The updated version of the famous truck has been presented recently and we are now waiting for the details about the launch date. Considering that the recent presentation didn’t show all the novelties for the next year, according to some reports, and that a diesel version is also about to come, we can also speculate about the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel release date. At this point, we can only presume that the new version, with oil-burner, will come along with standard gasoline models. As we already mentioned, this model will come with a lot of updates. That should help in keeping the leading position on the market, among mid-size trucks.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Release Date
When it comes to exact details about the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel release date, we can’t say anything for sure. Despite an early premiere, the fact is that the updated model won’t come so soon. Most likely, we will have to wait for a typical time of year, which would mean the last quarter of the year. Eventually, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel release date could be scheduled a couple of weeks earlier than we usually see launches of carryover models.
One of the main reasons why people are so interested in more details about the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel release date is a new engine. At this point, we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. However, various reports claim that a new version with oil-burner is definitely coming. According to these reports, the new version will feature a familiar turbodiesel engine, borrowed from the current generation of the legendary Hilux, which is available all around the world, except in North America. That would be a 2.8-liter engine, which delivers around 177 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. However, the same reports are also suggesting a slight power boost for this occasion.
Drivers of this version could benefit in many ways, but two main things are fuel economy and towing capacity. Considering that current gasoline engines are quite thirsty, the difference in mpg should be significant, of course in favor of a new diesel engine. Also, count on better towing capacity, which should go over 7.000 pounds.
Visually, the new diesel version shouldn’t feature any important visual difference compared to gasoline models. Of course, it would include all the novelties that were presented recently. These changes aren’t numerous and they are very subtle as well. Practically, the biggest difference is in a slightly revised grille. It comes with a new honeycomb/mesh pattern, while you can also get a new LED bedlight.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Features
Probably the biggest novelties on the recent premiere were new features. With a couple of nice updates, this truck is now more comfortable and more convenient. The first thing that comes to mind is a new driver’s seat, which is now power-adjustable. Another important novelty is a new infotainment system, which comes on a new touchscreen. It is far more intuitive and easier to use compared to the previous version. Also, you can count on all those smartphone goodies, such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa
A new diesel version will adopt all these novelties for sure. Additionally, we could see slight revisions on the dashboard, particularly on the instrument cluster. It would
