The second-generation Tacoma, which was unveiled in 2005, was available as a 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive regular cab, access cab, double cab long bed and TRD, 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive extended cab, X-Runner and X-Runner extended cab.
An interesting fact is that U.S. Army Special Forces was observed using multiple Toyota Tacomas during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in 1991.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is available only in the extended and crew cab configurations. A 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine is available to power the vehicle. However, the original 4.0-liter V6 has been replaced with a smoother, more fuel efficient V6. The engine stems from the 3.5-liter V6 used to power other Toyota cars. The new engine has 42 more horses than the previous V6. A 6-speed automatic transmission is available to mate with these engines.
