2024 Toyota Tacoma Preview Redesign Info, Pricing, Photos, Release Date
Toyota has finally introduced a fully redesigned Tacoma for the 2024 model year. The third generation of the pickup truck ran from 2016 to 2023 – eight incredibly long years when competitors have been quicker to the punch with their redesigned offerings. Here’s what you can expect to see from the new 2024 Tacoma.
The 2024 Toyota Tacoma arrives with a new design that’s more rugged than the outgoing model. The design of the midsize Tacoma has a few similarities with the full-size Tundra. At the front, the new Tacoma has smaller, more angular headlights, a smaller grille, and a more aggressively styled front fascia. The side profile of the Tacoma still has a boxy look, but the fenders have grown to be much wider. The rear end of the Tacoma features updated taillights, a revised rear bumper, and a new liftgate design. Unlike some competitors, the 2024 Tacoma will be available in extended cab and crew cab body styles.
Toyota has brought the Tacoma into the modern era with the 2024 redesign. The midsize pickup receives an all-new interior design with an updated dashboard, new screens, and revised center console controls. In addition to the new design that appears more rugged, Toyota has fitted the Tacoma with more premium interior materials. In a first, Toyota has fitted the TRD Pro with an IsoDynamic seat that has its own air-over-oil system that’s designed to keep front passengers in place when off-roading. Toyota has also raised the Tacoma’s seating position to stop drivers from feeling like they’re sitting on the floor.

On the tech front, the 2024 Tacoma will come with a seven-inch digital instrument cluster and an eight-inch touchscreen as standard. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14-inch touchscreen will be available. We know that the midsize pickup truck will be available with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless charging pad, a Smart Card key, and a JBL audio system with a portable speaker.
Like some of its competitors, the 2024 Toyota Tacoma will come with a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine across the lineup. In its base configuration, the engine is rated at 228 horsepower. The majority of trims get a 278-hp version of the engine. The Tacoma becomes the first midsize pickup in the class to be available with a hybrid powertrain that Toyota calls i-Force Max. It adds an electric motor and a small nickel-metal hydride battery. Power with the hybrid powertrain is rated at up to 326 hp.
Toyota will offer its Safety Sense 3.0 system on all Tacomas. The suite includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high-beam assist. Proactive Driving Assist is a new feature that’s standard on the Tacoma. It uses the truck’s camera and radar systems to gently brake into curves or to provide slight braking pressure and steering support in some driving tasks. We expect blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert to be available.
Pricing & Release Date
Toyota will be introducing the 2024 Tacoma on a staggered schedule. Trucks with the turbocharged engine will go on sale later this year, while the hybrid i-Force Max models won’t arrive until next spring.
2024 Tacoma pricing won’t be announced until a later date, but we expect a large increase compared to the current Tacoma's MSRP which starts at $29,585 with destination.
Other midsize pickup trucks on sale include the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, Jeep Gladiator, Honda Ridgeline, and Ford Ranger.
