The 2020 Toyota Tacoma has arrived, and we have a number of Taylor Toyota of Hermitage specials available that make it easier than ever to finance or lease a new truck. The 2020 model year brings with it a lot of excitement, including a refined automatic transmission, standard driver assistance features even on the base model, new camera options and a redesigned power driver’s seat. Let us explore what’s new with the 2020 model and what sets it apart from other mid-size pickups on the market.
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma near Pittsburgh is available with either an Access Cab or a Double Cab. Access Cab is what Toyota calls its extended cab, and it comes with a bed that measures 73.7 inches. The Double Cab is the crew cab, and its bed measures 60.5 inches. In either case, the box is 19.1 inches deep, 56.7 inches wide and 41.5 inches wide between the wheel wells. The composite truck bed features tie-down cleats that you can reposition as well as a power outlet on the upper trim.
The driver’s seat was a focal point for the 2020 Toyota Tacoma. The new seat is much more adjustable, which makes a big difference if you work from your truck or take in on long drives. A premium fabric upholstery is standard, but you can upgrade to leather, which becomes standard later in the trim lineup. Likewise, air conditioning is standard, but a dual-zone automatic climate control system is available and becomes standard equipment with the upper trims.
The available Taylor Toyota of Hermitage specials extend to both rear-wheel-drive Tacoma models and the models that feature part-time four-wheel drive. Note that some trims are 4WD-exclusive. The base engine is a 2.7L four-cylinder that is rated for 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Toyota pairs that engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. You also have the option of a 3.5L V6 that is rated for 278 hp and 265 lb.-ft. This engine is paired to the same six-speed auto in 2WD models, and with 4WD, you have the choice between that and a six-speed manual transmission. The automatic has been recalibrated for this model year in order to provide better acceleration and fuel performance. With proper equipment and the V6 engine, a Tacoma can tow as much as 6,400 pounds. A trailering package is available that includes a Class IV hitch, engine cooling, trailer sway control and more.
All Tacoma models available at your local Toyota dealership near Mercer Pittsburgh Hubbard come with a central infotainment system with a rearview camera and advanced voice recognition so that you never have to take your eyes off the road. You can upgrade this system with integrated navigation and from a 7-inch screen to an 8-inch display. Toyota Safety Sense is standard even on the base model. It includes automatic high beams, dynamic radar-based cruise control, lane departure alert and a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is available and standard on the upper trims. New for this year is smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as Amazon Alexa, which is quickly becoming an industry standard.
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma near Pittsburgh is available in the SR trim, which is your basic work truck, and the SR5, which is a well-equipped trim intended to appeal to the average consumer. The SR5 also has a wide range of options available in order to personalize your Tacoma. The next tier up is the TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road. These are arguably the most popular trims in the lineup, and as the names suggest, the Sport is more on-road-oriented while the Off-Road is off-road focused. At the top of the range, you have the Limited and TRD Pro. The Limited is essentially the high-end TRD Sport but is also the most luxury-oriented trim available for the Tacoma. The TRD Pro, on the other hand, is the most off-road-capable and boasts a number of performance enhancements that are not otherwise available.
