that included three cab configurations, four transmissions, two engines, and two bed lengths. When installed by a professional dealer, it would not void any warranties on a vehicle. Black leather with red accents and stitching is the only available interior option. There's not a whole lot to say about the Tacoma's styling; it's a traditional compact truck design, with a little added flair on the outside, paired with the chunky, down-to-business look that nearly all Toyota trucks have had in recent years.
Tongue weight is basically 10% of what ever the total weight of the trailer and the cargo you load in it. Toyota will either repair the frame or buyback the truck for 1.

In 2008 for the 2009 model year facelift, Radiant Red was replaced with Barcelona Red Metallic. True compact trucks are almost extinct in the U. Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. In October 2000, along with the front facelift, Toyota had also unveiled an S-Runner trim package which included the 3. The second level includes the above and also adds a towing package oil and transmission coolers, fan clutch , and heavy-duty high output alternator and battery. The interior of the pickup gets a complete overhaul as well. I literally stumbled on this vehicle at the Bremerton Toyota Scion dealership.
Many customers were upset with small crew cab beds, but most competitors shared this shortcoming. Based on the J2807 tow guidelines the Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 lb 3,100 kg with the added tow package. Overall, ride and handling are a little disappointing in the Tacoma—even among pickups, which typically do trade off some ride comfort and nimbleness for heavy-hauling ability. New character lines were also observed on the truck as well as an air dam in front of the vehicle — these new features will likely assist in added fuel economy. The crew cab, officially dubbed as the Double Cab model, featured four doors and Tokico gas shocks, while the extended cabs still opened with two doors and used Bilstein shocks. This was later extended to include 2001-2004 model years, but in these cases when a frame was found to be rusty to the point of perforation, the frame is replaced with a new one instead of a buy back.
