2024 toyota tacoma is finally here and offers so many different features and configurations. However, even with such differences, of a pickup truck One thing is consistent throughout the lineup. truck, is not only warmer than the previous generation model. There’s a lot to cover, so I’ll break it down into sections so you can easily find the important details. Keep scrolling to see them all.

body and chassis

of Tacoma Built on the same TNGA-F body-on-frame platform used in the tundra, sequoia and land cruiser. All of these are significantly larger than the Tacoma. Downsizing has mainly resulted in shortening the frame and wheelbase, resulting in the elimination of the front crossmember and a significantly shorter front overhang compared to larger trucks. Some of the other cross members and mounting points have been tweaked as well, and the Tacoma isn’t as big as a larger car, nor does it need such heavy-duty features, so to save cost and weight, these Slightly thinner gauge steel is used in some sections of the members. vehicle.

A new body that looks like it’s been scaled down tundra It has some hints of the old Tacoma, mostly high-strength steel with a bit of aluminum in the top and tailgate. Somewhat surprisingly, Toyota continues to offer both extended and quad cabs. Extended cabs come with a 6ft bed only, while quad cabs can be fitted with either a standard 5ft bed or an optional 6ft unit. Interestingly, the extended cab has only two seats, with the area behind it dedicated to storage with a fully lockable trash can.

As for suspension, all Tacoma fronts use a double-wishbone, coil-spring design. But the rear changes. His SR, SR5 and TRD PreRunner models at base continue to use live axles with leaf springs. Only this vehicle is adopted as a TNGA-F vehicle. The high trim has a new multi-link solid axle design with coil springs. There are also suspension variations when it comes to shocks, as the TRD Sport, TRD Offroad, Limited, TRD Pro and Trail Hunter have their own versions. Sport has stiff shocks for road use, Offroad has remote reservoir Bilsteins for offroad use, Limited has electronically adjustable shocks, Pro has manually adjustable remote reservoir Fox Off It comes with road shocks (plus upgraded front upper control arms), and the Trail Hunter comes with Oldman Emu remote reservoir shocks. His two in the latter are 2 inches taller in the front and 1.5 inches taller in the rear than other comparable Tacomas. There’s also an electronic anti-roll bar disconnect for the front suspension, which is claimed to improve clarity by 10%.

The brakes are also upgraded compared to the previous Tacoma, all with 4-wheel discs. break. The TRD version has a larger front brake rotor, hybrid The model adds a larger rear. The steering also changes with electric power assist.

When it comes to capacity, the Tacoma has a maximum. traction It is rated at 6,500 lbs and has a maximum payload of 1,709 lbs. These will degrade depending on powertrain, cab and trim configurations. Toyota also boasts about a 7% increase in bed volume under the rear seats of the quad cab and a 300% increase in storage space under the rear seats.

engine and transmission

The Tacoma’s base engine is a turbocharged 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. As for the engine itself, it’s pretty much the same across all models, but there are multiple outputs. SR gets the least powerful version at: 228 Horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque. This is largely because Toyota has removed the cooling and vibration mounts that are only needed on the higher power versions in order to keep the price down. Its high output is 278 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque for the eight-speed automatic, and 270 hp and 310 lb-ft for the six-speed manual. Both transmissions are available in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

The other engine on offer is also a turbo 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, battery and an electric motor. The electric motor produces 48 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque and is powered by a 1.87 kWh Ni-MH battery pack. Combined power with the gas engine is 326 horsepower and torque is 465 lb-ft. In addition to the huge amount of power and torque, the hybrid also adds 2.4 kW of onboard power for all kinds of accessories and tools. This hybrid is only available with an 8-speed automatic transmission.Unfortunately Toyota has not announced fuel consumption The number of this engine or entry-level engine.

Two-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain option, and traditional four-wheel drive with a low-mileage transfer case is also available. Both come standard with a limited-slip differential. However, an electronically locking rear differential is also available on the four-wheel drive model, and is standard on the TRD PreRunner, an off-road oriented two-wheel drive model. Limited trim is available with full-time four-wheel drive, but only with hybrid engines.

Toyota also says its CRAWL Control off-road cruise control system now runs quieter. Hill descent control is still available, and manual-transmission models are equipped with a clutch-start cancel button, like past Tacomas.

TRD Pro and Trail Hunter

Two of Tacoma’s trims deserve special attention, especially since one of them, the Trail Hunter, is completely new. We’ll get to that later, but first he has to talk about the TRD Pro. Tacoma’s most performance-oriented off-road version. It has a hybrid engine only and is equipped with the aforementioned adjustable Fox shocks, sway bar disconnect and suspension lift. Features an off-road design front bumper, wide fender flares, ARB steel rear bumper and recovery hooks. These fenders cover 33″ Goodyear Territory R/T off-road tires. Toyota also provided figures for the TRD Pro’s approach angle, breakover angle and departure angle, which are 33.8 degrees, 23.5 degrees and 25.7 degrees respectively. There are plenty of cameras to help you maneuver off-road and hook up your trailer.

But the true centerpiece of the TRD Pro is a pair of bucket seats. This is no ordinary seat. These seats have suspension. Specifically, it has ball joints and a set of vertical and lateral air-over-oil shock absorbers. The air pressure can be adjusted according to personal preference and weight. And the idea is that these seats help prevent the driver and passengers from being swung around. This reduces fatigue and improves visibility and confidence during high-speed off-road driving. You can also lock it in place in case you want to get back on the road and hear the truck’s feedback a little more directly. And rightly so, they have. Crash tested, fully compatible with all factory safety equipment, but also retains most power regulation, in addition to heating and ventilation functions. The only thing lost is power recline due to lack of space for suspension components.

Well, the newly added trail hunter is here. It has a lot in common with the TRD Pro, including bumpers and fender flares. The tires are the same, but wrapped around unique bronze wheels. These bronze accents also extend to the vintage-style grille and interior accents. The suspension lift is the same, but Oldman Emu shocks are used instead. The bed also has a utility bar with MOLLE attachment points so you can strap on a variety of equipment. In the trail hunter’s bed, air compressor For refilling tires and other items.

Interior and other features

The Tacoma’s cabin has been completely redesigned, but it still feels very sturdy, with sculpted panels and rubber grips and knobs throughout. Standard equipment includes a 7-inch instrument cluster screen and an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen. These can be upgraded to 12.3-inch and 14-inch screens respectively. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, with optional wireless device charging.

Toyota added a few other nifty features inside. The upgraded JBL sound system has a center speaker on the dashboard that can be removed and used as a portable Bluetooth speaker. And the QR code is hidden on the driver’s side of the cabin. This code will take the owner to a site with his 3D printer plans for all kinds of accessories such as lanterns and tools his kit.

The Tacoma also comes standard with excellent safety and convenience features. It has automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keeping, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beam headlights.
