The North American Auto Show is going on this week and we couldn’t be more excited. This Auto Show, happening in Detroit, always features the latest and greatest new cars, trucks and SUVs that we can expect to see hit our dealership within the next few years, and this year is no different. While the Auto Show just started, we think that the best moment of the show might already be over – the moment that Toyota officially revealed the 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
While the exterior of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma was already leaked earlier this month, we now have the full details of this hot new truck. For starters, the 2016 Tacoma will have a 2.7L four-cylinder engine or the more popular, and more powerful, 3.5L V6 engine. The front end of the Tacoma has also been redesigned, giving it a hexagonal front grille.
Of course, one of the areas that the Tacoma seems to have made the most changes is with its tailgate. Yupp, its tailgate. The tailgate will have a standard lift/drop assist feature. This means that you won’t be able to slam the tailgate down, but it will more gracefully lower. Add in the new locking feature, and the available tonneau cover for securing your things, and these seemingly small or silly changes to the Tacoma’s tailgate and truck bed really make a difference for those who plan to use the Tacoma as it was designed to be used, as a truck.
