The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is without doubt the epitome of performance and luxury fused together. This off-road biggie is one of the most popular pickup trucks in and around North America and is on the verge of gaining similar success across the Southern states too! The Toyota Tacoma has had a successful history since the early 1960s, and the upcoming variant is no different!
The upcoming vehicle features quite a few technical advancements and a new drivetrain setup along with better suspension and luxury, which makes off-road expeditions a pleasurable experience. Toyota is expected to turn the 2016 Tacoma into a benchmark in the class, in terms of overall performance. The pickup will compete against the Honda Ridgeline, Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier and the Ram 1500.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is being designed and manufactured exclusively out of the United States, and this will help Toyota cater to the needs of the local market. The Toyota Tacoma is exclusively sold on American soil, as Toyota manufactures the HiLux outside North and South America.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma features quite a few major updates while ensuring the traditional reliability, durability, monstrosity and strength in terms of off-road prowess of the vehicle. Power arrives from a 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle direct fuel injected V6 engine block, which is hooked on to a six-speed transmission system. The setup is the first in the midsize pickup segment in America.
However, traditional pickup fanatics will be heartbroken upon knowing that Toyota has decided to let go of the enterprising six-speed manual transmission system on the base model of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, which is powered by a four-cylinder 2.5-liter engine block. Toyota claims that the upcoming pickup is the most energy efficient and performance-friendly in the lineup and will change the market’s perspective towards pickup trucks.
