There are plenty of exciting changes for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma — this third generation model has been the subject of a ton of speculation over the months leading up to its release, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally have it in stock for you to check out. But there may be one looming question for you as you start the initial process of finding the new truck that’s ideal for you — Should I go for the Tacoma or the Tundra? We want to help make the major distinctions as clear as possible for you from the get-go, so we’ve put together this handy 2016 Toyota Tacoma vs 2016 Toyota Tundra chart for you to take a look at and weigh out the options alongside your needs and budget.
|2016 Toyota Tacoma||vs||2016 Toyota Tundra|
|2.7L I-4||Standard Engine||4.6L V-8|

As you can see, you’ve got two quite-different models on your hands, so your decision will likely be based largely on what kind of heavy-duty work you’re going to be needing to do with any regularity. If you want something that’s going to do some major towing and hauling for you, the Tundra has got the competitive edge with its standard V-8, advanced capability, and formidable size.
On the other hand, you might be looking for something a little more light to medium duty. There’s no doubt that the Tacoma has got you covered here, with available packages that can beef up what’s possible on the base model by quite a bit. Since the Tundra offers nothing below a V-8, anyone not quite looking for that level of power will find something in the 2016 Tacoma line-up for that just-right size without sacrificing any of the long-term reliability and hard work you expect from all Toyota trucks.
