Tacoma Exhaust System Tips

Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma isn’t the first compact Toyota truck to be sold in the United States, but it is the most well known and popular of them all. Toyota has been making trucks since 1935, but it wasn’t until 1995 that the Tacoma name was ascribed to its seventh generation pickup truck, corresponding to the automaker shifting the truck’s production from Japan to America.

Today’s Tacoma

The current or eighth generation Tacoma was introduced in 2005 and is sold in two- and four-wheel-drive, is powered by four- and six-cylinder gas engines and is available in three cab and two truck bed configurations. In all, there are 18 variations of the Tacoma truck, which explains why this model regularly outsells the Nissan Frontier, Ford Ranger, Dodge Dakota and Chevrolet Colorado, its chief competitors.

Under the hood, the Toyota Tacoma is powered by a base four cylinder gas engine. The seventh generation model offered a standard 2.4-liter and optional 2.7-liter four cylinder. Both engines were paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission with the base engine equipped with a standard a 5-speed manual transmission. A 3.4-liter V-6 powered top of the line Tacoma trucks and is paired with manual or automatic transmissions.

The 2011 Toyota Tacoma is powered by a 2.7-liter four cylinder engine paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. A 4.0-liter V-6 is optional, paired with a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. The base engine is rated at 159 hp at 5,200 rpm and 180 foot-pounds of torque at 3,800 rpm. The optional engine is rated at 236 hp at 5,200 rpm and 266 foot-pounds of torque at 3,800 rpm. These models have a towing capacity ranging from 3,500 to 6,500 pounds and a payload capacity ranging from 895 to 1,550 pounds.

Tacoma Performance

The Toyota Tacoma is a proven workhorse on- and off-road. Its short wheelbase, tough factory installed components and exceptional low end torque as featured in both engines sets this truck apart from the pack. You can haul all of you favorite “toys” with your Tacoma including jet skis, ATVs, dirt bikes and some smaller boats. By outfitting your Tacoma with a performance aftermarket exhaust system you will increase its performance and enjoy its impressive exhaust note, without sacrificing your truck’s great gas mileage.
