Yesterday, I was feeling a bit down about my 1979 Jeep Cherokee Golden Eagle after discovering that its engine is basically shot. But today I’m all cheered up, because my friend Jamie reminded me of what my Golden Eagle is not: a totally rotted out shitbox. Seriously, just looking at these pictures of a first-gen…
The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is like a Ford Raptor Lite—daily drivable pickup with strong off-road pretenses. The Taco’s just a little smaller. And slower. And not that much cheaper. But you can still get it with three pedals, so it’s hard to hate—and it’s going racing for real next year, in the desert.
AT Overland’s new Tacoma Habitat package looks like a really elegant solution for off-road camping comfort without the mass of a full-on RV.
Toyota sent their pro drivers Andy Bell and Ryan Millen to take the 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro to the western hemisphere’s northernmost road for some spectacular photo ops. The white truck can be hard to spot in the snow, but when you can see it, it’s quite a sight to behold.
About 310 trucks from the first batch of the new 2016 Toyota Tacomas are being recalled because the factory might have used the wrong bolts to attach an air bag module. That’s not a good look.
I’ve spent the day pawing through the 2016 Toyota Tacoma’s just-released specs, looking for something to celebrate or dump on or at least launch a disjointed rant over. Fuel economy is weak, but otherwise it seems like a decent truck for the money. Unless you buy the four-cylinder.
Toyota has left their Taco sitting on the counter since 2005, and it has gotten stale. Nobody wants to eat a crusty taco, but that’s all there’s been on the menu for the longest time. By default, those hungry for a mid-size truck have had no choice but to clog their noses and scarf down what Chef Toyota was cranking…
I’ve been forbidden from telling you anything about the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma. But what I can do is show you some USDA prime choice, grade A offroad goodness right here in this photo gallery.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma will still come with rear drum brakes, but its traction control tech has become a lot more advanced. Let’s watch the truck get buried to its axles in sand, and then activate “Crawl Control” and turn its tires into shovels for an easy self-recovery.
Documents that appear to have come from a dealer’s meeting lay out a pretty complete price and configuration list for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Check it out right here.
Want to know what thirty years of evolution looks like on the Toyota trucks timeline? This infographic breaks down the differences between the 1986 pickup we all love and the 2016 Toyota Tacoma we’re eagerly anticipating. The vehicles are actually... pretty similar.
Looks like somebody found a next-generation (2016?) Toyota Hilux hiding under a tarp and was kind enough to beam their pictures to the internet. Looks a bit less aggressive than our 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but it's unmistakably truck. What do you think?
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma has been dispatched to stop the company's mid-size truck market share from being lost to GM, who now offer many variations of a comparably sized pickup (the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon). Here's what we know about the new Taco before it bows in Detroit this month.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma will be completely redesigned from tip to tailgate. We've seen the rear is getting a little more chiseled to take after the bigger Tundra, now it seems the grille's gone trapezoidal and the headlights are getting tighter.
The 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is that washed up, loose-cannon-cop-on-the-edge pulled out of retirement for "one last job." Giving an old hero a shiny badge and a new gun always works on TV, but this truck isn't quite up to fighting its rivals anymore, on-road or off.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma has been promised as an "all-new" mid-sized truck to finally replace the current rendition we've lived with for almost a decade. From the one photo the company has released so far, the new Taco sure looks like its big stablemate the Tundra to me.
Toyota just issued a brake-related recall on the 2012 RAV4, 2012-2013 Tacoma, and 2012-2013 Lexus RX350. Looks like a buildup of oxide film in a brake actuator terminal can render Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, and ABS inoperative.
You might have heard that some automakers set up carnival-style attractions at the Chicago Auto Show. Toyota's was my favorite, on account of it had a see-saw you got to ride over in a truck. Skip the line and tag along with us on the three minute adventure at the TRDPro Display.
Toyota's TRDPro Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner trucks just strutted their stuff on Toyota's Chicago Auto Show test track. Despite rumors that this was going to be Toyota's truck to challenge Raptor, that "stuff" is basically a cool FJ40-style grille badge and a few small tweaks.
High school senior Emmanuel Williams and 24 other students were riding a school bus in Tacoma, Washington earlier this week, when the bus began to swerve ominously. Williams jumped up, found the driver nodding off and woke him up, preventing a tragedy on a busy interstate highway.
