Welcome to Camelback Toyota's Tacoma Review
Make every weekend memorable with the redesigned Toyota Tacoma! It's ready for action with a high-strength steel frame that provides confident all-terrain performance, as well as other ride-enhancing features like trailer-sway control, new transmissions and a Multi-Terrain Select system on TRD Off Road models.
If you're shopping for a midsize pickup truck, purchasing a 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Phoenix is a great choice. With its enhanced performance and a higher ground clearance and raised suspension on more of its models, Tacoma has no problem tackling the back roads and rocky paths of Arizona's many great national parks and hiking trails. Edmunds.com's 2016 Toyota Tacoma review adds that the truck's new 3.5-liter V6 engine and updated transmissions also make it an even more desirable option.
Getting down to details, the lineup is offered in five trim levels: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off Road and Limited. Entry-level trims come standard with a rearview camera, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, full power accessories, a cargo bed rail system and a new-this-year GoPro mount. On upper trims, more premium and performance features are added to the pot, such as a sunroof, Qi wireless phone charging, Bilstein shock absorbers and an electronic locking rear differential.
When choosing a 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Phoenix, you'll have the option of a 2.7-liter four-cylinder or the new 3.5-liter V6, which replaces the previous 4.0-liter V6. Does the new six-cylinder offer less power? Nope. Thanks to its advanced engineering, the 3.5-liter actually delivers much greater power: 278 hp and 265 pound-feet of torque to be exact. Other powertrain options include a choice of RWD and 4WD, as well as three different transmissions including a six-speed automatic and six- or five-speed manual.
In addition to its versatility, performance and features, any 2016 Toyota Tacoma review will also tell you that the truck hits high marks in terms of safety. Along with numerous airbags, antilock brakes with brake assist, and traction and stability control, technologies like blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and other driver-assist systems are offered on select trim levels.
