2019 Toyota Tacoma
With the Tacoma name dating back to 1995, and underlying platform lineage going back to the late ’60s, it’s no secret that the 2019 Toyota Tacoma descends from a long line of effective trucks.
The Toyota Tacoma never truly goes through very many changes in between generations, and this has actually proven true given that the third-gen model debuted in 2016. Now, as we near 2019, the Tacoma’s lineup is entering focus, and while we anticipate the whole of the pickup to remain the same, it will get a revamped TRD Pro model.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Design
Visually, we anticipate the majority of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma to stay unchanged inside and out. The TRD Pro, however, will get a couple of updates. These consist of an extra inch of lift, LED fog lights, a new-look “TOYOTA” grille, a hood scoop, “TRD Pro” marking on the bed, black-chrome exhaust suggestions, and 18-inch BBS aluminum wheels.
When it concerns the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro, anticipate an even beefier truck than ever before. New equipment consists of Fox off-road shocks with TRD springs, in addition to unique accents added to both the interior and exterior. By far the coolest feature of the new TRD Pro Tacoma is the offered TRD Desert Air Intake, due to the fact that nothing suggests organisation when it pertains to off-roading quite like a snorkel. Toyota claims this option helps the 2019 Tacoma breathe cleaner air in off-road environments, though there is no main word on if the snorkel helps the new Tacoma to ford little bodies of water, or if that action will void the 3-year/36,000- mile guarantee.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Engine
Under the hood, we expect whatever to remain the same, so try to find its base engine to stay the reliable 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 159 horsepower. Optionally, purchasers can go with a 278-hp 3.5-liter V6. Transmission alternatives consist of a six-speed handbook or a six-speed automated. The TRD Pro’s powertrain gains a new Desert Air Intake, which rearranges the intake listed below the windscreen where there’s less dust and debris.
While most of the Tacoma’s mechanical parts remain the very same, the TRD Pro gets a few under-the-skin updates, like new 2.5-inch Fox front shocks with 46 mm pistons and 8 bypass zones. The front suspension also gets a new set of springs that give it an additional inch of lift and a bigger front sway bar.
The current Tacoma carries out well in IIHS crash tests, as it has “Good” rankings in all the significant crash tests. However it disappoints being a Top Safety Pick due to its absence of automatic emergency situation braking and its “Marginal” headlight test outcomes. We anticipate this to remain the very same in 2019.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no concrete release date, we do anticipate to see the 2019 Tacoma sometime in the fall of 2018. Main rates should resemble the 2018 model, which varies from $26,195 to $44,515 (destination charges included). Competition will consist of the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Nissan Frontier.
