2011 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab: If you're not feeling especially charitable, you could dismiss the "all new" 2016 Toyota Tacoma household (including this TRD Off-Road Double Cab) as bit more than moderate if comprehensive refresh. The designing is new, yet only just-- a variant on a style, not a clean-sheet change, and also in that sense, I suppose it approaches the ever-evolving Jeep Wrangler.

2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab review

The resemblances (to place it lightly) proceed under the skin. The wheelbase is identical, and total length is simply a couple of inches higher on the new vehicle. The bed is an inch deeper, however the very same size. And so forth.

On the other hand, you should acknowledge that Toyota had a very darn excellent vehicle to begin with in the outward bound Tacoma. Was it showing its age, especially compared with promising midsizers like the reborn Colorado and Canyon? Visually, perhaps, but the Tacoma's stout underpinnings needed refinement, not reinvention. There's a lot of advantage in the transformative approach.

The powertrain on this particular Tacoma TRD Off-Road is round of old-- a six-speed manual transmission-- as well as one shot of new-- a downsized 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6. Similar to the bigger, V8-powered Toyota Tundra, as well as the 2015 Tacoma before it, all of it plays together with fascinating, unanticipated level of smoothness. You 'd never ever recognize the engine is down half a liter, and there's a great deal of additional zest above the 3,500 rpm mark. The six-speed is really enjoyable to paddle via, and similar to the manual on the Wrangler, it seems like a good suitable for an enthusiast-oriented vehicle.

Normally, I really did not have the chance to take the TRD Off-Road off-road. Point is, I actually intend to see just how it manages itself off the sidewalk since I have actually invested time in the truck. I'll seek out possibilities to do so as soon as things warm up. As well as I did pack on the miles in comfort-- and also take on an absolutely horrible slog through the season's worst ice tornado to this day with confidence. The vehicle really did not even toss a traction control caution.

That's the day I uncovered one especially old-school facet of the Tacoma: its 4x4 system. Failing to remember to de-power the front wheels before transitioning from slushmaggedon to a dry, covered auto parking structure, I located the truck lugging, binding and-- to my shame-- delaying as I aimed to make a tight turn into a vehicle parking area. So you'll absolutely intend to switch it to 2WD, which you have to do by hand by means of a console-mounted dial, before on-pavement handling.

Well duh, you're about to tell me, probably in a disparaging email. This is standard 4WD stuff. True sufficient, however it's easy to obtain accustomed to the automated 4WD establishing located on an increasing variety of trucks (including the GMC Canyon). Critics will hold this versus the Tacoma, verifying that it lags the technological contour; fans will say this reinforces its hardcore off-road cred.

Of what it's worth, the fuel economy approximates appear optimistic. With restricted 4WD use, I returned 16.0 mpg. I had not been specifically flogging the vehicle, and that included substantial variety of traffic-free expressway miles.

Like the modestly resculpted outside, the interior take advantage of a series of rather refined upgrades. The comfort designs are a little wonky in the beginning, thanks to a seat that feels either a little bit too expensive or a little also near to the pedals. However the cabin does really feel fresher, much more superior, much less oppressively plasticky.

If the Tacoma has your interest, but the $36,630 sticker label (including faux-beadlock wheels and various other rewards will increase that also further) is a stumbling block, keep in mind that this is for the tricked-out TRD Off-Road version. The base SR begins at $24,200, and also the Minimal beginnings at a soaring $38,720. In between those 2 extremes, I make sure you could configure the Tacoma of your desires.
