Tacoma Diesel. The new Tacoma was launched in 2015 and has since become the favorite vehicle for those looking for a medium-sized, durable truck. However, unfortunately, there are still a lot of people who buy one and it seems that Toyota’s sales are not as good as we thought. This is mainly because they do not offer diesel while their main competitor, Colorado, has one. Thanks to that he managed to grab many customers who wanted a diesel truck. While Toyota said diesel would have no meaning in Tacoma in the near future because the cost would become prohibitive, we are confident that the truck’s half-lifespan will be the same with the Toyota Tacoma 2018.
This is because Toyota will lose a lot of customers by not offering diesel fuel. That would be a shame, especially because they have many developed diesel engines for the international market. Our best bet is that Tacoma will get a new generation of diesel, smaller than its competitors, but more efficient and perhaps stronger. The price is still unknown, as more than two years are missing, but since its competitors’ prices are around $ 31,000, we expect the Tacoma fuel base to cost them around.
As with the old model of the truck, the Toyota Tacoma 2018 will not change much when it comes to its design or even inside. Mainly because the truck is still in its infancy and still looks much better than others. However, since diesel is likely to require more cooling than gasoline engines, we expect you to receive a hood cover and an internal radiator installed on top or a larger grid in the front bumper of an internal cooler. This would also make the diesel version of the truck more aggressive in design. Besides some minor improvements, such as off-road wheels or a slightly better suspension, the truck should quickly become a favorite.
Returning to the basics, it is also likely that the strong interior areas will be moved almost unchanged. The only real improvements here will be the addition of a new information and entertainment system. There will also be a new level of basic decoration that will include the most stringent furnishings and standard rubber mats. This would turn them into theft for those who seek to use the truck only on the roads, and thanks to their engine, they must be able to do so.
The standard model of the Toyota Tacoma truck currently operates with a 2.7-liter V6 or a larger 3.5-liter engine. The Toyota Tacoma 2018 is expected to offer one of the new Toyota powertrains but adjusted for the US market. The best competitor is the new 2.8-liter turbo, which is currently used in the Hilux with its 177-horsepower.
However, as the US market requires a specific type of emissions, the engine is likely to be modified for Tacoma. This means it will reach about 170 horsepower, but the torque is greater with an estimated 350 lb-ft, more than 20 pounds of a normal engine. The final result must be a similar truck in performance for Colorado but more efficient. This is thanks to its lightweight engine and new generation. Diesel is expected to be supplied only with a 6-speed automatic transmission, despite the fact that the Hilux model is also available in a manual but with lower torque.
As we mentioned earlier, there are still two years before the formal introduction. This is why there is not much information about the history of the 2018 Toyota Tacoma diesel. According to some rumors, it is likely that they will offer the car in the summer months of 2017. This means that the car will hit the market in the first months of 2018. There is a possibility Another is that the car is exhibited at the Chicago Motor Show 2017, so it will be available for purchase somewhere during 2017 as the 2018 model.
