Pricing for 2020 Toyota Tacoma SR5 Proves the Ideal Choice vs. 2019 Tacoma
The Toyota Tacoma has dominated the midsize truck segment in America for well over the last decade. Thirteen consecutive years of market share victory, to be exact. Tacoma trucks are tough and dependable and reliable, and they hold their value better than any other vehicle in the entire country, regardless of brand and model.
2020 is the model year for important Toyota upgrades
With the imminent release of upcoming 2020 models, many potential Toyota trucks and SUVs are awaiting several key upgrades for their favorite vehicles. The 2020 4Runner is one model getting important updates. Several improvements are coming to the 2020 Tundra as well. So, too, are big changes headed for the 2020 Tacoma.
Pricing will be a key factor in a buyer’s decision to upgrade to a new 2020 Toyota Tacoma. I wrote a story last week detailing the 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro pricing plan, and now I will share the philosophy on pricing for 2020 Tacoma SR5. Spoiler alert – you should like it.
What is pricing for 2020 Tacoma SR5?
As most of us know, every year vehicle pricing almost always increases to some degree. Sometimes it is just a small jump, while other times it goes up quite a bit. The SR5, the workhorse trim level of the Tacoma fleet, will thankfully receive only a modest pricing increase. With the already-announced changes coming, it should be an easy decision for customers to consider upgrading their current vehicle to a 2020 Tacoma SR5.
For example, if are you are thinking about upgrading to a 2020 Tacoma Access Cab V6 4x2, your factory MSRP will be $30,970. This specific model was priced at $30,470 for 2019, a difference of $500.
Let’s look at the Double Cab SR5 3.5-liter V6 engine (the Tacoma V6 engine produces 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. torque and is matched with a 6-speed automatic transmission).
If you prefer a 4x2, for 2019 your MSRP was $31,615. In 2020 it will bump up to $32,115, again a difference of $500. Also, the 2020 Tacoma 4x4 V6 Double Cab will be priced at $35,190, which will only see an increase of $200 from the 2019 version, which was priced at $34,990.
2020 Tacoma SR5 owners will enjoy valuable improvements
They say “is the juice worth the squeeze?” You know who “they” are, right? They are the people who come up with these pearls and words of wisdom for us to think about and reflect on. In this case, it applies perfectly to the changes for the upcoming 2020 Tacoma.
First off, all 2020 Toyota Tacoma trucks will operate with a multimedia screen upgrade that comes with popular applications Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with Amazon Alexa compatibility. The SR grade has a 7” touch screen, while all trim levels SR5 and above feature 8” screens.
Next, all drivers whether taller or shorter will benefit from a 10-way power driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support. This is standard on V6 engine SR5 Tacomas.
