By that logic why can my 1.8l honduh pull a 5k trailer up a grade?


(Assuming the engine can do it)

I was thinking the same thing. Rear discs would make a big difference in stopping power.

DISC BRAKES \/


Doesn't Tacoma have best stopping power in its class?

This dumb disc brake fad has hit the road bike scene as well. I don't get it. Which exposes another double standard....."i hate it when trucks have car attributes but why doesn't my truck have disc brakes"

They certainly make a noticeable difference. Just because the Tacoma may have the best stopping power in it's class, doesn't mean it couldn't be better. Maybe not so much with an empty bed, but with decent amount of weight in the bed or while towing...

But if it's just a fad, I'm sure we'll be going back to front drums soon enough.

The Colorados had major engine issues in the past, I'm not sure if they've fixed them. The body looks 10x better than the old ones at least, still wouldn't buy one. If I was interested in just aesthetics I would have bought a Dodge. :P

The third engine comes from a group V6 engine to a 3.5 – liter engine that produces 220 hp and 260 Nm of torque.
The fourth and most powerful engine is a 4.2 – liter V6 with 250 hp and 280 Nm of torque.
The engines are paired with several types of transmission, as follows: 5 – speed manual and automatic 6 – speed manual and automatic.
See... there's your first sign that it's bullshit.

FOUR different engines with only 20hp difference between the two 4-cylinder engines?

FOUR different transmissions?

The new 2.7 is 190hp and 200nm?
The current 2.7 puts out more torque than that... 200mn is only 147ft/lbs, the 2.7 puts out 180.
Likewise, the "new" 4.2 will be 280mn... that's only 206ft/lb... the current 4.0 puts out 266

Bullshit.

Four wheel drive, maybe... AWD is very, very different.

That's 20,000 pounds.

Even the GM Duramax 3500 can't haul that.

A brand new 4.2L engine that has minimal improvement in hp and torque over the current 4.0....plus the pic of the interior remarkably looks like the current Tundra....color me skeptical

Ya...
4 and 5 for the 2.7, and 5 and 6 for the 4.0... not 5 and 6.

There's no logical pairing of the options listed.

Oh no... the new 4.2 puts out LESS torque than the current 4.0!

It's listed in n/m... metric. 280nm is only 206 ft/lbs.
That's a 30% drop from the current 4.0

It'll happen. 2nd Gen will be 10 years old for 2015, so I would expect a redesign either then or 2016.
1st Gen came out in 95.5, facelift in 2001, and replaced in 2005.
2nd Gen had a facelift in 2012, so we can expect it within 2 model years...

As far as WHAT it will be... nobody knows outside of Japan.
If the redesign is happening in 2015, then there is a shop working on what will be revealed at auto shows this spring, and a few test mules are being built.

We'll see spy photos of test mules months before we get anything as detailed as that article.

It's a truck.

Personally, I think all of the current full-sized trucks except for the Titan are fugly.

Old Colorado was nice, but the new Colorado (and likely new Tacoma) has a front end designed to reduce the potential for injury to the occupants of a compact car should the truck t-bone it.
