Next Toyota Tacoma Teased

We've had one truck teased, now it's time for another.

Toyota has dropped a pic of the next Tacoma on Instagram. Of course, as is usually the case with teasers, we can't see very much, nor do we know very much in terms of specs.

So there's really not much to say -- but we're guessing the truck will drop soon as a 2024 model. We'll note that the New York Auto Show is just a few weeks away -- but there is no Toyota presser on the schedule. We can't rule out the possibility of a separate launch event sometime soon, or a debut in L.A. this fall.

Hang tight, Tacoma lovers. The ancient Taco will be replaced soon enough.

    Silhouetting yourself on a ridge like that is an excellent way to get yourself shot ( Skylining).

    "Don't you know there's a special military operation on?"

      @lou, makes sense-use whatever you can commandeer.

    Another ICEbox? Pass. Where are you going to fill your oil addiction when all the gas stations disappear for lack of demand? I want a pickup that I can actually use for a few decades.

      I don't call mine a Taco, but it's a common nickname among Tacoma owners - just read some of the threads on the Tacoma forums over at

    I own a 2013 Tacoma, and I was disappointed in the 2016 "redesign". Sure, some of the sheetmetal was different, and it got a new frame, engine, transmission, rear axle, and interior, but overall, the truck looked similar (not exactly a redesign, and the switch from the torquey 4.0l 1GR-FE to the whiny 3.5l 2GR-FKS was a downgrade IMHO. No turbo diesel offering, which was disappointing, and no rear disc brakes.

    Hopefully the fourth-gen will be more of an actual redesign, won't look like the horrifically ugly Tundra, and will still offer an NA V6, not a turbo 4 like the Ranger and Colarado/Canyon.
