2024 Toyota Tacoma

The 2024 Toyota Tacoma has been fully redesigned for the new model year and arrives with a new hybrid engine. Contrary to popular belief, the Tacoma Hybrid’s engine delivers extra punch, while putting fuel economy on the back foot. Additionally, Toyota will exclusively offer the rugged Trailhunter and TRD Pro trims with the available hybrid engine, which are incredibly expensive.

Toyota officially announced pricing for the 2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid recently and prices are much higher than the gas-powered model. The Tacoma Hybrid starts at $47,795 (prices include destination), which is $14,800 more than the gas-powered Tacoma. At the top of the range, the Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro costs an eye-watering $65,395.

This figure doesn’t include any markups dealers may attach to the pickup truck. Earlier this month, we found that dealers were marking up 2024 Tacomas by $10,000 and have confirmed that markups for the TRD Pro could be as high as $20,000. If that’s true, shoppers could be looking at paying roughly $85,000 for a 2024 Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro.

Compared to the previous generation, the 2024 Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro represents a dramatic increase of $17,375. The 2024 TRD Pro does come with a lot more off-road-oriented features than before and some segment-exclusive features, but it’s far more expensive than before.

All Tacoma Hybrid models come with a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s paired with an electric motor and a hybrid battery pack. Combined output is rated at 326 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. These figures are a large upgrade over the base turbo-four that makes up to 278 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid engine is also a lot more powerful than last year’s V6, which was rated at 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque.

The range-topping TRD Pro trim comes with standard IsoDynamic Performance front seats, TRD-tuned Fox QS3 adjustable shocks with rear remote reservoirs, a TRD performance air intake, 33-inch all-terrain tires, special 18-inch black alloy wheels, standard four-wheel drive, an electronically controlled two-speed transfer case, and a front Stabilizer Disconnect Mechanism. The TRD Pro is meant for serious off-roading and is priced like a truly capable off-roader. We’re sure the 2024 Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro would run rings around the 2023 model, but we’re having trouble wrapping our heads around its starting price tag.

With a starting price tag of $65,395, the Tacoma Hybrid TRD Pro becomes one of the more expensive options in the midsize segment. The TRD Pro costs more than the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison ($60,540) and Ford Ranger Raptor ($57,065), but costs less than the GMC Canyon AT4X AEV ($65,995).

After years of waiting for automakers to introduce more capable midsize pickup trucks, it looks like they’re finally responding. The only problem is that they’re insanely expensive.
