The Japanese manufacturer intends to give this truck a decent makeover with the much-awaited 2019 Toyota Tacoma model. The third generation Tacoma version premiered in 2015, but it failed to impress most of its buyers. Although it is a relatively new model having made debut recently, it is not as efficient or robust as most of us would probably expect.
Moreover, this 3rd generation Tacoma leverages most of the underpinning of its immediate predecessor. Hence, it isn’t as capable or competent to drive as most of its competitors from Chevrolet. Toyota has tried to solve the complaints that buyers raised in the previous model, and we should expect many design overhauls in the next Tacoma version.
2019 Toyota Tacoma – Stylish Exterior and Interior
The 2019 Toyota Tacoma undoubtedly conveys a slightly condensed body and form. The company has also used all-natural aluminum as well as steel and various other smooth materials in building the revised Tacoma. The cabin space presents a comprehensive makeover with regard to materials, colors and lighting system.
This time, the cabin and hood have been elevated to give more room to the drivetrain. The front bumper, front grille, and lights will relatively remain unaltered, but they all feature slightly moderated lines and decoration. We can also see that plastic protection and chromatic lines appear to surround the grille. The rear end will mostly remain the same but with the inclusion of new skid plates. The company has once again utilized LED technology for all lighting system to make a positive mark on the inbound edition.
The entire vehicle is better as it introduces dozens of abilities, including navigation along with the infotainment system. The most remarkable aspect of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is the inclusion of new infomercial system.
The revised Tacoma comes with a comprehensive array of features, which cover buyers with different budgetary allocations. Toyota has given the instrument panel and infotainment system a decent makeover. It becomes Toyota’s first medium-size truck to get an entirely digital cluster that offers a significant amount of information to the chauffeur. This system covers things like CarPlay and Android Auto among other unique hardware and software offerings.
2019 Toyota Tacoma – Engine and Type of Transmission
Unofficial reports have it that the base version of the revised 2019 Toyota Tacoma gets its power from a naturally-aspirated 2.7-liter I-4 engine, which also powers the immediate predecessor. This engine is said to be good for up to 160 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque.
Another report on engine specs suggests that the top-tier variant of the revised Tacoma gets a 3.5-liter V6 drivetrain. This power-house can yield approximately 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
The increase in power makes it possible for the restructured Tacoma to tow more than the outbound model while supplying a more useful torque-curve. These two engines are likely to be hooked to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
2019 Toyota Tacoma – MSRP and Arrival

As per some data and speculations, the newly remodeled Toyota Tacoma could debut in Japan sometime next year.
