20 Years of the Toyota Tacoma and Beyond: A Look Through the Years

Motor Trend Logo Motor Trend | Slide 1 of 15: Toyota will debut the 2016 Tacoma next week at the 2015 Detroit auto show, but until then, you can catch up on the highlights of this model, from the pickup that debuted back in the '60s to the one currently on showroom floors.

20 Years of the Toyota Tacoma and Beyond

Nearly 60 years ago, Toyota sold its first car in the United States, and although it started as just a small, foreign company, it has grown into one of the biggest brands globally. Toyota is best known for its compact and midsize cars such as the Corolla and Camry, but its truck line is also rich with history. By 1969, Toyota started selling the first generation of the Hilux pickup truck, but it wouldn't be until 1995 that the Tacoma name would be introduced. Over the past 46 years, Toyota has improved upon the design, engine, safety, and more to bring us the Tacoma we have today.
