Built Tough; Looking Tough

When it comes to driving a Toyota truck, one word comes to mind: Tough. Even from the design, the 2020 Toyota Tundra packs a powerful front grille and a frontal air intake flap on the hood that exemplifies big performance. Meanwhile, smooth and angled lines in 11 different exterior colors set the right impressions for all your drives and jobs.

Get behind the wheel of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma and let the world know you’re ready for action with an aggressive tailgate with the embossed Tacoma logo. Move to the front, and you’ll spot a regal grille that grabs attention for all the right reasons. Opt for the TRD Pro, and cool touches like bold front fascias and a desert air intake inform everyone that you’re ready to dominate the off-road in style.

Step inside either of these Toyota pickups, and it’s a fun ride that’s ready for any drive or task thrown your way. Give the 2020 Toyota Tacoma or the 2020 Toyota Tundra a test drive at Rivertown Toyota in Columbus, GA.

Don’t Just Look Tough… Drive Tough

Got a big job you need to get done?

Let the 2020 Toyota Tundra handle it with its standard 5.7L V8 motor. 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque offer a fun ride anywhere you drive whether it’s the worksite or hauling down the open I-185 toward LaGrange. It’s also all the power you’ll need to tow more than 10,000 lbs. That’s perfect for transferring small commercial work trailers, light-weight cars, heavy rocks, and plenty more.

The drive is also fun and composed on any road—especially when you’re equipped with the 4WD models’ standard Active Traction Control. It’s traction spread across your front and rear axles to help you grip to any grade and surface. Meanwhile, the two-speed transfer case applies high torque when you need big power.

Taking your adventures off-road is also easy with the Tundra TRD Pro, which equips you with 18-inch forged BBS® Wheels with reduced 3.35 lbs mass per wheel. For you, that results in cornering with full finesse. You’ll also get TRD-tuned FOX® suspension to help you cover any terrain you traverse with full control and without getting stuck along the way.

For all your jobs at home, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma has you covered with its two motors.

Standard is a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine with 159 horsepower and 280 lb-ft torque for getting up and moving on highways with your bed full of tools and supplies. Upgrade to the available 3.5L V6 motor, and 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft torque grant you a towing capacity of 6,800 lbs when equipped with the available tow package. Bringing your boat to Lake Oliver and taking your ATVs out for weekend fun is a reality with that much strength.

Much like the 2020 Tundra full size truck, the 2020 Tacoma also offers you uncompromised off-road capability on the TRD models. No terrain is uncrossable with Crawl Control, which takes over your throttle and brakes to help you navigate any loose grade. Meanwhile, the Electronically locking rear differential and Bilstein® shocks help you remain stable when climbing rocks or crossing sandy trails.

Who Says Toughness Can’t Blend with Luxury?

When you’re ready for pampering, the 2020 Toyota Tundra covers you with standard soft fabric-trimmed seats. And when you’re in the mood for a luxurious touch, available vinyl-trimmed and leather-trimmed seats with available heated and ventilated functions are there for a sleek, smooth, and comfortable addition to your cabin.

For entertainment, an available 8-inch touchscreen accompanies all your drives with integrated navigation. Reroute around traffic jams and find the best brunch in town so that you always arrive on-time, refreshed, and prepared.

Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto also come standard to help you keep up with any urgent work texts or calls while you leave your eyes on the road. Also, feel free to blast out your favorite tunes so that your commutes are always filled with the epic soundtrack customized by you.

For more voice-controlled features, Toyota+Alexa allows you to request turn-by-turn directions, control your entertainment, send you a few news updates, get your schedule together, and even control your smart appliances back home. That’s only the start of everything great Alexa will do for you to bring your drives convenience when you need it.

Take a ride in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma, and you’ll find similar levels of fun and refinement for all your rides.

Want a luxurious touch for your rugged drives? Available leather-trimmed seats create the upscale cabin you crave. The TRD Pro will even throw in heated front seats for when your adventures get cold.

Stay connected to your media with the standard 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Cruise to Auburn-Opelika with your playlists jamming while you get back to any urgent texts hands-free. And when you need a driver’s assistant, Toyota + Alexa is ready for your commands like checking the traffic before you head out, ordering food, and plenty more.

Don’t worry about your phone battery—two USB ports keep your smartphone topped off.

Standard Safety by Your Side

It doesn’t matter if you’re cruising around the job site or coming home hauling a brand-new entertainment set-up, wherever your work and life take you, Toyota Safety Sense P comes standard in both trucks to protect you every mile.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection helps you prevent fender benders by sending you visual and audio alerts of potential accidents. If you don’t take action, automatic braking kicks in to help you mitigate (if not avoid) a collision.

Having trouble keeping in the lines on the road? Lane Departure Alert sends you warnings when you begin to unintentionally merge out of your lane. This way, you’ll avoid side-collisions while remaining centered in your lane.

Speaking of highway lanes, make your interstate drives easy with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Set a speed between 25-110 mph, and your Toyota truck obeys while slowing down for cars ahead. When you also turn on Lane Tracing Assist, your Toyota Tacoma or Tundra will stay centered in its lane, using road markings and surrounding traffic as guidelines.

We all miss traffic signs occasionally. Thankfully, your Toyota pickup catches them all with Road Sign Assist. Speed limit signs, do not enter, and more appear on your driver display to ensure you always know what’s happening on the road.

When the sun goes down, your Toyota turns on Automatic High Beams to illuminate all the roads you traverse. But, when your truck spots other drivers, the feature switches to low beams to ensure everyone’s vision is never compromised.
