A regular winner of the Best Retained Value award, the Toyota Tacoma has now won an incredible eleven years in a row. With the reputation of being virtually indestructible, it is more capable-off-roading than virtually any other vehicle in its class. While it is still a piece of equipment that can break, you'll likely have to do something extreme to do so. Adding to its durability, the cargo box is composite, rather than steel so even it doesn't suffer the usual scrapes and dents which befall pickups. With all types of configurations and engines, there is a size for most small truck buyers. It is also one of very few trucks on the market to offer a fuel efficient four-cylinder. Discuss the Tacoma with any owners and they generally gush with pride from owning one. Finding a used Tacoma is very difficult and while you can't really consider a vehicle "investment grade", if there was truck to pin the expression to, it might be the Toyota Tacoma.
