The Tacoma is a mid-size pickup manufactured by Toyota since 1995. So far, there are two generations, but current model will finally be replaced after more than a decade of production. It will come this year as 2016 Toyota Tacoma. This model made its debut last weekend at the Edmonton Motor Show. Since second-generation model was presented in 2004, it seems natural that new model will come with huge improvement. We all used on this pickup’s excellent performances, but this time it will come also with significant improvement in its look, both exterior and interior.
2016 Toyota Tacoma styling
New 2016 Toyota Tacoma styling comes with significant changes, when it is about design. It comes with completely new structure, which is made of high-strength steel and which also features new hot-stamping making technology so this pickup won’t be just harder to its predecessor, but also much lighter, so expect huge improvement in fuel economy also. The exterior is completely different, compared to current model. It far more attractive, modern and it features significantly more aggressive lines than second-generation model. Front end features new, taller, more muscular hood and hex upper grille, something that we already saw on some other company’s models. On the other side, rear end is full of unique details. For example, there is a new locking tailgate, which features an integrated spoiler for improved aerodynamics.
When it is about interior, new 2016 Toyota Tacoma styling also comes completely redesigned. New cabin is more driver-oriented and beside new styling, it also features new, higher-quality materials. It comes with plenty of metallic accents, which give additional dose of luxury. New 2016 Toyota Tacoma styling also features many hi-tech features such as i wireless charging, smart key with push-button start, leather-trimmed seats, power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control.
