2019 marks the third model year of the Tacoma's third generation, but this truck still looks fresh.

My tester's TRD Sport trim rocks blocky good looks -- the fenders are appropriately flared, and the high-riding front bumper belies its off-road credentials.

Also, the grille is actually appropriately sized for the vehicle (a rarity in late-model Toyotas).

I'm smitten with the light Cavalry Blue paint job, a delightfully atypical hue for a truck.

The upright nature of the Tacoma's body means visibility is excellent.

Blind spots are minimal, and any that exist are covered by my tester's $800 technology package, which includes blind-spot monitoring.

The driving position, on the other hand, is awkward and frustrating for taller drivers.

The steering wheel tilts and telescopes, but only barely.

Throw a lack of adjustable pedals into the mix, and my 6-foot frame can't find a position where my legs and arms are comfortable simultaneously.
