There are midsize trucks, and then there's the Toyota Tacoma. With over two decades in the game and over a decade in the midsize segment, we have five reasons the 2017 Toyota Tacoma has everything any truck buyer could want and more.

Powerful Engines

Toyota gives you a choice of a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder with 159 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V6. Either choice is a winner, but it really depends on what you're looking for. The 4-cylinder engine can be paired with a manual transmission, but the V6 power is hard to beat. It's rated at 278 horsepower with 268 lb-ft of torque and delivers some smooth power. Of course, if you tow a lot, you'll especially want to consider the V6.

Toyota Safety

Not that it was ever lacking in any way, but Toyota has really taken their safety to a new level. The Star Safety System is standard and has an array of safety features. There's available blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. You can even get rear parking-assist sonar, which can be very helpful in a pickup truck.

Off-Road Technology

Toyota offers some smart technology in the Tacoma as well. The available Multi-Terrain Select offers five modes to assist in regulating the wheel spin and adjusting traction control. There is the Hill-start Assist Control, which does just that, helping you up steep hills safely. And there's the optional CRAWL control, an advanced system that helps get you across rough terrain. That's a ton of useful off-road technology.

Built to Last

Aside from it being a Toyota, one of the most reliable brands out there, the Tacoma is definitely built to last. Every Tacoma made is of high-strength steel, which is lighter and stronger than conventional steel. Of course, the TRD Off-Road trim level is made specifically for those who love off-roading. But regardless of the trim level, the Tacoma is made to take on some serious abuse.

Impressive Features

Trucks these days come with some cool features, and the Tacoma is right there at the top. The standard list includes a rearview camera, a tailgate locking handle for added security, power-sliding rear window and 16-inch wheels. The Tacoma also has an available Tow package that has Trailer-Sway Control, among other features.

Autotrader Says

How about a reliable truck that's priced right with smart technology? It may be time for you to step away from the Chevrolet Colorado and Nissan Frontier and get behind the wheel of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma.
