2020 Toyota Tacoma Review

from the expert editorial team

The Toyota Tacoma is the best-selling mid-size pickup in the land, by a significant margin, and has been for 13 years, according to the automaker. Will its update for the 2020 model year be enough to keep it in the top spot in this popular class?

Which should you buy, 2019 or 2020? 2020 for the added safety features and updated multimedia system

Toytota’s Tacoma mid-size pickup truck got a refresh for 2020. The third generation of the truck gets more standard safety features, updated grille and headlight designs, as well as an upgraded multimedia system and new LED bed lighting.

The biggest changes for 2020 have to do with safety features. The Tacoma received a larger suite of standard safety features, the Toyota Safety Sense P package that bundles forward collision warning with autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert and automatic high beams. 

Another welcome change relates to the truck’s multimedia system. The base SR trim gets a larger 7-inch touchscreen system; other trims use a larger 8-inch touchscreen. Both versions finally get Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa capability. 

A lot carries over into model-year 2020. The Tacoma continues to be offered with two engines: the standard 2.7-liter inline-four-cylinder and optional 3.5-liter V-6 both mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Tacoma also continues to offer two cab configurations — Access and double — and bed lengths of 6 feet for Access Cabs and 5 feet for double cabs. 

The 2020 Tacoma’s pricing looks familiar, too, as increases are minimal compared with model-year 2019. The truck is available in SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off Road, Limited and TRD Pro trims, and the majority of trims see their prices rise by $200 (destination fees remain unchanged at $1,120). Check out full pricing

The 2020 Tacoma is on sale now. For model-year 2021, a new Trail Special Edition that emphasizes outdoor equipment and rugged styling joins the Tacoma lineup. Also new for 2021 is a new Nightshade Special Edition of the truck, which boasts a black-themed interior and exterior styling upgrades. Toyota says it will build 5,000 versions of the Tacoma Nightshade; no word yet on pricing, but both special editions are expected to go on sale in the summer.’s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
