The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is expected to amaze customers to a great extent because it is the first model in a decade that has undergone a major overhaul in terms of performance and design.
Mid-sized pickup trucks are a popular choice among U.S. consumers and anyone around the globe who does more than just commuting with their vehicle. The Tacoma series is a massive success in the country where it has sold over 1.45 million units in ten years. While the model received some minor changes in its 2013 and 2014 edition, the upcoming 2016 edition is the first one that has significant modifications in multiple areas.
The truck is constructed using durable, high quality steel bodies, which allows it to keep its overall weight under check, while meeting safety standards. The shape of the mirror, the positioning and tightness of the doors and the sides have all been modified so that the vehicle creates very minimal noise when on the road.
It is powered by two different engines. The first is a 2.7 liter model which delivers 159 horsepower and 180 lb per foot of torque. The second in the list, the V6 3.5 liter engine is the powerful of the lot, because it is capable of rendering an impressive 278 horsepower and 265 lb of torque.
The only problem that buyers will face when purchasing the Toyota Tacoma 2016 is that there are over 29 different configurations of the vehicles available. It is a mandatory requirement from the company’s perspective because they can convince every buyer to go for their mid-sized truck irrespective of their requirement and budget. You have one that is priced extremely low with minimal features and another that is rich on features, including four wheel drive, boosted the engine for increased torque among others.
The base price for the vehicle begins at just $23,300 which is extremely low considering the fact that it is a great utility car to go for. The higher in the Tacoma series is priced at $37, 820 which doesn’t include the delivery charges. The models available include SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off- Road and another limited edition variant.
