    Co-worker just informed me he saw the new 2016 Tacoma on I-85 in Charlotte this morning. It was white. It was a double cab. It was the only one on the truck, along with Camrys and Corollas

    Probably going to a dealer for a show and tell session like the orange TRD we have documents in pics in this forum. Charlotte area Taco owners check with your dealers to see who's going to have it on the lot.

    seems legit - I sat through a BoA 500 it was terrible... adding another 100 would have killed me :annoyed:

    The nascar all star race is this weekend in Charlotte. My guess is it's headed to the speedway area.

    Looks like #6 beat me to it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some are spotted driving around without camo now. A few months of before the Colorado/Canyon launch I saw a Canyon driving on the Interstate near where I live in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

    A guy in my neighborhood had a Colorado parked in his driveway before they were released. He has a new vehicle of various makes with manufacturing plates on them about every 2 weeks.

    Funny you mention the tan(Quicksand) color. The picture of that color under the lights at a shown it looks terrible. Kind of yellow. Yuck! But pictures of the Tacoma outside is the Quicksand color look really nice IMO. So much so I am actually thinking about going with that color.We will have to see what other colors become available on the Gen 3 Tacoma before I will know for sure.

    I haven't seen an orange taco. Is it a metallic? The F150 Bronze Fire Metallic is really nice.

    It's the red colored one
    Look in the thread "new tacoma spotted in the great white North" it looks red but those who have seen it in person say orange.

    Exactly. Ditch the chrome. Bring the Satoshi.
