Motor vehicle
The Tacoma was introduced in the US in February 1995 ( March 1995 market plunge ) as a successor for the Hilux, which prior to this was marketed in the US under the name Toyota Pickup. Compared with the Hilux, the Tacoma is engineered with a greater precedence on ride quality, handling, comfort, and safety over huskiness and cargo capacity. The design is intended to better suit the needs of the US and Canadian pickup hand truck marketplace, where pickup trucks, particularly compact and midsized models, are often used as personal vehicles, and less entirely for commercial, agricultural, and off-road use. The name was derived from the Coast Salish peoples ‘ diagnose for Mt. Rainier in Washington. [ 3 ] Development began in 1989, following launch of the fifth-generation Toyota Pickup in late 1988 and concluded in 1994. Design bring was done at Calty Design Research in California from 1990 to 1992, when Kevin Hunter ‘s outside invention proposal was chosen in the fall of 1991 and in final form, frigid for production in 1992. Patents for the production design were filed in Japan in April 1993 and October 28, 1993, in the United States. [ 4 ] [ 5 ] Three engines were available for the Toyota Tacoma :

  • 2.4 L four-cylinder rated at 142 hp (106 kW) and 160 lb⋅ft (217 N⋅m) of torque
  • 2.7 L four-cylinder rated at 150 hp (112 kW) and 177 lb⋅ft (240 N⋅m) of torque
  • 3.4 L V6 rated at 190 hp (142 kW) and 220 lb⋅ft (298 N⋅m) of torque

The 2.4 L gave 26 miles per US gallon ( 9.0 L/100 kilometer ; 31 mpg‑imp ) ( highway cycle, 2WD ), the 2.7 L gave 20 miles per US gallon ( 12 L/100 kilometer ; 24 mpg‑imp ) ( highway cycle, 4WD ), and the 3.4 L delivered 21 miles per US gallon ( 11 L/100 kilometer ; 25 mpg‑imp ) ( highway cycle, 2WD ). [ 6 ] two-wheel drive ( 2WD ) Tacomas ( non-PreRunner models ) had five-stud wheel-lug patterns and available with the 2.4-L or 3.4-L automatic and manual transmissions were available. Four-wheel force and PreRunner Tacomas had six-stud wheel-lug patterns and were available with the 2.7-L and 3.4-L engines. All PreRunner and all Double Cab models were lone available with an automatic transmittance for the first generation, while the even cab and Xtracab four-wheel drive was available with either a manual infection or automatic pistol infection. The hand truck ‘s inning is amply boxed until immediately after the back leaf form ride bracket, where it transitions into a c-frame incision. The 3.4 V6 ‘s manual transmission was an R150F, while the automatic pistol infection was an A340F for 4WD ( Aisin code is 30-40LE ) and A340E for 2WD. The aftermarket TRD supercharged 3.4-L V6 produced 254 bhp ( 189 kilowatt ) and 270 lb⋅ft ( 366 N⋅m ). [ 7 ] From 1997 on, the regular cab were only available with a 2.4-L or a 2.7-L four-cylinder engine. The TRD Off-Road package was introduced in 1998. This package added a lock rear differential and was only available to PreRunner and four-wheel drive models that were equipped with a V6. In its first base few years of production, the Tacoma sold very well, attracting many young buyers. The first-generation Tacoma undergo a minor headlight promote from recessed to flush headlights in October 1996 on 2WD models and a full of two cosmetic facelifts : the first in July 1997 and the second in October 2000. The facelifts chiefly entailed grilles ( model class 1998 and 2001 ) and tailgate badge and emblems ( MY1998 ). mechanical changes included a interchange to distributorless ignitions ( coil-on-plug ) in 1996 and in 1997 longer rear leaf springs. A passenger-side air bag was added in July 1997, and the driver’s-side air travel bulge ( standard from 1995 launch ) was “ depowered ”. Most 4×4 models came with Toyota ‘s Automatic Differential Disconnect system after the 2000 model year. The PreRunner model was introduced for the 1998 model year. The PreRunner is a 2WD that shares the same tall pause and lug pattern as the four-wheel drive. Along with the four-wheel force model, it was besides available with the TRD Off-Road Package that included a locking back differential gear, besides introduced in 1998. Designed through 1998 ( by Yusuke Fukushima ) as contribution of the MY2001 face lift ( patented on September 22, 1998, at Japan Patent Office under # 0890798 ) was a new gang taxi ( four-door ) model added to the batting order in October 2000. The crew cab, officially dubbed as the Double Cab model, featured four doors and Tokico natural gas shocks, while the strain taxi still opened with two doors and used Bilstein shocks. The drawn-out cab featured a 6 foot ( 1.8 molarity ) layer, while the crew taxi featured a 5-foot-5-inch ( 1.65 molarity ) bed. many customers were swage with humble crew taxi beds, but most competitors shared this defect. [ 8 ] In October 2000, along with the front face lift, Toyota had besides unveiled an S-Runner trim package that included the 3.4-liter V6 locomotive. It came with 16-inch ( 410 millimeter ) alloy wheels, and a five-speed manual transmission with Tokico gasoline shocks. only 800 were produced each calendar month from September 2000 to August 2004. By 2003, the Tacoma had gained 16.5 % sales from its previous years. The Tacoma ‘s popularity only increased in the future few years. By 2004, it was ahead of the Nissan Frontier, and Dodge Dakota, but still 2.2 % behind in sales to the Ford Ranger. In 2008, Toyota proactively announced a 15-year, unlimited-mileage corrosion guarantee for 1995–2000 model years due to inadequate rustproofing and frame corrosion issues affecting over 800,000 Tacomas. Toyota will either repair the human body or buy back the hand truck for 1.5 times its KBB retail value. [ 9 ] [ 10 ] This was belated extended to include 2001–2004 model years, but in these cases when a frame was found to be rusty to the detail of perforation, the frame is replaced with a new one alternatively of a buy bet on. [ 11 ] On November 21, 2012, Toyota recalled about 150,000 Tacoma midsized pickup trucks from the mannequin years 2001 to 2004 that were sold primarily in 20 cold-weather U.S. states. The recall involves the spare tire and how it could fall off. [ 12 ]

Second coevals ( N220/N240/N250/N260/N270 ; 2004 ) [edit ]

Motor vehicle
In 2000, Toyota began development of the second generation Tacoma under headman engineer Chikuo Kubota. [ 17 ] The majority of development workplace was handled by Hino in Japan. Designers Shigeya Hattori and Hideo Karikomi of Hino, won the inner design contest in 2001. final designs were fixed for production in 2002 and patents filed on July 3, 2003, with test mules being tested from early 2003. Prototypes were built late in 2003, with development ending in the second quarter of 2004. [ 18 ] On February 4, 2004 at the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota unveiled a bigger and more knock-down Tacoma. Launched on October 18, 2004 as a 2005 mannequin, this new Tacoma was available in eighteen different configurations, that included three cab configurations, four transmissions, two engines, and two bed lengths. The three cab configurations dwell of regular taxi, access cab, and double taxi. The transmissions come in 4-speed automatic rifle, 5-speed automatic, 5-speed manual, and 6-speed manual. Beds are : 6 foot ( 1.8 thousand ) long layer, and 5 foot ( 1.5 megabyte ) short-circuit bed. The Tacoma ‘s 4.0-liter 1GR-FE V6 took the place of the original 3.4-liter 5VZ-FE V6. The new V6 had many enhancements, such as a tow military rank of 6,500 pound ( 2,948 kilogram ), and a warhead capacity of 1,650 pound ( 748 kilogram ). It produces 236 horsepower ( 176 kilowatt ) and 266 lb⋅ft ( 361 N⋅m ) of torsion. The smaller, but all-new 2.7-liter 2TR-FE 4-cylinder alternative in less expensive models is rated at 159 horsepower ( 119 kilowatt ) and 180 lb⋅ft ( 244 N⋅m ). of torsion. Toyota besides introduced an X-Runner snip, which replaces the dull selling S-Runner snip from the previous generation. The X-Runner features the 1GR-FE paired to a six-speed manual transmission, 18 in ( 457 millimeter ) alloy wheels, is lowered two inches from the factory and included an X-Brace abeyance software. Toyota besides included a Down-Hill Assist Control ( DAC ) and Hill-Start Assist Control ( HAC ), with models that were equipped with the optional Toyota Racing Development ( TRD ) Off-Road package. DAC mechanically applies braking during downhill descents while HAC prevents the fomite from rolling backwards on hills. A back lock derived function, or limited-slip differential were besides some optional features. Every tacoma was manufactured with a composite inside bed that includes a deck railing organization with four tie down cleats, hook-pins, storehouse boxes. TRD box equipped Tacomas besides feature an in-bed 115 V/400 W AC exponent wall socket. The tie down cleats are rated to hold up to 220 pound ( 100 kilogram ). The 2006 model Tacoma was a snatch unlike from the 2005 model. The 2006 model made some options standard. Toyota besides added 2 new interior colors for the 2007 model year. 2008 models are carry-ons from 2007. For 2009 safety features were added and the Tacoma no longer offers a mechanical limit slip differential quite an open differential gear which uses person steering wheel braking to simulate a mechanical LSD or “ Auto-LSD ”. TRD off-road models continue to come equipped with a locking rear differential. The second generation Tacomas were assembled in Tijuana, Mexico and Fremont, California while the plastic/composite beds were all built in Mexico. After the bankruptcy of GM, GM ended its joint venture with Toyota. Toyota, needing extra output volume at its Texas and Mississippi plants, ended Corolla and Tacoma production at the Fremont plant. [ 19 ] In 2010 all Tacoma production was moved to Toyota ‘s Texas plant in San Antonio alongside the Tundra. This brought a total of approximately 1,000 new jobs to San Antonio. A minor face lift came for 2009, including a slightly revised wicket on some models, new LED taillamps, and on the X-Runner, TRD Offroad and TRD Sport models includes smoke headlight trim. aide sound recording remark now comes standard. The Access/Double Cab trucks have two new ceiling mounted speakers and available backup monitor. Four new exterior colors are besides added to the Tacoma. The 2012 model class freshen featured a restyled front bumper, headlights, wicket, hood, new interior and a shark fin antenna for the SiriusXM satellite radio. The 2013 model class comes with touch screen sound recording system and removes the shark fin antenna and SiriusXM radio capability unless the optional Entune software is installed. 2014 models came with a modern SR shave and for 2015 models the regular taxi model was discontinued. In November 2016, Toyota USA settled a classify action courtship over frame rust, agreeing to inspect and if necessity replace rusted frames on 2005–2010 model year Tacomas, 2007–2008 MY Tundras, and 2005–2008 MY Sequoias in the US and its territories. [ 20 ]

safety and structural integrity [edit ]

The Tacoma comes standard with anti-lock brakes, brake aid, and electronic brakeforce distribution. For 2008, a rollover detector was added which would deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of rollover in Tacomas equipped with the optional english airbags. Beginning with the 2009 model year, all Tacomas have Toyota ‘s Star Safety System which added Vehicle Stability Control and grip dominance. Front row side torso airbags and side curtain airbags for both rows besides become standard american samoa well as active head restraints. [ 21 ] [ 22 ] Given the smaller size of pickup trucks in the Tacoma ‘s class, clang testing for these size trucks lags with how well most full moon size trucks perform. however, in an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ( IIHS ) test of the Tacoma and other small trucks, only the side airbag equipped Tacoma received the highest overall military rank of “ dear ” in the side impingement test. [ 23 ] The Tacoma besides is rated “ effective ” in the frontlet stolon crash test. [ 24 ] In 2009 with the active head restraints the Tacoma is given the IIHS ‘s Top Safety Pick prize .

[ 30 ] About 1200 TRD Pro Tacomas were made. [ 31 ]

Ironman version [edit ]

In 2008, an “ Ironman ” version was released, named after Ivan “ Ironman ” Stewart. [ 32 ] The engine output was increased to 304 horsepower ( 227 kilowatt ) and 334 ft⋅lb ( 453 N⋅m ) with the accession of the TRD Supercharger and Magnaflow consume .
Toyota Tacoma X-Runner Access cab 2005–2008 model class TacomaAccess cab The Toyota X-Runner was a limit production sport model. Although it utilizes the standard 4.0L and 6-speed manual from other Tacomas, the X-runner uses lowered double-wishbone abeyance, Bilstein shocks and frame x-bracing. The X-Runner is only available in three colors per year, and lone five colors sum. For the 2005 to 2008 model years, the X-Runner was available in Speedway Blue, Radiant Red and Black Sand Pearl. 2009 exchanged Radiant Red for Barcelona Red Metallic and Black Sand Pearl for Black. For the 2012 model class face lift, Speedway Blue became Nautical Blue Metallic and then Blue Ribbon Metallic for 2014/2015.

Back To The Future Tacoma Concept [edit ]

On October 21, 2015, Toyota and Universal Pictures celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of the Back to the Future ( franchise ) with a Toyota Tacoma Concept that was inspired by the original Toyota pickup that Toyota created for Back to the Future. The 2016 Tacoma 4WD was recreated using the same features and black color paint pare, KC HiLite driving lamps ( modified with LED lighting ), modified headlights and taillights ( matching the 1985 version ), the Toyota badge to the truck ‘s tailgate, equally well as the same D-4S fuel injection, and the 1985-inspired mudflaps. The only difference between the 1985 master and the 2016 concept is the tires : Goodyear was featured in the 1985 film, while BF Goodrich is used on the concept. The concept besides did not have a solid front axle like the original 1985 Pickup. Toyota notes that this is a one-off concept as there are no plans to offer it as a software or flush trim. [ 58 ]
