Toyota has launched the new 2020 Tacoma midsize pickup truck, complete with off-road-ready performance, a long list of standard amenities, and the latest connected technologies.

For the new model year, the Tacoma is offered at more trim levels and with more configurations than ever, including seven TRD models specially designed for off-road adventures.

“The Toyota Tacoma is the truck with a global reputation for adventure,” said Toyota Canada’s Cyril Dimitris. “The product of more than 80 years of designing and building trucks designed to conquer anything the terrain and weather can throw at it.”

Every 2020 Tacoma comes with a one-touch 4×4 system with auto limited slip rear differential, automatic disconnecting differential, and two-speed transfer case. Every Tacoma also gets a Class IV weight distribution tow hitch, trailer sway control tech, and a towing capability of at least 6,400 pounds.

But as rugged as it is, the Tacoma is also quite sensible inside. Power locks with keyless entry, all-season floor mats, generous in-cabin storage, and accessory power connectors are all standard. Better yet, every Tacoma now comes with a touchscreen system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility, something Toyota has historically been reluctant to include in its models.

And like almost every new Toyota vehicle sold in Canada, every Tacoma is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense P, a suite of active safety technologies that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert, and automatic high beams.

Dimitris adds: “The adventure starts now, with 16 models across three body configurations and multiple trim levels — all ready to keep up with active Canadians who demand 110% from their truck.”
