The 2017 Toyota Tacoma redesign brings with it a boatload of refreshments and changes over the previous model. Some of this changes can be seen in terms of the V6 engine refinement, extensive list of options, a responsive infotainment system, excellent off-road mojo, and an impressive resale value. The Toyota Tacoma release date should be expected sometime before this fall.
Apparently, Toyota Tacoma has been one of the most desired vehicles in its class especially among the group of shoppers who feel regular full-size pickups are either burdensome or too pricey. Toyota has made several changes meant to burnish the appeal of the newest model. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma interior, for instance, is one area that the Japanese marque has offered extensive redesigns and technologies. New driver aides, too, have been added to the existing ones.
Things however remain unaltered beneath its hood. The most powerful mill is a 3.5L V6 that Toyota says is capable of generating a whopping 278 horsepower and 265 pounds-feet of torque. With this amount of power, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma towing capacity is nothing short of 6,800 pounds.
There is now doubt the Toyota Tacoma changes for 2017 will help better its rankings in its segment. But even so, there are other several foibles to keep in mind. The V6 acceleration time is unimpressive, and driver height adjustment is lacking. But despite this minimal shortfall in value, we’d say the redesigned Tacoma is well-positioned to retain its thrown.

Although speculative at the moment, the 2017 Nissan Frontier price is expected at around $22,000.
Most recently, 2017 Chevrolet Colorado spy photos have been awash on the internet displaying some of the exterior and interior designs to expect. To wit, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 promises superior off-roading and there’s no doubt it will be a strong contender in the segment once official details emerge. The Chevrolet Colorado price is expected to start from $20,100 for the extended cab.
