At first glance the revised Toyota Tacoma appears to be a much-needed step forward for the imported midsize pickup.
Everything about the new 2016 – from its chiseled, modern face to its fresh new tail lamps – says ‘muscular, sculpted, and buff.’
Toyota hasn’t released any details yet, but the badging on this truck suggests a V6 engine under the hood. Presumably we’ll have more specs and information on the 2016 truck next week during the Detroit Auto Show next week.
At the 2014 Chicago Auto Show an awesome looking new TRD Package was introduced – the Toyota Off-Road TRD Pro Package. Touted as the next step in TRD off-road performance evolution, this new edition to the Toyota lineup is definitely going to grab some attention.
Each 4Runner, Tundra and Tacoma with this new off-road package will include the following:
TRD Bilstein shocks with remote reservoirs
TRD-tuned front springs
TRD front skid plate
Unique front grille with “TOYOTA” badging (pays tribute to early iconic Toyota models)
TRD floor mats
TRD shift knobs
One of our favourite additions to this new off-road package is the “TOYOTA” badging on the front grille. Its nice to see Toyota paying tribute to the early, and definitely iconic, Toyota models.
Using Timbren Suspension Enhancement Systems Off-Road.
Adding a Timbren Suspension Enhancement System to one of these new off-road packaged vehicles will be an easy way to upgrade the existing suspension performance as well as protect it against the abuse its likely to receive. Off-Road vehicles are no strangers to abuse and neither are Timbren Suspension Enhancement System kits. Although originally designed for vehicles with heavy loads they can be used as Jounce bumpers to gently cushion big blows and prevent bottoming out that expensive new toy.
As of the writing of this post we don’t currently have a Suspension Enhancement System for these vehicles because they haven’t yet been released for us to design one. In the meantime check out the lifted kits we have available for lifted Jeep applications.
