The 2016 Toyota Tacoma arrives a Parks Toyota of DeLand in DeLand, FL, later this year, but we're already breathless with excitement by what weve seen from its debut at the North American International Auto Show. The best-selling mid-size pickup for ten years running will undoubtedly continue its tradition with its improved performance, athletic redesign, technological additions, and off-road capabilities.
The major improvements under the hood come from the two new engines available in the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. The standard is a 2.7L 4-cylinder, but you'll also be able to choose a 3.5L Atkinson cycle V6 with Toyota's D-4S technology that features direct and port fuel injection. A new 6-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift will be paired with both engines for swift, smooth shifts; however, a 6- speed manual transmission will be available as well. Toyota engineers also spent time enhancing the suspension to not only offer a smoother ride while you're navigating city roads and interstates, but also strengthen its already stout off-roading capabilities.
From the moment the 2016 Toyota Tacoma comes into view, its commanding appearance demands to be seen. The thick outline of the hexagonal front grille and taller, muscular hood will catch the eyes of many admirers. Corner confidently along your commute or tackle tough terrain in four new wheel designs that range from 16 to 18 inches. Secure the truck bed with a locking tailgate with an easy lowering feature to avoid damage, an integrated spoiler to increase downforce and efficiency, and a stamped Tacoma logo just to look cool.
Just because you want your 2016 Toyota Tacoma to be a workhorse doesn't mean you can't have nice things inside the cabin. Get a full sensory experience; combine that new car smell with the handlebar- shaped design of the instrument panel, soft-touch materials on the trim, and metallic accents. Hear that? You probably won't thanks to sound-proofing features added to the windshield, headliner and floorboard for a quieter ride. Gadget geeks will rejoice at all the tech options - Qi wireless charging, smart key and push-button start, and enhanced touchscreen audio. Meanwhile, luxury lovers will revel in comfort upgrades like leather-trimmed seats, dual-zone automatic climate controls, and power moonroof.
Ready to get off the asphalt? The 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road model provides ultimate off-road capabilities. Set the Multi-Terrain Select to match the surface you're driving on to help prevent wheel spin. Engage the Crawl Control to let it regulate acceleration and braking while you concentrate on steering. You'll also get help for non-paved routes from features like Hill Start Assist Control and Active Traction Control.
Conceptualized, designed, and assembled right in the United States, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma will come in five models - SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and Limited. Keep checking with Parks Toyota of DeLand for details on when this amazing truck will be available in our showroom!
