Set to battle the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, the redesigned Tacoma has an evolutionary design which borrows a number of cues from the 4Runner.
Toyota has unveiled the 2016 Tacoma at the North American International Auto Show.
Starting up front, there's a prominent grille which is flanked by distinctively headlights with optional LED daytime running lights. The truck also has muscular fenders, an "easy lowering" tailgate and a variety of wheels ranging in sizes from 16- to 18-inches.
The cabin is relatively straight forward and features circular air vents, metallic trim and a standard windshield-mounted GoPro camera. Higher-end variants can be equipped with a variety of options including leather upholstery, a touchscreen infotainment system and a wireless smartphone charger.
Under the hood, two engines will be available. Entry-level models will have a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, while high-end variants have an all-new 3.5-liter Atkinson-cycle V6 engine with D-4S technology. Toyota declined to release performance specifications but confirmed both engines will be connected to a new six-speed automatic transmission (a six-speed manual will also be available on V6 variants).
