2016 Toyota Tacoma Review

The new Tacoma is just another successful heritage of the known model. This one will be tougher, ready to take over every kind of surface. Some say that it is becoming a true legend of the auto-world. These trucks have explored every corner of the world, conquered every kind of terrain and brought people together.


2016 Toyota Tacoma review

A rugged outside that promises a great ride for wherever you are headed. besides the already trademark Toyota grille, strong multi-reflector halogen headlights with improved technology, there is a 115V outlet on the car, that we find very handy. What not handy is, is the fact that the outlet is not found on every trim, only on TRD Off-Road or Sport package. This manly car is carried on 19-inch wheels, that are suitable for every weather condition. As for the safety and security, the car has a Star Safety System, that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock brake system (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Top Technology (SST).

Interior of 2016 Toyota Tacoma

With the upgraded interior, this car will always stand out. Floor mats wear the Tacoma logo proudly and the leather-wrapped TRD Pro shift knob will help keep things comfortable when the trails get rough. There are also some advanced features like Entune App Suite to help you stay connected wherever you go. As for the technology part of the vehicle, Toyota has also there something to brag about. Entune Premium Audio has Navigation and App Suite with a 6.1-inch high-resolution touch-screen. Not only does 2015 Toyota Tacoma clearly show you the way, it also gives you hands-free phone capability and lets you select music with just a touch of the screen.
