2010 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab: If you're not really feeling particularly generous, you can disregard the "all new" 2016 Toyota Tacoma family members (including this TRD Off-Road Double Cab) as bit greater than moderate if thorough refresh. The styling is brand-new, but only just-- a variation on a theme, not a clean-sheet change, as well as in that sense, I suppose it approaches the ever-evolving Jeep Wrangler.

2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab review

The resemblances (to put it lightly) continue under the skin. The wheelbase is identical, and also overall length is simply a few inches better on the new truck. The bed is an inch deeper, but the very same size. And so on.

On the other hand, you ought to acknowledge that Toyota had a rather darn good vehicle to start with in the outgoing Tacoma. Was it showing its age, specifically as compared to promising midsizers like the reborn Colorado and also Canyon? Aesthetically, maybe, but the Tacoma's stout underpinnings needed improvement, not reinvention. There's lots of advantage in the evolutionary approach.

The powertrain on this particular Tacoma TRD Off-Road is one shot of old-- a six-speed manual transmission-- as well as round of brand-new-- a scaled down 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6. As with the larger, V8-powered Toyota Tundra, and the 2015 Tacoma before it, everything plays along with wonderful, unforeseen smoothness. You 'd never ever understand the engine is down half a litre, and also there's a great deal of additional zest over the 3,500 rpm mark. The six-speed is in fact enjoyable to row via, as well as similar to the handbook on the Wrangler, it feels like a great suitable for an enthusiast-oriented truck.

Naturally, I really did not have the chance to take the TRD Off-Road off-road. Thing is, I actually intend to see just how it manages itself off the pavement now that I have actually invested time in the truck. I'll seek out chances to do so as soon as points warm up. And I did pack on the miles in comfort-- and also tackle an absolutely awful slog via the season's worst ice tornado to this day with confidence. The truck didn't so much as toss a traction control warning.

That's the day I discovered one significantly traditional element of the Tacoma: its four-wheel drive system. Neglecting to de-power the front wheels prior to transitioning from slushmaggedon to a completely dry, protected parking structure, I located the truck carrying, binding as well as-- to my shame-- stalling as I attempted to make a limited transformed into a car park place. So you'll absolutely intend to switch it to 2WD, which you have to do by hand via a console-mounted dial, prior to on-pavement maneuvering.

Well duh, you're about to tell me, possibly in a disparaging e-mail. This is basic 4WD things. Real sufficient, but it's simple to obtain accustomed to the automated 4WD setting found on a boosting number of trucks (consisting of the GMC Canyon). Critics will hold this versus the Tacoma, showing that it's behind the technological curve; fans will certainly state this boosts its hardcore off-road cred.

For what it's worth, the gas economy estimates seem hopeful. With limited 4WD use, I returned 16.0 mpg. I had not been precisely flogging the vehicle, and that consisted of considerable number of traffic-free expressway miles.

Like the decently resculpted exterior, the indoor take advantage of a series of rather refined upgrades. The comfort designs are a little wonky in the beginning, thanks to a seat that really feels either a little bit too high or a little too close to the pedals. However the cabin does really feel fresher, more superior, much less oppressively plasticky.

If the Tacoma has your rate of interest, but the $36,630 sticker (including faux-beadlock wheels and also various other rewards will improve that also more) is a stumbling block, remember that this is for the tricked-out TRD Off-Road variation. The base SR begins at $24,200, and the Limited beginnings at a lofty $38,720. Between those 2 extremes, I'm sure you can set up the Tacoma of your dreams.
