    I can hear that truck from here...

    Those wheels are nice.

    I thought only the new Pro and Limited had different wheels.

    It is Toyota's Safety Connect (SOS) button. The truck will come with Entune 3.0 - all the Camry, Sienna and Corolla models have it now. They will start to roll 3.0 out on all new cars.

    I think I’m going to as well. I love this truck and see it as a 15-20 year vehicle; however, it should have been ordered as an MT the first time around. Pending the gap to cover isn’t ridiculous, I’m going to inquire on jumping from AT 18 Pro to MT 20 Pro

    Still debating on trading in my 19 OR for a 20 but I guess I should wait until I see it in person...

    Kicking myself for not waiting for the 20! Wonder how much I would lose by trading in...

    Thinking about it more, this makes more sense. I’m going to wait as well. The next gen platform is just around the corner. May even switch to a new gen 4Runner.

    Predicting a new gen 4Runner in 2020 as a 2021 model. And a new gen Tacoma in 2021 as a 2022 model.

    I would say practically a zero chance on seeing the 4th Gen Taco in 2021 with a refreshed 3rd Gen happening in 2020.

    You're most likely right. I can only hope.

    I’m interested in the 4Runner as well. I’m hoping it doesn’t get any larger even though that seems to be the trend. Obviously it should have all the safety tech standard and 3.0 which is a plus imo.

    My main hope with this 2020 Tacoma is plug and play parts.

    Yup, same here. I would get the new head unit and be happy with that.

    I'm very interested in a new 4Runner. This time around I went for the Tacoma since the interior is better equipped with tech and more color options if I'm being honest. 4Runners are also pretty pricy but I had the Tacoma vs 4Runner debate in my head for a long time.

    There's also a new RAV4 TRD version coming out which of course will never be as off-road capable as the 4Runner or Taco but still, looks interesting.

    I think the next gen Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner are all going to be based on the new TGNA platform. So they'll be a few years at least and possibly all renewed at the same time. But definitely not going to be next year. Zero chance with a refresh happening this upcoming year already.

    I for one cant wait for the 2020 release so that people can get the part numbers for the new head units and then quickly have all their hopes dashed when they realize they'll be staring down 2k+ upgrade for some options that can be achieved with better results for closer to $400 with aftermarket items.

    Also, the 2020 4Runner has already been displayed, we'll have to wait at least another year for a 6th gen. 2020 is a refresh just like the Tacoma.

    Haven't seen any aftermarket solutions that are better than a native solution that is in the 2020.

    There are many reports of the next Tundra & Tacoma using the same platform (F1) and the next Tundra coming out around 2021. Using the same platform does make it a little easier to bring out other models. So when will the next Tacoma come out? We all know, Toyota normally runs their pickups in about 10 year cycles, so 2026. Now there are already rumors of a new Ranger around 2022, because their world truck is due then and a redesigned Frontier is reported coming around then, plus maybe a new midsize Dodge and what about Chevy/GMC. So does Toyota just jump in headfirst and come out with a new truck before 2026?

    Sorry I can’t tell you, but my crystal ball is broke. I will be looking at getting a new midsize truck around 2022, so I guess I just have to wait.

    They should really take their time with releasing this new truck. So many minute details where things can go wrong with these new electronic/mechanical designs that keep trying to push performance to the limit..

    Define better or worse, what are your criteria? Obviously "better" is subjective, but for me I added all the options I've seen that come with the 2020 unit, less the simulated 360 camera, OE software, an 8" screen for <$400. I ended up with the same remaining options that stock has, but with more apps, more power, more in/outputs, more EQ tuning, a flat sound curve with no attenuation at higher volume, and more.

    Doing a quick search right now shows the 2016+ Factory radio at about $2400 for the base model w/o nav. The dash pieces that would be needed to fit the 8" display, based off the cost of the current dash parts, is about $240. All of the Nav units are about 4k. So, I feel confident I could add everything else the stock unit will have, other than the software, for the remaining ~$3800 I would have to spend.

    A guy at Toyota shop that sees a lot of different makes indicated that Toyota is usually late to the party with respect to electronics and tech, compared to other makers, because they stress test things longer.
