    For 2012, the Toyota Tacoma offers a restyled exterior look and a redesigned, upgraded interior.
    Exterior changes include a redesigned hood, grille, front bumpers and headlamps.

    Interior, a new center-instrument panel is redesigned with a revised gauge cluster along with a new steering wheel. A new air conditioner, heater controls and power point locations are also added to a redesigned center stack.

    The 2012 Tacoma interior also gets a new look with a black high-contrast center console, switch plate covers, dash and upper door trim, while the SR5 grade features a new seat fabric design.

    The 2012 Toyota Tacoma also has upgraded audio options for some models. Access Cab models offer a new available six-speaker system. The audio head unit has built-in Bluetooth® allows hands-free phone, and a USB port enables connection of an iPod®, MP3 player or flash drive with music files.

    The DoubleCab V6 models offer a more advanced display audio system with today’s most in-demand connectivity features. These include navigation, Toyota Entune™ services, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (with 90-day trial subscription), HD Radio with iTunes® tagging and text/e-mail-to-voice. This premium infotainment system plays through a JBL® GreenEdge audio system with seven speakers. GreenEdge technology helps reduce fuel consumption by lowering the electric power demand on the vehicle.

    New for 2012, Tacoma offers a heavy-duty all-weather flooring in the 2012 Tacoma Access and Double Cab models, while the more specialized TRD Sport and Off-Road models offer new water-resistant fabric protection seats. The TRD Sport Package adds side mirrors with turn-signal lamps for 2012, as well as available chrome-clad 18-inch wheels.

    Performance wise, the 2012 Tacoma uses the same engines as 2011 MY, it offers two types of engines: a 2.7-liter Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) four-cylinder that produces 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft. of torque, and a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 that provides 236 horsepower with 266 lb-ft. of torque.
    The Tacoma X-Runner performance truck, unique in the entire compact truck category, returns for 2012 and features the 4.0-liter V6 engine with a specially tuned chassis. Featuring a six-speed manual transmission, the X-Runner can accelerate from 0-to-60 mph in less than seven seconds.

    yes mahindra in states they already have strong presence in tractor market, now they car coming into light trucks market ,they already appointed 350+ dealers and have 35+ million$ orders for tr20 and tr40 models. They were supposed to start delivering trucks by end on 2010 but they had a dispute with their main distributor named Global.
    that's why it got delayed.but it seems mahindra is making wayout to start delivering vehicles directly to dealers by eliminating Global from scene.
    they already got approvals from US govt

    Tata doesn't have any plans to bring Tata products in US in near future they are more concentrated on LR and Jaguar for US,but I guess once Marinara opens in US market it will provide easy access to TATA towards US market
