Latest reports suggest that 2020 Toyota Tacoma could receive a mid-cycle update. The rugged and highly-capable pickup truck is definitely one of our first picks when it comes to the mid-size truck. If you need a highly-reliable utility truck with excellent off-road characteristics, this is the right choice for you. If you are not in a hurry, this update could bring some nice novelties and make the truck even better.
The current generation is present since 2015. If we consider model’s usual production cycle, this should be a perfect timing for the update. Since it is still early for some more precise details, we must rely on our predictions. Most likely, are about to see some nice visual updates, as well as some interior changes. Of course, an expanded list of standard features is certain. When it comes to powertrain, 2020 Toyota Tacoma could also come with some revisions.
2020 Toyota Tacoma changes
Just like the most of updates, this one should also bring novelties in various aspects. As we already mentioned, novelties are possible even in terms of powertrain. However, we will stick to those more certain changes now. The base design will remain the same. We are about to see the same architecture, dimensions, as well as same body styles in the offer. While the base shape will remain, there are many new visual details to come.
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma will be adapted to the brand’s newest design language. Though, it is still unclear how this going to look on this rugged and off-road oriented truck. Also, we must say that the current model already looks very good. Moreover, it looks more appropriate than most of its rivals, if we consider its nature and main purpose. So, don’t expect some major changes, even at the front end.
2020 Toyota Tacoma interior design
Some interior changes are possible too. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma will continue with the same base characteristics, but revisions are certain. We can presume that there are many new details to come, in areas such as the dashboard, instrument cluster etc. New color schemes are possible too. Though, biggest changes will be in terms of standard equipment.
At the moment, there are six trim levels. The base SR is a true working machine, while the SR5 offer more choices and it is some kind of a value-oriented trim. Mid-range TRD Sport and TRD Off-road offer plenty of equipment for a decent price. These two models are pretty much the same on the inside, TRD Off-road come with additional exterior hardware which makes it more capable. A Limited trim is an urban-oriented version which comes with a high level of comfort and convenience. Finally, TRD Pro is the ultimate off-road machine.
2020 Toyota Tacoma engines
When it comes to powertrain, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma should continue with the same engine in the offer. However, we could see some improvement in terms of power. In the current model, the base engine is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder unit. It delivers a max output of 160 horsepower and comes with either 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.
The optional V6 engine is much more capable. It has a displacement of 3.5 liter, while a max output goes around 280 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes with either 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission

Base models will go around 26.000 dollars. The competition will remain the same. There are models like Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier etc.
