We all know that good, old-fashioned pickup trucks get the job done. The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is a solid midsize contender, and although it's not the biggest, we have five reasons why it could be the baddest.

Trim Levels Galore

Toyota certainly made it clear that you can pretty much have this truck however you want it. There are 29 versions of the Tacoma with five different trim levels to choose from. From the fancy TRD Sport trim to a simple work truck, like the SR model, whatever you're looking for in a midsize truck, the Tacoma has abundant selections.

Sharp Styling

The latest Tacoma receives some styling touches from its Toyota family, as the 4Runner and larger sibling Tundra have inspired a more rugged, aggressive look than previous models. Strong character lines and a beefier front grille give the Tacoma a bold, handsome look.

Lean and Mean

Toyota has improved the overall suspension of the Tacoma, as well as a few other revamps. It has now added a special high-strength steel that reduces the weight and increases the rigidness of the truck. What you end up with is a lighter, stronger Tacoma that is most definitely ready to rumble.

Street and Off-Road Chops

There are some trucks that are great off-road but seem less than par on the street. The Tacoma can really tackle whatever pavement or dirt stands in its way. It has 9.4 inches of ground clearance, which makes it ready to take on almost anything. On the street, the Tacoma is fairly quiet and smooth, which complements its sure-footed steering and handling.

Tech Friendly

Toyota designed the Tacoma with current and future technology in mind. It features a blind spot monitoring system, an optional wireless phone charging pad and even a standard GoPro camera mount on the windshield. The Tacoma is made how a truck in this day and age should be.

Autotrader Says

With an updated suspension, impressive technology and Toyota's tried-and-true badge, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma shows that you don't have to go big or go home to have fun.
