Not totally sure if this applies to all vehicles, yet I also don't remember to have ever seen any disc brake made out of aluminium for instance.

My Tacoma has rear drums.
Even though the Tacoma is not sold officially in my country (privately-imported ones show up once in a while), where since 2001 the Hilux is the only Toyota truck available, it's no surprise it has rear drums. Just like the Hilux and most other Toyota commercial vehicles within a similar size bracket.
