How powerful is the new 2020 Toyota Tacoma?

2020 Toyota Tacoma engine options and maximum haul ratings

Toyota’s line of pickups is one that is often lost in the crowd, as its sedans and SUVs usually perform better when it comes to overall sales figures. But make no mistake; a Toyota truck is one of the best investments you could make, with stellar performance, muscular and chiseled vibes, and a willingness to complete the task at hand no matter what it requires.

In the mid-size truck market, the Toyota Tacoma is a true leader, and it returns for the upcoming model year stronger than ever. To see what we mean, check out the 2020 Toyota Tacoma engine options and maximum haul ratings with Toyota Palo Alto!

Engine options and performance features for the 2020 Toyota Tacoma

As in previous years, the 2020 Tacoma will come with two rough-and-tumble engine options, attached to power-trains that are nothing short of excellent. Your first choice is a 2.7-liter DOHC four-cylinder motor, capable of cranking out up to 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. For more juice, check out its 3.5-liter V6, complete with 278 ponies and 265 pound-feet of torque!
