2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab: If you're not really feeling especially charitable, you could reject the "all new" 2016 Toyota Tacoma household (including this TRD Off-Road Dual Cab) as little greater than light if detailed refresh. The styling is brand-new, yet only just-- a variant on a theme, not a clean-sheet transformation, as well as in that sense, I intend it's comparable to the ever-evolving Jeep Wrangler.

2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab review

The similarities (to place it lightly) continue under the skin. The wheelbase equals, and also total length is simply a couple of inches greater on the brand-new vehicle. The bed is an inch deeper, however the exact same size. And more.

On the other hand, you ought to acknowledge that Toyota had a rather darn great truck to begin with in the outward bound Tacoma. Was it showing its age, especially as compared to up-and-coming midsizers like the reborn Colorado as well as Canyon? Visually, maybe, however the Tacoma's stout bases required improvement, not reinvention. There's a lot of advantage in the evolutionary strategy.

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 scaled down 3.5-liter normally aspirated V6. As with the larger, V8-powered Toyota Expanse, and also the 2015 Tacoma before it, all of it plays together with wonderful, unanticipated smoothness. You 'd never know the engine is down half a liter, and also there's a great deal of added zest over the 3,500 rpm mark. The six-speed is really fun to row through, and also just like the handbook on the Wrangler, it seems like an excellent fit for an enthusiast-oriented truck.

Naturally, I really did not have the opportunity to take the TRD Off-Road off-road. Point is, I actually intend to see just how it handles itself off the pavement now that I have actually spent some time in the truck. I'll choose possibilities to do so when things heat up. And also I did pack on the miles in comfort-- as well as take on a genuinely horrible slog via the season's worst ice tornado to date with self-confidence. The vehicle really did not even toss a grip control warning.

That's the day I found one especially old-school facet of the Tacoma: its 4x4 system. Neglecting to de-power the front wheels prior to transitioning from slushmaggedon to a completely dry, covered car park structure, I located the truck hauling, binding and also-- to my embarrassment-- delaying as I aimed to make a tight transformed into a parking spot. So you'll definitely want to switch it to 2WD, which you have to do manually by means of a console-mounted dial, prior to on-pavement handling.

Well duh, you're about to tell me, most likely in an insulting email. This is basic 4WD stuff. True enough, yet it's easy to obtain accustomed to the automatic 4WD establishing located on a raising variety of trucks (consisting of the GMC Canyon). Detractors will hold this versus the Tacoma, showing that it's behind the technical contour; followers will state this strengthens its hardcore off-road cred.

Wherefore it deserves, the fuel economic situation estimates seem confident. With restricted 4WD usage, I returned 16.0 mpg. I wasn't exactly flogging the vehicle, which consisted of significant variety of traffic-free expressway miles.

Like the modestly resculpted outside, the indoor benefits from a series of somewhat refined upgrades. The ergonomics are a little wonky at first, thanks to a seat that feels either a little bit too expensive or a little too near the pedals. However the cabin does really feel fresher, extra superior, much less oppressively plasticky.

If the Tacoma has your rate of interest, but the $36,630 sticker (adding faux-beadlock wheels as well as various other goodies will certainly enhance that even additional) is a stumbling block, remember that this is for the tricked-out TRD Off-Road variation. The base SR beginnings at $24,200, as well as the Limited begins at a soaring $38,720. Between those 2 extremes, I make sure you can configure the Tacoma of your dreams.
