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.

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.

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.
