Toyota Tundra
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is built tough enough to handle your off road adventures and efficient enough to stretch out great gas mileage on your work commute.

Changes were few under the hood and in the cabin, as the popular pickup available at your local Goldsboro Toyota dealer was already the leader of the pack. Instead, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma saw some updates to its exterior appearance, and now sports a fresh new look on the outside to complement what was already industry leading power and technology under the hood and inside the cabin.

Other auto makers are just now getting around to adding features like a rear view camera and improved fuel efficiency. However, the Tacoma is proud to have sported these for years, as well as other features like an interior prepared to handle the dirt and mess of the outside world and a bed designed to contain cargo under any conditions.

The big changes this year is that the 2016 Tacoma from your Goldsboro Toyota dealer is bolstered by a brand-new muscular exterior styling featuring chiseled sheet metal and fenders to create a robust and sturdy style. Throw in an available hood scoop, an aggressive new grille as well as sharp-looking headlights, and the latest Tacoma is a bold truck worthy of carrying on the trophy of best non-full-size pickup.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is built to take you off road and find your own adventures with technology such as available four-wheel drive, which is ready to tackle any terrain with an electronically controlled transfer case. Additionally, this powerful pickup offers stability control sensors and outstanding traction control to make for a smooth ride inside the cabin no matter the outside terrain.

Take a peak under the hood, and you’ll notice the 2016 Toyota Tacoma boasts a few engines capable of tackling the off-road terrain just as easily as it tames the concrete jungle. The available V6 engine is built solidly with 278 horsepower and 265 pounds-per-foot of torque to handle whatever terrain you choose to roll your tires over. Its towing capacity of 6,700 pounds from the TRD trims also means that you can haul a few things, too. The 4-cylinder standard engine can flex some muscle as well, with 159 hp and 180 pounds-per-feet of torque.

Got cargo? Well, the Tacoma’s bed isn’t there just for looks, so go ahead and toss anything at it, in it or on it. The bed has fiber-reinforced Sheet-Molded Composite (SMC) inner bed that provides better impact strength than steel. A removable tailgate makes loading and unloading a breeze, while rail caps and four adjustable tie-down points keep anything and everything from getting away.

These beasts are budget-friendly as well, sporting a super-affordable starting price of just $23,300 for a base model Toyota Tacoma SR and fuel efficiency of up to 24 miles per gallon.
