The most popular mid-size pickup truck on the market has recently received a major update. For this occasion, the Japanese manufacturer was acting pretty pragmatic. Instead of offering all kinds of visual modification, the focus was on the most critical points. Therefore, the new version came mostly with updates in terms of features. This particularly refers to the introduction of a new infotainment system. There is new software, which supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa. Also, there is a new power-adjustable driver seat, as well as several more interesting features. All this indicates that the next-year won’t bring any particular change and that the 2021 Toyota Tacoma release date should be scheduled for a typical time of year.
2021 Toyota Tacoma Release Date Schedule
Although it is still early to talk about the exact details, we may presume that the lack of changes means the 2021 Toyota Tacoma release date will be scheduled for a typical time of year. In this case, that would sometime late in 2020, probably in December.
Of course, you probably wonder which versions would come first. This truck comes in two body styles, in Access Cab and Double Cab versions. Still, we are pretty sure that both versions will come at the same time. The same thing goes for the off-road TRD Pro version, which is now available in both cab designs.
More details should be known in the next few months.
2021 Toyota Tacoma Release Date and Pricing
Besides the 2021 Toyota Tacoma release date, another thing that may interest you is the price. This truck comes in several versions, so it’s no wonder that the price goes in a pretty wide range. Base models are available already at around 26.000 dollars. Of course, we are talking about the base SR trim in the Access Cab layout. While the Double Cab model would cost you a couple of thousands more.
The SR5 adds several standard features and goes around 28.000 dollars. The Limited trim goes around 38.000 dollars but comes with significantly more standard features.
The TRD lineup starts with the Sport model, which comes with loads of exclusive styling details. This model goes around 33.000 dollars. The TRD Off-Road is slightly more expensive, but it comes with several mechanical upgrades, particularly in terms of mechanics.
Finally, there is the TRD Pro trim, the most expensive Tacoma in the offer. This model comes with both mechanical upgrades and exclusive styling. There is also a new Army Green color option model in the offer. The price starts at around 44.000 dollars.
Tacoma Might Get Redesigned Soon
While the next year won’t bring bigger changes and the 2021 Toyota Tacoma release date is expected to be scheduled for typical time, some reports suggest that the popular pickup truck could receive a complete overhaul earlier than you would probably expect. While the previous generation was in production for a full decade, this one will probably be in production for a couple of years less.
There are a few reasons to believe in such a scenario. First of all, the new Tundra is on its way and it will ride on Toyota’s new global truck platform, which will be modular and used for all trucks that come from this Japanese manufacturer. This means the whole development will take much less time than usual. Also, keep in mind that the recent update was pretty modest in terms of styling, as well as that we haven’t seen any change under the hood, despite that the current gasoline units seem a little bit outdated.
The next-generation model should bring improvements in various aspects, starting from better towing capacity, more spacious cabin, more efficient powertrain etc. More details should be known in the near future.
