If your car-buying plans need to account for future success at the jobsite, towing to the lake and dominating the highways that stretch across Minnesota, you need to find yourself a very versatile and tough truck. We suggest you make our Toyota dealership near Brainerd, MN, your shopping destination, because we've got the perfect vehicle in mind: the 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is the pickup that does it all. Mighty in design and performance alike, it's the perfect tool to have at your disposal when the going gets tough. The 2016 Tacoma has a brand-new look, one with sculpted character lines and brawny fenders, and it was built with high-strength steel, making it stronger and lighter in weight. If you peek under the hood you'll find the heart of a lion -- this pickup can be equipped with one of two robust engines. The standard 2.7-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine generates 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, giving you enough muscle to complete most missions.

Upgrade to the 2.5-liter direct-injection Atkinson-cycle V6 powerplant, however, and you're looking at up to 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. When you hit the road with that kind of power, the road stays down for the count. You can also add helpful available features to your Tacoma, including push-button start, the Entune Audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control and leather-trimmed seats.
Safety is just as important as outright performance on the jobsite and on the trail, and Toyota didn't forget that when they constructed this truck. The standard Star Safety System has you covered from all angles, merging Vehicle-Stability Control, anti-lock brakes, Brake-Assist technology and more for the ultimate in driver protection. Optional safety additions to your 2016 Tacoma include a rear parking-assist sonar system, rear cross-traffic alert, an electronically controlled locking rear differential and more. The TRD trim even includes Off-Road Crawl Control for automatically modulating throttle and brakes at low speeds as you concentrate on traversing tricky terrain.
