2016 Toyota Tacoma Release Date and Price Rumor
2016 Toyota Tacoma Release Date and Price
North American International Auto Show will be the witness of redesigned of 2016 Toyota Tacoma. We can see teaser photos of Tacoma which has more aggressive look with its narrower headlights and angular grille for a full-size truck. If we find the comparison, Toyota 4Runner SUV is the similar one. Rumor said that 2016 Toyota Tacoma have no more regular cab, but Motor Trend stated that the Access Cab and Double Cab models will still offered by Toyota. We know that the outgoing Tacoma still has no redesigned since 2005 model year. Moreover, the 2015 model still on the last place between two other compacts rankings. There is no reason for Toyota to keep their current Tacoma without any major changes and updates on the engine and design. For your information, 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is the Truck of the Year by Motor Trend. Thus, Toyota will have many inspirations by Colorado in designing their 2016 Toyota Tacoma right?

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma release date is not announced by Toyota yet. However, it is allegedly will be launched in the end of 2015 if we are seeing the 2016 there is the model year or it will be happened in the North American International auto show at Detroit in 12th January 2015 later. Toyota promises about “all-new” for their 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Many reviewers doubt about “all-new” that usually Toyota done in their vehicle line up because is sometimes less comprehensive. As stated before, Tacoma needs the all new redesigned to keep this truck on the competitive line. The new sheetmetal which covered almost the whole SUVs and crossovers now would be featured for this truck. Through the cabin, Tacoma should have a lot more modern cabin electronics and integration in order to follow the global movement and of course their rivals. About the cab, actually Toyota had announced that the regular-cab of Tacoma was omitted. However, it cannot close the chance for dozens of cabs configurations for this truck.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma price will not far away from its rivals such as Colorado and Canyon which priced at $20,120 and $20,995. We predict the starting MSRP of 2016 Toyota Tacoma at $20,765 rate because of competitive reason. As same as the current engine of 2015 engine, a 4.0 liter V6 engine will be included under the hood of 2016 Toyota Tacoma because Toyota has a rather limited number of engines of their vehicle line up. Toyota has capability to develop the Tacoma’s engine become turbo-diesel, turbocharged or just efficient V6 with four-cylinder in order to complete the “all-new” changes that promise before. To mate the engine, six-speed unit transmission would be fitted properly. The current model still has five-speed gearbox which has poor power. Better fuel efficiency also become the concerned problem of Toyota now in order to follow the eco-friendly vehicle if they want this truck become the best-selling truck next year. The current V6 engine just produced 17 mpg city and 21 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined rating.
