Toyota says 2011 Tacoma to start at $16,365
TORRANCE, Calif. — Toyota Motor Sales USA said Friday that its 2011 model year Tacoma pickup truck will have a suggested starting price of $16,365.
The base manufacturer’s suggested retail price, or MSRP, is for the Regular Cab model, while the Double Cab model comes with an MSRP of $27,525.
The 2011 Tacoma is expected to arrive at dealerships in late July. It is manufactured at Toyota plants in Mexico and San Antonio.
Sales of pickups are on the rise, with Americans buying 151,000 pickups last month, 19 percent more than a year ago. Sales of full-size pickups, especially popular among contractors and builders, grew even faster. Through May, Americans bought 11 percent more than they did in the first five months of last year — a kind of rugged indicator of the nation’s return to financial health.
