Model News

For 2011, the compact Toyota Tacoma pickup gets new TX and TX Pro packages, which add a combination of official Toyota Racing Development (TRD) off-road and appearance accessories to the Tacoma's Off-Road Package. All Tacoma models get a slightly new look to the grille, and air conditioning is now standard on all models. Also, Toyota has cut several unpopular models out of the line and added five 4-cylinder models, including PreRunner and 4x4 models, as well as Access Cab and Double Cab styles.


Model Highlights

Two different engines are available on the 2011 Toyota Tacoma line: a 159-horsepower, 2.7L 4-cylinder and a 236-hp, 4.0L V6. Both engines have variable valve timing to help provide both strong low-end torque as well as higher-rev passing power. A 6-speed manual transmission is available with the V6 as is a 5-speed manual, which comes with the 4-cylinder. For automatic transmissions, a 5-speed can be optioned with the V6 and a 5-speed is available with the 4-cylinder models.

Just as most other pickup models, the Tacoma is available in several different configurations so as to suit a wide range of uses. Regular Cab models come with two doors, with the Access Cab including a small backseat as well as rear doors that open 80 degrees for easy access; 4-door Double Cab models include 60/40-split rear seats that are comfortable enough for adults. Access Cab models also have fold-up rear seats, but add under-seat storage. All Tacoma models now come with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, brake assist and an automatic limited-slip differential. With the available Off-Road Package, there's also Hill-start Assist Control and Downhill Assist Control, which help keep traction on steep slippery slopes or moderate speed and traction on steep downhills. Seat-mounted side airbags, roll-sensing side airbags and active front headrests are also included.

The Toyota Tacoma X-Runner model is the highest-performance version of this truck line and carries over with a number of serious performance mods as well as appearance upgrades. The suspension is specially tuned for road performance, while there's a full body kit, hood scoop, and special fog lamps. With the V6, it's claimed to accelerate to 60 mph in less than seven seconds, but there's even more performance potential on tap with an available supercharger kit, bringing output up to 304 hp and 334 lb-feet of torque.

Base Tacoma models are quite simply equipped and don't even include power windows or locks. They do come with air conditioning and a 4-speaker CD sound system. Access Cab and Double Cab models include power windows and locks, while Double Cab models also get a lumbar-adjustable driver's seat.

Options on Access and Double Cab models include upgraded audio, steering-wheel controls, and a backup monitor system.

A Tow Package available on Access Cab V6 models brings tow capacity up to 6,500 pounds. Also available as a dealer-installed option is a TRD Big Brake system, which includes bigger vented rotors, aluminum 4-piston calipers and braided steel lines.

The new TX and TX Pro packages this year give the Tacoma PreRunner and 4x4 models a more aggressive, more off-road-capable look with special accessories and performance enhancements. The TX package brings the menacing look, with BF Goodrich Rugged Trail tires on 16-inch black alloy bead-lock wheels, special tube-side steps, a stainless steel exhaust tip, and exterior graphics, while the TX Pro gets a special cat-back performance exhaust system. Both include what's otherwise offered as the TRD Off-Road Package, with progressive-rate front springs, an electric-locking front differential, Bilstein shocks, a larger stabilizer bar, and fog lamps, plus a 400-watt, 115-volt powerpoint, sport seats and an overhead console.


Value Writeup

There aren't as many compact truck models on the market as there used to be, but Toyota has done a great job keeping the Tacoma competitive, up-to-date and finding recreation and performance appeal. Toyota boasts that it has more model variations than any other truck manufacturer in this class. Also with expanded standard features, such as air conditioning, included even on base models for 2011, the Tacoma is an even better value--especially when considering the model's reputation for reliability and resale value. And for those who don't have to tow much more than a small boat or trailer, the Tacoma might provide all the hauling ability you need yet feel more maneuverable for daily driving.

Potential Number of Units Affected
22,000

Summary
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008 THROUGH 2011 FJ CRUISER, LAND CRUISER, TACOMA, SEQUOIA AND TUNDRA VEHICLES FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 138, "TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)." THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEMS WERE NOT RE-CALIBRATED CORRECTLY AND THEREFORE DO NOT START ILLUMINATING THE LOW TIRE PRESSURE WARNING TELLTALE AT THE REQUIRED MINIMUM ACTIVATION PRESSURE

Consequence
FAILURE TO WARN OF TIRE DEFLATIONS IS A NON-COMPLIANCE WITH FMVSS 138 AND COULD LEAD TO TIRE FAILURE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL RE-INITIALIZE THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Component

Potential Number of Units Affected
20000

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma vehicles equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers prior to the vehicle's first sale. The affected vehicles may list incorrect spare tire size and/or cold tire inflation information on the tire placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."

Consequence
If the spare tire is inflated to the incorrect pressure provided on the placard, tire failure may occur while it is being driven on, increasing the risk of a crash.

For the involved vehicles, overlay stickers to correct the tire placard will either be mailed to owners or provided to dealers for placement over the incorrect information on the placard. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Tacoma Access Cab vehicles manufactured September 14, 2004, through March 29, 2010; and model year 2011 Tacoma Access Cab vehicles manufactured July 1, 2010, through September 7, 2011. If the access doors are repeatedly and forcefully closed, the screws that attach the seat belt pre-tensioner to the seat belt retractor can loosen over time. If the screws loosen completely, the seat belt pre-tensioner and the retractor spring cover could detach from the seat belt retractor.

Consequence
If the seat belt pre-tensioner detaches from the seat belt assembly, the seat belt pre-tensioner will not perform as designed, increasing the risk of injury in a severe crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt assemblies. Based on the inspection, the seat belt assembly will be replaced or new pre-tensioner screws will be installed with thread-locking sealant and a retractor spring cover with stopper ribs to prevent loosening of the screws. These services will be provided at no cost to the owner. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner and 4x4 vehicles manufactured September 14, 2009, to October 11, 2010. In the affected vehicles, one of the leaf springs may fracture due to stress or corrosion. While being driven, the broken leaf could move out of position and contact surrounding components including the fuel tank, possibly puncturing the tank and causing a fuel leak.

Consequence
If the fuel tank leaks fuel from being punctured, there is an increased risk of a fire

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin November 28, 2014. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
