2024 Toyota Tacoma: Everything We Know So FarToyota

Toyota is expected to reveal an all-new Tacoma pickup sometime in May 2023. Leading up to the launch, the Japanese automaker has dropped a handful of teasers to drum up hype for the highly desirable mid-size truck. Here's what we know so far.

There Will Be a Manual Transmission Option

Much to everyone's surprise, Toyota confirmed on May 2 the 2024 Tacoma will be available with a manual transmission. At a time when every automaker is abandoning the stick shift, this is a major win for enthusiasts and a decision that makes us even more excited to drive the truck.

It Will Have an Optional i-Force Max Hybrid Powertrain

Toyota plans for its entire lineup to be hybridized or electric by 2025. The automaker confirmed on April 4 it will offer a version of its i-Force Max Hybrid Powertrain—currently available on cars like the Tundra and Sequoia—on the Tacoma. It's unclear the twin-turbo V-6 will make it to the smaller platform. With 583 lb-ft of torque available, we hope it does.

Here It Is Testing on the Road

While Toyota has yet to show off the new Tacoma's design, The Fast Lane Now YouTube channel caught a heavily camouflaged prototype testing on the road back in 2022. The spy video gives us a good idea of what to expect in terms of sizing for the new mid-size pickup.
