Despite numerous reports about the 2020 Toyota Tacoma redesign, we are pretty sure that such big changes won’t come so soon. The popular mid-size truck has been around for almost 24 years. It is currently in the third generation, which debuted in 2015. Considering the usual production cycle of this truck, we have no doubt that the current model will carry on for several more years. Still, that doesn’t mean we won’t see changes meanwhile.
We may not see a 2020 Toyota Tacoma redesign in the next year, but some changes could come pretty soon. Latest reports suggest a bunch of possible changes for the next year, including a facelift, interior changes, and even new engines. However, we are still waiting for the official confirmation for these changes.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Redesign Changes
As we already mentioned, the next year definitely won’t bring a complete 2020 Toyota Tacoma redesign. Still, it looks like there are some interesting novelties to come. Some reports suggest a mid-cycle refresh. Such updates usually bring a lot of changes in terms of styling. So, this facelift could include various changes on parts such as the grille, front bumper, headlights, and similar areas. On the other side, we don’t expect to see too many modifications on the rear end. Finally, count on those typical updates, such as new color options, wheels and similar things.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Interior Redesign
This update could bring some interesting changes on the inside. Still, we have to say that the current model already looks pretty good on the inside. It comes with a pretty attractive dashboard, which is highlighted by round air vents and a few more interesting details. The overall quality is pretty good, though we must say this is a pretty old-school truck, which doesn’t feature too many surfaces that are soft on touch.
The cabin of this truck doesn’t just look good. It is also very practical and functional. Both rows are very generous in terms of legroom, while front seats are particularly comfortable. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma redesign won’t happen, but we could see novelties in terms of interior color schemes etc.
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma redesign would definitely bring a lot of new standard features, but we are about to see novelties anyway. One of the possible novelties is that a 7.0-inch touchscreen could become part of the standard equipment. Same goes for the satellite radio. Rest of standard features will remain pretty much the same, which means things like Siri Eyes Free, a six-speaker stereo, three USB ports, and Bluetooth. On the other side, things like dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, push-button start, remote and proximity keyless entry and similar things will remain optional.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Engines
Despite the fact that we won’t see a 2020 Toyota Tacoma Redesign, the next year is about to bring some interesting novelties under the hood. It looks like a diesel version is coming, but let’s start with familiar units first.
The base 2020 Toyota Tacoma will continue with a familiar 2.7-liter inline-four, which is good for about 160 horsepower. Higher trims will be equipped with a well-known 3.5-liter V6, which is good for about 278 horsepower and delivers much better performances. Speaking of the performances, This engine ensures max towing capacity of around 6.800 pounds. The Tacoma also features class-leading payload capacity, which goes over 1.600 pounds.
On the other side, a big complaint goes to fuel economy, which is subpar with both engines. The four-cylinder unit returns around 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. V6 models return around 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
Things should become much better with a new diesel engine. According to the latest reports, we are about to see a familiar 2.8-liter turbodiesel, which already powers much more famous sibling, Hilux. This unit is good for about 180 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, but we won’t be surprised if we see a slight power boost for this occasion. In any case, we count on a much better fuel economy, maybe even
2020 Toyota Tacoma Price
Since the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Redesign definitely won’t happen, we shouldn’t see bigger changes in terms of the price. Base models should go around 25.500 dollars.
