Untitled[edit]

This article should be merged or at least cleaned up in respect to the seemingly duplicate Hilux page —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.87.70.91 (talk) 23:40, 21 April 2007 (UTC).


THis article needs a major overhaul. I hurt my head reading it. i tried to fix some of it, but it needs to be re-done from scratch by someone who knows this truck better then I. Actually, after reviewing the above person's comment, i agree, it should be merged. And so it was done :)

and what's with the huge list of dimensions? --MacMan2626 08:38, 13 May 2007 (UTC)


I looked for bed length but did not find it.

Distributorless ignition[edit]

Toyota started putting these into the Tacoma in '98. This is the second time I've corrected it on this page, and someone keeps putting it back. My first Tacoma, which was a '98, used a distributorless ignition. It came from the factory that way. Primium mobile 01:28, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

EDIT: Okay, I was mistaken. DIS was standard beginning in '97, not '98. In any case, it was definitely not 2000. -- Primium mobile (talk) 18:14, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, 1995.5 Tacoma has DIS —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.234.167.242 (talk) 21:14, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


The picture of the Red Truck in the First Generation sidebar is not a Tacoma. It is the previous model year.

HalfPint 12 12 Edit[edit]

You may own a Toyota Truck with a model year prior to '95, but it is not a Tacoma. It may look very similar to a Tacoma, but that's not what it is. Look here: http://www.edmunds.com/toyota/tacoma/history.html Primium mobile (talk) 01:56, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Redesign[edit]

Toyota states that a redesign will be coming in 2012 along with the FJ Cruiser, two years after the 4Runner. Found a few "Car and Driver" sources but other agreeable sources to this would be great. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.54.237.68 (talk) 07:52, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Supercharger Output[edit]

The supercharger output figures in the article are highly questionable. Toyota says the supercharger takes the output of the 4.0L to 304 BHP, 334 foot-pounds: http://pressroom.toyota.com/pr/tms/toyota/TYT2007102634761.aspx 22:06, 7 September 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.52.20.2 (talk)

Fee free to edit the article. Include your reference.  Stepho  (talk) 22:35, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
The article was vandalized a couple weeks ago and nobody caught it. I reverted it, and it turns out that paragraph was actually plagiarized from the above reference, so I had to rewrite it (it was in the wrong tense and not very encylcopedic anyway). --Sable232 (talk) 00:23, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
Good pickup.  Stepho  (talk) 01:23, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Delete 'Aftermarket' section[edit]

I would like to delete the entire 'Aftermarket' section. Otherwise we will have to list everything from springs and differentials to fluffy dice. Every car can use aftermarket parts (some specific to a particular model, some generic), so why is the Tacoma special?  Stepho  talk  04:20, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Truck Timeline Changes[edit]

1st: excellent work on your "non-hilux" pickup page.


2nd: your truck timeline at the bottom needs to be modified.


  • pre 2005 Tacomas and earlier "pick-ups" should have the "Light Pickup" line heading (or mini-pickup).
  • t100's and 2005+ Tacoma's, should be on the same line, with a line heading of "Mid-size Pickup". (as stated in the opening paragraph "The Tacoma was a compact pickup until a model redesign in 2005 when it was reclassified to a mid-size."
  • both tundra generations should be on their own line, title "Full-size Pickup".


thanks and feel free to ask me more here, or at toyotanation.

Made in Mexico[edit]

Post 2009 tacos are made in Mexico. Source: I have one that says made in Mexico. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.173.221.210 (talk) 08:36, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

We need Verifiable sources in order to be in Wikipedia. Cantaloupe2 (talk) 12:27, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

The following is incorrect :"The 2016 and 2017 model year double cab-short bed Tacomas are currently made in Tijuana (VINs starting in 3) and all other Tacoma configurations are made in San Antonio (VINs starting in 5)." I have a 2017 made in US DCSB (VIN-5). I believe the source of this info was misinterpreted... i.e. All Tacomas made in MX are DCSB; but not all DCSB are made in MX. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:2C7:200:5E10:79B3:C2F3:E47F:1FE7 (talk) 21:12, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

1998-1999 Color missing[edit]

Mystic Purple Mica (938) is not in the list of colors, it is a dark purple and was avail in 98 and 99 only. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.33.145.251 (talk) 13:14, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Third gen or just a really big facelift ?[edit]

Is the 2016 model year really a new generation? Toyota has been known in the past to splash "ALL NEW!!!" over facelifts. Editors then list that vehicle in WP as a new generation, only to find out a few months later that it was really just a facelift. The only way to really know is to see the model code. If it is in range N10 to N29 then it is part of the second generation. If it is N30 or higher then it is a new generation. - Stepho, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

TacomaFan1992@, you keep deleting my clarification request. Is this or is this not a new generation? What proof do you have? So far you have given references that say it is the 2016 model year (which proves nothing) and that it is "all new" (which Toyota has often used on facelifts). Delting the clarifiation request is not dealing with it. If you can't offer any proof that it is a new generation then I will have to delete the entire section as unsubstantiated and replace it with a paragraph in the send gen section.  Stepho  talk  23:33, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

As per Toyota Canada internal documents, the 2016 model year Tacoma upcoming, is a Mid-Model Change, not a new generation. - Jeff L., 19 May 2015

model year vs calenadr year[edit]

TacomaFan1992@, you changed "This package was introduced in 2000 at the same time as the release of the newly redesigned Tundra" to "This package was introduced in 2005 for the Tacoma at the same time as the release of the newly redesigned Tacoma". I'll assume you are correct to change Tacoma to Tundra. What I don't understand is whether 2005 means the model year (ie Aug 2004 to Aug 2005) or the calendar year. My understanding is that Americans say "in 2005" to mean calendar years and "for 2005" to mean model years. You said "in 2005" but the generation changeover / redesign was in the calendar year 2004. Have I misunderstood something?  Stepho  talk  05:17, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
