10. 2013 Toyota Tacoma
The compact truck segment is essentially dead, but Toyota’s Tacoma is one of the stragglers that just won’t quit. In its most basic configuration this working person’s pickup is priced at about $18,470, including destination charges.
Keeping things simple, it’s powered by a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out an unimpressive 159 horsepower with a maximum of 180 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed manual transmission routes all that giddy-up to the truck’s rear wheels, and only the rear wheels; this Taco is 4×2.
It also features a regular cab, something that’s a bit of an endangered species these days; four-door trucks have overrun the market. Similarly no-frills is the interior, which features municipal-grade fabric.
