2024 Toyota Tacoma – The new fourth-generation Toyota Tacoma is probably the most anticipated new truck to arrive in the coming years. Many people love the Tacoma – sales have always been strong, and the mid-size truck is now more popular than ever. The quality of Tacoma’s construction is enormous, and the resale values have remained absurd.

But almost anyone who loves the Tacoma wants something more out of it, whether it’s better performance to challenge competitors like the Colorado ZR2 and Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, a wider and more family-friendly cabin, or better fuel economy. Toyota is under tremendous pressure to make sure the next-generation Tacoma is more than what buyers want – without compromising on the things that made the Taco so great today.
Here’s what we know right now about what the fourth-generation Tacoma will look like.
The 2024 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Trail Edition pickups in the US have a broken cover, adding more sizzle to the HiLux-sized two-cab ute range.
Both U.S. market lice have enhanced suspension, the front springs are raised by 1.5 inches for the Tacoma TRD Pro and the 1.1-inch Trail Edition, with half-inch lifts at the rear for both.
The Tacoma TRD Pro not only improves ground clearance, but also obtains unique, TRD-engineered forged aluminum upper control arms for the front suspension, improving wheel articulation.
Together with Fox Racing shock absorbers, the most important approach, exit and climb angle have been improved to improve off-road capabilities.
The Tacoma TRD Pro truck also features an aluminum front slip plate, 16-inch alloy wheels with thick Goodyear A / T tires, and a three-dimensional “multipurpose monitor” camera system. The Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition releases Fox shock absorbers and a sliding plate, but acquires bronze alloy wheels.
The updated off-road Tacoma truck could be a gateway to what is expected for its global offspring, the Toyota HiLux, which will be updated for the Aussie market in October, as well as the direction the automaker is taking in the next-generation HiLux, which is expected in the middle of the decade.
Although Tacoma and HiLux have similarities, the US market for Tacoma is slightly larger and is only offered with petrol engines: a 2.7-liter four-cylinder unit (118kW / 244Nm) and a 3.5-liter V6 (207kW / 360Nm).
There is no change in the TRD Pro V6 engine with this latest overhaul.
Other changes to the 2024 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro include a vague new body paint, Electric Lime Metal. The palette is also black, gray and white, and there are also new stickers for the hood.
Although the Toyota Tacoma will almost certainly never be sold through Toyota dealers in Australia, given HiLux sales, it is expected that by 2024, when two completely new model lines will be launched, it will migrate to the same platform (TNGA-F) as the next generation of HiLux.
They may also have a more similar visual style, but it remains to be seen whether the US market’s TRD (Toyota Racing Development) sub-brand has been nixed in favor of Toyota’s newer, more prominent global performance brand, called GR (Gazoo Racing).
The new TNGA-F platform will make its debut next week in the next-generation Toyota LandCruiser 300 series, but will then find its way under the new Toyota Tundra full-size pickup this year.
Toyota Tacoma is the most popular mid-level pickup in America. It is one of those raw and washing trucks with a reputation for reliability and durability that comes together to make it legendary. But critics have not completely sold the Tacoma lately, as it is about the tail end of its current generation. Don’t worry – the eagerly awaited Toyota Tacoma pickup for 2024 is approaching, and here’s what we know.
While nothing is clear yet, it is quite well known that Toyota plans to have at least an electrified option for every vehicle by 2025. This means that it is perfectly reasonable to assume that the 2024 Toyota Tacoma pickup will offer hybrid powertrain. Will it get a new drive? Yes.
However, details of upcoming changes will remain broken until the last second. That is, as long as Toyota follows a similar protocol to previous releases of the new generation. The public generally knows very little until the actual debut.
Toyota has indicated that it will build an electric pickup soon. However, it is still unclear whether it will be Tacoma or Tundra. Ford now has a full-size electric pickup and a hybrid ute, so the direction in which trucks go in terms of electrification is any game at the moment.
What about the transmission?
One of the primary points that critics are raging about for the current generation is its “dated” 6-speed transmission. In the words of a recent Gear Patrol article, it would be “shocking” if the new generation of Tacoma did not change that. This is largely one of the most important changes that the current gen Tacoma will see in the forthcoming generational change.
As far as the manual transmission is concerned, TFL Truck reports that the speed of use of the manual 4 × 4 TRD Tacoma models is only 5%. Therefore, it is also possible that Toyota will give up the opportunity in the new generation. That means it’s all a guessing game at this point.
When will the new generation of Toyota Tacoma debut?
Gear Patrol reports that we can expect the new generation of Toyota Tacoma by 2024. In fact, it is the youngest of the off-road generations with the current generation debuting in 2016. Toyota will release new versions for others in 2022 and 2023, such as the Toyota Sequoia and Toyota 4Runner.
The 2024 Tundra is coming out this year as the new generation. Then all new Tacos should follow these releases. In any case, there are big things on the horizon for Toyota trucks, and Tacoma is neither the only nor the smallest of them.
The new Tacoma will ride on a new truck platform
This year, the new Toyota Land Cruiser J300 was launched on the fresh TNGA-F platform elsewhere in the world. The new 2024 Toyota Tundra will share this platform. In addition, we expect the new 4Runner, Sequoia and Tacoma trucks to be built on this new platform as well.
All in all, it’s time to start getting really worried about the trucks that come with Toyota’s lineup. Of course, a day like Taco Tuesday is the perfect time to muse for the upcoming 2024 Toyota Tacoma pickup. Virtually all the information we have so far is just speculation. However, it is still fun to look to the future of the legendary Taco.
