The next iteration of the best-selling small truck in the U.S. won't be all-new. It will stick with the current chassis but offer a fully revised exterior and interior, said Bob Carter, Toyota USA's group vice president and brand manager.
We're also expecting new engines for the Tacoma, but they won't arrive when the updated truck debuts.
This is great news for small truck fans. North American Ford Ranger production ends late this year, the Dodge/Ram Dakota will end production next year and GM has yet to confirm a version of its new overseas Chevy Colorado will eventually be sold on these shores.
