Known for its amazing quality, spectacular reliability, and excellent off-road characteristics, the Tacoma is definitely one of the best trucks you can find around. So far, we have seen three generations of it. The current version is on the market since 2015 and it looks like we are about to see some changes soon. Allegedly, a new 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 is about to come. One of the most popular versions of this truck, the SR5, have been so far available with the four-cylinder engine only. The upcoming model will make the larger V6 available as well.
- Superior off-road capabilities
- Great payload capacity
- Intuitive infotainment system
- Excellent predicted reliability
- Lower towing capacity than some rivals
- Fuel economy could be better
When it comes to the exterior design, various reports suggest a mid-cycle update for the next year. This update should involve the 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 as well. Although it seems too early for some more precise predictions, we could presume that most changes will come in terms of aesthetics. This version is expected to come with a couple of distinctive visual details as well. The current model already comes with some upgrades compared to base models, such as chrome grille and bumper, bigger wheels, fog lights etc. A few more should come with the new 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6.
The cabin of the upcoming model probably won’t change too much. The current model already features a real upscale interior, even in lower-grade trims like this one. Lots of legroom is the thing you can count on for sure. Also, count on a long list of standard features. The current version already comes with things like leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry, and ignition, voice controls, satellite radio, smartphone navigation via Scout GPS app etc. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 should also come with a couple of upgrades, such as a bigger 7.0-inch touchscreen, push-button start, and similar things.
We are have finally came to the most important aspect of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6. So far, the SR5 trim was only available with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, which is good for about 160 hp. A larger V6 have been available in higher trims only. In the next year, this V6 will become available in the SR5 as well. Unlike the legendary Hilux which comes with a heavy-duty 4.0-liter V6, the Tacoma features a more refined, 3.5-liter V6. It offers a similar amount of power, but far better fuel economy. This unit delivers around 280 horsepower and features fuel economy that goes around 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 Release Date and Price
Although it is still early for some more precise launch date, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 V6 will come sometime in the third quarter of the next year. Due to a bigger V6 engine, it will definitely cost more than the current SR5, which starts at $27,000.
