5. Toyota Tacoma
The Toyota Tacoma is is one of the few light trucks still available today and arguably offers the best small truck option. Introduced into the market in 1995, the Tacoma has enjoyed major success with 2.46 million trucks sold up to December, 2011. When you consider that the Tacoma outsold the Dakota by about 10,000 units despite a nine year handicap, you see once again that Japanese light trucks are not to be discredited.
