2020 Toyota Tacoma piles on the tech in Chicago

Cars
[MUSIC] The 2020 Toyota Tacoma has debuted here at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. And while it doesn't really look all that different, the important bits are hidden away. Although, okay, it does look a little different thanks to the fact that there are new grill, wheel, and tail light designs for each trim. Higher trims also get LED daytime running lights, and LED bed lights area available or standard depending on the trim. The biggest updates are on the tech front though. Every 2020 Tacoma gets an infotainment system that not only packs Apple car play and And Android auto, pretty much par for the course these days. But it also packs Amazon Alexa compatibility in case you leave your thermostat on too high after you left the house. Lower trims make due with a seven inch touch screen while higher trims well they get an extra inch. Off road trims get some new tech too. The TRD pro and TRD off road trims now receive what is called Multi-terrain Monitor. This is a system that's been borrowed from the big boy Land Cruiser and it uses cameras on the outside of the vehicle to help you chart the safe path ahead. TRD pro and limited trims also get a surround view camera system as standard. Otherwise, it's the same old Tacoma everybody knows and loves. The base engine is a 159 horsepower four banger, but there's also a 278 horsepower V6 on offer. A six speed automatic is the traditional option, but some V6 models can also wield the six speed manual. And just like the 2019 model, Toyota's suite of active and passive safety systems remains standard. [MUSIC]
