2007 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 159-horsepower 2.7L I4
5-speed 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. see full Toyota Tacoma review
2007 2dr Regular Cab 6ft bed 159-horsepower 2.7L I4

Fuel economy was close to the best for the class. I get around 27/mpg at highway speeds. see full Toyota Tacoma review

At the time of purchase, it had the best gas mileage of all the small trucks I looked at. (Ford, Chevy, Mazda, GMC) see full Toyota Tacoma review

5-speed 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. see full Toyota Tacoma review

23 mpg on the highway at 55 mph. This is vs. the 1993 toyata truck which regularly got 30+ mpg. see full Toyota Tacoma review

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. see full Toyota Tacoma review
