No. 8 (Tie): 2009 Toyota Tacoma

Average Price Paid: $9,870 - $20,230 (Details Below)

The Toyota Tacoma won our 2009 Best Compact Truck for the Money award. Marked performance and a top-quality interior, paired with exceptional safety ratings make it a solid choice. While the base four-cylinder is sufficient, test drivers appreciated the optional V6, with a towing capacity of 6,500 pounds.

The 2009 model year brought standard stability and traction control, along with front-seat and side-curtain air bags. The Tacoma seats up to five passengers, depending on the cab configuration. The only recurring complaint was that the front seats sit very low.
