2012 Toyota Tacoma Test Drive & Truck Review

http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/tacoma/2012/?id=32972 Toyota has been selling compact pick-up trucks here in the U.S. ever since 1968, and in 1995 the Toyota Tacoma made its debut. Fast forward to 2012 and the Toyota Tacoma is the best selling compact truck in the U.S. by a fair margin. And for the 2012 model year the Tacoma has gotten a nice little refresh. On the outside the Tacoma sports a new front grill, hood, updated headlights, and new bumpers. On the inside some new additions are a sporty gauge cluster, new trim, seat fabrics, all weather flooring, and more. The base price for the 2012 Toyota Tacoma is $16,875 with the opt of the line model selling for $27,835. The Tacoma comes in many different trims and configurations. There is a an X-Runner edition that features many sport truck options including a lowered stance, wider wheels, and ground effects. On the opposite end of the spectrum there are many off-roading trims available like the PreRunner and T|X Pro package which adds a lifted suspension and rear locking differential. Of course you can get the Tacoma in a variety of cab configurations like the regular standard cab, the access cab, and the double cab. You can get the bed length sized short or long. On the 2012 Toyota Tacoma there are 2 different engine sizes: a smaller more fuel efficient 4-cylinder and a larger more powerful V-6. The 2.7 liter 4-cylinder engine makes 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is good for a truck at 21 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. The larger engine is a 4.0 liter V-6 that produces a healthy 236 horsepower and 266 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is rated at 16 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway.

The Tacoma is a Top 10 truck because it's built on a very solid foundation. 7) Nissan Titan http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/nissan/titan/?id=32972 Nissan was the first company to incorporate a 300 horsepower engine into their pickups.

The Sierra HD is one of the toughest trucks on this Top 10 list. 2) Toyota Tundra http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tundra/?id=32972 If there is one word to describe Toyota's commitment to making the best pickup truck in America: it's relentless. Toyota knew that in order to compete with the big 3, it needed to not only build a great truck, but they needed to build it here on American soil. Built in San Antonio Texas, the Tundra offers the perfect balance between drivability and capability. 1) Ford F-150 EcoBoost http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/ford/f-150/?id=32972 Ford's EcoBoost engine technology consists of direct injection and twin-turbochargers have proven effective in the line-up of cars, and now we find this engine making its way onto more F-150 trucks.

http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/fj-cruiser/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser is designed to go off-road. Everything about this SUV from the exterior design, to the engine, and 4WD system were designed to handle anything you can throw at it. Toyota kept with the retro styling theme and created a vehicle that is part truck and part SUV.

Base price on the 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser is $26,115. The FJ Cruiser is powered by a 4.0 liter V-6 engine featuring Dual VVT-I technology that produces 250 horsepower and 271 lb-ft. of torque.

The automatic transmission is actually more fuel efficient netting the netting the FJ Cruiser 17 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. The chassis is built for trail duty.

2012 Nissan Titan PRO-4X Test Drive & Truck Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/titan/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Nissan Titan PRO-4X was designed to go off-road and this truck is the answer to Ford's F-150 Raptor. The base model full-sized Nissan Titan costs $28,160 with the PRO-4X model tested here coming in at $37,910. But this is the top of the line model that is decked out with all the bells and whistles. This price point is still $7k-$8k lower than that of the Raptor. The Nissan intended to produce a worth adversary to that of the full-sized American pick-up truck. And the Titan has a bunch of great features going for it. First off the 2012 Nissan Titan is one of the best looking trucks on the market. The styling is pretty aggressive and the Color (dubbed Red Alert Metallic) in this video looks spectacular. The Titan PRO-4X rides on beefy BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A tires that are wrapped around nice looking 18-inch alloy rims. The PRO-4X is only available in 4WD which is a good thing because if you are buying this truck, you better intend to take it off-road. Some of the other standard features that make this truck tough are the added skid plates, Rancho shock absorbers, and the lower final gear ratio. The 2012 Nissan Titan PRO-4X is powered by a 5.7 liter V-8 engine that produces 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 12 MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Test Drive & Pickup Truck Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/silverado-1500/2014/?id=32972 The third generation Chevrolet Silverado is here! Practically everything on this full-sized truck has been redesigned, refreshed, and updated. The exterior looks tough, the engines are now more fuel efficient, and the interior is packed full of new technology. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is as capable as ever when it comes to hauling and towing; but now with all the updates and upgrades this pickup truck exceeds all expectations. Base price for the Work Truck Crew Cab model is $31,715 while the top of the line 2LZ 4x4 Crew Cab costs $43,465. When it comes to the full-sized pickup truck game in America there are a handful of contenders but the overwhelming giants in this segment are Ford and Chevrolet. Last year the Silverado sold over 400k units and Chevrolet hopes that the new 2014 model which is bigger and bolder will enjoy the same amount of success. Up front the new 2014 Silverado has a big massive chrome grille that is squared off. The truck looks a lot like the Sierra front end from the third generation. Under the hood there have been massive changes to the engine offerings. While the displacement is relatively the same, the 3 different displacement EcoTec3 engine choices now feature direct injection, variable valve timing, and active fuel management. The result is more horsepower, more torque, and better fuel economy. The engine specs are as follows: 4.3 liter V-6 makes 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft. of torque 5.3 liter V-8 makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft. or torque 6.2 liter V-8 numbers have not been released The fuel economy figures are also unknown since this pickup truck is brand new. On the inside, the 2014 Chevy Silverado interior has been given a thorough update and now ranks as the best interior in the full-sized truck category. Higher quality materials and attention to design were the first step. There is a 4" information screen located in the gauge cluster. The steering wheel has controls mounted on it. There is an 8" screen in the center stack that comes equipped with MyLink and the associated apps. Chevrolet has really upped the ante and the seats are yet another bonus. Pricing on the Silverado is about the same as the outbound model from last year. There are 3 cab configurations including the: regular cab, double car, and crew cab. There are 2 bed sizes also ranging from 6' to a 6.5' bed. No matter which trim you pick, the Silverado is a great truck.

New 2012 Toyota Tacoma
http://www.facebook.com/TheWorldnewCars Judging by the attention it's been getting lately, the refreshed 2012 Toyota Tacoma that's been revealed by the automaker will see its market success at the top of the compact pickup market secured in full for coming years. To update the looks, the new facelifted model sports a new hood, grille, headlights and front bumper among other minor details that should be enough to attract customers to this workhorse. Changes have also been made to the interior, where the Enture system that made its debut on the Prius V has been introduced. It allows for voice, touch screen and steering wheel mounted controls of the audio and infotainment systems. In similar fashion to Ford's SYNC systems, it provides the latest info on the weather, sports, stocks and even the price of a tank of fuel. The revised instrument panel and controls offer a more high-end feel and overall better quality. Under the bonnet, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V6 engines carry over, as does the TRD Supercharger kit that Boosts horsepower from 236 to 334 for the V6. For both Access and Double Cab models, the available option combinations are built on five core packages. The SR5 brings color-keyed overfenders and front bumper, chrome grille surround and chrome rear bumper, intermittent wipers and upgraded interior features and trim, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic transmission shift lever. Meanwhile, TRD Sport gets suspension tuning and lower-profile 265/65 R17 tires on 17-inch alloy wheels. This package also gives Tacoma a sporty look with fog lamps, hood scoop, TRD graphics and color-keyed rear bumper, mirrors, grille surround and door handles. TRD Big Brake systems provide better stopping power for sustained heavy use while also giving better pedal feel. No pricing information has been released yet, but we can expect little to be changed for this mild facelift job.
