Though by name the Tacoma was first sold in 1995 with the introduction of a made-in-America model, Toyota actually started selling pickups in the US in 1964.
ANCHORAGE, AK-There are Car People. And, there are Truck People, and never should the two come to an agreement when it comes to the things that make vehicles worth talking about. It's a divide between those who appreciate the ride and those who want to take that ride down a ditch - with some cargo in back.
Consider the divide conquered. After a day spent behind the wheel of the all-new Toyota Tacoma, it's clear that the traditional choice between car comfort and pickup practicality is really no longer a choice at all: The eighth-generation of Toyota's original compact pickup delivers both, and may well be the easiest pickup to live with in recent memory.
