"The 2020 Toyota Tacoma and 2019 Toyota Tacoma will fit the bill in six grades – SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited and TRD Pro – that can be tailored to fit your lifestyle with Access and Double Cab platforms. To make the 2020 Toyota Tacoma stand out from its predecessor, Toyota designers have added trim-specific grille and wheel designs, updated Toyota Entune™ 3.0 technology and innovative technology geared towards off-road adventures."
Besides the changes to the headlights and grill, there isn't that much to talk about. These changes are minor changes, they can change the way that one can view the vehicle. Here below are the changes to the exterior:
- New Headlight and Grille
- Chrome Highlights In Taillight Housing
- Sequential LED Headlights
- LED Fog Lamps and Bed Lamp
- Army Green Shade on TRD Pro Trim
One of the best additions of the Toyota Tacoma is the bigger touchscreen and Entune update. Almost every trim of the 2020 Tacoma will come standard with a new 8-inch touchscreen. It includes a new multimedia system that is compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa. The screen is notably larger with more hard buttons instead of the virtual controls found in the previous truck. Only the base Tacoma SR trim receives an upgraded 7-inch screen instead of the larger 8-inch. Here are the changes to the interior:
- Bigger touchscreen
- 10-Way Power Adjustable Driver’s Seat
- Supports Apple CarPlay And Amazon Alexa
- Toyota Safety Sense P Standard On All Trims
- Keyless Ignition System
- Surround-View Camera System
DrivetrainBesides changing the exterior and interior, Toyota didn't change much under the hood. Actually all the specs are the same under the hood to the 2019, this may be the Toyota Tacoma's biggest flaw. Here are the specs:
- 2.7-Liter, Naturally-Aspirated Engine
- 3.5-Liter, V-6 Unit
- Packs 278 Horses And 265 Pound-Feet Of Torque
- Six-Speed Manual Available
- Towing Capacity Up To 6,800 Pounds
- New 16-Inch Alloys
- Re-Tuned Shocks And Rear Springs
