3. Review and specs of Toyota Tacoma 2008 in Nigeria

In Nigeria, the Hilux by the same manufacturer gathers more attention in the pickup line; however, Toyota Hilux prices are slightly higher than the Toyota Tacoma's, which is a factor that helps draw more buyers to the later. Also worth to note that this does not mean the Tacoma is an inferior brand as it has seen remarkable improvements over the generations. The second-generation Tacoma was manufactured and assembled in Tijuana, Mexico, and Fremont in California, while the plastic beds were made in Mexico. In August 2009, Toyota, however, moved Tacoma’s production to San Antonio in Texas.

There was a minor facelift from the 2009 model involving a slightly improved grille. They came handy with new LED taillamps, TRD Off-road on the X-Runner and smoked headlamp trim on TRD Sport models. Also, two ceiling speakers and backup monitors were made available and four different exterior colors were added to these. In 2012, styling features were improved in the front bumper, headlights, grille, and hood. Also, nicer interior styling and a shark fish looking antenna made for the satellite radio Sirius XM was added. It was in this same 2009 that Tacoma began to include Toyota’s Star Safety System like Vehicle Stability Control as well as traction control.


The Tacoma is known for its ruggedness

To secure your notion of going for the Tacoma for safety reasons, you should be aware that the car has won an award for its active head restraints in "Top Safety Pick" at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety test. For the 2016 model, an Atkinson cycle 3.5 liter V-6 came with direct and port injection, which boosted the fuel economy; the year after that, the TRD Pro trim level was introduced and it was aimed at off-roaders; tor 2018, an automatic emergency braking was introduced; and in 2019, the TRD Pro edition had Fox shocks that enable the high-speed capability for off-roads.
