For 2014, Toyota has reconfigured the Tacoma's options and trim levels, and it has announced pricing for the compact pickup truck.
Gone is the X-Runner sport truck trim, but a new SR Appearance Package arrives to liven things up. It's available on the Tacoma PreRunner and 4x4 Access Cab models and adds body-colored fenders, door handles, bumpers, grille surround and side mirrors, as well as smoked headlights (V-6 models also add fog lights).
The company's Entune audio system also gets upgraded this year. Toyota has switched the backup camera display from the rearview mirror to the Entune screen for trucks that include this feature. Two new colors are also introduced, Silver Sky Metallic and Blue Ribbon Metallic.
The cheapest Tacoma will be the four-cylinder regular cab 4x2 with a five-speed manual transmission, starting at $18,735, including an $860 destination fee. The top trim is the double cab 4x4 V-6 long bed, featuring a five-speed automatic transmission, for $29,145. Overall price increases for the 2014 model year range from $50 on the PreRunner models up to $250 on the regular cab base models.
