Toyota Tacoma – Review, Specs, Pricing, Features, Videos and More
There’s an all-new Toyota Tacoma on sale and it’s quite a bit different than the current model. Looking like a scaled down model of the full-size Tundra, the mid-size Tacoma will offer a turbocharged four-cylinder engine or an optional hybrid one. The latter makes 326 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, there are rugged versions of the Tacoma for those that like to go off road. The best news though maybe that a six-speed manual is still available.

2024 Toyota Tacoma First Drive Review: Modern Meal
How do you revamp a product that claims almost 40 percent of its segment? If you’re Toyota: carefully.
Don’t get me wrong, the 2024 Toyota Tacoma is a wholly new product: platform, engines, tech—you name it. For this fourth-gen mid-size truck, the brand has taken a detail-oriented focus, keeping the feel and broad spectrum of flavors the Taco has enjoyed for years, with a modern twist.
Toyota invited AutoGuide down to a ranch in the hills outside of Malibu to sample the new Taco. After a full day of driving on road and off, here's what we found.

2024 Toyota Tacoma Hands-On Preview: Adds Hybrid and Trailhunter, Keeps Manual
New Tacoma will come in eight trims; TRD Pro is a standard hybrid, arrives early 2024.
Toyota late Thursday evening debuted the 2024 Toyota Tacoma on Hawaii’s big island. You might think coming all the way out here for a reveal is a little extra, but you underestimate the importance of the Taco. (AutoGuide is also here to drive the new 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander, which you can read/watch about in the near future.)
Think of the Tacoma as Toyota’s F-150. Actually, this mid-sizer is a bigger deal than that; the Tacoma snatches up over 39 percent of its segment, and the Blue Oval’s best-seller only manages 32 in the full-size market. Pfft, slacker. The Tacoma is the best-selling vehicle in Hawaii—not truck, vehicle. Needless to say, this is an important model for Toyota, and the Japanese brand is coming correct with eight trims, a new hybrid powertrain, a wild patent-pending seat—and some classic features for a healthy dose of fan-service.
