The rumors about the third generation of the well-known Toyota Tacoma model have been really loud these days. Namely, although the Tacoma Diesel was updated in 2015, it has already been on its way now to hit the roads as a 2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel model.
When it comes to exterior design of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel, we must say that you should not expect that this model will differ much from its petrol cousin. In fact, these two will have identical exterior dimensions. Of course, there will be some distinctive visual changes and improvements compared to its predecessor. An interesting fact is that the new Tacoma Diesel will not blindly follow the trends of the next-generation trucks in order to get its lightweight chassis. Instead, this model will appear heavier, but that will not spoil its excellent off-road skills and performance. The Tacoma should probably be available in five trim levels and two configurations. You will be able to choose between a two-door and a four-door truck. This model will stand on standard 16-inch steel wheels, but larger ones will be available for higher trim levels. When it comes to exterior features, the truck should probably get a larger radiator grille since it needs more cooling for its diesel engine. This model will also use the latest LED technology for its lighting system. The whole front end will appear aggressive and more attractive. The carmaker will improve the suspension system and raise the towing capacity of this truck, too. Clearly, the new Tacoma Diesel will be ready for all kinds of adventures and terrains and it will appear as a serious rival to the Ford Ranger, for instance.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel will provide more comfortable and spacious cabin than its predecessor that will be able to accommodate four or five adult passengers, depending on the configuration you choose. Toyota will use high-quality materials such as leather and it will upgrade technology as well. The driver will get a telescoping steering wheel and a 6.1 or 7.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system. The new Tacoma Diesel will also provide the necessary safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, airbags, seatbelts, automatic high-beams, a rearview camera, parking sensors, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning and others.
The 2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel will probably offer more than one engine choice under its hood. However, the most possible version should come with a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that delivers 177 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission, but it will also offer an optional six-speed automatic.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Diesel has still been a mystery, but we expect more information about this truck soon. It has been said that the price of this truck could start under $30,000.
