The 2024 Tacoma offers an array of powertrain options to cater to different driver needs. The base engine, a 2.4-liter turbo, delivers 228 hp and 243 lb-ft, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The volume powertrain combo is expected to be the 278-horsepower, eight-speed-auto version, which also has the highest towing capacity of 6,500 pounds. The powertrain lineup is rounded out by the star of the show, the i-Force Max turbo-four, with an electric motor that provides additional power when needed.
