Toyota Tacoma (2016)
2016 Toyota Tacoma is powered by a new V6 engine mated with innovative transmission and improved suspension. This is the most powerful and fuel efficient Tacoma ever created by Toyota. The first engine option is the 2.7-liter DOHC four-cylinder with VVT-i. It generates 159 horsepower (117 kW) and 244 Nm (180 lb.-ft.) of torque at 4000 rpm. For added performance, Tacoma can be equipped with the new V6 with a segment-first 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle with VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing with Intelligent Wider Intake) fitted with Toyota’s D-4S technology, featuring both direct and port fuel injection. The new V6 produces 278 horsepower (204 kW) and 359 Nm (265 lb.-ft.) of torque at 4600 rpm. Both engines are liked to the six-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift delivering quick and easy shifting. The V6 can also be mated to a new six-speed manual transmission and the four-cylinder to a five-speed manual. When equipped with the V6 Tow Package, the new Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 lbs.
