The 2016 Toyota Tacoma has been redesigned from the ground up for the upcoming year, although, the new vehicle is consistent with its heritage. Toyota has worked on almost all of the parts belonging to the previous version of the vehicle, which makes the new Tacoma all the more interesting.
The Toyota Tacoma is one of the best-selling pickups in North America and Toyota plans to uphold its present status with the new vehicle. The transmission and suspension deserves major credit while numerous cosmetic changes have also been implemented. Engineers claim that the Tacoma has been designed to handle off-road adventures as well, which is a major step out of the league.
The usual contenders in the pickup segment include the likes of the Nissan Frontier, Chevrolet Colorado, Honda Ridgeline and the RAM 1500. Experts believe that the Tacoma brings in a new level of dependability and flawless performance to the class, much like its previous models had done in the past.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma was revealed at the Edmonton Motor Show this April and was a delight for pickup truck lovers. In fact, it was highly appreciated by the SUV fanatics too, as it is based on the Toyota Outlander! If you belong to the category of adventure lovers, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is bound to appeal to your senses.
Toyota is offering two drivetrain options on the vehicle, including a 3.50liter Atkinson cycle V6, based on Toyota’s D-4S technology, featuring both port and direct fuel injection mechanisms. The second is the already popular 2.7-liter engine block, which sports the same specifications. Hence, fuel economy is guaranteed.
Both engine options are hooked on to a six-speed automatic transmission system with electronic shifts for quick and easy shifting! Toyota has an optional six-speed manual transmission system for the V6 engine block, which offers class-leading mileage along with decent performance levels.
