Toyota to unveil the 2020 Tacoma pickup at the Chicago Auto Show
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.
