2011 toyota Tacoma Double Cab: If you're not really feeling particularly charitable, you might reject the "all new" 2016 Toyota Tacoma family (including this TRD Off-Road Double Cab) as little bit greater than moderate if extensive refresh. The styling is new, however only just-- a variant on a motif, not a clean-sheet revolution, as well as in that feeling, I intend it approaches the ever-evolving Jeep Wrangler.

2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab review

The resemblances (to place it gently) proceed under the skin. The wheelbase is identical, and also total size is just a few inches greater on the new vehicle. The bed is an inch deeper, yet the very same size. And so on.

On the other hand, you should recognize that Toyota had a rather darn great truck to start with in the outbound Tacoma. Was it revealing its age, particularly as compared to promising midsizers like the born-again Colorado and Canyon? Visually, perhaps, yet the Tacoma's stout underpinnings required improvement, not reinvention. There's lots of merit in the evolutionary approach.

The powertrain on this particular Tacoma TRD Off-Road is round of old-- a six-speed manual transmission-- as well as one shot of new-- a scaled down 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6. Similar to the bigger, V8-powered Toyota Tundra, and also the 2015 Tacoma before it, everything plays along with wonderful, unforeseen smoothness. You would certainly never understand the engine is down half a litre, and also there's a lot of added oomph over the 3,500 rpm mark. The six-speed is in fact enjoyable to row through, and also much like the guidebook on the Wrangler, it feels like a good suitable for an enthusiast-oriented vehicle.

Normally, I really did not have the chance to take the TRD Off-Road off-road. Thing is, I really want to see just how it manages itself off the sidewalk since I have actually invested some time in the truck. I'll choose opportunities to do so as soon as things warm up. And I did pack on the miles in comfort-- as well as take on an absolutely unpleasant slog with the period's worst ice tornado to date with confidence. The truck really did not even throw a grip control warning.

That's the day I discovered one notably traditional aspect of the Tacoma: its 4x4 system. Failing to remember to de-power the front wheels before transitioning from slushmaggedon to a dry, protected vehicle parking structure, I found the vehicle hauling, binding and-- to my humiliation-- stalling as I tried to make a limited become a car park place. So you'll certainly intend to change it to 2WD, which you should do by hand using a console-mounted dial, before on-pavement maneuvering.

Well duh, you're about to tell me, probably in an insulting e-mail. This is fundamental 4WD stuff. True enough, yet it's simple to obtain accustomed to the automated 4WD setting located on a boosting number of trucks (including the GMC Canyon). Detractors will hold this versus the Tacoma, verifying that it's behind the technical curve; fans will say this boosts its hardcore off-road cred.

For what it's worth, the fuel economic climate approximates appear hopeful. With limited 4WD use, I returned 16.0 mpg. I had not been precisely flogging the truck, and that included significant variety of traffic-free expressway miles.

Like the decently resculpted outside, the indoor take advantage of a series of somewhat subtle upgrades. The ergonomics are a little wonky in the beginning, thanks to a seat that really feels either a bit too expensive or a little too close to the pedals. Yet the cabin does feel fresher, much more exceptional, less oppressively plasticky.

If the Tacoma has your passion, but the $36,630 sticker label (adding faux-beadlock wheels and also various other rewards will improve that even additional) is a stumbling block, bear in mind that this is for the tricked-out TRD Off-Road version. The base SR begins at $24,200, and also the Restricted starts at a soaring $38,720. In between those 2 extremes, I'm sure you can configure the Tacoma of your dreams.
