Following a bit of an early leak via some patent drawings, the debut of the all-new 2024 Toyota Tacoma has been a slow process with teaser after teaser released by the automaker itself – a list that includes the TRD Pro version’s Fox shocks and hybrid powertrain, an overlanding-focused Trailhunter variant, and the availability of a manual transmission. Just last week, Toyota finally revealed that the new Tacoma will make its official debut on May 19th – a little more than a week after the unveiling of the all-new North American Ford Ranger – and also gave us a few more shadowy pictures of different variants. Now, the 2024 Toyota Tacoma has seemingly leaked again, this time via Reddit.
There, a user managed to conjure up a single photo of the 2024 Toyota Tacoma via the automaker’s official site, more than a week before its official debut. The image appears to be of a TRD Pro version of the new mid-size pickup, complete with a light bar in the grille (just like the Tundra and Sequoia TRD Pro models), along with a hood bulge, beefy fender flares, and all-terrain tires.
Overall, the styling here matches up quite nicely with the previous leak and teasers from Toyota itself, seemingly lending it some legitimacy, even if we don’t know for sure if it was in fact taken directly form the automaker’s site.
Regardless, we do know that the 2024 Toyota Tacoma will be available with some sort of i-Force hybrid powertrain, as the company alluded to last week. Currently, there’s just one version of that particular powerplant in Toyota’s lineup – a twin-turbocharged 3.4L V6 and electric motor combo that produces 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque in the Tundra pickup and Sequoia SUV. Expected to ride on the new TNGA-F platform that also underpins the new-for-2022 Tundra, the 2024 Tundra also seems likely to be available in extended (Access) cab and four-door cab configurations with at least two different bed lengths.

Honestly (based on this single photo), I like the current gen Taco and the Gen 6 Ranger better. This just looks off for some reason. Maybe too much emphasis on the lower portion of the front end? Could just be a bad angle and future pics will redeem it (for me).
The new Tacoma looks like it’s trying to hard. Too many weird lines that don’t make sense.
Love this taco! ford could use some design inspiration. Even Nissan looks prettier with the same quality issues
This is a rendering right?! USELESS
