Sporting a new grille design on most models in the range, the new look of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is complemented by a number of new features that will enhance the comfort and capability of this workhorse. The Tacoma returns with five trim levels (SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro, and Limited) and in access and double cab configurations.
The bolder grille, new 16- and 17-inch wheels, plus a new 10-way power adjustable driver seat with power lumbar support is featured on all SR models and higher. The new driver-side bucket greatly improves comfort with improved legroom and the ability for the first time to adjust the seat’s height.
The base SR models will have a larger 7-inch touchscreen, while SR5 and above will have 8.0-inch displays. Upgrades include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility for the first time. Also new is an LED bed lamp option.
The 2020 Tacoma rides on a 127.4-inch wheelbase in access and double cab configurations equipped with 73.7-inch bed on the former and a 60.5-inch bed on the latter. Also available is a 140.6-inch wheelbase double cab with the 73.7-inch bed. Power comes from a choice of two engines, a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine making 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque and a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
All powertrains feature a 6-speed automatic transmission. Tacoma models with V6 power also come with a standard towing packing with the ability to pull up to 6,800 pounds.
Panoramic view monitors, safety equipment
TRD Pro models are equipped with a new sequential LED headlamps and panoramic view and multi-terrain monitors, while the panoramic view monitor is standard on the Limited.
