The report cited anonymous sources familiar with Toyota's next-generation pickups that claim the new platform, internally called F1, will underpin every truck next decade. That includes the Toyota Hilux, which is sold globally. The strategy would mimic Toyota's approach to passenger cars and crossovers, which increasingly...

    Twenty minutes from my front door is nowhere. And that’s somewhere I want to be. That’s true for many of us who live in Denver. It’s probably true for the 30 people who will move to Denver today, the 30 people who will move here tomorrow, and the next day, too. The greatest lie...

    The Toyota Tacoma's "just right" recipe has long made it a leader among smaller (but still rather large) pickups, and this year the most capable out-of-the-box Taco TRD Pro offers an even more compelling reason to get dirty.

It turns out it was only taking a little break as a new Tacoma TRD Pro has just rolled into the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. The truck will hit showrooms this fall, as a 2017 model, and it will come complete with a full set of factory-installed off-road equipment designed by the engineers at Toyota Racing Development. Buyers will have three colors to choose from (Cement, Barcelona Red Metallic, and Super White), as well as the...
