Its competitors from Chevrolet and GMC may have had a year’s head start, but the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is willing and eager to launch into the fray. And you can find it first at Mayfield Toyota in Edmonton.
The Scoop on the 2016 Toyota Tacoma
The new Tacoma starts with a choice of 2.7L four-cylinder or 3.5L V6 engines that promise to be class leaders in terms of power and fuel economy. Paired to these great engines is a six-speed automatic with electronic shift control, or for the true DIY-er, a six-speed manual with the V6.
The 2016 Tacoma’s tough new design not only looks great, but also hides a beefed-up frame that’s fortified with high-strength steel for greater rigidity. Even higher-grade steel is mixed into the body for reduced weight, resulting in improved performance and better economy. Plus a revised suspension not only makes the new Tacoma better to drive on the road, but more capable off-road as well.
Speaking of off-road capability, the new Tacoma aims to be your choice for when the going gets rough. A multi-terrain 4WD system enables the driver to optimize the 2016 Tacoma for various road conditions through a simple rotary knob. A low-speed “crawl mode”, limited-slip differential, and locking rear differential will also be available to enable the Tacoma to conquer any terrain. Toyota is so confident in their new mid-sized pickup’s off-road capabilities that a GoPro mount is included as standard so you can record your adventures.
Inside, the 2016 Tacoma offers a high-quality interior with premium features like push-button start, wireless charging for your smartphone, and a touchscreen with navigation and smartphone integration. High-tech features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert also make their way into the Tacoma to make it safer than ever.
And while the 2016 Tacoma may be brand-new, it carries over Toyota’s legendary reliability that has made it a household name for over 50 years. So if you’re looking for the toughest mid-sized pickup available, then come to Mayfield Toyota to find the 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
