2016 Toyota Tacoma Battery Size
- OPTIMA Batteries
- Las Vegas, Nevada
OPTIMA Batteries offers two direct-fit battery replacement options for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma- a D35 YELLOWTOP battery or a Group 35 REDTOP battery. Which one is right for your Toyota Tacoma? That depends on how you use your truck. If your Tacoma is your daily driver and sees regular use, then a REDTOP will offer great starting power. However, if your Tacoma is significantly-modified from an electrical standpoint (aftermarket stereo, alarm system, etc...), then a YELLOWTOP designed for both starting and deep-cycle use is a better choice.
As we look at the Tacoma in the picture above, we see a truck set up for camping, which probably means it will have sigificantly higher electrical demands than a daily-driven truck. Lights or the radio may stay on for extended amounts of time while the engine is turned off or electrical accessories, like refrigerators or auxiliary lighting may be plugged in and run off the battery while camping. Those are all considered deep-cycle uses, so the OPTIMA YELLOWTOP is definitely the right choice.
Whether you choose a REDTOP, YELLOWTOP or any other battery, you will maximize the performance and lifespan of your Tacoma's battery, by keeping the voltage level properly-maintained (~12.6-12.8V for REDTOPs & ~13.0-13.2V for YELLOWTOPs). We're so confident this is the case, we will extend the free replacement warranty by a full year on an OPTIMA battery purchased from us, if you purchase an OPTIMA Digital 1200 battery charger at the same time.
