The Tacoma is so dependable in terms of performance, features, power, and engine capabilities that it has become the number one seller for mid-sized trucks for 2011. The all-new 2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport has many Tacoma fans excitingly anticipating the release of this truck as it is set to be the best Tacoma ever designed. With numerous upgrades such as suspension, all-new exterior and interior design, and engine power, it is almost certain that the 2012 Tacoma TRD Sport will be the number one selling mid-sized truck for 2012. Here are more reasons why.

  1. Stable Exterior

The 2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport is built as a vehicle that can tow/haul the heaviest of equipment with ease. This is possible because the vehicle is built with numerous heavy duty material of the highest quality. To support the vehicle are alloy wheels with chrome suspension and high quality shock absorbers that work great for off-road driving. To aid in numerous driving conditions, Toyota has outfitted the Tacoma's side mirrors with turn signal indicators to provide more visibility when changing lanes. Moving to the front bumper, Toyota has also made major changes as the front bumper grille has a more pronounced look with LED headlights and fog lamps located beneath. The bumper also has a nice protective body kit to provide protection to the bumper.

  1. Spacious Interior

One of the things Tacoma vehicles are well-known for is their unbelievably spacious interiors. The cabin size of the Tacoma is large enough to comfortably seat 5 plus-sized adults plus a small child. The seats inside the vehicle's cabin have all been outfitted with leather stitching and high quality fabrics that soften the chairs substantially. In addition, the rear seats in the back have chairs that can be reclined to provide more space. This leads us to another interior upgrade; storage. The new Tacoma TRD has an almost ridiculous number of storage compartments where users can safely place their belongings. For those wondering, the Tacoma has 12 cup holders inside the cabin. That is more than most full-sized trucks can offer.

  1. Powerful Engine

Another reason why Tacoma fans are excited for this year's version is because the engine has been upgraded with more power. The Tacoma TRD is now equipped with a standard 4-liter V6 engine capable of providing 240 horsepower with 270 pound feet of torque. With this power, the Tacoma is able to haul heavy duty objects of up to 6,500lbs. This means that the truck can haul a medium sized boat or a medium sized trailer with substantial ease.

  1. Bed Space

One fact about all Tacoma trucks is that they always seem to contain a lot of Bed Space. The Tacoma is available in short bed or long bed and both of these designs provide a comfortable amount of room. The long bed version contains almost 6 feet of bed space while the short bed version provides a relatively, yet spacious enough bed space. To make matters even better, there are numerous features located in the Tacoma trunk such as a power outlet that can be used to power household appliances on an outdoor trip.

  1. Tasty Tech Features

The Tacoma does not lack in terms of tech features. In fact, it provides just as many features as it does have space! Highlighting the vehicle tech features is a formidable entertainment system in the vehicle's center console. Highlighting the features in the entertainment system are:

  • In-dash CD Player

Here users are able to play their favorite CD's and MP3 formatted CDs.

  • Auxiliary Port and Jack

Alllows users to connect mobile devices such as MP3 players/iPods, smart phones/iPhones, and tablets which they can synchronize with the cars entertainment system. Here, users can access numerous applications, browse online, and even watch their favorite TV shows and movies.

  • Bluetooth Connectivity

The entertainment system also allows users to pair their mobile devices via Bluetooth Connectivity. On the steering of the vehicle are numerous control buttons where the Bluetooth connection can make outgoing phone calls through voice commands.

Rounding up the tech features for the 2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport is a practical backup camera that transmits video feed of the vehicle's rear end. The feed appears on the driver's side mirrors to aid when parking the vehicle in reverse. In addition, the rear view mirror also has some tasty tech in the form of a home-link system that users can use to access their garage doors at home.

With an all new design, improved vehicle power, and an amazing amount of features, it is not a wonder why many Tacoma fans are excited to test the new Tacoma. If you are one of them, visit your nearest Toyota dealership and test one of these trucks as soon as you possibly can.
