2016 Toyota Tacoma vs 2016 GMC Canyon

2016 Toyota Tacoma Interior Tuscaloosa AL

The Toyota Tacoma has long remained a top pick in the midsize pickup truck segment, and that will undoubtedly still be the case for the 2016 model year. With a dramatic redesign that features bold new styling, a choice of robust four-cylinder or V6 engine engines, interior refinements and serious off-road prowess, the 2016 Tacoma has raised the bar once again. Overhauls for midsize pickups is the trend this year, as one of the Tacoma's competitors, the GMC Canyon, received a major redesign as well. Let's see how they measure up in this 2016 Toyota Tacoma vs 2016 GMC Canyon comparison.

Much of the Tacoma's loyal following can be attributed to its legendary off-road capabilities. If you want a pickup that can head off the pavement and take you on adventures through all manner of challenging terrains — mud, sand, rocks and snow — the 2016 Tacoma is one of the best options you can find. Off-road enhancing features on the Tacoma include a driver selectable "crawl mode" for low speed maneuvers, a multi-terrain system for adjusting to different surfaces and a limited slip differential and locking rear differential for increased capability on the trail. And for documenting all your off-road adventures, the 2016 Tacoma features a GoPro camera mount on the windshield.

Not only does this new V6 have better performance, but it is also expected to get some the best fuel-efficiency in its class. When you factor in the 2016 Tacoma's retuned suspension and lighter overall weight, drivers of this fantastic pickup are able to enjoy a very high-performance driving experience.
