If you're in the market for a pickup truck, Toyota gives you two great models to choose from. While the full-size Tundra provides extra passenger room, the midsize Tacoma is more manageable to park in tight spots. They both offer bulletproof reliability. Let's take a closer look at how the 2020 Toyota Tundra compares to the 2020 Toyota Tacoma.
Every new Toyota Tundra comes standard with a 5.7-liter, i-FORCE V8 engine. It cranks out a muscular 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. This is enough brawn for you to tow up to 10,200 pounds. Meanwhile, there are two available engines in the Toyota Tacoma's lineup. A 2.7-liter, DOHC four-cylinder engine comes standard. Toyota rates it to develop a competitive 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. If you desire more brawn under the hood, step up to the Tacoma's DOHC V6 engine. Total output increases to a formidable 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Drivers can trust the V6-equipped Tacoma to tow up to 6,800 pounds. While the Tundra does have a higher tow rating, keep in mind that the Tacoma will save you extra at the pump.
The 2020 Toyota Tundra has a bold look that demands attention. LED headlights and fog lights are found on the upper trims. Drivers seeking an exceptionally rugged look will love the TRD Pro model, which features a hood scoop and exclusive BBS wheels. For 2020, Toyota decided to refresh the Tacoma's exterior styling. A new grille and redesigned taillights help the Tacoma to stand out. Like the larger Tacoma, it can also be equipped with a hood scoop.
Regardless of which truck you choose, Toyota gives you a long list of exciting features to choose from. Technology lovers will especially enjoy Toyota's new Entune touchscreen interface, which now provides standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On the other hand, a JBL premium audio system seeks to excite music fans. Both trucks also come standard with Toyota Safety Sense. This valuable safety system provides automatic emergency braking, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure warning, and high-beam assist.

* Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. "Added vehicle equipment" includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo. [Calculated with the new SAE J2807 method.] Installation of a tow hitch receiver or other accessories located near the rear bumper may require disabling or removing the kick sensor, and the sensor operation setting in your vehicle should be turned off. See Owner's Manual for limitations.
