Pickup trucks and SUVs of all kinds have definitely ruling the market over the past years. In 2020, we should testify some major redesigns, including the new Toyota Tacoma Diesel that has been one of the most popular trucks in the US. With the new engine option under the hood and interesting visual updates, the truck is expected to hit the roads as a 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel model.
When it comes to exterior of a popular off-roader like this, its fans mostly know what to expect and always look forward to any upcoming innovations. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel is going to hit the market as a mid-size pickup truck that will be available in more than one trim level with various features and equipment, including its top TRD package. It should also be available in a two-door and a four-door configuration. The exterior styling of the upcoming Tacoma, at least some of its features, will probably resemble other popular Toyota’s off-roaders such as Tundra and RAV4. Also, this mid-size truck will share some features with the well-known HiLux, including that diesel option under the hood. Be that as it may, besides the traditional rugged and aggressive appearance, the new Tacoma should show some more subtle lines and details as well. It has been said that the front bumper will be placed higher, which will together with its improved suspension system, boost the overall off-road performance and enhance stability and handling.
Since the truck like this has been aimed at the most challenging terrains and conditions, that bumpy ride at least has to be comfortable and safe. In fact, the Tacoma’s cabin has been one as one of the most comfortable in the market. With its 2020 model, it has been said that it will also provide more space, especially in the rear seats where the passengers will enjoy more legroom. Also, the company will upgrade its infotainment system and add some more USB ports, Wi-Fi connection, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Besides these latest high-tech options, the upcoming Tacoma should also come with standard Toyota Safety Sense P, which has been the case with its relative Tundra. This package includes adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, a rearview camera, airbags, forward collision warning and others.
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel is expected to introduce a new engine option under the hood. As we have already mentioned, it will be the engine shared with models such as HiLux and Prado, the well-known 2.8-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder that delivers the output of 177 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to transmission, the truck should be paired with a six-speed automatic. However, we are waiting for more official information at the moment.
