Toyota Teases 2020 Tacoma Ahead of Chicago Debut

In an announcement that it revealed yesterday, Toyota has confirmed that it will be showcasing an all new version of its venerable Tacoma pickup truck at the Chicago Auto Show in February. The unveiling of the all new Tacoma comes at a key time in the model’s history, especially considering that the once dominant king of the mid-size truck segment now faces an all new field of contenders that aim to steal its sales throne from its wheel arches. Admittably, Toyota’s announcement lacks key details, but the company has released a lone darkened teaser image that showcases the front end of the all new Tacoma that is set against a sillouhetted mountain backdrop at dusk. The apperance of the all new Tacoma comes at a time when the best selling mid-size pickup truck on the market is facing a two pronged assault from both the recently unveiled Ford Ranger, as …

2016 Toyota TACOMA Goes Back to the Future + Previews Diesel Powertrain for USA

A few cool things going on with this 80s-chic 2016 Tacoma that Toyota created in partnership with Universal Pictures and the Back to the Future crew.  The 2016 update references Marty McFly’s date-night ride from Back to the Future II — with shockingly accurate results. The new Tacoma in custom 1985 flat black plus a variety of off-road goodies? A strong look, even what feels like 100 years on from the original Hilux. Celebrating BTTF day is fun and all, but there is a future-previewing Easter egg in the new Tacoma concept. And it lives in quite an auspicious place: right on the B-pillar badge area where the original model boasted its EFI tech. Electronic Fuel Injection for that Toyota truck has become a part-adkinson-cycle for the 2016 V6 engine, which improves fuel economy along with the power bump for the new model. Toyota Back to the Future trucks But …

2015 GMC Canyon All-Terrain – Article Updated 5.27.14 The Canyon All-Terrain took the stage last week with the GMC team at Road America for the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s Spring Rally – and it looks just as good in the flesh as it does in the previews!   The 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado are shaping up to be huge news in a stagnant segment: mid-size trucks. Compact trucks? Not a “thing” anymore. Everybody who is anybody is going mid-size. As the Toyota Tacoma grew in size markedly to match the (long-gone; not missed) Dodge Dakota in size, others are quickly following suit. The next Nissan Frontier is debating various diesel engine options for a big revision for the 2016 model year, and even Ford is internally debating reviving the Ranger model for US sales. But the real news in this segment? Buyers are terminally bored with the offerings. …

The 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado are shaping up to be huge news in a stagnant segment: mid-size trucks. Compact trucks? Not a “thing” anymore. Everybody who is anybody is going mid-size. As the Toyota Tacoma grew in size markedly to match the (long-gone; not missed) Dodge Dakota in size, others are quickly following suit. The next Nissan Frontier is debating various diesel engine options for a big revision for the 2016 model year, and even Ford is internally debating reviving the Ranger model for US sales. But the real news in this segment? Buyers are terminally bored with the offerings. Even the sales champ Tacoma struggles to bring much new flair to the table for 2015 — with the same engines and just a light infotainment refresh the only substantive changes since 2009 or before. But even while the truck-use package of all these mid-size models is generally …
