The 2013 Toyota Tacoma has always been one of the most popular compact pickup trucks on the road for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most important thing for truck buys is capability and the Tacoma has that by the truckload (Pardon the pun). But it is also one of the most affordable and fuel efficient small trucks around, making it even more appealing. Recently, the 2013 Tacoma was honored as the top entry in Truck Trend magazine’s Eco-Friendly Haulers: Top 10 Most Fuel-Efficient Pickups list.
The Tacoma is available in a variety of configurations, offering everything from a no-frills work truck to a sporty and comfortable daily driver. Models with the 2.7L four-cylinder engine paired to a five-speed manual transmission and 2WD offer incredible fuel efficiency without sacrificing on functionality. Making use of Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) these models maximize power and efficiency, making 159 hp and 180 lb-ft while easily returning up to an EPA estimated 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg in highway driving. This configuration is not only fuel efficient, but is also available starting at only $18,470, including an $845 delivery fee.
For a light to medium-duty truck, the Tacoma is an excellent choice and is fuel efficient and comfortable enough to be a good commuter vehicle.
