The 2024 Toyota Tacoma is on the way, and many people are excited as the midsize truck has been in dire need of updates for some time. Especially since many manufacturers have been launching their new generation midsize trucks, bringing some serious competition to what has been the leader in that market for years now. Though we’ve known that the 2024 Toyota Tacoma would be starting production sometime soon, exactly when has remained a mystery until now, as a recent post to the Tacoma4g forum reveals that the 2024 Tacoma will go on sale in December 2023, meaning that production will also begin around December.
The new Toyota Tacoma will be produced at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing plants in Baja California (TMMBC) and Guanajuato (TMMG1), in Mexico.
2024 Toyota Tacoma: Details
Despite the 2024 Toyota Tacoma going on sale in just two months, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the midsize truck, including the starting price. It wasn’t too long ago that Toyota brought the next-generation Tacoma to the 2023 Detroit Auto Show, where a photo captured the 2024 Tacoma on display with a placard above it that read that the starting price would be $28,600 USD. That’s almost a grand less than the Chevrolet Colorado and nearly $4,000 less than the new Ford Ranger. That’s assuming that $28,600 is actually the official starting price for the pickup since that’s the current starting price for the 2023 model.
As for what brings the legendary midsize truck into the future, there’s a lot of tech that the truck desperately needed to keep up with the competition. A new 8-inch or available 14-inch multimedia touchscreen display. The system supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and pairs well with the available Qi wireless charging pad with enhanced power output. A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster with four different styles is standard for higher grades, while a 7-inch gauge cluster is standard for lower trims.
Also new for 2024 is the i-Force Max hybrid powertrain for the Tacoma. This is the most powerful powertrain ever offered on the midsize truck and is available on TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and standard on the TRD Pro and Trailhunter halo models. i-Force Max pairs the 2.4-liter engine with a 48-hp electric motor integrated into the eight-speed transmission feeding off a 1.87-kWh NiMH battery pack that created a total system output of 326 horsepower and a whopping 465 lb-ft of torque, nearly doubling the torque of the current-gen truck with the V6 engine. So, there’s plenty to be excited about, and with production starting in December, we should expect to see the Build and Price configurator go live here pretty soon, along with the ability to place an order through your local dealerships.
