The 2014 Toyota Tacoma
We take a look at the 2014 Toyota Tacoma
After Toyota was hit with the natural disasters as well as melting reactors, resolve the company trying pick up the pieces. Because of these issues as well as several others, we are seeing a delay in design for vehicles such as the Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tacoma. As we see the design for the 2013 Toyota Tacoma continue to be the same as the 2012 model we didn’t need to look towards the future. The great thing about Toyota is that giving them an extra year to work on the vehicle makes it that much better. The tundra is one of the few remaining light duty trucks on the market is everything else has become bigger than my RV. Today we see the need for a boost in efficiency and as we see Toyota is working to develop some powerful and highly efficient engines and transmissions. As far as exterior looks go we should see more rounded nose looking more like the Toyota Hilux design and hopefully giving us that sweet hood scoop to nowhere. Toyota will more likely also be placing skid plates underneath most of the vehicle made of heavy plastics and will also function for aerodynamics therefore helping to boost efficiency at highway speeds.
2014 Toyota Tacoma Price
As for the engine designs it looks as if Toyota will revamp its current 2.7 L in-line four cylinder with its direct injection and variable-valve-timing head to produce closer to 190 hp and 200 foot-pounds torque. As for the six-cylinder, we will likely see a downsize to a 3.5 L the will also utilize new head design therefore placing horsepower around 260 and 260 lb-ft of torque. We will likely see a six-speed automatic transmission as well as a manual and a boost in efficiency. The Toyota Tacoma 2014 should get the base two-wheel-drive four-cylinder closer to 30 miles per gallon while the six-cylinder would get closer to 26 miles per gallon.
Toyota Tacoma MPG’s
Toyota has been caught snooping around with Ford Motor Company and if the two have been working together sharing technologies then there’s always the possibility of seeing a Turbo make its way into the engine lineup which would be incredibly awesome. The problem is that it would likely make it on a 2014 Toyota Tacoma but more likely the Tundra. Either way it should likely see both Tacoma and Tundra getting in efficiency boost and a more aerodynamic body. As for the Toyota Tacoma TRD editions I hope to see a Turbo making its way into the engine bay. With TRD’s strong name I hope they run wild with accessories although I hope we can buy them at affordable prices. But to have a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Baja utilize heavy-duty Fox shocks as well as a more powerful engine would make a mini-raptor that would certainly find itself in my driveway. Until 2013, Toyota will more than likely be very secretive over its Tacoma and Tundra so look for news to be scarce.
