The compact truck market saw a fierce leap in competition heading into 2020, with manufacturers renewing their efforts within the segment. Toyota takes position at the head of the pack with the well-rounded Tacoma. This versatile compact truck may sport a smaller frame than its full-sized counterparts, but it doesn’t skimp on power and performance. It runs on a hearty engine with formidable hauling and towing capability, and it can leave the pavement behind with serious off-road durability.
Toyota offers the 2020 Tacoma in six trims:
The SR comes with an integrated backup camera, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The SR5 features a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat and keyless entry. The TRD Sport offers push button start and LED daytime running lights. The TRD Off-Road features crawl control, multi-terrain select, and an electronic locking rear differential.
In the Limited trim, you’ll find a moonroof, leather-trimmed seats, front dual-zone automatic climate control, and navigation. The TRD Pro sports TRD-tuned high-performance Fox 2.5 internal bypass shocks, a front skid plate, LED fog lights, a multi-terrain monitor, and more.
For all that it has to offer, the Tacoma comes at a surprisingly low price. If you would like to see this capable pickup for yourself, you’re welcome to drop by our dealership. Here at Nashville Toyota North, you can check out the Tacoma from bumper to bumper, and we would be happy to hand you the keys for a test drive.
Interior Review of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma
The Tacoma’s seating capacity depends on the cab style you prefer, with room for four occupants in the Access Cab and space for one more in the Double Cab. The durable cabin is lined with tough materials, whether you choose the standard model’s fabric-trimmed seats or the upper trims’ leather features. The ride will stay quiet and calm due to the pickup’s enhanced glass windows, letting you enjoy the Tacoma’s range of entertainment options like Amazon Alexa. You can also custom-tailor the truck’s interior with available features like a moonroof, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more.
In both cab styles, you’ll have sufficient legroom for adults, while younger passengers can be secured via two full LATCH of car seat connector sets. Everyone onboard will be kept safe from harm thanks to the standard Toyota Safety Sense P bundle, which equips the truck with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and more.

Performance of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma
The Tacoma remains stable on busy highways, congested city streets, and twisting paths. While all trims handle smoothly on the road, thrill seekers will appreciate the TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro versions. These specialized models sport off-roading features like a skid plate and a locking rear differential for enhanced durability and performance. If the path ahead is uneven, you can also utilize the trail camera system with guiding lines to gauge where the tires will roll before you move forward.
You’ll find a 159-horsepower 4-cylinder engine under the hood of the SR and SR5 trims, while the TRD models run on a 278-horsepower V6 that delivers 265 pound-feet of torque. When equipped for the work, the 2020 Tacoma can tow up to 6,400 pounds and haul 1,600 pounds.
