TORONTO, ON – APRIL 3, 2019 –Making its Canadian autoshow debut in the heart of Canadian truck country, is Toyota’s 2020 Tacoma. The Toyota mid-size pickup wears its legendary desert race truck heritage proudly, with upgraded features and style – plus even more off-roading prowess on the awe-inspiring TRD Pro models.
“Albertans know the meaning of work hard and play hard – and so does the Toyota Tacoma, which is why we’re excited to debut the 2020 model in Edmonton,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “Visitors to the Edmonton Motorshow can find out why the Tacoma has been North America’s best-selling mid-size pick-up truck for 14 years running – and how we’ve taken that winning combination and made it better than ever. When you’re looking for a perfect partner – for whatever your needs – Tacoma’s got your back, every time.”
Designed for every truck enthusiast, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is available in more than half a dozen combinations of cab size, bed size, engine displacement, and drivetrain configuration. Model grades include the work-ready SR series, the high-style, high-value SR5, the athletic TRD Sport, the adventurous TRD Off-Road, the ultimate trailblazer TRD Pro, and the top of the line Limited - ensuring there’s a Toyota Tacoma for every need, desire and budget.
The most muscular Tacoma yet – the TRD Pro series – returns for 2020 with a revised look and new features. Sequential LED/DRL headlamps, 16” alloy wheels, black-insert tail-lamps and Rigid Industries LED fog lights headline the exterior changes. A new Panoramic View Monitor and Multi Terrain Monitor provide high-tech off-roading assistance while maximizing visibility for the driver with the ability toview conditions to the front, side and rear of the vehicle. Other upgrades include retuned suspension systems, while a newly available Army Green is the TRD Pro exclusive colour for 2020.
