Way to go Toyota. Give us a Diesel and you will be King.

Off road package?
TOYota

Most likely stripes and badges.

Wow! What a big disappointment! i thought they would have some news on there next gen Tundra? but whatever! the new GMC Sierra is gonna be the big deal at this auto shower along with the new RAM and Silverado!

A reconstituted TRD Pro is my guess as it would be the cheapest way to keep things fresh.

Yawn. An update to the TRD that is already on sale.

Boring just another sticker package from a boring Jap import junker!

^^^ahahaha says the guy with a GM badge queen hahahahahja

So exciting they decided to release the news early. Once again, I won't be expecting much from Toyota.

Nice, finally something to outdo the Ford junk.
Way to go Toyota.

Toyota Tacoma is a pretty darn good off trail truck , I see no reason to knock Toyota so much. I would take one over a Ford any day.

The GM supporters can’t stay on topic..., they can’t keep an open mind to see what Toyota is gonna bring to the show..., it just might show-up their beloved GM..., oh well...,
Post Responsibly and Behave folks

I was in Tokyo Japan for a few days last week for work and an observation I realized was I didn’t see a single pickup. I saw a small number of pickups in Singapore and Toyota Hilux everywhere in Thailand. Anyone know why there isn’t any pickups in Tokyo?

With that said, any pickup news coming out from Toyota in the US is good news for the fans here.

King at what? light duty and lighter duty trucks? Power Wagon is was and will always be the King. Since 1946.

@ johnny doe,

How old you?

I am not even a liberal but you are a racist!

@oxi,

"Jap" is simply a shortening of the word Japanese. Also, Japan doesn’t do multiculturalism. And GM builds better trucks.

USA > Japan

Racist: someone who wins an argument against a liberal.

Ford chevy Ram is far beyond this ancient old turd with its wobbly frame and inefficient 5.7 I force the 13 mpg is ridiculous! Its ugly old Cobbled together-copied big three design is Stale in comparison hell even the Nissan Titan is a far better choice.

@ johnny doe, GMSRGREST,

Nice to know how educated you are when both of my Tacoma's have Made In USA stamped on their data plates!

USA is better than Japan, that is why I buy U.S. built Tacoma's!

If GM was so much better, why cannot GM sell more Colorado's than the Tacoma?

It's quite funny. The mention of toyota triggers all sorts of defensive and reactive comments.. that goes to show how scared they are.

oxi is such a liberal, trigger little snow flake. Go drive your rotted in half jap scrap to the next forum and cry there snow flake.

@ johnny doe,

You are a disgrace to this nation! You are a hypocrites to your liberal upbringing, you precious weak snowflake!

I know more about trucks than you can wet dream about!

The very fact that both of my Tacoma's were made in the United States by Americans shows how dumb and ignorant you liberals are!

By your own pathetic definition, you hate this nation and you hate Americans! Because if you are racist against a whole society because of a truck, that also means you hate Americans because somebody drives a Ford or Dodge. Look in the mirror you pathetic racist!

Texas is not Japan you dumb fool. Read a map will ya!

@ johnny doe,

No wonder you would be backing GM, because a liberal buys from GM!

The reason is quite obvious...

GM is a pathetic company that could not manage its own business, thus ran to mommy and daddy big government to bail their pathetic weak rears out!

GM blames the American people for their losses, just like liberals that want free handouts and perpetual welfare!

Go ahead and keep supporting a FAILED company, it only defines who you really are and what you seek out of life, and that is free handouts off the backs of the working class!

You are a liberal...

Well I am a GM fan, don't follow politics at all, here in B.C there are enough wanna be politicians. Anyway I like Toyota products, I respect they are built here in the U.S.A, , and the Taco is a great trail rig. The reason I drive GMC, is that I have owned several of their trucks and never any issues. I prefer to have a Diesel in my truck, so when downsizing to a Mid size truck, the 2.8L Canyon Duramax checked all the boxes, and has exceeded my expectations so far after 45K and no issues whatsoever.

^ So fun trigging snow flake libtards. Your rotted jap scrap yota got money from the jap government to there little snow flake.

Better go put your pink p hat on and march around screaming racist at everything trying to look useful!

Japanese Automaker Subsidy to End – Say What?

Many Americans are irate that the U.S. government, during two different adminstrations, helped bailout General Motors and Chrysler. Little do they know that Japan helped out their automakers too. That subsidy, though, is about to end.Toyota and Honda Motor Co. both benefited from the Japanese governments subsidy of vehicle sales according to Bloomberg.com. Estimates are that sales were up 53 percent through July of 2012 thanks to a $3.8 billion subsidy. This subsidy is now 88 percent used up and could be gone by the end of the year. Analysts expect a big drop off in the next quarter if this happens.

Another government program that was similiar to the subsidy expired in September 2010. The resulting quarter vehicle deliveries fell 29 percent.

Toyota hopes a cheaper version of the Prius hybrid will keep demand high while Honda is planning to simply offer help when needed to its dealers.

The subsidy was huge for Toyota and Honda that saw government aid go as high as 100,000 yen (about 1,250 U.S. dollars) per vehicle. Now comes news that Japan is considering doubling its national consumption tax. The current plan is to raise the consumption rate tax to 10 percent by 2015. Recently, the nation’s parliament approved an interim rate increase of 8 percent. These two developments could cause catastrophic issues for both automakers.

Most of the bloggers here must be in grade school and grew tired of waiting for that first pube to sprout!

I own Toyotas - good vehicles. But I cannot ignore Japan's insistence on whaling. Whales and porpoises are mentally advanced creatures that Japan and a few other countries are killing, and for what?

Ask Elon Musk, that immigrant from a "Sh!%h&!e country", to build his pickup first. Being a grand businessman that he is, shouldn't it be obvious that pickups are the greatest profit makers? And he NEEDS profits, not just great cars.

@ johnny doe,

You are the racist, look in the mirror you ignorant loser!

Only a liberal points fingers at everything else but themselves and blames others! You are not fooling anybody you crybaby welfare supporter!

Nice fake news and deflection. It only proves your liberal background! Go defend Hillary, CNN or MSNBC and leave the adult world to the adults!

Oxi just got schooled by Johnny. Hahaha

"Only a liberal points fingers at everything else but themselves and blames others!"

Wow you just point out what you and other libtards do constantly, to bad your so mentally ill from the crappy news you been brain washed from watching. It's okay tho, we'll see you in the mentally ward soon sucking even more of the taxes payers money when you finally lose it and join ISIS. Stuipd cuck.

Yeah sure fake news, sad thing is that story was posted on Toyota head quarters website. A site I know you read because I've seen you comment on posting links to your jap scrap taco. Brain dead snow flake. Better ring up Bernie Sanders and tell him you got the burn. HAHAHA!!!!!

@ johnny doe,

Have you ever owned a Toyota?

Do you speak from personal experience?

I speak from over 25 years owning, driving and racing Toyota's! Can you say that? I know more about Toyota trucks than any dumb liberal fake journalist, so I suggest you listen to REAL Toyota owners than following your liberal fake news!

And yet today, Tacoma's still outsell the liberal Colorado by just about 2 to 1 in sales, now why is that? Why do more humans trust a Tacoma over a Colorado? Why?

How much more bytch slapping can you take? Run along back to your liberal bubble, run along with your safety pin liberals!

Funny how GM guys are calling this a sticker job when seems like every other month GM comes out with an "Edition" package and they all wet their pants.
Only Toyota is driven around the world in the most extreme conditions not any of the other three can say that.

You will find a Toyota truck in just about every nation on the planet.

You cannot say that about the Ranger nor Colorado!

I saw Toyota trucks in Italy and Greece on recent adventures, never saw one single Colorado!

In fact our Special Forces still use Toyota trucks on front line combat positions around the world, not GM Colorado's!

Toyota, first trucks to the North Pole and first trucks to cross Antarctica, cannot say Colorado owns anything like that!

Nice to know how educated you are when both of my Tacoma's have Made In USA stamped on their data plates!

Posted by: oxi | Jan 26, 2018 9:40:34 AM

Thank you for your financial contributions to our fine Japanese company.

Thank you all GM buyers for your purchase of Mexican assembled GM trucks.

Nothing is better than producing trucks in Mexico, paying workers very low wages, than charging the American people outrageous prices for our trucks. Your contribution has allowed us to produce outstanding profit margins!

Please continue to support the Wall, so our workers do not migrate to the United States, so we can continue producing cheap trucks in Mexico.

Nice to know how educated you are when both of my Tacoma's have Made In USA stamped on their data plates!......

Thank you for being liberal enough to allow 2 of our fine Japanese designed and engineered products into your life. Many of our Japanese suppliers offer up a big thank you.

@ Toyota HQ, Japan,

Another uneducated liberal...

Tacoma was designed in California and was built by Americans supporting thousands upon thousands of jobs here!

California and Texas belong to the United States you ignorant buffoon!

Tacoma was designed in California ....

Posted by: oxi | Jan 29, 2018 9:47:46 AM

Oh, designed and engineered by liberals. Makes sense.

@ Toyota HQ, Japan,

Liberals drive cars and small suv's, not trucks!

Conservatives (except bailed out welfare GM owners) drive trucks!

"I speak from over 25 years owning, driving and racing Toyota's! Can you say that? I know more about Toyota trucks than any dumb liberal fake journalist, so I suggest you listen to REAL Toyota owners than following your liberal fake news!"

If its fake news why do you go there post links to your rice burner to brag it up?

"And yet today, Tacoma's still outsell the liberal Colorado by just about 2 to 1 in sales,"

Simple they don't have the production capacity to keep up

http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2016/02/gms-coloradocanyon-plant-looks-to-increase-capacity.html

Same thing with jap scrap yota why tunder sales are hurting and more tacos are being made in mexico

https://pickuptrucktalk.com/2016/09/toyota-tacoma-production-expands-mexico/

Better go back to school kid you just got owned!

Liberals drive cars and small suv's, not trucks!

Posted by: oxi | Jan 29, 2018 11:26:27 AM

Oxi, you drive a small foreign brand truck, it may be designed in California, but I assure you the engineering is Japanese. That makes you a foreign supporting liberal.

@ johnny doe,

Still sticking with the production capacity issue like liberals with Russia collusion are we?

Yeah, you are a liberal, full of fake news!

@ johnny doe,

Your racism runs deep with you pathetic liberals!

The only junk out there are GM products, they were so bad nobody was buying them and the company went bankrupt because they failed as a company and ran to mommy and daddy to bail them out.

You can keep supporting loser companies like GM, but please refrain from your blind racist attacks! Texas built my Tacoma, you a f-in problem with Texas? I suggest you pack your bags and leave!

@ Toyota HQ, Japan,

Once again johnny "liberal welfare loving" doe #2:

Texas is a U.S. state and Texans built my Tacoma!

You have a problem with this nation? Maybe you should change your dirty Chinese made underwear before you speak!

If you do not like this nation, please see yourself out with your liberal commies!

@oxi,

"Jap" is simply a shortening of the word Japanese. Also, Japan doesn’t do multiculturalism. And GM builds better trucks.

There you go again. Posting as johnny, then not spelling your GMSRGREAT name correct again. I see you used, johhny,GMSRGREST,GMS and sierra usernames to come in your own defense. You're a weirdo kid. Get some help.....

back to the topic.... Toyota needs to give the Tacoma some attention. It's powertrain is appealing only to Toyota loyalistand even they are not letting Toyota off the hook for it. Not trying to knock it, but they need to wake up because the segment is getting more advanced every year. When the GM killing Ford Ranger comes to market in 12 months, it could put a hurting on a mildly updated, already aging Tacoma as well. Let's hope this off road package is an updated powertrain as well....If not, Ford could very well be the number # fullsize and midsize selling truck brand.
