2020 Toyota Tacoma Overview

For 2020, the Toyota Tacoma receives some critical updates to its infotainment system, as well as some design and content tweaks. It competes with other midsize trucks like the Chevrolet Colorado and Nissan Frontier.

The Tacoma comes in more than 30 potential configurations, including multiple bed, cab, and trim combinations. The Access Cab, an extended-cab trim, features rear half-doors, a 127.4-inch wheelbase, and a 73.7-inch bed. The Double Cab, a full 4-door pickup truck, is available in two bed lengths. The short bed version measures 60.5 inches, while the long bed version measures 73.7 inches and features a 140.6-inch wheelbase.

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma is available with either a 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder engine. The base 2.7-liter engine makes 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, while the 3.5-liter V6 makes 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. Power goes either to the rear wheels or to 4-wheel drive (4WD) with low range. A 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard for the 4-cylinder engine while a 6-speed manual transmission is available for the V6.

The 2020 Tacoma comes in six different trims. These include SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, TRD Pro, and Limited. Updates to the SR include a new grille and darker taillight housing. The SR5 also gets a new grille and features 16-inch satin wheels. The TRD Sport gets 17-inch alloy wheels and features LED fog lights.

The Limited trim features 18-inch alloy wheels and standard LED headlights, while the TRD Pro features new sequential LED daytime-running headlights, dark accent taillights, and unique 16-inch wheels. The TRD Pro also is available in colors such as Super White, Midnight Black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, and 2020’s exclusive color, Army Green.

The TRD Off-Road includes a locking rear differential and trail-ready gears like Hill-Assist Control, Multi-Terrain Select, and Crawl Control.

Inside, the SR5 and above receive 10-way power adjustable front seats with lumbar support. The dashboard features a new 7- or 8-inch touchscreen display that comes equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. The TRD Off-Road also has the Multi-Terrain Monitor, which allows you to see all sides of the truck and the trail around you. Any V6 version of the Tacoma comes with the Tow Package, which consists of a transmission cooler, oil cooler, and power steering cooler, as well as a class IV tow hitch. When properly equipped, the Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds. The TRD Sport, Off-Road, and Limited come with Passenger Smart Key entry, and the TRD Sport and Limited come with a 360-degree camera.

Every Tacoma comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). This suite of driver-assistance features includes forward-collision warning and avoidance, lane-departure warning, sway-warning system, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. Although the 2020 Tacoma has not been rated yet, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the 2019 Tacoma a crash test rating of Good in most categories.

No matter the trim, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma features the gear and equipment for nearly any task.
