Toyota Tacoma 2017
Given Toyota’s heritage performance and the current alignment of all-terrain models, the introduction of the Toyota Tacoma 2017 is not surprising.
As with the previous special Taco and current 4Runner and Tundra TRD Pro models, this new truck represents a concerted effort to increase off-road truck capacity. But do not be fooled. While fulfilling its mission, the redesign of the TRD is less complete, but less expensive, than that applied by Ford to create the beastly F-150 Raptor.
2017 Toyota Tacoma Exterior
Redesigned last year with a front panel and a more imposing bonnet line than before, the Toyota Tacoma 2017 is braver than ever, especially in TRD Off Road Pro or TRD. This is new for 2017 and combines a suspension of 1 inch, LED driving lamps and a large badge on the grille.
With Toyota TRD Pro functionality, grid block letters and black 16-inch wheels with the Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain, a number of other exterior details remind you that this is not a new generation of Tacoma. These include TRD Pro badges on the front doors and rear cover, a black hood and special LED fog lights.
2017 Toyota Tacoma Interior
Inside, the cabin has an horizontal panel design with more elegant materials and finishes than in the past.
While trucks have evolved in the comfort of the seat and driving position, it seems that the Toyota Tacoma 2017 does not have, and this represents a big obstacle to comfort.
The Tacoma front seats are short and flat and do not offer a lot of adjustment. Through alignment, the seats are elastic, the central issues of the foam put a lot of pressure on the bones sitting without the support of the thighs. Back support is almost the same.
However, the Tacoma has many great details. All models have a glass of the acoustic windshield, while the cabin itself has a significant cushioning sound, which contributes to a feeling of refinement. The rear of the truck uses a rotating damper for smooth and controlled release when it opens. There is also a guardrail system (with movable slats) to provide moorings for small parts and heavy load, while there is a 120-volt outlet mounted on the deck at some trim levels.
A 2.7-liter four-cylinder 180 lb-ft of torque is the standard and is paired with a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The 3.5-liter V-6 (265 lb-ft) is optional and it is coupled with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. When assembled correctly, the V-6 can tow 6,800 pounds. For serious adventurers, a favorable TRD environment adds some looks and a heavy suspension changes.
Tacoma’s latest model will only be available as a 4×4 model off-road dual cabin with the smallest five-foot bed, with the power provided by the familiar 3.5-liter V8 278-horsepower.
