2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel, TRD Pro, Redesign, Price. The famous mid-size truck has been on American roads for more than 23 years and we are expecting new changes for the 2020 Toyota Tacoma. The original version of this model came in 1995. Far, we have seen three generations of it.
The current-generation model is present since 2015 and considering truck’s usual production cycle, next year would be a perfect time for the mid-cycle refresh. Still, we can make some predictions on how 2020 Tacoma could look like.
Expect a lot of new bodywork. We don’t expect changes on the inside.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Engines
When it comes to powertrain, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma will continue with familiar engines, but some rework is quite possible.
The base engine is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder unit which delivers around 160 horsepower. This engine will probably get some additional tunings which will provide more power and better efficiency.
Still, 280 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque from an optional 3.5-liter V6 sound much better. This engine could also get the slighter increase in power, but probably not so significant.
We are expecting to see a diesel engine in the offer. Latest reports suggest that the new diesel version will be ready already for the 2023-year model.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Design Changes
The upcoming update is about to bring a lot of changes. We don’t expect bigger changes on the mechanics. Expect completely new front fascia, as well as modifications on bumper and grille.
Count on new wheels design and some new exterior colors. Interior changes are also expected.
Expect some modifications of the center console, as well as some tweaks on the instrument cluster. New color schemes are certain, while new materials are possible.
When it comes to trim levels, the base organization will remain the same. There are base workhorse variants, well-balanced models that offer great value for the money, fully-equipped comfort-oriented models, as well as performance off-road machines.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2020 Toyota Tacoma somewhere in the second half of the next year. Bigger changes in price are not expected, so base models should go around 26.000 dollars.
Competition is tough. There are models like Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, as well as the upcoming Ford Ranger.
