2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid

The fully redesigned Toyota Tacoma has caused quite a stir and for good reason. Toyota took its sweet time redesigning the midsize pickup truck and came out with a rugged option with innovative features, high-tech equipment, and an available hybrid engine. Shoppers interested in purchasing a 2024 Tacoma Hybrid better be prepared to pay for it, as it’s a lot more expensive than before.

While the regular, gas-powered 2024 Toyota Tacoma starts at $32,995 (prices include destination), the Tacoma Hybrid has a starting price tag of $47,795. Compared to the gas-powered model, the hybrid requires an extra $14,800. Unlike the gas-powered Tacoma, which starts off with the SR trim, the Tacoma Hybrid’s base trim is the TRD Sport. The next step up is the TRD Off-Road, which costs $48,085. After that, pricing takes a considerable jump.

The Tacoma Hybrid Limited is the high-end trim in the lineup and costs $57,295. The Trailhunter and TRD Pro, which are the most capable Tacomas available, cost $64,395 and $65,395 respectively. Comparing the 2024 Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro to last year’s model reveals a price difference of $17,375. Sure, the 2024 Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro is a far more advanced, capable, and powerful vehicle than before, but it’s in a different price bracket compared to before.

We’re sure Toyota won’t have a problem finding buyers for the Tacoma Hybrid Trailhunter and TRD Pro models, but with a starting price tag above $60,000, these trucks are aimed at different buyers than before. Despite being incredibly more expensive than before, shoppers are still looking at paying above MSRP to get one of these models if they aren’t interested in waiting a few years for the market to cool.

While the gas-powered Tacoma features a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes up to 278 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, the Tacoma Hybrid has a far more powerful engine. The Tacoma Hybrid comes with the same turbo engine but pairs it with an electric motor and a battery pack for 326 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the extra power, the Tacoma’s highly capable off-road trims (Trailhunter and TRD Pro) and upscale Limited trim are only available with the hybrid engine.

To some, the 2024 Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro’s starting price tag of $65,395 may seem exorbitant, because it is. The new TRD Pro becomes one of the priciest midsize pickup trucks on sale. It costs more than the Ford Ranger Raptor ($57,065) and Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison ($60,540), but is cheaper than the GMC Canyon AT4X AEV ($65,995).
