Built around a work hard, play hard philosophy, the Toyota Tacoma has long been a best-selling model in the compact pickup truck segment with a reputation for reliability, quality and versatility. Offering countless variations and options for pickup truck customers, the Toyota Tacoma platform can be molded to meet driver needs. Even with such a sterling reputation, the compact pickup truck segment is becoming even more competitive with the addition of the Chevy Colorado, forcing the best-selling Tacoma to take it to another level with the redesigned 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Fort Smith, AR.
Rebuilt from the top down and the inside out, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is designed and built to dominate the road, trail and the compact pickup truck segment. Two new, more refined powertrains promise a more powerful and more efficient performance while an enhanced suspension will deliver miles and miles of adventure with a smoother ride. Styled to match its Toyota truck DNA, the new Toyota Tacoma employs a more muscular grille design highlighted by LED running lights that work in conjunction with the high-lift image incorporated by strong wheel flares and new 16- and 18-inch wheel designs. The backend of the future Tacoma is built to match as well with an integrated spoiler and a stamped Tacoma logo in the new easy-lowering tailgate.

A new, more muscular exterior is complemented well by a refined interior that offers a reprieve from the dirt, dust and noise of the road. The 2016 Toyota Tacoma design provides drivers with a calm, relaxing drive that is enhanced further by a cabin that employs noise-reducing technology and a calm ride. Toyota Tacoma models will be available in five diverse trim levels, from the practical, work-ready SR trim to the luxurious, elite-level Limited trim. Additional features inundate the Toyota Tacoma interior with new amenities that improve on convenience, luxury, comfort, entertainment and safety.
New Qi wireless charging and the smart key system with push-button start upgrade your convenience while available leather-trimmed seats and a power moonroof add a sense of luxury. Dual-zone automatic climate control will significantly increase comfort in the Tacoma cabin just as an enhanced touchscreen audio interface will augment entertainment. Enhanced safety was another goal of designers that started with a high-strength steel frame and new advanced safety features that include blind-spot monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems. Tacoma drivers who opt for the adventurous TRD Off-Road trim will also love the new standard GoPro mount, so they can record each thrill.
Two new engine options under the hood of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Fort Smith, AR will make the best-selling Tacoma even more powerful and efficient than the preceding model. Base Toyota Tacoma models will be equipped with a refined, efficiency-breeding 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. The highlight of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma engine lineup, however, is an all-new, class-exclusive 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle V-6 that employs Toyota’s D-4S technology, featuring both direct and port fuel injection. V-6-powered Tacomas will be available with a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. While no power and fuel economy ratings have been released yet, we expect to see impressive numbers. Off-road adventurers will also love the new Multi-Terrain Select system, allowing you to customize your off-road thrills based on what terrain you are faced with.
