2016 Toyota TacomaMark CarGuy - Laurel, MD05/17/2016
The transmission shifts gears constantly, and the droning engine noise is irritating and makes it sound like an econo-box. I think this truck would almost be tolerable with a manual transmission, but the auto tranny and engine noise are major turn offs.

If there was a 'maybe' response, I'd choose it. The ride is tolerable. The TRD Off-Road package (with 4WD) is very capable off-road. Handling is not bad for a truck with an off-road oriented suspension and off-road tires. It is a maneuverable package and fits fairly well in tight spots.
Fuel economy- I'm unable to hit the combined EPA rating. My highway mileage averages about 18-19 MPG driving slow. I don't tow. I usually have about 50 lbs worth of gear in the bed.
Power is not bad. However, it feels like it is all in the higher rev range.
In the 25k miles I've had it, one of the rear brakes leaked. The transfer case leaked. The power steering rack had to be replaced. One of the rear back-up sensors failed and had to be replaced.
2016 Toyota Tacoma Overview
The Toyota Tacoma boasts refreshed styling in the 2016 model year. Though redesigned, the Toyota Tacoma is still the same highly capable midsize pickup car buyers have come to expect from its nameplate. Thankfully, that also means that the vehicle can still haul just about anything that can fit in its pickup bed.
Features & Specs
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma base model is equipped with features buyer expect from modern vehicles such as air conditioning, and an AM/FM stereo and radio. Higher trims come with remote keyless entry, SiriusXM radio and built-in navigational features. Though higher trims don't offer luxury options, they do get make the truck more prepared for off-roading.
Design & Performance
The Toyota Tacoma is able to go just about anywhere thanks to its off-road suspension and sturdy frame. With enough built-in technology to truly optimize its off-roading experience, the vehicle is durable enough for drivers to routinely drive over rough terrain without concern. Two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available, enabling more customization. The driving experience, whether on the road or off-road, delivers a truck-like feel.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma comes with Double Cab or Access Cab body styles. It also offers short or long bed options, with the following trim options: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road models.
Powertrain & Engine
The 2016 Tacoma offers a choice between four-cylinder engine and a V6 engine. The 2.7L four-cylinder engine is standard, with front-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. The V6 matches the four-cylinder option on fuel efficiency, but delivers on off-road performace and acceleration.
Body Style & Interior Comfort
The exterior remains unchanged, and the cabin is somewhat traditional for a pickup, with an attracted dashboard similar to previous Toyota Tacoma models. The vehicle has a high floor and a low roof, lacking sought-after head and leg room for taller drivers.
