The Toyota Tacoma is renowned worldwide for its incredible performance. It’s ready for anything with a spacious cabin, top technology, and off-road equipment that lets you take on life both on and off the pavement. It’s also super stylish, offering a sporty and sophisticated way to tackle the unknown. However, one thing that most people don’t immediately think of when they think of the Toyota Tacoma is safety. Sure, all Toyotas are safe, right? After all, they invest a ton of time and money into safety research at their Michigan facility every year. But just how safe is this Clermont Toyota truck?

As it turns out, extremely. Check out the photo below – an EMT recently posted this picture on the Toyota USA Facebook. He and his partner were called out for a traumatic accident; a Toyota Tacoma was hit by a semi and as you can see, the results were devastating for both the front and back ends. The truck was a total loss except for the cab – as you can clearly see in the picture, it’s intact. All the passengers were OK, and the EMT said it was truly a miracle that they were left unhurt.
