Toyota Canada wrapped up the #tacomatour2016 here in BC, the final stop for the public to check out the all new 2016 Toyota Tacoma up close before it arrives in Toyota dealerships this October. Since our coverage of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma at the Detroit NAIAS, a few new details have emerged.
The new Tacoma features a strengthened chassis and frame, powered by a 160hp 2.7L 4 cylinder in 4×2 Access Cab and SR5 trim, and an all new 270hp 3.5L Atkinson cycle V6 featuring both direct and port fuel injection for improved performance and efficiency in the TRD Off-Road, TRD Sport and Limited trim. TRD options such as suspension will be available in various trims, and not limited to the TRD specific models.
The updated interior comes standard with a GoPro mount, as well as premium features such as Qi wireless charging, push button start, power moon roof, dual zone climate control, heated front seats, and a touchscreen audio system. Safety features are also new, including blind spot monitoring, as well as cross traffic alert systems. A new traction control system helps you navigate any situation with a multi terrain system, automatic limited slip and locking rear diff, hill start assist, and crawl control.
Production of the 2016 Tacoma begins in September at the Toyota plant in San Antonio, Texas. Expect the all new Tacoma to arrive in Canadian dealerships in mid October. Prices have not been announced, but we will update you as soon as it’s available.
