Pickup trucks are a mainstay in the United States, and it’s easy to understand why they’ve been so appealing one generation after the next. Pickup trucks like the 2020 Toyota Tacoma in Swansea, MA offer much in the way of capability and utility for a wide variety of activities, making them the perfect companion for the daily grind, tough jobs, and weekend getaways.
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma is available in six different trims, each with their own set of powertrains, cab style, and bed length configurations. Those six trims are SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. You can select Access Cab (4 seats) or the Double Cab (5 seats) and choose between a Long Bed or a Short Bed, depending on what you’ll need. The standard engine is a 2.7-liter inline-4 capable of 159 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft of torque, but a 3.5-liter V6 that can produce 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft of torque is available.
For any pickup truck, you’re going to know what it can do to help you haul big loads of cargo or carry the tools you need for your summer projects. We’re happy to report that the 2020 Toyota Tacoma offers a lot of utility to help make things easier.
While you’ll be able to fit plenty of cargo in the truck bed with as much as 1,440 pounds of maximum payload available, you may still find yourself needing to tow something behind you—maybe a trailer on moving day or your trusted fishing boat for the weekend. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds with the available V6 engine and when properly equipped. When you opt for the available Tow Package, you can take advantage of Trailer-Sway Control, which uses brake pressure on individual wheels and works with the engine torque to help keep things steady.
The Tacoma also offers a few different hidden storage areas, even ones that lock, so you can use many different nooks and crannies for bringing your tools along for the ride. You can even use the available bed-mounted 120V/400W outlet to help keep things powered while you’re out, perhaps on a camping trip.
Technology is also key, and you will find it here. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ come standard, as does Bluetooth® wireless technology and a SiriusXM three-month All-Access trial. Those are housed on a standard seven-inch touchscreen, with an eight-inch touchscreen and navigation being available in higher trims. Toyota Safety Sense™ P is also standard. This is a suite of smart safety technology that includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
