2020 Toyota Tacoma review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Toyota Tacoma?

The Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup truck that offers a choice of two cabs and can seat up to five. A 159-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, while a 278-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 is available. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, and the V-6 can also work with a six-speed manual. Rivals include the Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado and Nissan Frontier

What’s New on the 2020 Toyota Tacoma?

A 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system is standard, and an 8-inch touchscreen is optional. The Tacoma now has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, while minor exterior styling changes include new grille designs and updated taillights. A 360-degree camera system and terrain monitor are available. 

What Features in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Are Most Important?

The TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro models are designed to venture off the beaten path with features like an off-road suspension, a locking rear differential and Crawl Control. The Tacoma’s maximum towing capacity, meanwhile, is 6,800 pounds when properly equipped. Standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic high-beam headlights.  

Should I Buy the 2020 Toyota Tacoma?

The Tacoma’s base four-cylinder engine helps keep the price low, but the V-6 delivers better performance without a significant gas mileage penalty. However, limited headroom and a small backseat are downsides.

Hesitation

I have a issue with acceleration and gear change when gasing it for lane change, ramp acceleration etc. There is to much hesitation in gear change.

3.9

Not what I expected

I went from a Tundra to a Tacoma looking to help on gas mileage. I did gain some, but the trade off was not worth it. I had the V6 and it seemed to be under powered. On the highway it was constantly shifting up and down to stay at speed. Love the look, but it was just not for me.

5.0

Great truck

Leased this truck new. Almost 2 years into my 3 year lease and love it. Rides and handles great. Very dependable. Have driven it from NY to Florida and back and it rides great.
