Redesigned in 2005, the compact Tacoma pickup continues for 2008 with no changes but with a very slight rise in price.

For 2007, the mid-size Toyota truck received minor tweaks including redesigned seats, a two-toned gauge panel, and chrome trim, along with an off switch for its stability control.

As before, the standard engine in the 2008 Tacoma is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 159 horsepower. The optional 4.0-liter V-6 comes in at 236 horsepower. The base tires are 15-inchers, while 16-inchers are available on PreRunner and 4WD models.

Anti-lock brakes are standard, as are variable wipers, a composite pickup bed, an AM/FM/CD player and a tilt/telescope wheel. Tire pressure monitors, curtain airbags and stability control are among the included safety gear on all models.

The Tacoma's price ranges from $14,280 for the 2WD four-cylinder with a manual transmission to $26,115 for the Double Cab 4WD V-6 automatic long bed.
