2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid Officially Coming Next Year

The new 2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid is officially coming alongside the gasoline, and all-electric versions. As far as we know, the new Toyota Tacoma will definitely be Tundra-inspired, featuring similar styling, a new platform, new powertrains, and many trims, and packages.

According to Toyota, there should be a wider variety of Tacomas than ever before. There will be models available with turbocharged I-4, hybridized V-6, and even an electric Tacoma is in the works as well. In case you didn’t know, this truck is a leader in its class, alongside a new Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado on the horizon.

2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid Design, Platform

The new 2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid will ride on a new TNGA-F platform. The global body-on-frame architecture will be also available on the models like the Lexus LX, Land Cruiser, Hilux, and the next-gen 4Runner. Thanks to that, the new Tacoma will be able to handle an array of powertrain options, body styles, and suspension options.

There are extended-and crew-cab models available, with short or long beds. On the design side, we expect the hybrid variant to be more eye-catching compared to the standard model, featuring a new grille and headlights. On the other hand, the all-electric variant will come with a closed grille, unique black wheels, and a pearl white color. Despite all the changes, the Tacoma will keep the same streetable coil springs.

Interior Features

At the moment, we don’t know what the new 2204 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid will bring compared to the standard model. The upcoming truck will probably introduce a new cabin filled with better materials and more technology.

In general, we’re expecting this truck version to receive the same treatment as the upcoming Tundra. This means you can count on a new larger infotainment screen, probably 14 inches, a leather steering wheel, a heated leather steering wheel, a panoramic roof with power tilt/slide, and more.

2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid Specs

When it comes to the engine, we believe the new 2024 Toyota Tacoma will use the same engine version as the Lexus NX350. This model uses a 2.4-liter turbocharged I-4 producing 275 hp as the base engine. The more fuel-friendly is definitely the new Tundra hybrid.

This model produces 389 hp thanks to a 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 paired with an electric motor and battery. A six-speed manual will likely be standard, while a 10-speed automatic will be optional or standard on some trims. Both rear and four-wheel drive will be available as well.

2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid Price, Release Date

The upcoming 2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid, alongside other variants, will arrive sometime next year, probably in the second half. At the same time, we expect its sibling, the all-electric Tundra, to debut as well.

The new Tacoma, as we said, will be made on the latest TNGA-F modular global body-on-frame architecture, which is shared with the Tundra but also the new Lexus LX, Land Cruiser, Hilux, and next-gen 4Runner. As for price, we expect the new Tacoma to start at $30,000 for a gas-powered model, while a hybrid model could be $40,000, and an all-electric variant at around $50,000.
