2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport Manassas

The redesigned 2016 Toyota Tacoma keeps the things that make it a solid, reliable pickup, while incorporating new features to make Manassas car shoppers happy they looked at this vehicle. It’s a good reminder of why the Tacoma remains so popular.

2016 Toyota Tacoma Exterior

The redesigned exterior of the 2016 Tacoma keeps the tough, muscular side. The hood and grille are aggressive looking, but the smooth lines show off a friendlier side, too. This is a truck made to go off-roading and tow things, but it’s also a pickup for the city.

There are plenty of things to rave about the Tacoma’s utility. These features include:

  • In-bed storage compartment to put tools, muddy gear, or anything else you need to store outside the cab
  • Deck rail system with four heavy-duty adjustable tie-down cleats
  • Fiber-reinforced Sheet-Molded Composite (SMC) surface with 120 volt outlet
  • Locking hard tri-fold tonneau cover for extra security when things are in the back
  • Lower tailgate that can be removed for carrying longer items

2016 Toyota Tacoma Technology

The 2016 Tacoma is safer than it has ever been, as well as shows off new tech for the Manassas driver and passenger alike. Safety features include the Honda Sensing safety suite, as well as integrated backup camera, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and stronger, more solid doors.

Other tech includes Smart Key with push button start, Qi-wireless charging for your smartphone, and EnTune Audio system which lets occupants access whatever apps, traffic, or navigation through the 7-inch touch screen. Also new is a place near the rearview mirror to mount a GoPro camera to show off what you can do when you’re off-road in the Tacoma.

2016 Toyota Tacoma Engine

The 2016 Tacoma gets a new 3.5-liter V-6 coded 2GR-FKS. It’s quieter, improves fuel economy, and puts out 278-horsepower. The new standard six-speed auto transmission gives flexibility whether on the road or off-road. The Tacoma also comes with an upgraded six-speed manual. Both automatic and manual select work well and give the Tacoma power when you need it in Columbia or out of town.
