2023 Toyota Tacoma – The other body-on-frame offerings from Toyota will undergo major changes also which includes the Tacoma mid-size pickup. The Tacoma has already outsold American mid-sized trucks, such as those of Chevrolet Colorado and Ford Ranger The new generation’s enhancements will further its popularity.
2023 Toyota Tacoma Review
It is expected that the new Tacoma comes with Toyota’s latest body-on-frame platform called TNGA-F. It is the basis for the brand’s newly launched Tundra as well as be the foundation for the forthcoming Sequoia as well as 4Runner SUVs. The Tacoma is, just like the Tundra will likely replace the rear leaf-spring suspension with coil springs which should enhance the truck’s road manners. The closest rivals to it are Chevy and Ford still use the leaf spring setup.
As we can see in our artist’s drawing (above) of a TRD Pro model, we anticipate the Tacoma to draw inspiration from the design of the Tundra particularly about the grille and headlights, and taillights. The Tacoma will likely be available with extended-cab and crew-cab body styles, with a variety of lengths of bed.
Rumors suggest that the new Tacoma could have a turbocharged engine. an engine that must be more powerful than the 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 278 horsepower as well as 265 pounds-feet of torque. One possible candidate is the latest 2.4-liter engine that can produce 317 pound-feet of torque. It’s in the Lexus NX350. A hybrid variant of this engine might be in the works, too since Toyota has announced an electric version of the brand-new Tundra. Additionally, Toyota says it will offer an electric version of every model on its line-up by 2025. Automatic transmissions will be the norm, but we believe (and would like to think) we will see Toyota will provide a manual gearbox with the new Tacoma (#SavetheManuals).
Like the new Tundra Tacoma, the cabin will come with more than the previous model and will feature more luxurious materials all over. Expect a bigger screen that is larger than the current truck’s 8.0-inch touchscreen (the tundras is 14.0 inches) and a new digital gauge cluster, as well as Toyota’s latest infotainment system that comes equipped with standard connectivity via wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.
