2020 Toyota Tacoma’s New Price Increase Offset by Worthy Updates

We outline the major changes to Toyota's popular mid-size pickup, including the Tacoma TRD Sport & TRD Off-Road. Price is up $1,000 but so are the features.

Small trucks are heating up but the Tacoma knows no different — the midsize truck has been going strong since 1995. Where competitors like the Chevy Colorado and Ford Ranger took some time off before returning in 2015 and 2019, respectively, Toyota’s small pickup never left. 

Price: how much is the 2020 Tacoma?

Bad news? Expect the new Tacoma to be $1,000 more expensive compared to 2019. Good news? The truck now gets significant upgrades (previewed here) to offset the minor price bump. End of the day, Tacoma consumers are loyal to the model and its resale value has always held up.
