The 2019 Toyota Tacoma wins KKB's '5-Year Cost to Own' title for midsize trucks!

At Michael Toyota of Fresno, the most popular new Toyota we have in stock is the Toyota Tacoma! This midsize truck offers the best of both worlds. You'll get performance and a useful truck bed, as well as the smaller size that is easier to maneuver in cities or tight parking lots. If you're in the market for a Tacoma, you'll be happy to know that back in February the 2019 Toyota Tacoma was named the best midsize pickup on Kelley Blue Books 5-Year Cost to Own list!

What is the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own award?

When shopping for a vehicle, it's easy and tempting to only focus on the sticker price and forget about the other costs that go into owning a certain model. Our friends over at Kelley Blue Book take care of those costs approximations and they review several areas:

  • What is the cost to insure a model?
  • How much it costs to fuel up?
  • How much are applicable state fees?
  • If the model needs maintenance and repairs, what do those prices add up to, on average?
  • What is the deprecation factor?

Using their tools, they're able to project a vehicle's 5-year ownership cost, and that's especially important for shoppers who are on a tight budget. We're so happy that our popular Tacoma earned this fiscally-savvy title! It's also worth noting that the Toyota Prius c and the Toyota Tundra both earned awards for their segments, too.

A few fun facts about the Tacoma

  • The Tacoma comes in 6 trims, and at our dealership the SR5 V6, TRD Off Road V6, and TRD Sport V6 are our most popular ones
  • Except for the top two trims, the Tacoma comes in either Access or Double Cab styles
  • Toyota Safety Sense™ advanced safety technologies come standard across the Tacoma lineup
