Toyota Set To Unveil 2016 Tacoma at Detroit Show
|   Friday, January 09, 2015
For 10 years, Toyota has relied on an essentially unchanged Tacoma to maintain its dominance in the mid-sized pickup market. That changed this year with the debut of the mid-sized Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon by General Motors.

Already the winner of Motor Trend's prestigious "Truck of the Year" award, the GM twins sport up-to-date styling and a host of state-of-the-art refinements, as well as up-to-date standard equipment.

To maintain its edge, says USA Today, Toyota will have to introduce a new Tacoma with beefier styling and a thoroughly modernized drivetrain.
Tacoma's have long been known for the offroadability but its reawakened competitor has one-upped the world's number one automaker with its updated twins.

Toyota is remaining understandably tight-lipped about its precise plans for the Tacoma, apparently preferring to wait until its Monday press conference to detail them, however, speculation is rampant that the new Tacoma will feature a brand-new V-6 engine and driveline.

Toyota has chosen the Detroit venue to brief the automotive press about its plans for the veteran Tacoma. Observers believe that Toyota is now being pressed by its competition and has had to make swift, major changes to its Tacoma to compete. The Tacoma has run its course as its design and features have remained essentially unchanged for a decade. It is now running hard to play catch-up.
