The new generation 2024 Toyota Tacoma embargo was lifted prematurely after someone leaked information onto a forum that quickly spread like digital wildfire. Regardless, based on the details of the latest evolution of Toyota’s famed light-duty pickup truck, we are happy to see that it kept what fans enjoy most and added more.

The 2024 Toyota Tacoma comes in eight trim levels. The newest one is the Tacoma Trailhunter, designed to be a factory overlander. It features a wide track suspension with push-button disconnecting front anti-roll bar, Old Man Emu position-sensitive remote reservoir shocks, and 33-inch Goodyear Territory R/T tires.

In addition, the i-FORCE MAX turbocharged hybrid powertrain produces 326 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft of torque. Standard off-road equipment includes heavy-duty skid plates, rock rails, a high-rise exhaust tip, and a passenger side-mounted air intake. Spotting a Trailhunter is easy thanks to its distinctive bronze-colored “TOYOTA” heritage-inspired grille featuring an integrated 20-inch LED light bar with white/yellow color-switching RIGID LED fog lamps.

Speaking of suspension, each variant of the 2024 Tacoma features a specifically tuned suspension setup. TRD Sport has red TRD sport-tuned shocks, while the TRD Off-Road grade is equipped with monotube Bilstein remote reservoir shocks for extended wheel travel. The TRD Pro comes with FOX’s new QS3 three-way adjustable internal bypass shocks.

Another new feature is the XtraCab long bed configuration which increases cargo space to haul gear for work or play. The max towing capacity for the 2024 Tacoma is 6,500 lbs. on SR5 i-FORCE and TRD PreRunner XtraCab variants. The max payload increases to 1,709 lbs. on the TRD Off-Road package.

The entry-level Toyota Tacoma SR comes standard with a 228 hp, 243 lb.-ft variant of the i-FORCE turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Moving up the trim hierarchy, the engine’s output increases to 278 hp and 317 lb.-ft paired with the new eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. But, if you opt for the optional six-speed manual transmission, the engine’s output is 270 hp and 310 lb.-ft of torque.

The interior has also been updated with an 8- or 14-inch multimedia touchscreen display. In addition, the Tacoma TRD Pro spec also debuts the IsoDynamic Performance Seat, designed to improve off-road driving control and comfort. Pricing and fuel economy on the 2024 Toyota Tacoma are set to be announced later this year.
