With the Tacoma name going back to 1995, and underlying platform lineage going back to the late ’60s, it’s obvious that the 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes down from a long line of successful trucks. The Toyota Tacoma never ever truly goes through many changes in between generations, and this has actually proven real because the third-gen model debuted in 2016. Now, as we near 2019, the Tacoma’s lineup is coming into focus, and while we anticipate the whole of the pickup to remain the same, it will get a revamped TRD Pro model.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Design
Aesthetically, we expect most of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma to stay unchanged inside and out. The TRD Pro, however, will get a couple of updates. These include an additional inch of lift, LED fog lights, a new-look “TOYOTA” grille, a hood scoop, “TRD Pro” marking on the bed, black-chrome exhaust pointers, and 18-inch BBS aluminum wheels.
When it concerns the 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro, anticipate an even beefier truck than ever before. New equipment includes Fox off-road shocks with TRD springs, as well as special accents contributed to both the exterior and interior. Without a doubt the coolest feature of the new TRD Pro Tacoma is the available TRD Desert Air Intake, because absolutely nothing implies organisation when it comes to off-roading quite like a snorkel. Toyota declares this option assists the 2019 Tacoma breathe cleaner air in off-road environments, though there is no official word on if the snorkel helps the brand-new Tacoma to ford little bodies of water, or if that action will void the 3-year/36,000- mile guarantee.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Engine
Under the hood, we anticipate whatever to remain the same, so look for its base engine to stay the reliable 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 159 horsepower. Optionally, purchasers can opt for a 278-hp 3.5-liter V6. Transmission choices include a six-speed handbook or a six-speed automatic. The TRD Pro’s powertrain gains a brand-new Desert Air Intake, which rearranges the intake listed below the windscreen where there’s less dust and debris.
While the majority of the Tacoma’s mechanical components stay the very same, the TRD Pro gets a couple of under-the-skin updates, fresh 2.5-inch Fox front shocks with 46 mm pistons and 8 bypass zones. The front suspension likewise gains a brand-new set of springs that give it an additional inch of lift and a larger front sway bar.
The present Tacoma performs well in IIHS crash tests, as it has “Good” scores in all the significant crash tests. However it disappoints being a Top Safety Pick due to its absence of automated emergency braking and its “Marginal” headlight test results. We expect this to remain the same in 2019.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no concrete release date, we do expect to see the 2019 Tacoma sometime in the fall of 2018. Official rates needs to be similar to the 2018 model, which varies from $26,195 to $44,515 (destination fees included). Competitors will include the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Nissan Frontier.
