2016 Toyota Tacoma: The Most Anticipated Test Drive of the Year

Mount Airy, NC, Aug. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For fans who have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the new Toyota Tacoma, the time is almost here. This fall Mount Airy Toyota will receive the 2016 version of the mid-sized truck that leads them all. And though there are some nice aesthetically pleasing changes to its exterior and interior, most impressive is what we find under the hood and body of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. All aspects that make the frame and engine tick have been reconsidered and updated for higher performance, strength, and rigidity. And what better way to showcase these changes then by giving the 2016 Toyota Tacoma a test drive.

Upon entering this venerated truck, one can't help but feel that it seems sturdier, tougher--not just in looks, but in stature. This is due to the updated frame built with ultra-high-strength steel, and fined tuned front and back suspensions, springs, and axles. These features allow for a much smoother, capable drive on or off the beaten path.

For many parts of the country these new features might not make a big difference but for people that regularly drive the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia sturdier is better! Snow, ice and extremely cold weather during the winter months make this kind of truck a necessity for getting to and from work.

The new 2016 Toyota Tacoma offers an improved 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that will produce more power with better efficiency. Even more impressive they have added the option of a 3.5-liter Atkinson cycle V-6 power engine that will integrate direct and port fuel injection with Toyota D-4S technology. This high-performing advancement saves on gas (EPA fuel-economy numbers will be out soon) but misses nothing in pick-up and power. The 4-cylinder Tacoma engine is more than adequate but test results show that drivers are delighted with the extreme power of the new V-6.

Upon taking the 2016 Tacoma out for a test drive, it's evident that some serious thought has gone into keeping this brand the toughest, most respected mid-sized truck on the road today. The ride is much quieter. Highway travel is smooth and luxurious due to the top-shelf interior features. The 2016 comes with Qi wireless charging, push-button start, leather interior options, optional power moonroof and dual-zone auto-climate control.

Mount Airy Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram serves the North Carolina and Virginia areas. It's a short drive from Galax, VA and to the south, even closer to Winston-Salem. For test drives or to reserve one of these adventurous new trucks, call 336-786-2118 or visit the website at www.MountAiryToyota.com.
