4. Toyota Tacoma
Torque. Horsepower. Payload. Those figures dominate pickup truck ads like a bully on the playground. But if chest beating over maximum capacities isn’t your thing and you still find having a truck useful, consider the Tacoma.
It’s one of the few remaining small pickups on the market, and in many ways it really isn’t all that small.
The long bed is just over 190 inches, which is close to the Tundra’s standard size. More importantly, you probably have a full-size truck if you actually need one. If not, the Tacoma offers a 4.0-liter V6 if you want more power, or a four-cylinder that offers up to 25 highway mpg. With an $18,470 starting price including delivery, it’s affordable too.
