2016 Toyota Tacoma teased again

2016 Toyota Tacoma teased again

December 18, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Detroit Auto Show , Truck , Toyota , Design/Style Toyota is following up its muddy teaser of the back of the 2016 Tacoma with a dusty new one that shows the truck’s face for the first time. Without seeing more of the pickup, it’s impossible to make any educated judgments, but the company appears to be taking the Taco’s styling in a new direction. The 2016 Tacoma features a hexagonal grille outlined in chrome and a narrow intake underneath visually connecting the foglights. The headlights take on a squinting look, and this shot suggests LED running lights at the outer edge (perhaps just for top-level trims). You can also just make out a bit boxier of a flare for the front fender. The truckmaker hasn’t announced anything about the Tacoma’s powertrain, but we spied a prototype testing several months ago with a six-speed manual transmission. That one reportedly rode on a modified version of the current model’s frame, as well. Toyota apparently has high hopes, though, because it’s ramping up production at the Taco’s factory in Mexico by 41 percent . The truck debuts at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show on January 12, and you can read Toyota’s to-the-point press release about it below .

Toyota confirms 2016 Tacoma for Detroit

Toyota confirms 2016 Tacoma for Detroit

December 11, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Detroit Auto Show , Truck , Toyota , Off-Road A week on from an announcement by Toyota’s Bob Carter, the Japanese marque has formally announced that the 2016 Toyota Tacoma will make its global debut next month at the 2015 North American International Auto Show . Not only that, but the company has given us a very minute (and very muddy) teaser image, showing the truck’s tailgate and driver’s side taillight. Like its big brother, the Tundra , the 2016 Tacoma will feature its name embossed on its tailgate. Beyond that, though, there’s really not much to be gleaned from this sole teaser shot. Of course, we’ll have much, much more on the next-generation Taco when it arrives in a month’s time. Until then, check out Toyota’s hilariously brief and to-the-point press release, available below.

Toyota TRD Pro Chase Trucks are ready to hit the desert at SEMA

Filed under: Aftermarket , SEMA Show , Truck , Crossover , Toyota , Off-Road Toyota marks the 35th anniversary of its Toyota Racing Development performance arm this year, and the division is celebrating at this year’s SEMA Show with a quartet of tuned off-roaders based on on the 4Runner , Tacoma and Tundra that look more than ready to go just about anywhere. All four of them will take part in this year’s Baja 1000 race, but only the Tundra (far left in the above photo) is actually competing. The other three will be there to act as support vehicles. Inspired by the production TRD Pro Series trucks , the 4Runner, Tacoma and Tundra are prepared by off-road fabricator N-Fab with a mix of TRD and the company’s own parts to be able to take whatever the grueling, 1,000-mile can throw at them. The trio is fettled with extra communications equipment, GPS, additional lights and all sorts of body and suspension modifications to help them survive the ordeal. Scroll down to read more about these tuned trucks, and check out the gallery for a closer look at them.

Toyota recalls 690,000 Tacoma trucks for rusty leaf springs, fire risk

Toyota recalls 690,000 Tacoma trucks for rusty leaf springs, fire risk

September 30, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Truck , Recalls , Toyota Toyota has announced that it will be issuing a recall of 690,000 Tacoma pickups from model years 2005 through 2011. The affected vehicles include both the four-wheel-drive model and the two-wheel-drive PreRunner (but not the standard 4×2 pickups), which may have a rather serious problem with their rear suspensions. In some cases, corrosion and stress could cause one of the three or four leaves in the rear suspension’s leaf springs to fracture. While the trucks can still be driven with a broken leaf, Toyota is concerned that it could move out of position and impact other components in the rear of the truck, with a particular focus on the fuel tank. Needless to say, but a piece of metal continuously impacting anything, let alone the fuel tank, is cause for concern. As of this writing, there have been no reports of crashes, injuries, fires or deaths due to this problem, although that won’t stop Toyota from informing all affected customers of the issue. Those 690,000 owners will need to report in to dealers for inspections and, if necessary, repairs. Scroll down for the press release from Toyota.

Toyota Hilux successor spotted

Toyota Hilux successor spotted

September 16, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Spy Photos , Truck , Europe , Toyota The midsize truck segment is suddenly seemingly exploding with new vehicles worldwide, even here in North America. Not only will the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon be available very soon, Toyota is already testing a replacement for its aging Tacoma and Honda has promised a Ridgeline replacement within the next 18 months . Also, the recently shown Nissan Navara is said to portend the future of our Frontier . Here’s some more fresh evidence from Europe of this pickup boom with the next generation of its venerable Hilux in testing. Thanks to Top Gear and sometimes the evening news , the Hilux has built a reputation of being able to go just about anywhere. According to out spy shooter, this particular pickup was spotted during hot weather testing in southern Europe. Interestingly, a Volkswagen Amarok was along for the ride as a benchmark. Because the VW tends to offer a bit more comfort than the generally utilitarian Hilux, this could indicate Toyota is considering taking the new truck in a slightly comfier, more refined direction. Compared to the current model, this camouflaged tester sports a narrower front grille and headlights. The hood scoop is also absent here.
