If you’re looking for a midsize pickup, the 2020 Tacoma makes itself a worthy option. There are six models and 30 different combinations of trim levels available, with the SR starting at $26,050. It has an estimated gas mileage of 20MPG for city and 23MPG for highway driving. It’s also built with a 2.7L inline 4-cylinder engine, boasting 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque.
Those looking for a truck with a best resale value should consider the Tacoma. It has an estimated 60.6 percent resale value after five years of value, and has been the Best Resale Value Award winner for six years in a row by Kelley Blue Book. This can be credited to the Tacoma’s toughness, reliability and quality build.
By choosing the Tacoma with the available 3.5L V6 engine, you’ll be getting an efficient and powerful ride. Tow up to 6,800 pounds or carry a payload of 1,440 pounds by pairing it with the Tow Package.
Those wanting to go off the beaten path can take advantage of the Tacoma’s off-road capabilities. With the Crawl Control system, your truck will automatically modulate the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings so you can keep your eyes on the road. Multi-terrain Select helps drivers regulate wheelspin by improving traction as needed.
Another off-road advantage is the Hill Start Assist Control. It helps keep the Tacoma from rolling backwards as you shift from the brake to gas pedal. Stay aware of your surroundings with the available Multi-Terrain Monitor that displays views from the front, rear and side cameras onto your eight-inch navigation display. No matter where you drive, you’ll be getting fresh air with the TRD Pro Desert Air Intake which draws fresh air from above the dust line and prevents dirt from entering the engine.
