2016 Toyota Tacoma shows its face image

Toyota has revealed two new teaser images for the front fascia and back of its 2016 Tacoma, which is scheduled to be unveiled on January 12th during the 2015 edition of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The redesigned truck features a trapezoidal grille and LED headlights, a sculpted hood, chrome trim and extended fender flares. As we’ve learned from previous images released by Toyota, the new model will also have vertical taillights, a body-color rear bumper and a uniquely shaped tailgate which incorporates the Tacoma lettering.

Even if the auto brand did not give too much information on the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, it said that the model will “set the benchmark for midsize pickup performance” and it is going to have “new, rugged tech” which will increase its skills on the street. While the truck maker has not said anything about the Tacoma’s power train, a spied prototype tested a number of months ago revealed a six-speed manual transmission riding on a modified version of the actual model frame.

Toyota has registered the best sales in America with its midsize pickups for the last ten years and has increased output production at its Taco factory in Mexico by 41%. We can only wait and see what the new truck has in store for us when it makes its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January.
