The forthcoming 2024 Toyota Tacoma could gain some important updates. Right now, we saw the first batch of the spy photos, although the spied prototype didn’t reveal that much. New Tacoma will be heavily based on the larger Tundra truck. Both models will ride on the same TNGA GA-F architecture. Of course, Tacoma, as a smaller model will get a modified version of this platform.
Some reports are writing about the new suspension and even a new powertrain option. Of course, the biggest speculation is a hybrid model, which makes perfect sense. The mid-size pickup truck will also introduce numerous exterior and interior upgrades, so here is everything you need to know.
Toyota Tacoma Spy Photos
As we said, the 2024 Toyota Tacoma has been spied on for the first time. However, we couldn’t spot so many changes as the prototype wears a heavy camouflage. We think the mid-size Tacoma will continue to borrow styling from a larger Toyota Tundra. That includes the same grille, bumpers, headlights, and taillights.
Whatsoever, even the fog lights will be the same, along with a couple of exterior colors. We don’t know that much about the wheels, but it seems like Toyota will provide new optional rims. Toyota already introduced new packages for the SR5 trim level. The SX and Chrome packages are now available and the same packages will be on offer in 2024.
The new interior is on the way, at least according to the most recent reports. The 2024 Toyota Tacoma is about to gain more high-quality materials, which is great to hear. Cheap materials will be found exclusively in the base trim level. However, even the entry-level model will be significantly improved. Thanks to that, expect a more upright cabin design with more high-tech amenities and more durable materials.
Most likely, the mid-size Tacoma will receive an updated digital gauge cluster and a slightly revised dashboard. Thanks to the numerous trim levels and packages, the Tacoma model can be configured in 30 different ways, which is incredible. We are waiting to see if this pickup truck will get larger displays and new infotainment. On the other hand, we know that the current cab setups will remain intact.
New Powertrain Options
For a start, one of the most important upgrades on the 2024 Toyota Tacoma could be a revised rear suspension. The test mule clearly shows a rear coil spring suspension setup. Moreover, a 2.4-liter engine with 265 hp that powers the Highlander SUV could be on offer. The base four-cylinder engine should remain, but nothing is clear at this point.
Some speculations are suggesting a hybrid powertrain as an option. This means the Tacoma model will borrow a hybrid setup from the larger Tundra sibling. If that truly happens, then Tacoma Hybrid will produce a lot of power, around 430 horsepower, and over 550 lb-ft of torque.
2024 Toyota Tacoma Launch Date, Price
The sales of the upcoming 2024 Toyota Tacoma will begin next year, possibly in the summer of 2023. The current model starts at $27,000, so the 2024MY should cost a few extra hundred dollars. The Japanese brand will hopefully deliver more details by the end of the current year.
