Toyota Tacoma 2019 Redesign

According to some questionably reliable internet sources, the word truck was. derived from the Latin trochlea, which is a structure in the knee that, do you know. what, whatever. This is the Toyota Tacoma, and wherever the word came from trucks. are good. This one is no exception. Unlike sport utility vehicles which err on the side of not being fully utilized,. trucks are purpose-built vehicles that their owners generally use as intended. Toyota has a long history of making durable affordable trucks and this. third-generation Tacoma excellently fulfills that promise. It’s practical and. versatile with myriad configuration options. Short- or long-bed, regular or. double cab, two- or four-wheel drive, with two available engine options. The first. of those is a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine, but if it were me buying this I’d. go for the 3.5-liter V-6 which is the direct injection Atkinson Cycle engine. It makes excellent power, which comes in handy when you’re towing the up to 6,800. pounds or hauling the 1,275-pound. payload. A properly equipped Tacoma can haul one of the best features available. on the Tacoma is transmission choice. Ford and Chevy don’t even offer a manual. anymore, and the other paltry stick shifts out there are usually only. available on stripped-down four-cylinder based models, but Toyota knows their. customers and offers the six-speed manual transmission as an option on all. three of the more sport focused TRD model. The TRD Sport like this one I’m. driving the TRD Off-Road and the TRD Pro for the base SR, SR5 and higher Limited. trims. The six-speed automatic is your only option. There aren’t a lot of frills on this truck even on the TRD Sport and I’m. actually ok with that. Outside it’s good-looking has some rugged angles. I. particularly like the way the front end of Toyota trucks look. They’ve got some. authority. The interior is simple but it has everything that you need including the. electronic transfer case that will get you into low gear when you’re heading. off-road. Yes, there is the requisite hard plastic but you know there are some. interesting materials in here. This fabric that’s both here and on the door. panels. It seems like it would be really durable. Also, it feels kind of neat and I. kind of would take a backpack made out of it. Gauges are big and easy to see and. on the center stack the buttons and knobs are well positioned and within. reach. While there’s not a ton of room in the. cabin, especially for passengers back here. There is some interesting storage. space. No it will not hold a bucket of fried chicken like the Silverado but the. center console is not bad, and hmm very creative. Nothing illegal please. Toyota does offer up option packages that include extras like keyless entry,. wireless charging, a backup camera, leather-trimmed seats, an optional. seven-inch touchscreen instead of the standard 6.1-inch one as well as. Toyota’s Intune infotainment system with navigation, and other apps, so while. Toyota has an integrated Apple CarPlay into some of their vehicles and. according to the company are entertaining the idea of Android Auto. there is nary a whisper of either one of them in this truck. I might be getting. addicted to it and need an intervention. EPA estimates aren’t groundbreaking, but hey, it’s a truck hey another theory on. its name origin incidentally is from the word truckle, which is an old wheel and. pulley system. Nope, still don’t care. I’m not gonna lie on the road the rides not. super smooth, but it’s well mannered and doesn’t feel really heavy or cumbersome. even with the TRD tuned Off-Road suspension. A note to modifiers though if. you start putting bigger knobby or altering tires on this the ride is going. to get a lot rougher. The steering doesn’t have great feel but it’s not as imprecise as on some heavier. trucks. I don’t feel like I’m sig zagging all over the road, but I do hear a lot of. that road noise inside the cabin. Again trucks off-road though the Tacoma TRD. Off-Road and TRD Pro are your best options for serious wheeling. Their. beefy shocks smooth out bumps and are both equipped with a locking rear. differential, durable plastic fenders, crawl control, and multi-terrain select,. and if that’s not enough for those enthusiasts, out there there are. truckloads of aftermarket products specifically made for Toyotas that live. in dirt. I love that we got a manual. The throws on the gearbox are smooth. Man. this truck is really easy to drive, which is probably why it’s one of Toyota’s best. sellers and has excellent resale value. I might be biased, I probably am, but I. could drive this every day. Hey, I have a birthday coming up. The base two-wheel. drive model Tacoma SR has a starting price of about $26,500. including destination charges. While it may not be overflowing. with standard features it does come with skid plates over its four-cylinder mill. and front suspension, three USB chargers and hill start assist. Throw in Safety. Sense which is Toyota’s suite of safety features that come standard across all. trims and features things like pre- collision warnings, lane departure alerts,. and dynamic cruise control and that’s a pretty good package for the price. About. $10,000 more will get you the TRD Sport which lands somewhere in. the middle of the cost spectrum and is what I’d consider the sweet spot in. terms of capability features and great value. The top of the mountain TRD Pro. has some serious off-road extras like projector beam headlights, all-terrain. tires, the reinforced TRD skid plate, active traction control,and a TRD-tuned. off-road suspension with two and a half inch Fox internal bypass coil overs and. rear remote reservoir shocks, as well as extra safety features such as blind spot. warning and rear parking assist are available as additional option packages. The TRD Pro will cost you closer to $43,500 but still not a bad price for a. pretty capable truck in a world where you can now spend upwards of a hundred. grand for a gravel hauler. There aren’t a ton of other options in this segment. Smaller lighter trucks just aren’t abundant these days, but the Nissan. Frontier, Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are worthy adversaries. While. this third-generation truck might soon be ready for a mid-cycle refresh it’s. still good-looking. You can get it in tons of configurations. It can rock haul. a truck by any other name, well it’s definitely not a Tacoma.
