You don’t need to explain to the 2024 Tacoma that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. This Toyota truck has been the most attractive option for decades, and it knows it. That’s why the 2024 Toyota Tacoma is already bragging about looking great before its debut. From teasers and spy images, we can tell that it won’t let us down. 

Will the 2024 Toyota Tacoma be redesigned?

Recent teasers and easter eggs suggest that the 2024 Toyota Tacoma will be redesigned. The all-new Toyota Tacoma should carry on the tradition of being one of the best-looking trucks you can buy. 

A new silhouette shows the next-generation Toyota Tacoma with a more confident stance and shape. The front and rear ends look boxier and a little more aggressive to match the larger Toyota Tundra. 

This is a good sign because the new Toyota Tundra currently ranks as a good-looking option. It’s considered to be more appealing to the eye than the Ford F-150. This could be why the F-150 is already getting a mid-cycle refresh. 

The Tacoma could have headlights that frame the corner of the front bumper and a larger grille that incorporates amber LED lights. The more aggressive bumper could provide more off-roading clearance too. 

It could also have verticle tail lights with a beefier rear bumper and a more shapely design. The sides look a little trendier, and you can spot a spoiler on the roof. It’s safe to expect new wheel designs with larger, chunkier tires to complete the rugged look. 

The 2024 Tacoma could look like the mid-size Toyota electric truck concept with a different grille because the Tacoma Hybrid is expected to come out first. Unless the concept is actually the Tacoma EV. 

What engines does the 2024 Tacoma have? 

The official engines for the 2024 Toyota Tacoma haven’t been released, but we can at least expect the standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder unit with 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque to be dropped. 

While the solid 3.5-liter V6 engine with 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque would be missed, its fate hangs in the balance. It could be updated with more power or dropped. 

The 2024 Tacoma Hybrid could borrow from the Lexus RX Hybrid. It pairs a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor to generate 366 hp. 

Also, Motor1 shared that the new base engine could be the turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder option from the Toyota Highlander with 265 hp. 

The new Tacoma will ride on the TNGA-F platform, like the Tundra. That means it will have more space for hybrid and electric powertrains. However, the Toyota Tacoma EV isn’t expected to come out until after the new Tacoma Hybrid debuts. 

Will the 2024 Tacoma interior be better?

Yes, spy shots have displayed a much improved 2024 Toyota Tacoma interior. You can spot significant tech upgrades such as a larger infotainment screen and digital gauge cluster. The screens could have an improved resolution and more camera views. 

Plus, some of the cheaper plastics could be replaced by higher-quality materials with upscale textures and attractive patterns. It’s safe to expect a larger sunroof and power rear window for fresh air. 

A big improvement could be made to storage space with more room under the rear seat that’s easier to access. However, the current Tacoma has a solid amount of cubbies and trays to utilize. 

We might get the first concrete details about the 2024 Tacoma during the New York Auto Show on April 4th, so stay tuned for the latest updates.
