If you want a glimpse of the 2020 Tacoma, this is all Toyota is providing, for now. The truck will be unveiled Feb. 7 at the Chicago Auto Show.

The Toyota Tacoma pickup truck will be redesigned and improved for the 2020 model year, and is scheduled for a world reveal Feb. 7 at the Chicago Auto Show.

The current generation of the Tacoma arrived on the market for the 2016 model year, but despite the numerous changes, it kept a good portion of the previous Tacoma’s structure, sold from 2005 to 2015. This time, we’ll be getting some exterior design changes and — maybe — something new under the hood.

Since the mid-size pickup segment is regaining traction with the arrival of the 2019 Ford Ranger, and also the multiplication of variants of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, Toyota had to rework its popular truck. It’s also worth noting Ram is preparing a mid-size pickup, a new Nissan Frontier is said to be in the works and rumours that Hyundai will soon launch a pickup truck of its own have been circling for a couple of years now. And let’s not forget the Honda Ridgeline.

For the time being, we know nothing about the 2020 Toyota Tacoma, and the manufacturer released only one teaser image of its reworked truck. More information and images of the new truck should be available next week.
