Later this year, the eagerly awaited 2024 Toyota Tacoma officially arrives at dealerships. When it does, the mid-size truck’s base price will be $32,995, which includes the $1,495 destination cost. Although the base price of the new Tacoma is $2,900 more than that of the existing 2023 model, it comes equipped with additional equipment and power right out of the box.
The base SR model of the 2024 Tacoma is equipped with a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 228 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque. When you upgrade to the SR5, you get a six-speed manual transmission and a more potent version of the same turbocharged engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
The starting price of the Tacoma SR5 is $37,695, while the TRD Prerunner, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road model, and range-topping Limited trim are respectively $39,595, $40,895, and $53,595. All-wheel drive costs an additional $3,200 for base SR and SR5 models and $2,400 more for the TRD Sport trim. Standard equipment on the TRD Off-Road and Limited variants includes four-wheel drive.
The 2024 Tacoma remains one of the most economical options in the group when compared to other trucks in the market. The only starting prices that are lower are those of the base Nissan Frontier S and Chevrolet Colorado WT:
Additional standard features for the Tacoma include an electronically controlled two-speed transfer case with high- and low-range gearing added to four-wheel-drive variants, and a new limited-slip differential for rear-drive models such as the SR and SR5. All Tacoma models starting in 2024 will come equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 as standard equipment. This system offers features like lane-departure alert with steering assistance, full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane tracing assistance, pre-collision with pedestrian detection, and a new Proactive Driving system that assists in pre-loading the brakes and active steering in heavy traffic—even when cruise control is disabled.
The SR and SR5 come with a basic 7.0-inch digital cluster, while the other versions have a 12.3-inch cluster. The inside features a new 8.0-inch touchscreen or an optional 14.0-inch display. Still,of size, the new Tacoma adopts Toyota’s latest infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
