    Toyota announces 5.1 percent price hike on 2009 Tacoma pick-up

    Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., announced manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP) today for 2009 Tacoma pickup trucks, which range from $15,170 to $27,075.

    Tacoma greatly enhances its overall value with the addition of several new features. All Tacoma models will now feature Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), and Traction Control (TRAC) as standard equipment, making Tacoma the latest model to feature Toyota's STAR Safety system consisting of Anti-Lock Brakes, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Brake Assist, VSC, and TRAC. Additional new standard features include an automatic limited slip differential, roll-sensing curtain and seat side airbags, and front active headrests.

    Exterior styling has been freshened with an argent painted grille, LED taillamps and four new colors that include Magnetic Gray, Barcelona Red, Pyrite, and Timberland. Smoked headlamp trim is featured on X-Runner and models with the optional TRD Offroad and TRD Sport packages.

    Inside, Tacoma features a new and enhanced standard equipment audio system. All Tacoma audio head units feature AM/FM radio, an auxiliary audio input, an MP3-capable CD player, and satellite radio capability. Standard audio on Access and Double Cab models have been upgraded to two ceiling mounted speakers for a total of six and will be satellite radio ready. An optional JBL six-disc CD changer with satellite radio that includes a three-month free subscription to XM Satellite Radio and Bluetooth™ is available for Tacoma Double Cab models.

    Additional interior enhancements include a new front door trim panel on all Tacoma models. Access Cab models receive power windows and door locks as standard equipment and a new rear seat design that features a center storage area and under seat storage. Other enhancements include a stylish new seat fabric pattern for models equipped with the optional SR5 package, and all Regular Cab models are equipped with bench seats. A new backup monitor is offered as an option on Access and Double Cab models.

    2009 Tacoma 4x2 models carry a base MSRP that ranges from $15,170 for the Regular Cab with a four cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission to $25,285 for the X-Runner Access Cab V6 with a six-speed manual transmission. For PreRunner models, base MSRP ranges from $16,055 for the Regular Cab with a four cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission to $24,000 for the Double Cab Long Bed V6 with 5-speed automatic transmission.

    The base MSRP for Tacoma 4x4 models range from $19,130 for the Regular Cab with a four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission to $27,075 for the Double Cab Long Bed V6 with a five-speed automatic transmission. The overall average MSRP for all Tacoma models increases $1,104, or 5.1 percent.

    This, folks, will shortly be followed by the new Toyota DRIP system to make life even easier for the driver who doesn't really have a clue what he is doing. The Toyota DRIP system (Driver Redundancy Implementation Package) in conjunction with their new IDIOT system (Implementating Driver Initiation Of Transport) takes over complete control of the vehicle and makes the driver totally redundant. Just put the kids and wife in the car, programme the destination and off it goes while you sit back and enjoy a long cool beer. Just think folks, a slight slip of the programming finger and the wife and kids could end up in Siberia. Get your order in NOW!.

    BREAKING NEWS - As from April 1st Toyota will be providing a System Programmer, at a minimal cost, to carry out the programming of the new DRIP/IDIOT systems for twelve months or twenty three miles, whichever comes the sooner.
