Toyota Tacoma – 2015 Best Resale Value Award Winner


Every year, Kelley Blue Book’s releases their list for the Top 10 2015 Best Resale Value Awards and we are excited that this year the vehicle toping their list is none other than the 2015 Toyota Tacoma. While we love the Tacoma, and think it’s always a great buy, we are surprised that it would be ranked so high the year before a major redesign.

Kelley Blue Book looks at the vehicles’ predicted resale values after 5 years and after 3 years. Every vehicle on the top 10 list this year will maintain over half of its resale value after 5 years of ownership, but the 2015 Toyota Tacoma is predicted to retain much more.

After 3 years of ownership, the 2015 Tacoma is expected to maintain 74.9% of its value. This means that if you paid the starting MSRP of $20,765 this year, by 2018, your Tacoma would still be worth $15,552.99. After 5 years, so by 2020, your Tacoma would retain 60.4% of its value and be worth $12,542.06. This is really impressive considering that the average car normally retains only about 40% of its value after a five-year period. So, if you’re looking to make an investment into your future, why not stop by Haddad Toyota today to check out the all-new 2015 Toyota Tacoma,’s winner of the 2015 Best Resale Value Award.

New Features Makes Huge Impact – 2016 Toyota Tacoma’s Tailgate

2014 Toyota Tacoma
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma, the first redesigned Tacoma in 10 years, was long overdue. While it’s still got the spunk and strength that attracts people to it, the new Tacoma also adds features that will help make any job you ask of it just a little easier.

The North American Auto Show is going on this week and we couldn’t be more excited. This Auto Show, happening in Detroit, always features the latest and greatest new cars, trucks and SUVs that we can expect to see hit our dealership within the next few years, and this year is no different. While the Auto Show just started, we think that the best moment of the show might already be over – the moment that Toyota officially revealed the 2016 Toyota Tacoma.

While the exterior of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma was already leaked earlier this month, we now have the full details of this hot new truck. For starters, the 2016 Tacoma will have a 2.7L four-cylinder engine or the more popular, and more powerful, 3.5L V6 engine. The front end of the Tacoma has also been redesigned, giving it a hexagonal front grille.

Of course, one of the areas that the Tacoma seems to have made the most changes is with its tailgate. Yupp, its tailgate. The tailgate will have a standard lift/drop assist feature. This means that you won’t be able to slam the tailgate down, but it will more gracefully lower. Add in the new locking feature, and the available tonneau cover for securing your things, and these seemingly small or silly changes to the Tacoma’s tailgate and truck bed really make a difference for those who plan to use the Tacoma as it was designed to be used, as a truck.

Small and Mighty – the 2015 Toyota Tacoma hits all the right notes. With an available V6 engine, and a comfortable interior, the 2015 Tacoma is ready for any adventure you are ready to go on. Ranked as the Best Compact Truck for the Monday by U.S. News & World Report for 2014, the Tacoma comes with upgrade technology, such as a 6.1-inch touch-screen display, MP3 capabilities, USB ports, and Bluetooth® phone and music streaming. It’s got everything that the technophile, truck lover could ever need, at a great price. In fact, the 2014 Toyota Tacoma was named a 2014 Excellent Value and the 2014 Most Award Pick-up by IntelliChoice. But this isn’t everything that sets the Tacoma a step ahead of its competition. It’s the little things that make it stand out.

When compared to the competition, the Tacoma’s great interior and exterior features shine even more. For starters, the Toyota Tacoma comes with standard power mirrors and is the only compact pick-up to have this feature, standard. Not only is the Tacoma the only one with standard power mirrors on its lowest trim level, but the Toyota Tacoma Double Cab also comes with standard power locks, something that the 2015 Toyota Tacoma Competition woefully lacks. Shouldn’t these features be standard on all trucks?

If you agree with us and if you’re in the market for a new pick-up, then stop by Haddad Toyota today. The 2015 Toyota Tacoma won’t disappoint.

2014 Toyota Camry – One of the Best Cars for its Cost

The new 2014 Toyota Camry and 2014 Toyota Tacoma have been named U.S. News and World Report’s “2014 Best Cars for the Money,” with the Camry taking top honors in the Best Midsize Car category and the Tacoma doing the same in the Best Compact Truck segment.

At 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, the Camry is one of the most fuel-efficient midsize sedans on the market. Toyota’s engineers have also gone to great lengths to ensure the 2014 model would shed its predecessor’s reputation of being a bore. That’s no easy task for a car designed to be economical—but auto writers agree it successfully pulled it off.
