Whis tacoma is most reliable?

I am curious to know in terms of realiability. The most reliable tacoma of all would be: what year? 4cyl/6cyl? 4wd/2wd? Trd package? Which combination would last longer?

You answered your own question. Tacoma is the most reliable!

The more complicated something is/ more components are on it, the more chances it has to break. So to answer your question, tacomas are all very reliable, but you will definitely have the least failures on a vehicle that is a base 2wd truck with very little options or modifications. I wouldn't say either motor is more reliable than the other.

I would say 4cyl 2wd. Less parts=Less chance of failure IMO

A piece of crap that's been well-maintained might be more reliable than an engineering marvel that's been severely abused/neglected. Toyotas are generally very reliable, even with average maintenance. About the specific drivetrain configuration, I agree with Fisher's simplicity approach (4cyl/2wd). On the current gen, the automatic transmissions are just as reliable as the manuals.
