Many people have been wondering whether there is going to be newer updates about 2022 Toyota Tacoma – or not. After all, it has been one of the best mid-size trucks in America, gaining its own popularity and loyal fan base.
It is only logical if there have been speculations and rumors about the Tacoma – some even say that it may come as a completely new generation type. If this is the case, then a complete and thorough redesign may happen. But hold your horses because we are going to dig deeper into this model.
The Newest Updates
Aside from the possible redesigned plan, the upcoming Tacoma may come with new changes on the interior as well as the powertrain. Rumor even has it that they are offering hybrid engine option – but we aren’t really sure about it. So, what is it going to be with the Tacoma.
Exterior Redesign Plan
Toyota and its Tacoma is always making changes once in every 9 to 10 years. This is one of the reasons why there is a slim chance that 2022 Toyota Tacoma will get a new and complete redesign.
It is possible, however, that the ride may get a mid-cycle refreshment. The idea of getting exterior changes is tempting, but we have to wait for at least several years to get the complete change. In case you don’t know it, the current generation has been in the market since 2016, so you can do the math on your own.
Despite the possibility of mid-cycle refreshment, the new 2022 will get some newer updates. The truck comes with a little refreshment on the front side fascia, along with the rear part and new taillights.
There is a possibility of enlarged bumpers, but not necessarily. It is possible that the new 2022 model will use F1 architecture.
Interior Redesign Plan
For the interior, expect some little changes as well. The truck will come with premium materials, affecting the overall comfort and feel of this ride. It seems that Toyota will even have more technologies – they expect to have longer amenities lists as their standard features.
It is even possible that a bigger display screen (8-inch) would be the standard offer. However, be advised that the base trim would come with big and new unit while the upper trims (like TRD Pro) will have more exclusive and luxurious offers.
Although there hasn’t been any details about the offered features, a lot of people bet on the driver-assistance packages along with new color options.
Powertrain and Performance
Aside from offering the V6 engine with either 2.7 liter capacity or 3.5 liter capacity, there is a possibility of hybrid powertrain too. of course, it is still speculation, but there has been a plan about diesel and hybrid combo, so it is worth to wait. Not to mention, that fuel efficiency will improve.
Release Date and Price
In terms of price, new 2022 model will be higher than the current tag. Be ready to have it at the starting price of $31,500. In terms of release date, expect the new 2022 Toyota Tacoma to be available in the middle of 2022.
