Default PICS: Here comes the 2012 Toyota Tacoma

The boys over at Pickup Trucks found a new Toyota Commercial that
shows the new 2012 Toyota Tacoma in all it's glory. The new
refreshed model goes to dealers in October of this year.

Also a side by side that shows the differences between the outgoing

Toyota has release some new info
and pics on the 2012 Tacoma

2012 Toyota Tacoma Debuts Restyled Exterior, Interior and New Entune
Multimedia; Still the #1 Selling Compact Pickup

• Refreshed Front-End Design and Updated Interior
• New Audio Systems with Bluetooth®, Satellite Radio and USB
• Double Cab V6 Offers New Display Audio System
• New Available Heavy-Duty All-Weather Flooring

The Toyota Tacoma, still the best-selling compact pickup truck in the
U.S. market by a wide margin, offers a restyled exterior look and a
redesigned, upgraded interior in all models for 2012. New changes add
comfort, usability and audio/infotainment performance.

Toyota sold more than 106,000 Tacoma models for 2010, outselling its
nearest competitor by nearly two-to-one. For 2012, Tacoma shows a
fresh face with a redesigned hood, grille, headlamps and front
bumper, among other changes. Inside, customers will find a new
center-instrument panel design with a revised gauge cluster, along
with a new steering wheel. A redesigned center stack adds new air
conditioner/heater controls and power point locations.

The 2012 Tacoma interior also gets a new look with a black
high-contrast center console, switch plate covers, dash and upper
door trim, while the SR5 grade features a new seat fabric design.
With owners using their trucks for hard work and hard play, Tacoma
offers new heavy-duty all-weather flooring in the 2012 Tacoma Access
and Double Cab models, while the more specialized TRD Sport and
Off-Road models offer new water-resistant fabric protection seats.
The TRD Sport Package adds side mirrors with turn-signal lamps for
2012, as well as available chrome-clad 18-inch wheels.

Details that add up to more comfort and function include a larger,
higher-resolution display for the available back-up camera (3.3-inch
vs. 2.4-inch), a new temperature gauge, available rear-view mirror
with compass and HomeLink, vanity lamps added to sun visors, an
additional overhead storage compartment and, on Access Cab models, a
new rear-console storage box. All models now feature two front-deck
"D" rings for added versatility.

The 2012 Tacoma is available in a wide variety of configurations and
models, and this focus on customer choice has been instrumental in
the vehicle's continued market leadership. Many models offer a choice
between four-cylinder and V6 engines, and 2WD and 4WD drivetrains.

The Toyota Tacoma has been repeatedly recognized for its outstanding
value and reliability. Tacoma was named "Most Dependable Midsize
Pickup" in the J.D. Power & Associates 2011 Vehicle
Dependability Study, and Intellichoice called it a "2011 Best
Overall Value" in the compact pickup segment.

New Audio Choices for 2012
Toyota has upgraded audio options for some 2012 Tacoma models. Access
Cab models offer a new available six-speaker system with an AM/FM/
Satellite Radio-capable head unit with a single-disc CD player.
Built-in Bluetooth® allows hands-free phone, and a USB port enables
connection of an iPod®, MP3 player or flash drive with music files.

The DoubleCab V6 models offer a more advanced display audio system
with today's most in-demand connectivity features. These include
navigation, Toyota Entune™ services, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (with
90-day trial subscription), HD Radio with iTunes® tagging and
text/e-mail-to-voice. This premium infotainment system plays through
a JBL® GreenEdge audio system with seven speakers. GreenEdge
technology helps reduce fuel consumption by lowering the electric
power demand on the vehicle.

The Toyota Entune system is a collection of popular mobile
applications and data services, with three years of complimentary
access. Once a smart phone is connected to the vehicle using
Bluetooth wireless technology or a USB cable, Entune's features are
operated using the vehicle's controls or, for some services, by voice
recognition. Entune includes Bing™ and Pandora®; real-time info
including traffic, weather, fuel prices, sports and stocks. Apps
available in spring 2012 at no charge include iHeartRadio,
MovieTickets.com and OpenTable®. See toyota.com/entune for details.

Performance
The 2012 Tacoma line offers two engines: a 2.7-liter Dual Overhead Cam
(DOHC) four-cylinder that produces 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft. of
torque, and a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 that provides 236 horsepower with 266
lb-ft. of torque. In both engines, variable valve timing with
intelligence (VVT-i) provides strong low-end and mid-range torque.

An Electronic Throttle Control System with intelligence helps optimize
performance and fuel economy. The V6 can be teamed with either a
six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission.
Four-cylinder models offer a choice between a five-speed manual and a
four-speed automatic transmission. When equipped with a V6 Tow
Package, Access Cab models boast a maximum tow capacity of up to
6,500 pounds.

X-Runner: A Unique Sport Truck
The Tacoma X-Runner performance truck, unique in the entire compact
truck category, returns for 2012 and features the 4.0-liter V6 engine
with a specially tuned chassis. Featuring a six-speed manual
transmission, the X-Runner can accelerate from 0-to-60 mph in less
than seven seconds. Just as impressive, the Tacoma X-Runner can
achieve lateral acceleration in excess of 0.9-g – comparable to many
performance cars. The X-Runner's Access Cab design incorporates a
full body kit, a hood scoop and integrated fog lamps. The color-keyed
monochromatic exterior comes in three colors – Barcelona Red, Black
Sand Pearl and Nautica Blue Metallic, which is new for 2012.

To take performance even higher, TRD offers a 4.0-liter V6
supercharger kit capable of generating 304 horsepower and 334
lbs.-ft. of torque also available for other Tacoma V6 models). The
design uses Eaton Roots-type rotating components in a one-piece
supercharger plenum/manifold casting. The supercharger is fully
warranted for up to five years or 60,000 miles or the remainder of
the powertrain warranty at the time of installation when installed by
a Toyota dealer.

T|X Packages for the Hardcore Pickup Fan
The T|X and T|X Pro Packages, available in conjunction with the TRD
Off-Road Package, add a concept-truck look to the Tacoma V6 Access
Cab or V6 Double Cab PreRunner and 4x4 models. The T|X Package gives
the Tacoma a menacing look and additional sportiness with TRD 16-inch
black alloy bead-lock wheels and 265/70R16 BFGoodrich Rugged Trail
tires. Black tube-side steps, a stainless steel exhaust tip and
unique exterior graphics give the T|X the aesthetics of a custom
truck.

The T|X Pro is the performance-oriented package by also including a
TRD cat-back performance exhaust system that gives the V6 a throatier
sound and a bit more power. The T|X and T|X Pro Packages offer a
strong value compared to offering the contents as separate
accessories, especially considering that they are covered under
Toyota's standard three year/36,000-mile comprehensive vehicle
limited warranty and can be financed.

The TRD Off-Road Package underlying both T|X editions provides a
carefully tuned balance of off-road performance and on-road handling.
Chassis modifications include an electronic locking rear differential,
progressive-rate front springs, specially tuned Bilstein shock
absorbers, a 28-mm front stabilizer bar and BFGoodrich Rugged Trail
tires. Fog lamps top off the package for a tough, sporty appearance.
Both the TRD Off-Road Package and TRD Sport Package have a 400W/115V
powerpoint in the bed; sport seats with adjustable lumbar support and
unique fabric, and an overhead console with a compass and outside
temperature display. Double Cab and Access Cab models also offer a
back-up monitor system.

Safety
Standard on all Tacoma models is the Toyota Star Safety System™, which
includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), an
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution
(EBD), Brake Assist (BA), and Smart Stop brake override technology.
Every Tacoma has standard three-point seatbelts for all seating
positions, front seat-mounted side airbags, roll-sensing side curtain
airbags (including a cutoff switch), and a front advanced dual-stage
airbag system. A front passenger cutoff switch is standard on Access
Cab models.

All Access Cab and Double Cab models feature standard active headrests
for the front seats, which move up and forward almost instantly in the
event of certain rear-end collisions to help reduce the distance
between the occupant's head and the headrest.

Capability, Handling and Ride
The TRD Off-Road Package available for 4x4 V6 automatic models
includes Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Downhill Assist Control
(DAC). HAC operates by independently controlling the brakes at each
wheel as needed to help prevent the vehicle from rolling backward or
slipping sideways during a transition from a stopped position to
climbing a grade. An Automatic Limited-slip Differential (Auto-LSD),
which uses brake intervention to help reduce tire slippage at the
rear wheels, is standard on all Tacoma models.

DAC uses engine braking to regulate downhill speed and independently
control the brakes at each wheel to help improve directional control.
DAC automatically de-activates if the driver depresses the brake or
accelerator pedals, presses the DAC button, or shifts into neutral.
TRD Off-Road Packages feature a locking rear differential that can be
activated by a switch in the cab. An electronic rear differential is
available on 4x4 models and the PreRunner.

Comfort and Convenience
The well-equipped 4x2 Regular Cab model features standard air
conditioning; a full-size spare tire; AM/FM CD four-speaker sound
system; tachometer; digital clock; two instrument panel powerpoints
with a lighter; dome lamp; and rear mudguards. Regular Cab 4x4 models
with the automatic transmission feature standard bucket seats. Tacoma
Access Cab and Double Cab models add more standard features,
including power windows and door locks, bucket seats and a center
console. In Double Cab models, power mirrors and driver seat
adjustable lumbar support are also standard.

Options
For both Access and Double Cab models, the available option
combinations are built on five core packages. The SR5 Package bundles
styling and comfort features, including color-keyed overfenders and
front bumper, chrome grille surround and chrome rear bumper,
intermittent wipers and upgraded interior features and trim,
including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic transmission
shift lever.

The TRD Sport Package is road-focused and features its own specific
suspension tuning and lower-profile 265/65 R17 tires on 17-inch alloy
wheels. This package also gives Tacoma a sporty look with fog lamps,
hood scoop, TRD graphics and color-keyed rear bumper, mirrors, grille
surround and door handles.

The available dealer-installed TRD Big Brake system was developed by
Toyota Technical Center and TRD engineers. Engineered to provide
effective braking performance under sustained heavy use, the Big
Brake system dramatically improves pedal feel. The system uses 13 x
1.25-inch semi-floating vented rotors with directional internal fins,
forged aluminum four-piston fixed calipers, larger pads with high
coefficient-of-friction material and braided steel lines.

Exterior Design
The 2012 Tacoma has a new look from the A-pillar forward, with new
front grilles on all grades. In addition to a new hood, Tacoma also
receives new headlamps, new upper and lower bumper areas, including
an updated fog lamp housing.

Tacoma configurations are based on three cab types: Regular Cab,
Access Cab, and the four-door Double Cab. The rear doors on Access
Cab models open to 80 degrees to give passengers easy ingress and
egress. Bold overfenders distinguish PreRunner and 4x4 models.
PreRunner models combine the 4x2 drivetrain with the 4x4's raised
riding stance and styling. Double Cab models offer a roof rack system
with crossbars that deploy from the roof rails.

Tacoma Regular Cab models are built on a 109.6-inch wheelbase; 4x2
Access Cab models (including PreRunner and 4x4) ride on a 127.4-inch
wheelbase. The Tacoma Double Cab with the standard five-foot bed
shares the 127.4-inch wheelbase, while the Double Cab long-bed models
use a 140.6-inch wheelbase.

The Tacoma Regular Cab and Access Cab models feature a 73.5-inch-long
bed. The Double Cab is available with a choice of a 60.3-inch bed or
the 73.5-inch bed. The Tacoma's composite inner bed is made from a
sheet-molded composite (SMC) deck and tough and durable walls that
are 10 percent lighter than steel. The bed deck features two-tier
loading and an integrated deck-rail utility with four standard
adjustable tie-down cleats. The rails are compatible with Genuine
Toyota Accessories, including cargo bed cross bars, a fork-mount bike
rack, and diamond-plate storage boxes. An available 115V/400W
powerpoint further extends the bed's utility.

Interior Design
A redesigned instrument gauge panel lends a sporty look in all models
for 2012. The center console (standard on Access Cab and Double Cab
models) flows into the instrument panel for a unified appearance. The
console integrates three cupholders, two of which can accommodate
extra-large containers.

Tacoma's interior provides durability and comfort with high-grade
fabric and generous standard equipment. Sound absorption material in
the headliner and behind the rear seats, along with insulating
carpeting, help to provide a quiet cabin. All Tacoma models provide
dual bottle holders in driver's- and passenger's-side doors. Audio
controls are mounted high for easy access.

Higher-grade models feature fabric-covered sun visors and an overhead
console with map lights, as well as compartments for sunglasses and a
garage door opener. Interior storage is maximized in Access Cab models
with fold up rear seats and underseat storage. Double Cab models
feature 60/40 split rear seats with adjustable headrests and
under-seat storage.

Limited Warranty
Toyota's 36-month/36,000 mile basic new-vehicle warranty applies to
all components other than normal wear and maintenance items.
Additional 60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles
and corrosion with no mileage limitation. The Camry will also come
standard with Toyota Care, a complimentary plan covering normal
factory-scheduled maintenance and 24-hour roadside assistance for two
years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.

includes the anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic Brake-force
Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Vehicle Stability Control
(VSC), Traction Control (TRAC) and Smart Stop Technology.
