The Design of No-Compromise Power
Blending style and rugged good looks, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma takes you on epic drives while turning heads in the process. Available in nine colors, you’re sure to find a design that displays your tastes. In the rear, the sharp looks begin with an embossed tailgate with the Tacoma name so the world knows you’re commanding a pick up that’s ready to get some jobs done and have fun. Upfront, you’ll sport an aggressive grille framing the Toyota badge in your choice of color from Dark Gray and Charcoal to an ultra-sleek silver.
Once you sit inside and engage in the ride, you’ll want to travel and work for hours with all the power under the hood and comfort surrounding you. Even compared to other trucks, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma still comes out on top. As proof, we’ll take a look at the 2020 Ford Ranger to see how the Toyota pickup stacks up in the most important categories. If you’re ready to get behind the wheel now, head to Toyota of Rock Hill to test drive the 2020 Toyota Tacoma.
Getting the Job Done Never Felt So Fun
Epic drives and endless capability begin when you take control of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma. Even the base 2.7L 4-cylinder motor delivers with performance and efficiency with 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft torque supplying you with nimble performance and up to EPA-estimated 23 highway mpg to allow you to tow and travel without constant stops at the gas station.
When you’re craving more power, the 3.5L V6 responds with 278 horsepower and 165 lb-ft torque. It’s not only enough strength for enjoying cruises on the open highway but you’ll also have a towing capacity up to 6,800 lbs for moving your trailers, boats, camper vehicles, and much more. Plus, with a payload capacity up to 1,440 lbs, rock, stones, hay, tools, furniture and anything else you’ll need for the job is always easy to haul.
To help you enjoy a smooth ride, you’ll have your choice between a 6-speed automatic transmission or shift at your pace with an available 6-speed manual gearbox for extra control when moving downhill or hauling a heavy load. Combined with the available 4×4 system, your truck will effortless grip dirt roads, gravel surfaces, and slick streets.
Speaking of handling awkward terrains, dominate the off-road trails with the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro trim. An air intake rests above your windshield to prevent dirt and dust from entering your engine as you take on the natural elements. Under your truck is a TRD Pro skid plate made from 1/4 -inch thick aluminum to ensure your pickup receives no damage from rough obstacles. To climb boulders and stay in control over rough patches, FOX® Internal Bypass shocks supply you with more ground clearance while also smoothing out your ride.
By comparison, the 2020 Ford Ranger only offers a 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder motor. With 270 horsepower, you’ll enjoy spirited drives and plenty of capability, even on the top-Laramie trim. However, it’s also eight less horsepower than you’ll find in the Toyota Tacoma Limited’s V6 engine—which makes a difference when you try to get up and going on SC-5 toward York, SC in quick time.
To travel off the paved path, the Ford Ranger can help with features like a sport exhaust system and FOX® off-road suspension. But again, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma gains an edge by going all-in on the off-road experience with available features like an air intake to maximize your performance.
Spacious and Refined for Your Rugged Drives
Making yourself comfortable in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is easy with so much space inside. You and your passengers will kick back and enjoy your personal space with 57.2/ 56.3 inches of hip room in the front and second-row respectively. Add in the available leather-trimmed seats, and you’ll enjoy an upscale vibe as you complete your tasks or take on the off-road trails. You can even add available heating to the front seats for instant warmth when you drive during the winter months.
When it’s time to enjoy your media, a standard 7-inch touchscreen connects you to Apple CarPlay® and Android™ Auto to help you respond to your texts hands-free while also playing your favorite playlists saved on your smartphone. Amazon Alexa also helps you find directions, and check the weather while you’re driving. This feature can also help you start your engine and lock your doors while you’re in your home. All you need to do is ask, and you’ll discover an elevated meaning of convenience.
Ride in the 2020 Ford Ranger, and you’ll also enjoy a spacious cabin, albeit with less room with 55.8/44.3 inches of hip room per respective row. Your backseat riders will feel the difference since the 2020 Toyota Tacoma offers 12 more inches of hip room in the rear seat. That’s a foot of extra personal space, allowing your passengers to make themselves comfortable and move more in their seats for the full ride.
For your tech, SYNC® infotainment comes standard to connect you with the radio. However, you’ll need the available SYNC 3 infotainment system to enjoy features like Apple CarPlay® and Android™ Auto. For offering more standard tech features and space, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma wins with its interior.
Staying Safe on the Job
Wherever you travel in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma, you’ll have standard driver-assists keeping you safe at every corner and on each trail. To help you avoid fender benders, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection warns you when an accident with an obstruction ahead is likely, and can even automatically brake for you. Meanwhile, Lane Departure Alert lets you know when you’re accidentally merging into another lane before you cut off other drivers or cause a side collision.
When the roads get dark at night, Automatic High Beams give you extra visibility, while the strength of your lighting automatically adjusts for other drivers on the road. For more automatic driving features, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control also comes standard and drives at a set speed while automatically slowing down for traffic ahead.
In the Ford Ranger, you’ll have standard Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic braking to keep you safe. You can also opt for the available automatic high beams, Lane-Keeping System, and Adaptive Cruise Control for more safety on the road. This category is close, but the 2020 Toyota Tacoma takes this round for offering standard safety across all trims.
