A trusted source informed that Toyota will start providing a direct injection engine in the Tacoma in 2013, like a 2014 product version.
This is a wished step, as news of the brand new Tacoma engine has been spread by PickupTrucks.com and TruckTrend.com for months now (in addition to TacomaHQ.com and TundraHeadquarters.com).
However, there still has not been clear information about its specifications though most hope that it will come with a V6 and the rest hope with a 4-cylinder engine. We are only able to hope that the information of the specifications can be known soon. In line with the trustworthy of those sources in the past, it’s feasible that both 4cylinder and 6 cylinder are going to be a new feature in 2014.
When the brand new engine is definitely the 4cylinder, it’s expected that the standard automated transmission will be a new 5speed. However, for its redesign, it seems that it needs more time, meaning that though the new product will be provided with a new engine, the design will stay the same.
In other rumors, the Prius Pickup we’ve discussed upon TundraHeadquarters.com seems to be more unlikely than ever at this point – at least as a Prius. Toyota has implied that the Prius brand will not be modified in all its elements soon. Unluckily, this statement is also echoed by our sources.
Nevertheless, the good thing is that Scion gets the pickup truck. In line with the Rav4 system, the Scion pick-up is going to be an entry-level option to the Tacoma with a unibody frame as well as FWD (along with AWD option) being released in 2014. When it comes to hybrid version, it will likely be a regular old Toyota.
The year of 2013 and 12014 seems to be the great year of the Toyota trucks, with a Scion pickup, the remodeled Tundra, as well as up-to-date Tacoma engines, which are all released almost at the same time.
