2016 Toyota Tacoma
Base price: $24,200
The tried-and-true Tacoma is a mainstay of the mid-size truck world, with an amazing 29 different versions to meet the demanding needs of equally demanding drivers. A 159-hp 2.7-liter four-cylinder is standard; a 278-hp 3.5-liter V-6 is optional. Both manual and automatic transmissions are available as are rear-wheel and four-wheel drive. The rough-and-tumble TRD Off-Road adds a dual-range transfer case, raised suspension, and an extra dose of visual machismo.
