The all-new 2016 Tacoma delivers unwavering capability and the good looks to match. Chiseled character lines and muscular fenders help show off Tacoma’s strength, and an available hood scoop and aggressive grille hint at the power that lies under the hood. It’s attitude amplified, and it shows everyone that this off-road icon is ready to rock.
Let’s light it up. Available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) add extra safety and style to Tacoma’s legendary toughness, helping you see and be seen, day or night. Standard projector-beam headlights shine brightly, helping you get a better nighttime view of the road ahead.
It’s time to boost your off-road cred. The tailgate features an embossed Tacoma logo, letting everyone know that this truck was built to lead the pack.
Tacoma’s taillights were inspired by the hardworking C-clamp, and on TRD Off-Road and TRD Sport, they feature smoked-black housings for a bold touch. On Tacoma Limited, the taillights use clear lenses to add just the right amount of sophistication.
Tacoma is built to handle the demands of a hard-charging weekend. Its interior features soft-touch materials to boost your comfort. And Tacoma Limited adds new leather-trimmed seating surfaces for the ultimate in tough sophistication.
An available 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) helps you keep an eye on the information you want. Customize it to show your mpg, current song selection, individual tire pressure, available Multi-terrain Select setting and more.
Wild on the outside. Calm on the inside. Improvements to reduce outside noise have been put in all the right places, helping make Tacoma’s cabin quieter than ever. The cab-to-bed seal has been improved, and a new front chin spoiler and better aerodynamic performance help smooth out the airflow, so you’ll hear less wind noise too.
Summer heat. Winter chill. Bring it on. Tacoma offers available front dual zone automatic climate control. Now you and your passenger can stay comfortable no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.
Let’s bring the outdoors in. Tacoma’s available power moonroof opens up to give you everything from a cool breeze to an epic view of the stars.
Keys at the bottom of your gear bag? No problem. When you approach Tacoma with the available Smart Key fob in your pocket (or bag), you can unlock the doors by touching the driver-side door handle and start it up with just the push of a button on the dash.
Get ready to capture all the action. Tacoma comes standard with an integrated GoPro® mount on the windshield so you and your crew can relive all your favorite off-road adventures. GoPro® camera not included.
Considering all the gear you’re loading into your Tacoma, the last thing you need to worry about is finding a cable to charge your smartphone. Good thing Tacoma is available with Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging. Just place your Qi-compatible device on top of the nonslip surface to help keep it charged up and ready to go.
The available Entune™ Audio system lets you access your phone, apps, traffic and weather through its 7-in. touch-screen. Wirelessly stream your favorite playlist and crank it up through the available JBL® amplifier and premium speakers. And when it’s time to get back to the city, available Integrated Navigation is ready to help show you the way home.
When backing up on a trail—or just backing out of your driveway—you need to see what’s behind you. The standard backup camera mounted in Tacoma’s tailgate handle helps you see an image of what the camera detects behind you on the available 7-in. high-resolution display.
When Tacoma’s available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate outside mirror to alert you to the presence of the vehicle, helping you to determine when it's safe to change lanes. And when you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) provides an audible indicator to warn you of approaching vehicles.
New high-strength steel is used in the construction of every 2016 Tacoma, helping ensure it delivers the toughness you expect. Stronger and lighter than conventional steel, this hot-stamped high-strength alloy helps optimize safety and performance.
High tech meets high performance. Tacoma’s available Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V6 with direct injection is all-new and gives you more of everything you want. It’s got more power, with 278 hp and 265 lb.-ft. of torque at 4600 rpm, so you’ve got the muscle you need to tow, haul and run the dunes. And it’s designed to be more efficient so you can get better mpg too.
Two new transmissions help Tacoma deliver better performance and fuel economy. An all-new smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard. And for those who like to control their own gears, the 6-speed manual has been upgraded for an improved shift feel to add more fun to your drive.
Dirt bikes. Side-by-sides. Whatever toys you’ve got, Tacoma’s got the power to bring ’em along. The powerful 3.5-liter V6 and available Tow Package help this truck tow up to 6800 lbs. or carry a payload of up to 1440 lbs. So strap it down, hitch it up and roll out—your ultimate weekend starts here.
Tacoma’s new three-piece rear bumper was designed for maximum durability and easier maintenance. The available 4-/7-pin connector has been relocated to inside the bumper itself, helping protect the wiring from exposure to weather and aggressive terrain.
When you’re towing, sometimes the wind kicks up or a load shifts, causing the trailer to sway. Included with Tacoma’s available Tow Package, Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) applies brake pressure at individual wheels and manages engine torque to help maintain control of the trailer.
When the trail gets challenging, Tacoma TRD Off-Road’s Crawl Control (CRAWL) is here to help you conquer your off-road adventure. This advanced system automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings so you can keep your focus on navigating across difficult terrain.
Tacoma TRD Off-Road features Multi-terrain Select. With five modes to choose from, this system helps regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and traction control. When combined with standard Goodyear Wrangler® tires with tough Kevlar® construction, Multi-terrain Select helps improve traction dramatically, meaning you can get back to the fun more quickly.
Tacoma’s Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) helps you safely get up those hills. This technology helps minimize Tacoma from rolling backward when you move your foot from the brake to the gas pedal, so you can move upward with confidence. (HAC not available on TRD Off-Road 4WD M/T.)
Don’t let a patch of knee-deep sand give you the slip. Tacoma TRD Off-Road’s standard electronically controlled locking rear differential distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels so they move at the same speed, providing more grip in low-traction conditions.
Tacoma gets a more compact, lighter and more efficient electronic shift transfer case for 2016. Easily switch between high-range 4WD, low-range 4WD or high-range 2WD with just the turn of a dial.
Don’t call it a bedliner. Tacoma’s bed is composed of an ultra-durable, fiber-reinforced Sheet-Molded Composite (SMC) surface. This rugged tech boasts a greater impact strength than steel and will help keep the bed of your Tacoma looking good for years to come. An available bed-mounted 120V/400W outlet helps keep the action powered up even when you’ve left civilization in your dust.
When the desert calls, you want to bring your gear along for the ride. That’s why Tacoma’s bed comes standard with an innovative Deck Rail System. With four heavy-duty adjustable tie-down cleats, you’ve got the strength and adjustability you need to keep your cargo securely strapped down.
This is functionality that works with you. The easy lower tailgate opens smoothly. You can easily remove it when you need to carry longer items, and lock it to help secure cargo concealed under the available hard tri-fold tonneau cover.
Just because your truck may always be covered in dirt doesn’t mean you can’t keep things neat and tidy. Tacoma’s in-bed storage compartment gives you a secure spot to stash things like tools, rags and sand-covered gear.
A lot of innovation went into designing Tacoma’s doors. New construction techniques and advanced high-strength steels are used to create a door that is stiffer, stronger and built with the toughness you expect. These doors are built to look good, and most importantly, help keep you and your passengers safer.
Our advanced Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) comes standard on every Tacoma. Designed to monitor tire pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become underinflated. TRD and Limited grades feature an individual tire location report via the 4.2-in. MID. It’s one more way Tacoma gives you peace of mind wherever the rubber meets the road.
Tacoma is available with rear parking assist sonar to help you quickly determine the distance between your truck and other vehicles or objects behind you. This tech provides real-time feedback using audible warning signals that change as you get closer to the obstacle.
Every Tacoma comes standard with our Star Safety System™, an advanced integration of safety technologies including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That's why we include a no cost maintenance plan with the purchase or lease of every new Tacoma for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for 2 years and unlimited miles.
