The new Tacoma will be powered
by a 2.7-litre four-cylinder engine and an all-new, segment-first 3.5-litre
Atkinson cycle V6 equipped with Toyota’s D-4S technology, featuring both direct
and port fuel injection.
Both engines will be paired to
a new six-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift delivering quick
and easy shifting. The V6 can also be
mated to a new six-speed manual transmission.
The new powertrain makes the Tacoma more powerful and fuel efficient
than ever before.

Inspired by desert racing,
CALTY designers in Newport Beach, Calif. and Ann Arbor, Mich. made the new
Tacoma all about recreational action and athletic agility. To achieve this, the new Tacoma’s wheel
flares are strong and muscular for greater wheel travel and the high-lift image
reflects its purposeful capability. Four
new wheel designs range from 16 to 18 inches.
The front end portrays an
aggressive attitude with its bold upper grille and a taller, more muscular
hood. Mounted high above the
clamp-shaped bumper sits slim, high technology headlights that feature
projection beam lamps with available LED Daytime Running Lights.
The tailgate features an integrated
spoiler for improved aerodynamics and a stamped Tacoma logo. The tailgate also adds an easy lowering
feature, which allows it to slowly retract, preventing it from slamming down.
For the first time ever, Tacoma is available with a tri-fold hard tonneau cover
for securing gear when you’re away from the truck.
Once inside, drivers will
notice a “handlebar” design theme in the instrument panel for a more
driver-focused experience. Soft-wrapped
trim and metallic accents set the stage for a high-quality look and feel that
is a starting point for an array of available premium features.
