DOMINATE DIRT...OR ROCKS...OR PAVEMENT IN THE ALL-NEW 2016 TOYOTA TACOMA
Quote:
- Toyota Tacoma Rebuilt Inside and Out
- New Engine, Transmissions and Suspension Tuning
- Legendary TRD Off-road Toughness
- Best-selling Mid-Size Pickup for 10 Straight Years
- Designed, Engineered and Assembled in North America

Whatever the terrain, Tacoma is king of the hill. Rebuilt inside and out with an all-new powertrain and enhanced suspension tuning, America's best*selling mid-size pickup for ten years running is Lord of the Rigs for dirt stomping adventurers. With a legacy of off-road victories and over seven million units sold since 1964, Toyota revitalizes the midsize truck segment with the introduction of the all-new 2016 Tacoma.

"For the past 50 years adventure-seeking Americans have relied on Toyota trucks to take them places, on and off-road," said Bill Fay, group vice president & general manager, Toyota Division. "The all-new homegrown Tacoma is a tough truck designed, developed and built for lifestyles of the young and young-at-heart."

Built from the Ground Up
The new 2016 Tacoma was primarily developed by the Toyota engineering team at Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Mich. Starting with the frame, they added high strength steel to enhance rigidity and overall strength. Ultra-high strength steel was integrated into the body shell using a new hot stamping process that reduces weight.

To create a truck to meet the needs of active drivers on a variety of tamed and untamed surfaces, the suspension was fine-tuned to help deliver a smoother on-road ride, while making it even more capable off-road.

Get Your Motor Running
The new Tacoma will be powered by a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine and an all-new, segment-first 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle V6 equipped with Toyota's D-4S technology, featuring both direct and port fuel injection.

Both engines will be paired to a new six-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift delivering quick and easy shifting. The V6 can also be mated to a new six-speed manual transmission.
The new powertrain makes the Tacoma more powerful and fuel efficient than ever before.

Doing It With Style Inside and Out
Serious, yet fun! This is the Toyota truck design DNA. The Tacoma and Tundra are amazingly capable trucks that are designed to reflect their capability. The Tacoma shares big brother Tundra's more chiseled face, with a hex grille. From there, Tacoma expresses its own identity.

Inspired by desert racing, CALTY designers in Newport Beach, Calif. and Ann Arbor, Mich. made the new Tacoma all about recreational action and athletic agility. To achieve this, the new Tacoma's wheel flares are strong and muscular for greater wheel travel and the high-lift image reflects its purposeful capability. Four new wheel designs range from 16 to 18 inches.

The front end portrays an aggressive attitude with its bold upper grille and a taller, more muscular hood. Mounted high above the clamp-shaped bumper sits slim, high technology headlights that feature projection beam lamps with available LED Daytime Running Lights.

From behind, the new locking tailgate emphasizes Tacoma's wide stance and tough image. The tailgate features an integrated spoiler for improved aerodynamics and a stamped Tacoma logo. The tailgate also adds an easy lowering feature, which allows it to slowly retract, preventing it from slamming down. For the first time ever, Tacoma is available with a tri-fold hard tonneau cover for securing gear when you're away from the truck.

Tacoma's tough exterior is complemented by an interior that conveys a sport truck image reflecting an athletic, go anywhere, off-road feel. Once inside, drivers will notice a "handlebar" design theme in the instrument panel for a more driver-focused experience. Soft-wrapped trim and metallic accents set the stage for a high-quality look and feel that is a starting point for an array of available premium features, including:
- Qi wireless charging
- Smart key with push-button start
- Leather-trimmed seats
- Power moonroof
- Dual-zone automatic climate control
- Enhanced touchscreen audio
- Blind-spot monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- And much more

In addition to offering more premium features, Toyota engineers also made the new Tacoma quieter than ever. To accomplish this, all seals were enhanced and a multi-layer acoustic windshield and sound-absorbing headliner were added. Finally, a floor silencer pad further reduces road noise.

Making the Grades
The new Tacoma will be available in five grades in both 4x2 and 4x4 configurations. Each grade will have its own personality and unique look. Tacoma grades include:
- Work-ready SR
- Iconic SR5
- Athletic TRD Sport
- Tough-as-nails TRD Off-Road
- Top of the line Limited

The two TRD grades are inspired by Toyota Racing Development's more than 35-year history in desert off-road racing and a heritage of vehicles that have helped off-road enthusiasts conquer the toughest terrains in the most remote locations around the globe. Tacoma buyers will now have the opportunity to capture their global adventures on video as every Tacoma will come standard with a GoPro® mount located near the rear-view mirror.

Traveling Off the Beaten Path
Tacoma off-roading adventures will reach new levels of fun in the TRD Off-Road grade thanks to the addition of incredible technology. A Multi-Terrain Select system allows the driver to choose between different types of terrain such as loose rock, or mud and sand. Each input regulates wheel spin by adjusting throttle and brake pressure to provide maximum traction on almost any terrain.

Additional off-road technology includes Automatic Limited Slip and Locking Rear Differential, Hill Start Assist Control (HAC), Clutch Start Cancel (manual transmission only), Active Traction Control, and Crawl Control. Engaging Crawl Control allows the driver to select a speed of 1-5 mph. The Crawl Control system takes over the acceleration and braking, allowing the driver to focus solely on steering.

All Tacoma's will continue to come standard with the Star Safety System.

A North American Story
Tacoma is assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas (TMMTX) in San Antonio and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Baja California (TMMBC) in Baja California, Mexico. Both facilities play a major role in carrying on Tacoma's legendary reputation for quality, durability and reliability (QDR), which has been instrumental in establishing its segment-leading owner loyalty rating. It's QDR has also helped establish Tacoma as the highest rated vehicle in its class for resale value according to Kelley Blue Book. The all-new Tacoma builds on this tradition with improvement in every aspect over the current Tacoma including, design, ruggedness, and performance improvements in horsepower and fuel efficiency.

50 Years and Counting
Backed by 50 years of unwavering capability, an unbreakable attitude, and an off-road racing heritage, the all-new Tacoma is hungry for adventure and ready to tackle almost any challenge that it encounters. It is the ultimate tool for the outdoorsman that likes to get out there and go places.

Toyota Tacoma Diesel Not Worth it Says Chief Engineer
http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...-engineer.html
Quote:
Despite the fact that GM’s new midsize pickup trucks are about to get a diesel engine option, Toyota‘s all-new Tacoma will not.

Speaking during a live chat, Tacoma and Tundra chief engineer Mike Sweers was unequivocal. “We will not be offering a diesel engine,” he said. “We’ve looked at diesels, and diesel is a difficult topic right now because of the new Tier 3 emission regulations.”

Those Tier 3 regulations, set in place by the Environmental Protection Agency, are set to take effect in 2017, further reducing tailpipe emissions and, as a result, making diesel-powered light vehicles harder to pass, not to mention more expensive to build.

Sweers is aware of the obvious advantages of a diesel engine. “Diesel, from a fuel economy standpoint, is about a 30 percent improvement right out of the box,” he said.

However, that’s not enough to offset the negative aspects of diesel engines.

“The downside to diesel is the emissions has to be certified at the same level as a gas engine,” said Sweers. “So the way to do that is you have to put on an after-treatment system.” That system, he claims, would add as much as $3,000 to the cost of a vehicle.

“So if we consider that cost, versus the fuel economy improvement, and the fact that diesel is $1 more per gallon more than gasoline, is there a return on the investment,” asks Sweers rhetorically.

Even if the answer is yes, Sweers wouldn’t bet on diesel tech for the future, pointing to further emissions regulations taking effect in 2019 that could then shelve certain engines. “Can you make that diesel survive? Is it a two-year engine? Is it a four-year engine? That’s the question,” said Sweers. “It’s very difficult to show a return on that investment.”

Instead, Toyota will continue to focus on gasoline engine options for the Tacoma, with a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder as well as a new 3.5-liter V6.

2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro - - Dirtier Than Ever!
Quote:
Toyota Kicks Up More Dust with the Debut of the Newest Tacoma TRD Pro Off-Road Pickup

Whether tackling treacherous snow-covered terrain, driving off the beaten path, or surviving extreme conditions where roads fear to tread, the adrenaline-pumping TRD Pro Series from Toyota is up for any challenge. Two years ago, the TRD Pro Series arose from Toyota’s storied off-road racing heritage, with its numerous victories in the grueling Baja off-road endurance races. Born from this experience, the Toyota TRD Pro Series Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner have helped serious off-roaders go places they never dreamed possible.

This fall, the Toyota Tacoma will rejoin the 2017 model year TRD Pro family with all-new factory-installed off-road equipment designed by the experts at Toyota Racing Development (TRD) to make it even more off-road capable than before.

Aimed squarely at extreme off-roading enthusiasts who challenge themselves and their trucks and SUV’s in some of the harshest conditions, the new 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro will raise the bar on TRD Pro performance. Courtesy of TRD, the new Tacoma TRD Pro will add an array of new performance equipment and features, making this a truly second-generation TRD Pro product, and the new benchmark for challenging off-road terrain.

















Quote:
So whether you’re conquering the Alaskan wilderness, or just tackling your local trail, the 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro pickup is ready to help you rule it all.

I test drove a 2016. Hunting auto trans and feels like a truck. Colorado and Ridgeline blow it away as far as driving is concerned with the Ridgeline feeling a bit less like a truck than the Colorado.

YMMV!

Last month I test drove a TRD Off-Road double cab and was very disappointed with it. I'm not a truck guy to begin with FYI. The new Tacoma felt clumsy, overweight, and lethargic even with its new more powerful V6. However, with that said at least the interior was marginally improved. I originally went to test drive the new Prius and was very impressed with how it drove, handled and how much nicer the inside was. A new Prius or Camry SE Hybrid is what I'm looking at...unless I find a Lexus GS 450h for a reasonable price.

The Ridgeline is really a crossover, but you already know that it's nothing more than the new Pilot with its rear top cut off.

I don't think I've put double-digit number of hours behind the wheel of a pickup truck on a road. And I used to drive one around a small marina yard when I worked there decades back. That's the extent of my truck driving. A large truck just does not interest me. I want something I can run to the home improvement store in, get the family and "supplies" to and from the in-laws that live out in the country, and haul/tow the occasional outdoor equipment from the rental store.

The wife has a 2010 Acura TSX. The walk-behind mower, all folded up, won't fit in the damn thing. Thankfully, it fits in the back of the Celica. And, otherwise, the trunk in the Evo is larger than the one in the TSX.

If you want a small truck that's like a truck, you want the Toyota and you'll live with it's demeanor on the road. If you want to do both, you're more likely to consider the Colorado/Canyon twins. If you're going to be on roads/streets - even gravel - 95+% of the time, I think the Ridgeline is the best. YMMV.

FWIW, I still won't consider a Prius, and there is nothing in the Toyota lineup - since the 86 still has too little power and I've now ruled out the Tacoma - that excites me at all.

As I continue to affirm each time I get serious about looking, I'll either keep holding on to the Celica and Evo, refining them both (at my very, very slow pace and capabilities), or replace either, but not likely both. Current Celica replacement thought is the '18 Fiesta ST. But these things seem to continue to be a ways off. *Shrug*

Now that is surprising.

I understand your indecisiveness completely.
