The all new Tacoma has been launched back in 2015 and since then it quickly became a favorite for those looking at a rugged yet comfortable medium sized truck. Unfortunately though, there are still a lot of people holding from buying one and it seems that Toyota’s sales are not as good as we first thought. This is mostly because they are not offering a diesel while their major competitor, the Colorado, has one. Thanks to that it managed to snatch a lot of the customers that wanted a diesel truck. While Toyota said that a diesel would not make sense in the Tacoma in the near future because the cost would become prohibitive, we are almost certain that the mid-life face-lift of the truck will get one with the 2018 Toyota Tacoma Diesel.
2018 DIESEL TACOMA PRICE
This is because Toyota would lose too many customers for not offering a diesel. That would be a shame especially since they have plenty of diesel engines developed for the International market. Our best bet would be that the Tacoma will get a new generation diesel, smaller than that of its competitors but more efficient and probably more powerful. The price is still unknown considering it is more than two full years away but because its rivals are priced around $31,000, we expect the base dieselTacoma to cost around the same.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR OF 2018 TOYOTA TACOMA DIESEL
Just like with the older model of the truck, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma Diesel is not going to change all that much when it comes to its design or even interior. This is mostly because the truck is still in its early years and it still looks a lot better than many others. However, because the diesel will likely require more cooling than the petrol engines, we expect it to receive either a hood scoop and a top mounted intercooler or a larger grille in the front bumper for a front inter-cooler. These would also make the diesel version of the truck a lot more aggressive in design. Together with a few small upgrades such as the off-road wheels or the slightly better suspension system, the truck should quickly become a favorite.
RELEASE DATE OF 2018 TACOMA TOYOTA DIESEL
As we mentioned it earlier there is still two years until official presentation. Because of that there is not much information about release date of 2018 Toyota Tacoma Diesel. According to some rumors, it is possible that they present the car in the summer months of 2017. This would mean that the car is going to hit the market in the first few months of 2018. Another possibility is that car will be presented at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, so it would be available for purchase somewhere during 2017 as 2018 model.
