2024 Toyota Tacoma Leaks Weeks Before Official Reveal

Leaked / 22 Comments

Here's your first look at the all-new midsize pickup from Toyota.

An image of the new 2024 Toyota Tacoma has been leaked, giving us our best look yet at the brand-new pickup truck. Uncovered by a user on the Tacoma 4G forum, we can see the Ranger rival in all its glory. The front end resembles the larger Tundra, with a larger radiator grille flanked by two new headlights.

The vehicle seen here appears to be the TRD Pro derivative, which was teased a couple of weeks ago. Chunky black-painted fender flares give the truck plenty of aggression, prominent hood scoops, and menacing front fascia. Note the roof, A-pillars, mirror caps, and door handles have been treated to a gloss black treatment.

A light bar sits beneath the front grille badging, handy when heading off-road in the dark.

The TRD Pro derivative will arrive with chunky off-road tires and Fox QS3 shocks, which reportedly boast remarkable off-road abilities. At the time, we also noticed the new Tacoma would use disc brakes at the rear instead of the archaic drum setup utilized by the existing model.

Sadly, there are still no images of the rear, so we will have to wait until May 19 to get a proper look at the new Tacoma. Still, this isn't the first time images of the Tacoma have leaked. In January, patent images were uncovered, giving us an idea of what to expect. Based on these designs, it's clear that the base model will do without the hood scoops, chunky bumpers, and accessories seen above.

Of course, this is just one variant, and we still have the Trailhunter variant to look forward to. Whether the Trailhunter will supplant the TRD Pro as the top dog in the Tacoma range is unclear.


The new trim level will be aimed at adventurers and those who enjoy overlanding. This model will wear accessories from ARB, a well-known aftermarket specialist in the off-roading arena. An earlier teaser showed us an ARB-branded rear bumper and tow hooks. We anticipate more features to be revealed when the vehicle is revealed later this month.

So, what else can we expect from the 2024 Tacoma? Well, we know that Toyota will offer electrified powertrains, presumably to replace the more powerful V6 variants. We do expect non-hybrid models to be made available as well. No details have been shared yet, but we wouldn't be surprised to see the turbocharged 2.4-liter engine that does duty in the Crown sedan. If that's the case, expect as much as 340 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.

Other great news includes an available six-speed manual transmission, which should please the three-pedal brigade.
