It seems like Toyota is going to be quite busy this year. Just weeks after pulling the covers off the all-new A90 Supra, Toyota will soon be debuting the 2020 Tacoma pickup truck.
Set to make its official debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the mid-size pickup truck could get a bold redesign, along with some high-tech upgrades.
Based on the teaser photo provided, the 2020 Tacoma will most likely be a refresh for the third-generation pickup truck. First unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), the 2020 Tacoma appears to keep the familiar chiseled exterior as its predecessor albeit sporting some subtle changes.
For starters, a new set of headlights are seen on the updated pickup truck. It now comes with what appear to be C-shaped daytime running lights, along with revised LED projectors. The front grill, on the other hand, also appears to have been tweaked in order to conform with Toyota's updated design language.
Apart from the lone teaser photo, Toyota is still tight-lipped with regards to the other details of the 2020 Tacoma. We won't be surprised, however, if Toyota decided to add their suite of advance safety features on the refreshed Tacoma. Dubbed 'Safety Sense P', this smart system will give the Tacoma features like front collision avoidance, pre-crash assist, lane departure alert, automatic high beam assist, and pedestrian detection.
Under the hood, the 2020 Tacoma will most likely still be available with either a 2.7-liter inline-four or a 3.5-liter V6. Both engines could get a boost in horsepower and torque for the 2020 refresh. A six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic are most likely to be the transmission choices for either engines.
Toyota will officially reveal the 2020 Tacoma come February 9 at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
