New Toyota Tacoma 2022 Concept, Release Date, Colors – The New Toyota Tacoma 2022 Concept is synonymous with mid-size trucks and has won numerous awards. However, this segment has seen the competition increase multi-fold over the years, with trucks such as the Ford Ranger increasing their overall game. Despite all the competition, this latest Tacoma was launched in 2016 and is becoming old.
Many people speculate on whether Tacoma will get a redesign similar to the Tundra or if it will keep the same design as 2016. Although the carmaker has kept the details quiet about the model year, we would love to see the Tacoma receive the same facelift as the Tundra and the latest tech inside.
New Toyota Tacoma 2022 Redesign
Since its introduction, New Toyota Tacoma 2022 Concept has been on the market for a while. The exterior will remain the same as the model year 2022 because we haven’t seen many changes to the outside. The Taco’s headlights feature full LEDs, and the large matte black grille gives it an intense look.
The Tacoma looks more like a car from the side. It also has a lower roof, so it isn’t as bulky as other trucks in this segment. Thanks to its higher ground clearance and giant rims, the Tacoma looks like it is ready to take on any off-road challenge. The TACOMA branding and step-ups that can be used to raise the tailgate are embossed on the tailgate. This gives the truck its rugged and muscular look.
The interior will remain essentially unchanged for the model year 2022. Interior design is beneficial and dark. The newer model years will bring a more vibrant color scheme. The cabin has soft-touch areas throughout and is mainly covered in cloth. Access Cabs do not have leather upholstery, but the Limited trim has leather upholstery. There are plenty of storage areas inside, as well. High seating and a wide windshield give you confidence when driving down the road.
The cabin is compact, so there is plenty of headroom but not enough legroom. While the front seats can be adjusted with great ease, the rear seats don’t have as much adjustment. Two people can fit in the rear seats. Three people in the back seats will be too cramped for comfort.
New Toyota Tacoma 2022 Engine
The New Toyota Tacoma 2022 Concept is equipped with a 2.7L Inline-4 engine that produces 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on the SR5 and SR5 trims. The 3.5L V6 engine is optional for the SR and SR5 trims and is standard on TRD trims. It produces 278 horses and 265 lb-ft pulling power.
Both engines come standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, the V6 can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission (higher trims) if you prefer to change gears. The standard powertrain is rear-wheel drive, but 4WD can be added.
The Honda Ridgeline is a premium truck that offers more features than the others and has a higher price. For example, the buyers can choose between two engines or power plants for the Tacoma and Colorado, while the Ridgeline (and Ranger) only offer one engine. In addition, Tacoma has a manual transmission, which is rare in this vehicle.
Toyota Tacoma 2022 Release Date and Price
The 2021 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab is priced at $26,400 in the SR trim. For a few thousand more, you can go up to the SR5 and end up at the TRD Sport or TRD Off-Road, which are the highest-end models. TRD Sport, which is more geared towards performance on the tarmac, is “V6 only”, while TRD Off-Road is capable of offroading.
The 2022 model year will see the same lineup but with a $500 increase. Again, this is similar to the model years before. Multiple sources have cited the same timeframe, and we anticipate the 2022 Toyota Tacoma hitting American shores in the Fall of 2021, if not delayed by the pandemic.
