What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Toyota Tacoma MPG

Toyota Tacoma Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2011 4dr Crew Cab 6ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic RWD Just completed a 7,000 mile trip, 2 adults & lightly, fully loaded bed. Best mileage 24 mpg, lowest 22 mpg. Typical town/freeway mix has been 22-23 mpg. Flat terrain, easy driving.
2009 4dr Crew Cab 6ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic RWD Even with the V6, the fuel economy hovers around 22MPG with mixed city/highway driving. A lot cheaper to refuel than a full size.
2008 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range I thought the fuel economy, for a truck, was excellent. It gets 5mpg better than a Honda Ridgeline.
2007 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 159-hp 2.7L I4 5-sp manual RWD The 4 cyl specifically for a truck is great. According to my computerized Scanguage I am getting a consistent 21-25 mpg per tank with all around driving and commuting. 21 gallong tank.
2007 2dr Regular Cab 6ft bed 159-hp 2.7L I4 5-sp manual RWD Fuel economy was close to the best for the class. I get around 27/mpg at highway speeds.
2006 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic RWD At the time of purchase, it had the best gas mileage of all the small trucks I looked at. (Ford, Chevy, Mazda, GMC)
2005 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range I get 21mpg in the warm months and only 18mpg in the winter. I use the 4wd a lot when roads are snowy or slippery. I had hoped for better gas mileage and find it ridiculous that there aren't better truck engines available from any of the manufacturers. A turbo-diesel four-cylinder would be much more practical in the Tacoma.
Toyota Tacoma Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2010 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range less than 20 mpg
2008 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 6-sp manual 4WD, part-time w/low range The one I test drove was a 4 wheel drive with a V6 and its gas mileage was worse than my 4 cylinder 2WD.
2007 2dr Regular Cab 6ft bed 159-hp 2.7L I4 4-sp automatic RWD 23 mpg on the highway at 55 mph. This is vs. the 1993 toyata truck which regularly got 30+ mpg.
2007 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range Its terrible.
2007 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 6-sp manual 4WD, part-time w/low range close to 16-17 in town, which is on par with a fullsize v8
2005 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range I expected better fuel economy for a small truck. But none of the trucks get good economy. The manufacturers need to get with the program on truck fuel economy.
