2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel is a logical continuation of a very attractive and popular model that fans expect with thrills since this third generation has not been significantly changed since 2015 when it was released. There are high chances that new Tacoma will be offered with a diesel engine, but also a hybrid one if the current model goes well on the market. In terms of design and chassis, there will be significant changes as a part of its mid-cycle refreshment, while the cabin should remain the same features as on old models. Finally, it will be interesting to see how the manufacturer followed high market demands when it comes to the heavy load vehicles and their cargo space.
As we said, this should be mid-cycle refreshment, so expect a few significant changes in exterior design. It is for sure that there will not be changes in proportions and shape of the chassis, but 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel should get new lights on the front and rear end, new look of the bumpers and surely slightly redesigned front end with the old and recognizable grille. The truck should also be soft on edges and protected with chrome on the bottom, with few dents and curves on the sides of the doors.
As we said, the cabin should not be significantly changed this time, offering only a few details as an upgraded version of the current model. There is wide and attractive dashboard covered with leather in higher trims, with a large touchscreen in the middle as a part of impressive center cluster framed with chrome. There are only a few buttons below it, so the driver is not distracted while driving. However, the cabin looks like usual cabins on off-road trucks with only needed commands.
There are a lot of speculations about the engine in 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel, especially when we know that current model is announced as diesel one, with 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine under the hood and much more attractive hybrid version of the engine as 2020 Toyota RAV4 got last year. The obvious question for Toyota this year is which diesel version will be placed under the hood, as they proudly announced a diesel Tacoma for the North American market. The most likely is that will be a strong 5.0-liter V8 Cummins engine with 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Release Date and Price
2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel will most likely be released at the end of the next year, following the usual schedule for their vehicles. Base price should be around $26,000, which is not much changed from the last year model, but expect higher number when it comes to the higher trims, and as we have heard, it could include very interesting additions and equipment.
