2016 Toyota Tacoma mpg, specs, price – With 60 percent of the market, the Tacoma has dominated the market in the pickup truck category for almost a decade, the only serious rival in recent years has been the Nissan Frontier, so the Toyota company has seen no need for any big makeovers in that period. But, with the arrival of the new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, Toyota has finally been forced to make some major redesigning. Coming as a replacement for the model that has been on the market for the past 9 years, the third-generation Toyota Tacoma 2016 will have new styling, new structure, a new V6 engine, new transmissions, and upgraded suspension.

As far as the exterior appearance of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma goes, the redesigned front fascia is more exciting than before, with a daring new grille, wider attitude from the larger fenders, and the Cheshire Cat lower air intake. While in the back, the fenders get the same widened look with matching colored flairs, and the tailgate gets a cool-looking “TACOMA” stamp and some hard accent lines. Furthermore, a new set of alloy wheels with black accents will also come with the new Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.

The Tacoma’s interior now has a “handlebar” design theme in the instrument panel. The dash and center console have been upgraded with soft-touch materials, giving them a more upscale look while still holding the sport truck theme. Updates also include leather upholstered seats, a power moonroof, dual-zone climate controls, the Qi wireless charging station for Qi-equipped devices, smart-key activated doors and ignition, an improved Entune touchscreen, Blind-sport monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and a built-in GoPro mount near the rear-view mirror. Alongside with the updated materials, the new Toyota Tacoma 2016 now has a quieter cabin, thanks to the laminated acoustic windshield, a sound-absorbing headliner, and a thick silencer pad under the floor carpeting.
