Since the current generation of the Toyota Tacoma was updated in 2015, the fans have been eagerly waiting to hear some news and see some improvements. Well, they should be satisfied now because the 2019 Toyota Tacoma has been on its way to hit the market as even more powerful truck ready for your off-road adventure as well as working conditions.
The next-generation of Toyota Tacoma is going to bring the well-known exterior design that will only undergo some minor refreshments and updates. The truck will pretty much resemble its predecessor and it will probably be using the same old chassis, but the information about the platform has not been confirmed yet. We can only say that this model will be using a combination of lightweight aluminum, high-strength steel and some other smooth materials in its body construction. Its appearance might remain mostly unchanged, but there it will still have to get some innovations since the diesel version needs more cooling for its engine than the petroleum version. So, there is a possibility of adding a hood scoop or a larger grille in the front bumper. The 2019 Tacoma will also be standing on a new set of better off-road wheels. The redesigned headlights will be using the latest LED technology. As far as we have been informed, Toyota might release its Tacoma TRD Pro version as well that will definitely acquire a bit sportier and more aggressive appearance.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma will be mostly based on the one seen inside the current model. When it comes to innovations, you should probably expect some new interior color combinations as well as the use of better-quality materials. Technology inside the new Tacoma will also be upgraded and this model will offer the brand-new infotainment system with numerous options and connectivity features. We expect this model to provide a comfortable and spacious cabin that will help you enjoy your ride whatever terrain you face with.
More than one option has been considered when it comes to engine of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma. The first one includes a 2.7-liter naturally aspirated inline-four that will be able to deliver 170 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The other could come with a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the diesel version will use a 2.8-liter turbocharged inline-four that will hit 170 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The engines of the new Tacoma will probably be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission as standard.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma should be expected to happen by the late 2018, but this model might make its debut around the International North American Auto Show in January. The price of the base model has been estimated at $22,000, but it could go up to $30,000 for the TRD Pro version.
