Toyota Motor Corporation announced it will unveil the 2020 Tacoma midsize pickup during next month's Chicago Auto Show.

The Japanese automaker released a darkened photo showing the top part of the front-end set against a mountain silhouette. The image certainly shows a different roof and headlight design than the current model, but it’s still not clear if is just a refresh or an all-new version.

A video teaser released on Facebook show that the 2020 Toyota Tacoma will feature a power front seat, which isn't available in current versions.

Last year, the Tacoma was the best-selling pickup in its class over the U.S. market. Following a US$150 million investment to increase production at the Tijuana manufacturing plant, Toyota sold 245,659 Tacomas last year, which was its best year ever and an increase of 24% over 2017. The second-place Chevrolet Colorado was a distant second at 132,842, despite a 19.3% hike. 

Demand for the Tacoma is so strong that Toyota currently builds an assembly plant in Guanajuato, Central Mexico, to boost its availability in the U.S.
