The fourth-generation Toyota Tacoma will be unveiled before May 19. The 2024 Tacoma appeared on fan site tacoma4g.com after some fans hacked onto the Japanese automaker’s website.
“We are excited to see the enthusiasm around the new Tacoma and we are looking forward to the official reveal on May 19th,” Toyota said of its plans to disclose the vehicle globally in less than two weeks.
The third-generation Tacoma outsold the following three models combined last year, as shown in the leaked photo. Toyota’s decades-long supremacy is in doubt as Tacoma faces a surge of new challengers this year.

Against trend, the upcoming Tacoma has a 6-speed manual.
Toyota may be developing the Trailhunter edition, a more powerful off-roader. It will compete with Tacoma’s rising rivals like the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.
Chevrolet will fight back. Mike Macphee, Chevy’s marketing and advertising manager for the Colorado launch, stated, “This truck has been designed to go head-to-head” with Tacoma.
Ford, meanwhile, hopes a revamped Ranger will help. The Ranger Raptor, the name for the most powerful F-150 truck and Bronco SUV, will compete with the Tacoma TRD.
It required “sleuthing.”
“By sleuthing on the Toyota website and matching up the hosting domain,” Doug Liu, co-owner of tacoma4g.com, told Automotive News. Liu said a site user fooled around with earlier Tacoma URLs and found “this image of the next-gen Taco in all its glory.”
Unless we find further leaks, the 2024 Toyota Tacoma will be shown on May 19.
