    Merry Christmas.

    I just became aware that Toyota has now made the 2018 Tacoma available to dealerships. The hush hush is over.

    From what I can tell so far, the only new feature is Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) and some new grille designs and paint colors. But I haven't researched it much yet.

    There is a Toyota press release that summarizes the mods.

    The most interesting thing is that the new 2018s are built in San Antonio, TX, not Baja, Mexico. Did Trump make that happen?

    Feel free to comment on any details you might glean that I haven't yet become aware of.

    The move to Texas was already an ongoing thing before the pres was in office.

    It’s the 2nd year of the reworked model. Were people actually expecting major changes?

    TSS-P is a big change.

    They drilled holes and added more sensors.

    Yeah, you’re dead on. Lol. Drilled a few holes and added sensors. But those sensors make a pretty big difference with all the safety features.
    I think it’s a good idea but I don’t know if I would want them honestly. Kinda freaky having the vehicle correct your driving.

    Gotta increase safety instead of increasing driver education.

    It’s still harder to get a drivers license than to have a child. There are lots of people that shouldn’t be allowed to have either :confused:

    Agreed. Unfortunately that’s not the case.

    I guess with all the millennials texting and driving they need to add the TSS-P. What would they do without the safety sensors, traction control, and ABS?

    I read somewhere that the 2018 isn't able to be lifted without affecting the TSS-P, or not recommended . Has anyone heard about this, I can't see Toyota not having this option, seeing that a good majority of people want to lift these vehicle. Possibly realign the sensors (another expense)?

    If that’s true, then Toyota made a big mistake and will lose a lot of its customers.

    Lift it and turn the garbage safety crap off. You will be fine.
