Ten years ago, Toyota has released their ninth generation Toyota Hi-Lux pickup; the result of the evolution that started in 1935 with the G1. The Toyota Tacoma, considered as a compact pickup is the brand new addition to the long line of Toyota vehicles set to hit big in the United States market. Design is far from its predecessors and drastically upgraded with a new frame and body, new suspension, coil springs in front with a live axle and leaf springs in back. Engines are more powerful with 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is capable to produce 142-horsepower, with 160 pound-feet of torque for the 2-wheel drive; while the 2.7-liter four-cylinder 4-wheel drive is rated at 150 horsepower with 177 pound-feet of torque. The new beefed up 3.4-liter, V6 has 190-horsepower output, with 220 pound-feet of torque that is available on both configurations. Set to match pickup in its class, the 2005 model top of the line Tacoma houses the 4.0 L 24-valve DOHC V6, 245 hp with a very responsive acceleration and toughness at off-road condition.
Giving details to the new Toyota pickup are parts that create major impact on the image of the vehicle at the same time providing an important purpose; parts such as the grille which serves as a guard or a protective shield of the radiator.
Toyota Tacoma grill is an opening at the front end of the vehicle which is located between the vehicle's headlights which provide sufficient supply of air to the radiator and in turn cooling the engine as the vehicle runs. As a protective shield, the grill keeps the insects and other road debris from entering the radiator that could damage the radiator and result poor radiator performance.
Replacement and aftermarket Toyota Tacoma grills are made from either flexible mesh, bar mesh, one-piece, chrome or silver slotted. The body color insert or billet can be customized to replace the stock grille insert. The Toyota Tacoma grill is a good accessory that could magnify the Toyota Tacoma truck as it traverses every city street and any off-road.
