– The ICON FJ44 Petersen Special earned a place in the newly redesigned Petersen Automotive Museum by pairing the open-top styling of the original FJ40 Land Cruiser with state-of-the-art modern performance and luxury. While maintaining the original essence of the classic Land Cruiser, this thoroughly reinterpreted 4×4 packs a Chevrolet Performance E-Rod 6.2L LS3 V-8 engine and Magnuson supercharger good for 530 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque. The upgraded power allows the contemporary classic to fly from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds with an environmentally conscious powertrain emission-certified for all 50 states.

For our 2016 Mid-Size Truck Shootout, the Toyota Tacoma enters this year’s test in an all-new package. The segment truck leader for the previous 11 years gets one major update, most notably a brand-new engine. Gone is the 4.0-liter V6 engine that powered the 2015 model, as it is now replaced with an Atkinson-cycle-type 3.5L V6. The new engine is rated to produce 42 more horsepower (278 @ 6,000 rpm) than the outgoing 4.0-liter and 1 less lb.-ft. of torque (265 lb.-ft.). The Tacoma also gets fitted with a new six-speed transmission as well.

Those waiting patiently for news of a TRD Pro version of the all-new Tacoma will have to wait no longer, as Toyota pulled the cover off of its 2017 Tacoma TRD Pro today at the Chicago Auto Show.

Back in 2015, Toyota decided to take its TRD offerings a step further by offering new TRD Pro models, which were unveiled on the Tundra, 4Runner and Tacoma of that year. The Tacoma was as close to a no-brainer as you could get considering Toyota told us at that time that nearly 40 percent of its trucks were sold with a Sport or Off-Road TRD package. The only problem for the Tacoma is 2015 was the last year of the prior generation, so the Tacoma TRD Pro was short lived. Although TRD Pro Tundra and 4Runner models were announced for 2016, there was no sign of a new TRD Pro Tacoma – until now.

PAYSON, UT
– After only two years, RMFantasySX has exploded in popularity. 2016 will be even bigger, with two significant additions. This year’s grand prize will be an all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma, taking the prizes to an unprecedented level. Also, the scoring system has been improved. Like last year, users who predict the top five riders (along with a wildcard) will be awarded points for each pick they correctly predict. For the 2016 season, however, five points will also be awarded for each picked rider who finishes in the top five but not in the exact position chosen. This rewards users who accurately predict top five finishes, even if they do not predict the exact order.
