There is good news for Birmingham drivers who love the Toyota Tacoma: The 2016 model is on its way with a complete redesign and new suspension tuning, transmissions, and engines. The brand-new Tacoma will give drivers a chance to appreciate their favorite small pickup, but with innovations and updates.
When engineering the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, team members were not afraid to change everything. They added some high-strength steel to the frame for improved strength and rigidity and fine-tuned the suspension to improve ride quality both on- and off-road. You will notice plenty of exterior changes as well, including 4 new wheels that are between 16 and 18 inches. The bold upper grille combines with the more muscular and taller hood to offer a more aggressive attitude than before. Even the locking tailgate on the Tacoma is new.
Brand-New Engine Choices
In the 2016 Tacoma, Birmingham drivers will get to enjoy the 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine you may have seen before. There is also a new option, however: a 3.5-liter V6 that runs on an Atkinson cycle. This engine is actually the first of its kind in the segment due to Toyota’s D-4S technology that features port as well as direct fuel direction. Either engine comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but you can upgrade with the V6 to a 6-speed manual. This new combination creates a Tacoma that is more fuel efficient and powerful than it has ever been.
For those Birmingham drivers who appreciate luxury or premium features in their trucks, there is no shortage of available options on the new Tacoma. Some are familiar from the previous model, while others are new. Just a few premium options include leather-trimmed seats, smart key and push-button start, Qi wireless charging, power moonroof, enhanced touchscreen audio, and blind-spot monitor that includes rear cross traffic alert.
