Finding affordable auto insurance for a Toyota Tacoma is dependent upon a complicated formula that considers factors such as how safe your vehicle is, where your vehicle is garaged, and the level of deductible you choose. Drivers will pay around $668 a year to insure their Tacoma, but that figure is calculated using a 40-year-old married male driver with full physical damage coverage and $250 deductibles.
But there is a good chance that you are not 40 years old and maybe not even male, maybe you are single instead of married, or maybe you prefer to not insure for full coverage. Having even a minor difference in policy rating criteria or coverages could end up in a significant change in the coverage rate.
This illustrates why the best method for finding the most affordable coverage for your Toyota is to do the rate comparisons yourself. It’s really quite easy you will receive rate quotes from some of the most affordable companies around.
Your vehicle’s trim level will have an impact the cost of coverage, so the cost to insure a Tacoma 2WD trim level will be $42 cheaper than the cost to insure the fancier Tacoma Double Cab TRD Sport Package 4WD trim level, as shown in the table below.

The example below illustrates how your deductible choice can impact insurance premiums when researching cheap insurance for a Toyota Tacoma. The premiums assume a single female driver, full coverage, and no policy discounts are applied.
In the chart above, a 30-year-old driver could lower rates by $218 a year by changing from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $328 by selecting a $1,000 deductible. Youthful drivers, such as the 20-year-old chart data, could potentially save $476 or even more just by choosing higher deductibles. When insureds make the decision to increase the deductibles on their policy, it will be important to have enough savings set aside to be able to cover the extra out-of-pocket expense that is associated with using high deductibles.
