    Toyota revealed its 2016 Tacoma back in January, but beyond its redesigned body, information about the midsize truck has been limited.

    Thanks to a leaked document that was published on Tacoma World’s forums, however, pricing information has become available. Not only do we now have a price range, we can see that Toyota has trimmed the, uh, trims for the 2016 model year. Most notably, the single cab Tacoma is not listed, nor is the TRD Pro variant (though TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road versions are listed).

    On the other end of the spectrum, the most expensive Tacoma version will be the Limited, which comes with a V6, four-wheel drive, and a $39,375 price tag. Expect the burlier TRD Pro to return sometime in the future with a bigger price tag, but for now, the Limited wears that crown. Keep in mind that these prices don’t include destination and delivery, which costs an additional $885 on the 2015 models.

    The documents also reveal that Toyota must sell 30% of its Tacomas with a bed-cover to meet CAFE requirements. Apparently, the fuel economy ratings are different enough with the cover that Toyota wants to advertise them, and the only way to do that is if less than 1/3 of its 2016 Tacoma models are sold with the accessory. It will cost $650 on most versions, but is included on Limited and TRD models with the Premium and Tech package.

    The 2016 Tacoma is distinguished from the current generation by its reinforced frame for better rigidity, redesigned interior and exterior, updated infotainment system, new 3.5-liter V6, LED running lights, a wireless phone charging pad, and new safety features.

    I just can't ever see myself going back to a taco after getting spoiled with the power and interior size of my tundra. Especially not for 39k.

    A very used one that didn't cost much so you could spend money where it counts! Hell I've thought about getting a Suzuki samurai... Small enough to get places and just awesome

    Ok, one more... Both the long wheel base btw

    Yea it would need to be the long wheel base ones. I'd go 1st gen tacoma or 1st gen V8 tundra.


    The 2016 Tacoma looks interesting. I'd like to see a lifted one in person. 3.5L instead of a 4.0. Can't remember, what is the HP comparison? Or has that not come out yet?

    I think it's 270(?) now opposed to the 235 with the 4.0

    And the new Taco is Butt Ugly in my opinion....hate the grill! From what I've heard the engine is more of a "car" type...more hp but less torque than the 4.0...guess if one wants a mall cruiser it would be OK....glad I got mine when I did.

    What cool is that the new V-6 is an Atkinson cycle engine incorporating both direct and port fuel injection with VVTi for added
    New V6 Engine is Atkinson cycle, utilizing direct and port injection in combo with VVTi ( which has nothing to do with 5.7L AIP issue, Kalifornica Air Quality Board requirement which Toyota installed on all 2nd gen Tundras to save a few $$$$. Look it up.

    From the interior pic, it looks like they finally put the damned cruise control buttons up on the steering wheel where they belong. I don't know about the '14+ Tundras, but my '13 has the exact same crappy setup as my '11 Taco had with them on a short stalk behind the wheel. Living in the sticks, I use the cruise nearly every time I leave the house and I've hated this setup for the past four years.

    My 15 Tundra still uses the little stick but the wheel has the audio on the left with the phone and display on the right.

    That looks good... You know how everyone thought the 2015 tundra front end looked dumb and now with it color matched I think it's mean and bad ass looking. I bet People, including myself, will start to like the new Tacoma front end. Still wouldn't give 40k though...

    The short beds look like crap on the tundras too. Looks like a bubbled up bug with its ass smashed in.

    Sounds like something a guy that fvcked up and bought a double cab would say... Or doesn't own a tundra at all?

    The front one is what really drives me crazy. Just not a good transition to the doors.
