As the many Toyota models, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma will appear in many trim levels – SR, SR5, TRD, Off Road and Limited. The basic model will drive on small 16 inch wheels, with optional fixed and adjustable tie-downs and cargo bed rail system, which can be replaced with 16-inch black alloy wheels in a higher level, fog lights body-color over-fenders auto-dimming rearview mirror (V6 models only). But, as always, every trim level has their own version of equipment, like the TRD Sport model, for example, has LED daytime running lights, unique exterior trim (including a hood scoop), 17-inch alloy wheels, sport-tuned shock absorbers while TRD Sport options include a Premium and Technology package that adds automatic headlights, a sunroof (Double Cab only), Bilstein shock absorbers and chin spoiler delete (to improve the truck’s off-road ability) etc.
