2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada Rumors and Specs

Although the updated version of the popular pickup truck is on its way and that all specs for the next-year model are pretty much known, it looks like there are more novelties to come. The upcoming refresh brings a lot of novelties. There is a slightly revised styling, new interior features, off-roading aids and more. However, it looks like the Canadian version is about to come with another big novelty if we can rely on the latest reports. That would be a version with oil-burner. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada would arrive in the next couple of months unlike the U.S. version, which definitely won’t come this year.

Reasons for such reports lay in the fact that Toyota wants to try its luck with a diesel engine, but there are still no capacities to cover the U.S. market. Therefore, Canada seems like a perfect playground.

2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada Specs

Things with 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada specs are pretty clear. In Toyota’s engine lineup, there is one engine that seems like an obvious choice for this occasion. Of course, we are talking about a familiar 2.8-liter turbodiesel. It can be found under the hood of models like HiLux or Land Cruiser Prado. In these models, it delivers around 177 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. However, the latest reports are suggesting that we could see a slight boost on this occasion. After all, Tacoma is a little bit heavier than the HiLux and every horsepower and pound-feet is important in this case.

If Toyota wants to offer a truck that can successfully compete with Chevy Colorado’s class-leading numbers. Therefore, we believe that the output would go up to around 200 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This should be enough to provide a max towing capacity of around 7.500 pounds. When it comes to fuel economy, the latest reports are suggesting that the new version should be able to make around 26/27 miles per gallon in a combined ride.

Other than a new engine, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada shouldn’t come with any notable difference compared to gasoline models. The upcoming model brings a lot of novelties. This mid-cycle update may not be flashy enough in terms of styling. However, there is a nice amount of useful additions. First of all, Tacoma finally comes with power-adjustable driver’s seat. Also, there are new, bigger touchscreens, as well as new software. Finally, the upcoming model will finally come with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa.

Another big novelty we should mention is the introduction of new systems called Panoramic View and Multi-Terrain Monitors. Practically, these are multi-camera systems that allow the driver to have a clear picture of everything that is happening not just around the vehicle, but underneath as well.

2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada Release Date and Price

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma Diesel Canada is just a rumor at this point. If it turns out to be true, we presume the new model would arrive along with the rest of the lineup. When it comes to the price, it largely depends on Toyota’s decision about which trim levels would have this engine in the offer.

Most likely, a new turbodiesel will be available already in the base SR trim level. So, we presume that the base diesel version would cost around 35.000 dollars, roughly. Latest reports are suggesting that a diesel engine could be available in TRD Pro version as well.
