The Rumored Changes In The All New Toyota Tacoma 2019
The last 2015 model of Tacoma released by Toyota came with quite a few problems. It was neither efficient nor powerful, and failed miserably in impressing the buyers.

The new Tacoma is expected to be more powerful, have higher variations, be cost effective and extremely attractive. In fact, the company is claiming this new truck to be the most powerful truck in the market. You can expect a brand new engine in the Toyota Tacoma 2019 along with the addition of many great equipment packages.
There has not been any official launch of the vehicle in the market yet, and therefore most of the information that we know about the same is based on the various rumors doing the rounds. Based on these rumors, what we can make out is as follows:

Design And Looks
Not many changes are expected in the exterior or the interior design of the vehicle. However, to give the vehicle a more refined look of a perfect mid size truck, there have been slight changes that have been made.
- Changes To The Exterior: The vehicle will be available in 2 variations. The first variation will come with four doors and a cargo. While the second variation will have just two doors and a cargo area. Besides this, another major change in the exteriors of the vehicle will come in the form of the use of LED lights for headlights and taillights. The chassis will be ungraded in order to give the vehicle a more rigid appearance. A fully boxed frame would be used for the chassis. The body will continue to be made out of steel, thereby making the vehicle slightly heavy.
- Changes To The Interior: The amount of space available inside the cabin is expected to increase. The seats would be arranged in two rows, and will offer comfortable seating for 5 people. The leg room and head room in the vehicle are expected to increase as well. The company has added many new features to enhance the level of safety and stability of the truck. Some of the new features you will find inside the cabin towards this end include 6 airbags, parking sensors, stability control and a camera for the rear view.
- Changes To The Engine: The main purpose of launching this new vehicle was to offer the customers a more powerful truck. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the engine fitted in this new truck will also be brand new. The Toyota Tacoma 2019 will come with a 3.5 liter V6 diesel engine. The power train of this engine is expected to be around 236 horsepower. This engine will be paired with a six speed automatic transmission system. There are also rumors that besides this 3.5 liter engine, the manufacturer may actually offer other engine options to the customers as well.
- Changes In Performance Levels: Besides enhanced power, the biggest performance change that you can expect from this new truck is with regards to its towing capacity. The current 2015 model of Tacoma is able to tow cargo up to 6800 pounds, while the towing capacity of the new Tacoma is expected to touch 8000 pounds.
Release Date And Price
The 2019 Toyota Tacoma is expected to be launched by the company by the end of 2018. However, there has been no information or any sort of confirmation from the company yet. The expected release date has been calculated based on the information from the manufacturing plant of the company and the unofficial reports released by the company. As far as the pricing of the new vehicle is concerned, it is expected that the starting price of this powerful truck would be around $49000.
All in all, one can expect an extremely reliable and powerful truck from Toyota, which would come with a good engine and some very interesting and useful accessories.
