The Toyota Tacoma: Built for safety

August 22nd, 2018 by

When the Orlando Toyota Tacoma comes to mind, the first characteristic you likely think of isn’t safety. Performance, definitely. This truck is renowned globally for its versatile and powerful performance, perfect for getting off the pavement. You may also think of style, as it has a unique and sporty appearance woven into its design both inside and outside. However, safety probably is at the bottom of the list of qualities that spring to mind when you think of the Toyota Tacoma.

This Toyota Tacoma survived a traumatic accident

Not anymore – after a recent post to the Toyota USA Facebook, safety has definitely become a more prominent benefit when it comes to owning this Toyota truck! Take a look at the photo below:

This truck was in a traumatic accident with a semi-truck – for most vehicles, that would mean a complete and total loss of the vehicle and likely, devastating injuries to its occupants. But when you look at this picture, you can see that while the front and back ends of the truck were completely crushed by the semi and the force of the impact, the cab is intact. And so were its passengers. It seems impossible, but the picture doesn’t lie, and neither does the EMT who submitted it.
