The current generation of Toyota Tacoma trucks was introduced for the 2005 model year--a short enough time to tell us we won't see any huge changes this year. For 2007, Toyota has tweaked the Tacoma's design and continues to offer the truck in plenty of configurations.

Look for slightly larger seats in the 2007 Tacoma and a new two-tone instrument panel. You'll also see newly redesigned audio head units and chrome trim around the instrument cluster.

There's now a manual disengage on the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) in trucks configured with that system.

Three Tacoma Cab Styles

  • Regular Cab
  • Access Cab (others call it an Extended Cab)
  • Double Cab (others call it a Crew Cab)

Regular and Access Cab Tacomas have a 73.5" bed. You can get the Double Cab with the same length bed or choose a shorter, 60.3" version.

Regular and Access Cabs are available in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, with 4-cylinder and V6 engines. Tacoma PreRunner Tacomas have a 4x2 drivetrain, but the raised styling of a 4x4.

The X-Runner Tacoma is a sportier version of the Access Cab, with a V6 engine and 4x2 configuration. Read more about the 2007 Tacoma X-Runner.

Double Cab Tacoma trucks all have V6 engines and are available as 4x4s or in the 4x2 PreRunner configuration.
