It seems like just a few short weeks since Toyota announced it would be unveiling a brand-new Tacoma truck at the Detroit Auto Show. And it was. In the month since Toyota’s announcement, the automaker has released two teaser images—one of the back and one of the front—that left us certain that the new Tacoma would, in fact, be a truck. And now, on this glorious Thursday, while we in Ohio freeze our butts off, we can reveal that the 2016 Tacoma will, in fact, be a truck.

It appears that Toyota was just so excited about the introduction of the next-generation Tacoma, it couldn’t wait until its scheduled NAIAS press conference on Monday. Instead, the automaker released images and a video of the all-new truck on its press site, and these images are now floating merrily around the internet. Check them out:

Our first thought is that the redesigned grille kind of reminds us of a duck. Sure, it stands out from the other midsize trucks on the market, but that doesn’t change the fact that it looks like a duck. Apart from that, we can see that the truck has both a cab and a bed, as trucks often do, and is blue, which we like. No technical details have been released—these images are merely designed to make our mouths water in anticipation of what’s to come… and watering they are.

Find out more about the 2016 Tacoma right here on The News Wheel via our live coverage of NAIAS, starting Monday.
