One of the great things about the Toyota lineup is that it truly offers a vehicle for everyone. That means that whether you want a pickup for daily drives around Denison or a powerful work truck, you can easily find exactly what you need. In order to figure out whether you should buy the 2015 Toyota Tundra or Tacoma, you simply need to ask yourself a few questions about your budget and requirements in terms of towing, size, and power.
Pricing and Budget
As two Toyota vehicles, both the 2015 Tundra and Tacoma come with the same warranty, offering you savings throughout the first several years of ownership. There is, however, a reasonable difference in starting price for the vehicles, largely due to their size and power. The compact to midsize Tacoma has smaller engine choices when compared to those in the full-size Tundra, and this leads to at least several thousand dollars of savings. The sizing of the Tacoma makes it perfect for those who want to be able to easily park or maneuver their pickup truck, particularly if they don’t need the extra space offered by the Tundra.
If you don’t need a great deal of power and just need to tow about 6,500 or less, then the Toyota Tacoma will be a great choice. This model can also haul 1,500 pounds. If, on the other hand, you need more power or the ability to tow 10,000 pounds, consider a Tundra. Always remember that increases in power and towing ability come with a small sacrifice to fuel efficiency, meaning you will have to stop less frequently to refuel the Tacoma.
