Decked out in TRD Pro guise, just 158 miles, and V6 power.
Since the second-generation model hit the market in 2005, nearly 2.9 million examples of the Toyota Tacoma have been sold in the US. That's an average of around 168,000 units annually. The Tacoma, currently in its third generation, remains so popular that dealers can barely keep them in stock. Even used examples don't last long. Truck buyers know a good truck when they see it and the Tacoma fits the bill perfectly.
Those who desire a particularly special Tacoma that could have very well ended up becoming a part of Toyota's official in-house collection should look no further than this 2019 model. Mecum Auctions is offering the one-millionth Tacoma at its Monterey, California auction taking place from August 12.
With just 158 miles on its odometer, the truck is equipped with the TRD Pro package and finished in Army Green with a black grille and lettering. Like all Tacomas, it was built - on October 4, 2019, to be precise - at the automaker's San Antonio, Texas plant, where the larger Tundra also calls home.
Like all TRD Pro Tacomas, this one is powered by the tried and true naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 that's good for 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque and paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The black leather interior is complemented by red contrast stitching and occupants will benefit from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, dual-zone climate control, and a sunroof.
Additional features include a 4WDenand part-time 4WD system, 16-inch wheels, Rigid Industries fog lights, and a bunch of other TRD Pro-exclusive items like a skid plate and Fox shock absorbers. A letter confirming its build date and one-millionth unit status is also included.
The next-gen Tacoma isn't too far away and there's a decent chance it'll be offered with some level of electrification, but Toyota has assured us the next Tacoma will remain tough as nails. But there's still something uniquely special about owning a Tacoma of this stature and chances are someone will be willing to pay handsomely.
