2006 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab: If you're not feeling especially charitable, you could dismiss the "all brand-new" 2016 Toyota Tacoma family members (including this TRD Off-Road Dual Taxi) as little bit greater than mild if thorough refresh. The designing is new, yet only just-- a variation on a theme, not a clean-sheet change, as well as because feeling, I suppose it's comparable to the ever-evolving Jeep Wrangler.

2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab review

The similarities (to put it lightly) continue under the skin. The wheelbase is identical, as well as total length is just a few inches better on the new vehicle. The bed is an inch deeper, however the very same width. And more.

On the other hand, you ought to recognize that Toyota had a quite darn excellent vehicle to begin with in the outbound Tacoma. Was it showing its age, specifically as compared to up-and-coming midsizers like the reborn Colorado as well as Canyon? Aesthetically, perhaps, however the Tacoma's stout bases required refinement, not reinvention. There's plenty of advantage in the evolutionary approach.

The powertrain on this specific Tacoma TRD Off-Road is one shot of old-- a six-speed manual transmission-- and one shot of brand-new-- a downsized 3.5-liter normally aspirated V6. As with the bigger, V8-powered Toyota Tundra, and the 2015 Tacoma before it, it all plays along with fascinating, unanticipated level of smoothness. You 'd never understand the engine is down half a liter, and also there's a great deal of added oomph above the 3,500 rpm mark. The six-speed is really enjoyable to row via, as well as just like the manual on the Wrangler, it feels like a great suitable for an enthusiast-oriented truck.

Normally, I really did not have the possibility to take the TRD Off-Road off-road. Point is, I in fact intend to see how it manages itself off the sidewalk since I've spent a long time in the truck. I'll choose chances to do so when things warm up. As well as I did pack on the miles comfortably-- and also deal with a truly unpleasant slog with the period's worst ice storm to this day with self-confidence. The truck really did not so much as toss a grip control warning.

That's the day I discovered one notably traditional aspect of the Tacoma: its 4x4 system. Forgetting to de-power the front wheels prior to transitioning from slushmaggedon to a dry, covered vehicle parking framework, I discovered the vehicle lugging, binding and also-- to my embarrassment-- delaying as I tried to make a tight turn into a parking place. So you'll absolutely wish to change it to 2WD, which you have to do manually through a console-mounted dial, before on-pavement handling.

Well duh, you will tell me, possibly in an insulting e-mail. This is fundamental 4WD stuff. True enough, yet it's simple to obtain accustomed to the automated 4WD establishing located on a raising number of vehicles (including the GMC Canyon). Critics will hold this versus the Tacoma, proving that it's behind the technical curve; followers will certainly say this boosts its hardcore off-road cred.

Wherefore it deserves, the gas economic situation estimates appear optimistic. With minimal 4WD use, I returned 16.0 mpg. I had not been exactly flogging the vehicle, which consisted of significant variety of traffic-free expressway miles.

Like the modestly resculpted outside, the indoor take advantage of a series of rather refined upgrades. The ergonomics are a little rickety in the beginning, thanks to a seat that really feels either a tad expensive or a little too close to the pedals. Yet the cabin does feel fresher, more premium, much less oppressively plasticky.

If the Tacoma has your interest, but the $36,630 sticker label (including faux-beadlock wheels as well as various other goodies will enhance that even additional) is a stumbling block, remember that this is for the tricked-out TRD Off-Road variation. The base SR starts at $24,200, as well as the Limited begins at a lofty $38,720. In between those 2 extremes, I make certain you can set up the Tacoma of your desires.
