Toyota has released the first teaser image of the 2016 Tacoma, ahead of its debut at the North American International Auto Show on January 12th.

The teaser image doesn't reveal much but we can see the model will feature vertical taillights and a body-color rear bumper with plastic cladding. The picture also shows a distinctively shaped tailgate with stamped "Tacoma" lettering.

Toyota is keeping details a closely guarded secret but they claim the redesigned model will "once again set the benchmark for midsize pickup performance." The company also says the 2016 Tacoma will have "new, rugged tech" which will give it more off-road prowess than ever before.
