With the Tacoma name going back to 1995, and underlying platform lineage dating back to the late ’60s, it’s obvious that the 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes down from a long line of effective trucks. The Toyota Tacoma never ever really goes through many changes in between generations, and this has actually proven real considering that the third-gen model debuted in 2016. Now, as we near 2019, the Tacoma’s lineup is entering into focus, and while we anticipate the entire of the pickup to stay unchanged, it will get a revamped TRD Pro model.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Design
Visually, we anticipate the majority of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma to remain unchanged inside and out. The TRD Pro, nevertheless, will get a few updates. These consist of an extra inch of lift, LED fog lights, a new-look “TOYOTA” grille, a hood scoop, “TRD Pro” marking on the bed, black-chrome exhaust tips, and 18-inch BBS aluminum wheels.
When it concerns the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro, expect an even beefier truck than ever before. Brand-new devices includes Fox off-road shocks with TRD springs, in addition to special accents contributed to both the interior and exterior. By far the coolest feature of the new TRD Pro Tacoma is the readily available TRD Desert Air Intake, due to the fact that absolutely nothing indicates organisation when it comes to off-roading quite like a snorkel. Toyota declares this choice helps the 2019 Tacoma breathe cleaner air in off-road environments, though there is no official word on if the snorkel assists the new Tacoma to ford small bodies of water, or if that action will void the 3-year/36,000- mile service warranty.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Engine
Under the hood, we anticipate everything to stay unchanged, so try to find its base engine to stay the reliable 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 159 horse power. Optionally, purchasers can go with a 278-hp 3.5-liter V6. Transmission options consist of a six-speed handbook or a six-speed automated. The TRD Pro’s powertrain gains a brand-new Desert Air Intake, which repositions the consumption below the windscreen where there’s less dust and particles.
While most of the Tacoma’s mechanical components stay the very same, the TRD Pro gets a couple of under-the-skin updates, like new 2.5-inch Fox front shocks with 46 mm pistons and 8 bypass zones. The front suspension likewise gets a brand-new set of springs that provide it an additional inch of lift and a bigger front sway bar.
The current Tacoma performs well in IIHS crash tests, as it has “Good” scores in all the significant crash tests. However it falls short of being a Top Safety Pick due to its absence of automated emergency braking and its “Marginal” headlight test outcomes. We anticipate this to stay the exact same in 2019.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no concrete release date, we do expect to see the 2019 Tacoma at some point in the fall of 2018. Main prices needs to be similar to the 2018 model, which varies from $26,195 to $44,515 (destination fees consisted of). Competitors will include the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Nissan Frontier.
