The 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4×4 Off Road has been a true road warrior since its first release back in 1995. In fact, the name of the car has already been synonymous to its off-road abilities. Drivers that range from those who like casual weekend drives to serious dirt racers.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4×4 Off Road Favors The Relaxed Weekend Driver to the Off-Road Warrior
With the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4×4 Off Road, it demonstrates how the car manufacturer’s crawl control matches up to the vehicle’s low-range transfer case when scaling a steep rock incline. Even though the Tacoma has a new front air dam which boosts fuel economy when on the highway, it is situated at the far back so as not to affect the approach of a 29-degree incline. Even though as the truck would approach a steep 35-degree incline, the vehicle was still steady on the approach. It’s steepest part of the climb wherein it was already having trouble was more than 40-degrees.
While the 2016 Toyota Tacoma was geared for off-road power, inside is a story of comfort, even though the interior is clearly built for ruggedness and not for luxury. It does, however, offer some really impressive features.
For instance, there is a 6.1-inch touchscreen display that will come off as standard, but the TRD model has a larger 7-inch screen with navigation. Inputs onto said touchscreen display are very instantaneous as with what could be expected from Toyoya’s Entune System. It will switch between the home screen, navigation, and other apps quickly and easily. Still, the display can get a bit crowded at times, and the traffic guidance was wrong most of the time. It can turn green when you’re stuck in traffic or turn red when you’re happily cruising down the highway.
Its cabin is where you won’t be afraid to get the interiors dirty yet still presents a comfortable place to ride with. While inside, road noise won’t present much of a problem as you will even hear more of the V-6 engine than the built-in stereo. For those drivers who want to record their extreme adventures with the vehicle, there is a GoPro mount built into the windshield for such moments.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4×4 Off Road carries the long legacy of off-road goodness without sacrificing comfort. Even though real-time traffic alerts are often wrong, it is still a suitable vehicle for the most flexible of drivers.
