Japanese automaker Toyota offered the Tacoma pickup truck line across three generations dating back to 1995.  The first-generation Tacoma (spanning model years 1995 through 2004) was a compact pickup.  The name “Tacoma” was derived from the Coast Salish peoples’ name for Mount Rainier in Washington State.  Toyota introduced the Tacoma in the US in February 1995 as a replacement for the Hilux, which prior to this, was marketed in the US under the name Toyota Pickup. Compared with the Hilux, the Tacoma is engineered with a greater priority on ride quality, handling, comfort, and safety over ruggedness and payload capacity. The design is intended to better suit the needs of the US and Canadian markets, where pickup trucks are often used as personal vehicles and less exclusively for commercial, agricultural, and off-road use.

In addition to two four-cylinder engines, Toyota offered a 3.4 L V6 rated at 190 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. Four-wheel-drive Tacomas featured six-stud wheel-lug patterns and were available with the 2.7-L and 3.4-L engines. All Double Cab models were only available with automatic transmission for the first generation.  The truck’s frame is fully boxed until immediately after the rear leaf spring mount bracket, where it transitions into a c-frame section. The TRD Off-Road package was introduced in 1998. This package added a locking rear differential and was only available to four-wheel drive models equipped with a V6.

Here is the seller’s description of their 2001 Toyota Tacoma in their own words:

“This is a very nice truck we have owned since we purchased used in 2001 with only 7,000 miles. It served as my wife’s commuter truck for 20 years. Nice topper on the back. Line-X bed since new. Great runner and has a nice interior. Just my wife and I drove the truck all these years. Interior is remarkable for its age.”

      Ronald, the seller confirmed the timing belt was last changed at approximately 91K miles. The Lemon Squad inspector noted the air conditioning’s performance in the report now posted above.
