Been looking at the specs on mpg and wanted some owner input. Looking at the V6 Tacoma 4x4 access cab real life mpg averages. Thanks for any info.

I get 17-20 country mpg on my 2009 V6 access cab. Only drawback of the access cab is the size. Anyone over 5'5" is going to be highly uncomfortable sitting back there.

I have an older Tacoma v6 and get around 18 hwy. Quite frankly Toyota is behind the curve on Tacoma MPG.I hope when the upgrade next yr this will change.

I work on them every day and customers tell me 18-20mpg is the norm. No one wants to hear this as its cheaper, but using 87 octane will result in the poorest mpg....spending an extra 10-15 cents a gallon will get much better proformance and fuel mileage...so it works out about the same in cost to run the higher octane as the cheaper fuel. Nice truck MQ1 !

I am getting 14+ in my Tundra. Would be impressed if it could get a few more.

I have a 2010 Ford STX extended cab with the 4.6 3valve V8.

I average 17-18 in all around driving. I get 20-21 on an all highway trip at 70 mph.

It cost me about $25000 which is in the ballpark of a tacoma if not cheaper, and is a bigger vehicle capable of towing more, apparently gets better gas mileage, will be cheaper to repair, and it was essentially loaded.

Why would you buy a Tacoma? You can get more out of any of the 3 american full size trucks.

Yep, its 4x4.

They went to the 5.0 motor last year. It has more horsepower but I think the ratings are the same for mpg. Although I don't have experience with it.

The big trucks from the big 3 american makers are heavily discounted at the end of the year. I think Chevy went to the same extended cab set up as Dodge where you have a regular door which is a huge plus after having suicides on mine.

Mine has the 4.6 3 valve. Gets 292 horse, have power windows and locks, cd, rear split, towing package, 18" alloys, fogs, cruise, and air. Plus it has a rubber floor which I really like, better than carpet.

My brother has a crew cab taco that is an '11. He does all his driving around town and I think he said he gets around 16 or 17. He said if he's lucky he'll get 21 on the highway, but that might be his driving style. However he is happy with his mileage compared to the 9 or 10 he was getting before. His main gripe is that he should have bought a full size four door since its small for a family of five and he only saved around 3-4 grand. I think his was 28k after trades.

Traded my '12 TRD Tacoma for a new 5.0 super crew. I'm avg 17 mpg now actually better than my Tacoma this time of year. Summer I did 18 -19 with it. The ABS in the taco is downright scary in the snow. Nice trucks, but long overdue for an update.

If OP wants a mid-size aren't the Taco and Frontier the only two currently made options?

I have a 2012 reg cab 4cyl so im not much help....but i love it
