2015 NAIAS LIVE: 2016 Toyota Tacoma image

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma has been officially presented to the public, in a premiere, during the 2015 North American International Auto Show.

The newest rival of the GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado is called the Tacoma and it is coming in a redesigned version, as Toyota has officially pulled the wraps off its body at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show. Some of the things which are worth mentioning include the LED daytime running lights (optional) on the distinctive headlights, muscular fenders, the easy lowering tailgate, a prominent front grille and 16- to 18-inch of wheel sizes.

Besides the exterior design, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma has also received a modified cabin too and here we can mention the standard windshield mounted GoPro camera, the circular air vents, the metallic trim and the car manufacturer says that the higher end versions can also get the touch screen infotainment system, the wireless smartphone charger and leather upholstery, amongst others.

The new Toyota Tacoma is taking its power from a 2.7 liter four-cylinder engine while, according to the Japanese based automaker, the high end variants will be getting the 3.5 liter Atkinson cycle V6 unit under their hoods, which has received the D-4S technology. The performance specifications haven’t been released just yet but we do know that the new 6-speed automatic will connect both engines while the V6 versions will also be coming with a six-speed manual. More details on the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, including its pricing, are limited at this time.
