2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner Review

The 2007 Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup truck that comes in the following trim levels: Regular Cab, Access Cab, Double Cab, and X-Runner. The 2007 Regular Cab truck comes standard with a 2.7 liter 4-cylinder engine which develops 159 hp @ 5200 rpm with 180 lb.-ft. torque @3800 rpm. The 2007 Access Cab and Double Cab Pre-Runner are set up with a 2.7 liter 4-cylinder engine or optional 4.0 liter v6 which creates 236 hp @ 5200 rpm, with 266 lb.-ft. @4000 rpm. All models are connected to a standard 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive, with a 6-speed optional on some models.

The bed of the 2007 Tacoma, 6-foot long on most models, has an inner shell of reinforced composite material. The outer panels, compartments, and removable tailgate are all steel. All external grille and details are black plastic. Some models come with black overfenders, skid plates, fog lamps, and mudflaps. The Tacoma has evolved into a tough, durable work truck that looks good no matter how dirty it gets. Standard on most trucks are cloth front fold-forward seats, bulkhead storage, and full carpeting. Optional choices on the 2007 Toyota Tacoma include 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels, variable-slip differential, and Daytime Running Lights.

An advanced front and passenger airbag system is a key component of the safety system on every Tacoma. Along with that, you can expect your Tacoma to have 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, a child restraint system, and power window lock-out. We are impressed that, over the years, the Tacoma has matured into a more road worthy, safe, and durable truck, with improved protection for its passengers.

The fuel efficient 4-cylinder engine powering the Tacoma boasts 23 mpg city, 28 mpg highway. At home on the street or offroad, the 2007 Toyota Tacoma is engineered to handle most off-road driving situations. Safe driving habits are always recommended. The Toyota Tacoma drives nicely and cruises comfortably. Even with its higher stance, it handles well on twists and turns. Sporty models such as the X-Runner can be great fun off-road.
