Current generation of this pickup was released in 2004, so it is about time to see a next-generation model. After more than a decade, we will finally see a third-generation model, which should be presented on Detroit Auto Show, according to the rumors. New model will come with plenty of novelties but this time there won’t be some big changes in size, like it was between first two generations. New model will stay in class of mid-size pickups and everything but size will be totally different. Third-generation model will probably come as 2017 Toyota Tacoma.
2017 Toyota Tacoma specs
The 2017 Toyota Tacoma will come with plenty of changes and one of the most important will be new platform called Kaizen, which is the same that is used for new Hilux. It will also get a completely redesigned body, which will be made of extra light materials such as aluminum and HSS. This will provide significant weight savings, so 2017 Tacoma will have much better overall performances, especially in terms of fuel economy. Exterior design will be new and although it will continue in the same classic manner, it will feature plenty of new details which will make this pickup look very modern and attractive. Just like its predecessor it will be offered in three body styles – Access Cab, Double Cab and Double Cab Long Bed. When it is about interior, 2017 Toyota Tacoma will be also completely redesigned. The cabin will get new look, it will be more comfortable and it will feature more space for the passengers, thanks to the new platform which features longer wheelbase.
2017 Toyota Tacoma engines
We still don’t have exact information about engines for new model, but it is pretty much for sure that current units will be replaced with new generation of engines, which will give more power and, which is probably more important, 10-20 percent better fuel economy. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma will probably use one 4-cylinder and one V6 engine but for now, we don’t have more details.

It is very possible that new model will be presented already on Detroit Auto Show, while production will probably start next year. The price of 2017 Toyota Tacoma is still unknown but it is expected that starting model will go around 20.000 dollars.
