With the Tacoma name dating back to 1995, and underlying platform family tree going back to the late ’60s, it’s obvious that the 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes down from a long line of successful trucks.
The Toyota Tacoma never truly goes through very many changes between generations, and this has actually shown real because the third-gen design debuted in 2016. Now, as we near 2019, the Tacoma’s lineup is coming into focus, and while we expect the entire of the pickup to remain the same, it will get a revamped TRD Pro model.
Visually, we anticipate most 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 additional inch of lift, LED fog lights, a new-look “TOYOTA” grille, a hood scoop, “TRD Pro” stamping on the bed, black-chrome exhaust suggestions, and 18-inch BBS aluminum wheels.
When it comes to the 2019 Tacoma tacoma, anticipate an even beefier truck than ever before. New equipment consists of Fox off-road shocks with TRD springs, in addition to exclusive accents added to both the interior and exterior. Without a doubt the coolest function of the brand-new TRD Pro Tacoma is the offered TRD Desert Air Intake, due to the fact that nothing means organisation when it comes to off-roading quite like a snorkel. Toyota claims this alternative assists the 2019 Tacoma breathe cleaner air in off-road environments, though there is no main word on if the snorkel helps the brand-new Tacoma to ford little bodies of water, or if that action will void the 3-year/36,000- mile warranty.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Under the hood, we expect everything to remain unchanged, so search for its base engine to stay the tried-and-true 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 159 horse power. Optionally, buyers can opt for a 278-hp 3.5-liter V6. Transmission alternatives include a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The TRD Pro’s powertrain gets a new Desert Air Intake, which rearranges the consumption below the windshield where there’s less dust and particles.
While the majority of the Tacoma’s mechanical elements remain the exact 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 likewise gains a new set of springs that offer it an extra inch of lift and a larger front sway bar.
The present 2019 Toyota Tacoma carries out well in IIHS crash tests, as it has “Good” rankings in all the significant crash tests. But it falls short of being a Top Safety Pick due to its lack of automatic emergency braking and its “Marginal” headlight test results. We anticipate this to stay the same in 2019.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Though there is no concrete release date, we do anticipate to see the 2019 Tacoma sometime in the fall of 2018. Official pricing must resemble the 2018 design, which ranges from $26,195 to $44,515 (destination fees included). Competition will consist of the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Nissan Frontier.
