Next-gen Toyota Tacoma to debut at Detroit Auto Show

Next-gen Toyota Tacoma to debut at Detroit Auto Show

December 5, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Detroit Auto Show , Performance , Truck , Lexus , Toyota , Luxury Toyota’s confirmation comes on the heels of General Motors’ successful launch of its own midsize pickups. The next generation of the Toyota Tacoma pickup truck will be revealed in January at the Detroit Auto Show , a top executive confirmed Thursday. Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations for Toyota , offered no other details, but the new version of the pickup is expected to have significant upgrades compared with the aging model on sale now. Our spy shooters caught a prototype testing this summer, and rumors of the new generation have been swirling for months. We’ve also previously reported that Toyota is planning to ramp up production next April at a factory in Mexico that builds the Tacoma. Toyota’s confirmation comes on the heels of General Motors ‘ successful launch of its own midsize pickups, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon , which have garnered awards, positive reviews and solid sales since they arrived in showrooms this fall. It’s unclear how large the new Tacoma will be, especially considering that the Canyon and Colorado flirt with fullsize territory. The Tacoma was last updated in 2012, and the segment has changed dramatically since then with the addition of the GM trucks. Another Tacoma competitor, Honda’s aging Ridgeline , is also expected to re-launch in 2015 , which would leave the Nissan Frontier as the oldest truck in the field. Tacoma sales have slipped 4.1 percent to 140,757 units this year, though they posted a 3.3-percent gain in November.
