2022 Toyota Tacoma Concept Canada – The popular mid-size truck is reserved for the North American market. Besides the United States, the Japanese manufacturer also offers it in Canada. Practically, you will not find a notable difference between these two versions, but things can change in the next year. As you probably know, the coming model is about to come up with interesting updates, starting from slight visual revisions, upgraded interior, new technology features etc. It looks like the 2022 Toyota Tacoma Concept Canada is about to come up with one more novelty. Rumors about a diesel version are to circulate quite some time. It seems the new version will not hit the American market.
2022 Toyota Tacoma Concept Canada Front View
However, some reports indicate that it will happen in Canada. Still, keep in mind that we still wait for the official confirmation, so take the following paragraphs with a dose of a reserve.
Of course, we need to start this 2022 Toyota Tacoma diesel with the engine. So far, this truck is in offer with Toyota’s two well-known petroleenhede. Base Models features a 2.7-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with approximately 160 horsepower, while a higher pruning comes with a well-known 3.5-litre V6 unit, which produces around 277 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are large in terms of reliability and overall performances.
However, fuel economy is not their strongest point. Moreover, the closest competitor, Chevy Colorado offers a diesel version for years, while some of the upcoming truck versions will offer with oil burners as well. All of this clearly indicates that the Japanese manufacturer will do the same.
Look no further than HiLux
Although we still wait to hear something of the officials, we have no doubt about which engine will be selected for the 2022 Toyota Tacoma Concept Canada. Of course, it is a famous 2.8-litre turbodiesel, which powers the legendary HiLux, as well as some of more Toyota SUVs, like Fortuner, land Cruiser Prado etc. This is probably the most advanced diesel engine that is Toyota to offer at the moment. It is rated at about 180 horsepower and 330 pounds-feet of torque. With such an amount of strength, you can count on pretty strong performances, especially in terms of drag capacity, which should be better compared to the V6 gasoline version. More importantly, fuel economy will improve substantially, as some reports indicate a combined consumption of more than 25 miles per liter.
2022 Toyota Tacoma Concept Canada
Unlike a new engine, the 2022 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada should not be too much differences compared to petrol versions. We recently saw a nice number of surprises and the 2022 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada will have all of them. In the first of all, there is slightly revised styling, which includes some new elements on the front. There is a new Grill, with a new form and new mesh pattern, as well as a slightly revised buffer and new LED Lighting. Other than that, things are pretty much the axis in the model that fossilitated in 2015.
It is also good to mention that the DRUM BID-badged models are also updated, with some mechanical surprises. However, we still cannot say whether a diesel engine will be offered in these versions or not.
A nice part of the interior updates
Besides new aesthetics, the recent Update also has a number of nice interior updates. The first thing to be mentioned is that a Power-adjustable driver’s seat is finally available. We also see a nice number of technology surprises. For example, there is a new touchscreen, as well as a new infotainment system. Many will be happy to hear that smartphone goodies such as Apple CarPlay and Android motor are finally in the offer.
