2008 toyota Tacoma V6

2008 toyota Tacoma V6: Among the most resilient, dependable and capable trucks on the planet gets updated. The Tacoma has always sported a very broad stance and occurred with a hard, flashy picture. The new Taco gets a somewhat a lot more chiseled-looking confront with a meaningful chrome hex grille, and also a set of brilliant LED running lights that get your focus as it comes toward you.

The general bundle looks more hostile and also more muscular to me. An information that I truly liked-- the new stamped "Tacoma" logo design on the tailgate and the LED brake lights flanking it. My evaluation sample had black fender flares, TRD decals and 16-inch TRD wheels fitted with large 265-70-sized boots.

The truck got a great deal of appearances, specifically from drivers of older Tacomas. Obviously, the inferno orange paint possibly assisted amass some focus too.

2016 Toyota Tacoma V6 Access Cab 4×4 Test Drive


Once you've conquered the Tacoma's high step-in height as well as plop yourself into the comfortable warmed sport seats, you'll notice that the Tacoma's car-like driving setting stays the very same, with the vehicle driver sticking his legs and feet towards the front instead of the sitting-on-a-chair sensation you'll get in many vehicles.

Materials are almost all tough plastics, with a number of rubbery inserts on the dashboard in front of the traveler seat and also on the door panels. I liked the body-coloured trim items, which brightened points up a little. Toyota's excellent 7-inch touchscreen (which deals with the common stuff consisting of the navigating system) and also a dual-zone automated climate control system take up a lot of the dashboard room.

In this trim, the Tacoma has relatively limited motorist assistance modern technology-- a back-up video camera, the wise vital system and a push-button starter is all you obtain.

Back Seats

Below you will certainly locate a set of jump seats that, luckily, fold as well as out of the way. The headrests also fold up down so they're not obstructing your rear sight. As well as this is where those seats and also headrests belong.

To state the access cab seats 2 people, which Toyota insurance claims, is misleading. Perhaps amputees or mannerly (as well as small) pet dogs. However not whole individuals. Nope. My children (only 2 of them fit, undoubtedly) felt totally constrained back there and hated driving in it. The two I took with are 5 and also 8 years old. As well as not large. I did dedicate to trying it out myself-- so do not state I don't do anything for you. With the pole position all the way onward, I had the ability to squeeze myself right into the rear seats, jamming my knees versus the back of the pole position. That was, could I advise you, right onward as well as thus, completely pointless for many motorists. Not just was I crushed, but I was resting on entirely flat, means as well reduced seat cushions that are method too hard, as well as my back was totally upright as well as upright against exactly what hardly qualifies as a seat-back. And also my head was touching the roof covering.

If the CIA wanted to compel an admission from a person and also they just weren't fracturing under pressure, I would certainly claim put the in the back of the Tacoma's Accessibility taxicab as well as drive them to the closest 7-11. By the time you have actually gotten to Slurpee Paradise, that bird will be singing all their state keys just to be let out of that dungeon. Have I made it clear that the back seats draw?

Now with that said said, when they're folded up and also out of the way, there's a lot of room back there to put your stuff (including some useful floor containers) as well as I found that convenient. Besides having to open up that unusual half-door after you open your front door. I can not think of why anyone would opt for the accessibility taxi, directly, however hey, that's simply me.


As I 'd get out of a well thought out vehicle, there are lots of areas to place your stuff. Terrific door bins, an useful glove area, an open bin under the centre stack and also a large grassy container (with a 12V plug) under the armrest lid make for a very storage-friendly cabin.

Obviously, the 6-foot cargo bed is the truck's actual storage space service. I loved the detachable, locking tail gate with the Easy Lower performance, which gradually and also softly goes down the tail gate down once you've unlatched it. In terms of performance, the Tacoma's box is well considered. It comes with tie-downs in the cargo bed, as well as four tie-down cleats that can be moved along the deck rail system for infinite positioning possibilities-- and also a ton of adaptability. As well as the 400W 120V household plug (which is switchable from inside) and also a few in-bed storage space areas. You could throw 1150 lb (520 kg) well worth of haul therein.

Under the Hood

There's a new-to-the-Tacoma 3.5-litre V6, operating on the lean Atkinson cycle, encouraging points. It produces 278 HP at 6000 RPM and 265 lb.ft of torque at 4600 RPM and obtains paired to a 6-speed automatic. And naturally a proper part-time, on-demand 4 × 4 system with a 2-speed transfer situation.

Fuel economy is good for a truck-- Toyota ranks it at 13.1 L/100 km (18 United States mpg) in the city and also 10.5 L/100 kilometres (22 US mpg) on the highway. I averaged an outstanding 12.9 L/100 kilometres (18 United States mpg) which definitely blew my previous Tacoma experiences (where I got somewhere around a ridiculously terrible 19 L/100 km) out of the water.

The Drive

The push-button ignition fires up the V6 with a loud whoosh. Trucks aren't generally this light-- in this trim, the Tacoma pointers the ranges at 4225 lb (1916 kg)-- and so Toyota has the ability to make this one handle well. I would certainly presume regarding state this is the best-handling truck on the market-- it was really type of enjoyable to drive, something that trucks generally aren't. As well as it has a lot of power off the line, so there's no lack of pull around town. There is an interesting capability here that I have not seen before. You'll locate an "ECT Power" button, which nobody seems to understand. Even the user handbook is really ambiguous. After some research, I discovered that it beats the Tacoma's typical transmission programs which is a limitless look for the most effective gas economic climate. It alters the throttle reaction and shift factors, permitting you to get more from your Taco's powertrain. Naturally that will come with the expense of some mileage, but just what are a couple of litres of gas in between pals, right? It is an excellent method to boost your driving experience in the mountains or while towing.

Sport setting for the transmission that isn't really very transformative, and also does not make things any more flashy-- it simply hangs on to equipments a bit longer from what I could tell. You can shift equipments manually. As you may anticipate, the changes are sluggish, however this works when off-roading.

The Tacoma doesn't simply manage well-- it rides actually perfectly! Exactly what a pleasurable surprise to get into a truck that trips nearly like a car over most surface areas.

When you step on it, the V6 makes a great deal of sound, but or else, the Tacoma has actually become surprisingly peaceful, also at freeway rates. With that said claimed, the Firestone Winterforce tires my evaluation vehicle was equipped with need to be the loudest tires I have actually ever driven with. The roadway sound is crazy. On the highway at regarding 80 km/h, we could not even hear ourselves speaking, never mind thinking. I cannot visualize any individual purchasing those tires and also maintaining them. Obviously, that's not a knock against the vehicle itself.

If you're pulling things, you'll like the Taco's 6500 lb (2950 kg) lugging capability. It includes a trailer hitch (with a 7-pin wire harness) and trailer persuade control.

The Verdict

The 2016 Tacoma is absolutely a renovation on a vehicle that didn't have much to prove. It's already a tale, as well as Toyota has improved many elements.

WAF (Wife Approval Factor) was low, as she's not a large truck fan. Yet she's about as away from this car's designated group as it can be.

If you're seeking a little truck, the Tacoma stays the champ. It provides on everything it promises to do. It stays highly skilled and capable. It should be extremely reliable, and need to keep dizzying resale worth. Just don't obtain that silly Gain access to Taxicab.
