Following the example of the Nissan Titan/Frontier updating scheme, Toyota is preparing its 2011 Tacoma pickup. We've detailed the main change happening under the skin - a bevy of automatic transmissions replacing discontinued manuals. As for the outside, PickupTrucks.com has posted the above photo of a pre-production Taco. Can you spot the difference? That's right! The two-bar grille is now a one-bar grille! You know what they say about messing with perfection. The midsize truck will appear later this year starting at $16,365, ringing the bell for $27,525 at the high end.

        That's what I was going to say. You would have to change more than just the grill to make them look good.

      Its great to see a company that can keep a truck geared towards women alive. Bravo!
        • 4 Years Ago
        wow, see a lot of these trucks on the road, not many of them are driven by women. Besides, I thought your generation is being brought up to respect women, not belittle them.

        Grow up.

      I love me a Taco but.. Please please please have the revised/uptmillion times better 4.0L from the 4Runner, 40 more ponies would be welcome. current truck is a smidge underpowered..

        What they really need is the 6speed transmission and a 4.10 or 4.30 axle gear. Then, if they want to throw in the Dual VVTi motor, that's just gravy.

      Now change the headlights because they completely ruin the front end of this truck.

      Yawn, still an ugly, p.o.s. Toyota.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Looks wise not much different.

      New isn't always better. Kudos to Toyota for not messing with the perfect-sized truck.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The Tacoma is IMO the best looking truck in its class. However, the fact that you have to get the crew cab version to get a 4X4 sucks.
