At the 2015 Detroit show, The 2016 Toyota Tacoma and Tacoma TRD models were revealed for the first time. The previous Toyota Tacoma models have been sold for about 3 million since initial release 20 years ago in the U.S. and they mostly are still on roads today. It means that the pickup managed to top its closest rival the Chevrolet Colorado 2 to 1. Toyota Tacoma is more than the capable, outgoing truck as it offers fun driving and off-road capabilities.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma will keep the previous five trim levels the SR, the SR5, the TRD Sport, the TRD Off-Road, and the Limited. Detailed suspension adjustments and a Multi-Terrain Select system will come in the two off-road models that help the pickup to adapt to different terrain. It will change the wheelspin, throttle response, and brake compression to make crawling through different land easier. There are also hill start assist, a restricted-slip and locking back differential, clutch start stop, active traction switch, and crawl regulator. Off-road enthusiasts will have more fun with a GoPro feature mounted near the backview mirror to quickly help upload your adventures to YouTube. The Tacoma is available in an extended cab or Access Cab and Double Cab body style. The interior gets leather upholstery, a very user-friendly touchscreen interface, push-button start, a moonroof, climate control, blind-spot alert and cross traffic warning.
