Toyota#039;s secret plan for the to match the new Chevy Colorado

being gifted the small market by Chevy, Ford and Ram for the Toyota Tacoma is suddenly way the times. Here is Toyota#039;s plan to keep it viable.

For a time now Toyota has had the small market all to itself with its Tacoma. Each year Chevy, Ford, and Ram sat out this Toyota sold over a thousand of the pickups. Last it sold 160,000 Tacomas. In you need a gauge of how many that is, it about the number of Corvettes, and Camaros that sold last year if you added them all up together. think the Tacoma is just sort of joke? Life was for the Toyo Taco, but things are to get more difficult. Chevrolet is back the Colorado small and the Canyon from GMC will of be its shadow. Time for a big-time in the Tacoma if Toyota wants to enjoying those huge numbers.

We think Toyota will an all-new 2.0 liter turbo in the that will make horsepower than the top engine now. That engine the aging 4.0 liter V6 with 236 The current four cylinder and six Tacoma engines both 21 MPG highway ratings, and to put it mildly, is going to be uncompetitive going in this segment. Chevy is focusing on MPG in its marketing literature and a diesel, partly so that it can a big MPG number to put at the top of adverts that “Best in class MPG!” As our article discussed, Chevy is all stretching the truth. In this it won’t even have to.

Although Toyota has not commented to us this, we are pretty good at at the crystal ball. We nailed the RC and RC F models including the engine before anyone else, and some other recent predictions making us all kinds of

A new 2.0 liter turbo is for sure to Toyota crossovers, appearing fall in the new Lexus NX 250T. a power, luxury version of the RAV 4. This is not speculation, but fact Lexus corporate communications. has also confirmed the engine migrate through the Toyota Toyota will season the with this spicy the only question is what year? We suspect it will be next year as a 2016 and be on sale early fall of The new Colorado won’t be in full swing until later year.

Frankly, this is no fan of small turbocharged motors. that is the trend since it the most of the EPA test cycle. The 2.0 turbo will not match the or smoothness of the Chevy 3.6 liter V6, is just a gem of an engine, but it will Toyota to have an acceptable in the segment with decent That leads us to our next guess.

We also expect that will build a limited of Tacomas with the Toyota drivetrain now found in the Avalon. It is designated “300h” when a motor, for example in the Lexus ES It is a four cylinder, but with its motor assist it generates power in big vehicles not dramatically than the Tacoma. Chevy has practical it could use that match the MPG of this drivetrain. a Tacoma with 36 MPG city and 31 It would be unique. It would not to anyone who wants a real That would not be the point. sells a LOT of hybrids to municipalities and fleets. It could leverage vehicle. The only challenge in for Toyota is adopting the front drive hybrid configuration to the Tacoma platform.

The new Colorado looks great, it is to be offered with an awesome and Chevy knows a lot about and how to sell them. If Toyota to keep the Tacoma relevant it have some test running around someplace blown four-bangers right
