    Detroit Auto Show Preview: 2016 Toyota Tacoma

      Toyota updates their best selling compact pickup to meet strong new competition.

    Toyota is updating their best selling compact pickup, the Tacoma, to meet strong new competition. Toyota released a few pictures today of the upcoming 2016 Toyota Tacoma. No details have yet been released on power and specifications.

    The Tacoma has been updated to more closely resemble it's bigger brother the Tundra. We do know that 4-cylinder and V6 engines will be available, but we do not know yet if they will be carry overs from the current model.

    Full details on the 2016 Tacoma will be revealed on January 12, 2015 at 12:50 pm at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. We will be on hand to bring you pictures and details from the show floor.

    Wonder if that was a TRD model based on the exhaust note.


    I will have to say this is another BUTT UGLY truck from them. It has that same uglyness that the 4Runner has and the tundra. But then conservatives have been known to buy turds by the millions. So I guess it will sell well.

    The new bed does not match up with the carried-over cab. Looks ridiculous. Leaves a spot for stones and debris to kick up and chip/ding on the bed.

    It will sell well to the folks who love Toyota but I do not see it breaking new ground. Styling is not a lot different and I just do not see it making the impact the two GM trucks will have on the segment. Not until a Ranger or smaller Ford arrives will there be much change to this segment since GM's entry.


    Brand loyalty is very strong in the truck segment no matter the size.


    The Toyota will be a better truck for sure but It will not change as many minds as the GM line.

    I'm pretty much expecting this to follow in line with the Camry and Tundra (and nearly every Toyota) as nothing more than a substantial refresh.

    Toyoyo has a lot of consumer-image baggage problems, ESP in the Tacoma line.
    With a fresh contender from Chevy & GMC, (is the Ranger still en route?) toyota has a steep hill to climb.

    It looks like they took the previous Taco and added a Taurus grille and longer bed. More of an MCE but I'm sure Toyota will call this thing all new. I wouldn't even be surprised if the drivetrains were mostly carryover with maybe a switch to 6 speed automatics across the board.
