2009 model year changes

Toyota's popular Tacoma pickup sees several small changes but no major ones for 2009. All Tacomas get slightly revised grilles and taillights, new interior front door panels, as well as an upgraded stereo system, with an MP3/CD player and XM satellite radio capability. Tacoma Access Cabs get standard power windows and locks, plus a new rear seat with center console and storage. Access and Double Cab Tacomas add an extra set of speakers as standard, and a backup camera is available. Across the line, standard safety equipment now includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC). A standard limited-slip differential, active front headrests, and roll-sensing curtain and side seat airbags also bolster the Tacoma's safety. New colors include Pyrite, Barcelona Red, Timberland and Magnetic Gray.

Special features for 2009

Competition is tight in the mid-size pickup segment, and Toyota's 2009 Tacoma responds by offering impressive versatility, including the ability to configure a pickup with either on-road or off-road capability in mind. PreRunner versions add a tough 4x4 look and higher ride height to a 4x2 drivetrain, and the X-Runners pair a sport-tuned chassis with the 236-horsepower V6 engine. Additionally, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) Off-Road and Sport packages are available on most V6 models to upgrade either trail or pavement performance. Now with extra standard safety features like Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), a limited-slip differential, active front headrests and roll-sensing curtain and side seat airbags, there is even more to like about the 2009 Tacoma.
