Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2020 Toyota Tacoma Overview

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma gets update that modernize the highly popular pickup truck. The major news is that Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa integration are now standard throughout the entire range. The systems are controlled through larger touchscreens – a 7-inch display for the base SR trim and an 8-inch unit for everything else.

Every Tacoma also gets a new grille and updated taillight designs, while a 10-way power-adjustable passenger seat is now standard on all but the bottom two trims. A surround-view camera and a multi-terrain monitor system are available on higher trims.

Choosing Your Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma is offered in six trims: SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. Prices start at $27,145 including destination for the SR and go up to $45,055 for the TRD Pro.

The Taco is also available with two cab styles: the Access Cab is the standard version with two smaller, rear-hinged doors, and the Double Cab is the extended version with four full-size doors. The Access Cab is only available with a 5-foot bed, while the Double Cab can be had with either a 5- or 6-foot bed.

Engine Choices

There are two available engines for the Tacoma. The SR and SR5 get a 2.7-liter four-cylinder, while the rest of the lineup features a 3.5-liter V6.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueMax TowingFuel Economy (Combined)
2.7L 4-Cylinder159 hp180 lb-ft3,500 pounds21 mpg
3.5L V6278 hp265 lb-ft6,800 pounds21 mpg

Both engines are available with either rear- or four-wheel drive, though the TRD Pro is the only trim to come with standard 4WD. A six-speed automatic transmission handles shifting duties, but the three TRD models are available with a six-speed manual gearbox when equipped with four-wheel drive.

The four-cylinder engine in the Tacoma should be avoided at all costs as it lags behind in towing capacity and doesn't bring a noticeable improvement to fuel economy.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Toyota Tacoma models with the Access Cab can only seat four passengers, but Double Cab models can seat five with its larger back seat. With the 5-foot bed, the Tacoma has 38 cubic feet of cargo space, but the 6-foot bed offers 47 cubic feet.

These figures fall short of newer options like the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Ford Ranger.

Safety Features

The Tacoma comes with a great list of standard safety features thanks to the Toyota Safety Sense suite. It brings automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control.

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on the Limited and TRD Pro and available on the SR5, TRD Sport, and TRD Off-Road. The Limited also comes standard with the surround-view camera, while the multi-terrain monitor is available on the TRD Off-Road and standard on the TRD Pro.


Every Toyota Tacoma comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, wi-fi hot spot capability, three USB ports, and Bluetooth. The SR5 trim and higher get the 8-inch touchscreen, while the Limited and TRD Pro get navigation.

SR - From $27,145

The base SR trim is a bare-bones work truck. It comes with 16-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, cloth upholstery, and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel.

One of the more interesting available packages is the Utility Package. Instead of costing money, the Utility Package takes $1,780 off of the truck’s price tag. Opting for the package removes the rear seats, rear cupholders, and the rear intermittent wiper. It also adds black mirror caps, black door handles, black bumpers, and a fixed rear window.

SR5 - From $28,920

The SR5 adds the 8-inch touchscreen, fog lights, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and remote keyless entry as standard equipment. On models with the V6 engine, 16-inch alloy wheels are a no-cost option and blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are bundled for $570.

TRD Sport - From $33,820

The TRD Sport trim comes with the typical TRD mechanical upgrades, the 3.5-liter engine, a Class IV towing hitch, a 120-volt power outlet in the bed, and 17-inch wheels. The interior is enhanced with wireless charging, push button start, and the 10-way power driver's seat.

LED headlights, LED fog lights, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are bundled together for $1,285. Navigation, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, and LED fog lights are available for $2,900.

On Double Cab models, buyers can upgrade their TRD Sport with navigation a moonroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, automatic highlights, a six-speaker JBL audio system for $4,285.

TRD Off-Road - From $35,095

Standard features for the TRD Off-Road trim include 16-inch machined-contrast alloy wheels, an electronically controlled locking differential, and a TRD-tuned off-road suspension with Bilstein shocks.

If you want the multi-terrain monitor system, you have to choose the Double Cab. Even still, it requires at least $4,570 to get it, as it's bundled with a wide range of features such as navigation, leather upholstery, and the moonroof.

Limited - From $39,885

The Limited comes with a moonroof, leather upholstery, navigation, the surround-view camera, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, dual-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a six-speaker JBL audio system.

TRD Pro - From $45,055

The TRD Pro comes with a “TOYOTA”-stamped front grille, 16-inch black wheels, heavy-duty skid plates, Fox shocks, the multi-terrain monitor, and a multi-terrain select and crawl control system. The interior has TRD badging on the seats, shift knob, and floor mats.

CarsDirect Tip

As long as you avoid the four-cylinder engine, choosing a 2020 Toyota Tacoma mainly boils down to how much off-roading equipment you want. Since the TRD Sport has the V6 and opens up the option of a long list of available equipment, that's the one we'd start our search with.
