Toyota's popular Tacoma pickup sees several small changes but no major ones for 2009. All Tacomas get slightly revised grilles and taillights, new interior front door panels, as well as an upgraded stereo system, with an MP3/CD player and XM satellite radio capability. Tacoma Access Cabs get standard power windows and locks, plus a new rear seat with center console and storage. Access and Double Cab Tacomas add an extra set of speakers as standard, and a backup camera is available. Across the line, standard safety equipment now includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC). A standard limited-slip differential, active front headrests, and roll-sensing curtain and side seat airbags also bolster the Tacoma's safety. New colors include Pyrite, Barcelona Red, Timberland and Magnetic Gray.
