Even though when it comes to trucks, Ford reigns supreme in the United States, Toyota Tacoma can also boast decent sales numbers for an overseas manufacturer. And in Hawaii, the Japanese truck even outdid its more influential rival!
If you laid your eyes on Toyota Tacoma and decided that it’s worth a buy, the further decision that you will have to make would be whether you should pick Toyota Tacoma Diesel or its petrol sibling. In this article, we’ll briefly cover five features that 2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel is expected to have.
Diesel versus petrol
To know what’s right for you, you need to take into consideration for which purpose you are buying the vehicle. If you know for sure, you’ll cover many miles and will mostly drive on motorways, stick to the diesel option. Whereas if you mostly take short trips, the truck’s petrol sibling might be a better choice.
Even though the price for 2019 Toyota Tacoma is yet to be confirmed, we expect it to be around $30,000. Compared to the average price of $25,000 for a regular Tacoma, the difference might come off as hefty. However, the diesel model will have better fuel efficiency, which in perspective will spare you stocks.
When it comes to exteriors, you shouldn’t expect any radical changes. The dimensions of both petrol and diesel models will be the same. However, it’s still possible that the truck will acquire a few distinguishable features. Interestingly, Toyota seems to have found its own path in the truck world and not to follow the tendency to install lightweight chassis. Instead, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma will have a heavier frame, which, however, won’t negatively impact the ride. All in all, it’s Ford Ranger’s serious rival in making!
As for the interior, Toyota will step up the game by making the model more spacious inside. The truck can be family friendly and apt for group trips as it has enough space for four or five persons depending on the chosen configuration. High-quality materials such as leather will be used. The driver will be able to enjoy a telescoping steering wheel and a touch-screen display with the cutting-edge infotainment system.
Toyota took complaints about the previous model’s tendency to drag seriously. For its new model, the company developed better aerodynamic shape solutions. As for the powertrain, Toyota decided to steer clear from the image of its trucks being not enough powerful. To fix it, the Japanese manufacturer is going to offer a wider range of engines with ‘meaty’ options available. All in all, Toyota’s all in for surprising customers with excellent off-road skills.
