Drawing inspiration from Toyota Baja race trucks and the heritage of their truck DNA, the design of the new Tacoma captures the essence of off-road adventure. Embracing the concept of a “Badass Adventure Machine,” the CALTY team of designers sought to reflect the engineered toughness and athletic attitude of the Tacoma. While maintaining a family resemblance among Toyota trucks, each with its own distinct personality, the Tacoma showcases its unique characteristics. The narrow body and wide upper grille pay homage to the original HiLux, while features like aggressive skid plates highlight its ruggedness. Signature design elements such as high-mount headlamps, functional side air intakes, a hexagonal grille motif, and integrated roof and tailgate spoilers further enhance its distinctive appearance.

2024 Toyota Tacoma interior design maximizes its cabin space to cater to diverse needs. Gas models feature significantly increased storage capacity under the rear seat, three times more than the current generation, and the rear seatback can be folded down flat to provide additional loading space. An integrated shelf in the instrument panel allows passengers to conveniently store small items, while MOLLE panels on the center console and door panels offer versatile storage options. Rubber grips are strategically placed on the passenger side of the center console, all doors, and the front passenger side, enhancing practicality.

The all-new Toyota Tacoma introduces a range of advanced technology and upgrades to the cabin. It features an 8-inch or optional 14-inch multimedia touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The cabin offers convenient features like Qi wireless charging, USB-C ports, and a digital gauge cluster. The Tacoma also includes a Smart Key System with push-button start and the option for a Digital Key that connects with smartphones for remote vehicle access. Additionally, there is a compact Smart Card key available for easy carrying. These enhancements provide a more connected and convenient experience for Tacoma drivers.


In the fourth-generation Tacoma lineup, there are a total of eight trim levels to choose from. Six of these trims have been carried over from the previous generation and include the SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Pro. Additionally, there are two new additions to the lineup. The first is the Trailhunter trim, which comes equipped with overlanding-specific gear. The second is the return of the TRD PreRunner, a two-wheel drive trim designed for off-road adventures. Toyota considers both the TRD Pro and Trailhunter trims to be the flagship models of the Tacoma lineup, representing the pinnacle of the range.
