After last year’s introduction of a new generation of Tacoma, we don’t expect many changes to the 2025 Toyota Tacoma. Upcoming Tacoma will continue to ride on the TNGA-F platform which will guarantee good driving capabilities. Also, we hope that Toyota will additionally work on improving riding quality. And the result of that work will be to further strengthen the position as one of the best choices in the middle-size truck segment. But we also need to wait to see what the new generation of Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado have to bring to the table. The one thing we know for sure is that this category is full of good choices. Like never before.
There are rumors spreading around that Toyota will offer a more powerful powertrain with TRD Pro. But we need to wait for the official release date to see if this is true or not. The only thing we are sure of for now is that Hybrid mills will get a slight power boost. And also the front facia of the truck will get a slight redesign. That will be followed by a new headlight revision.
2025 Toyota Tacoma Specifications
The upcoming 2025 Toyota Tacoma will feature the same engine options as the previous model. But thanks to some improvements all of the powertrain lineups will get a slight power boost.
The base engine will be a 2.4-liter turbo and he will have 235 horsepower and 255 pound feet of torque. Then there will be an I-Force 2.4 turbo gasoline inline-four motor. This mill will come in 2 power outputs, 280 and 295 horsepower. And the most potent variation will be a Hybrid with 335 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. All powertrains will be paired with a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic. The truck will be built on the TNGA-F platform and this guarantees us good driving capabilities and reliable and reliable chassis. Also, it promises good towing and tow ratings. We expect to see the same numbers as last year. And that will be 6500 pounds for towing and for the max payload rating we expect 1700 pounds.
2025 Toyota Tacoma Interior and Exterior
The 2025 Toyota Tacoma will have just a few minor improvements on the exterior and interior. Like we already mention front facia will get a minor revision. That will include a new design of the grille that will be slightly more aggressive. Also, headlights will get a new unique design.
For the interior, we don’t expect any big changes. Toyota will probably do a few small tweaks to make the interior more comfortable for longer rides.
New Tacoma will come in seven trim levels just like last year’s model. It will start with SR.
Then it will be SR5. Followed by TRD PreRunner which will get a all-wheel drive and rear locking differential. Then there will be TRD Sport which will get upgraded aluminum 18-inch wheels and a more luxurious interior. TRD Offroad will be basic offroad trim and it will boost an all-wheel, underbody protection, and led light bar on the roof. Limited will be luxurious trim with leather seats. Also, this trim will get a hybrid powertrain. The last and most expensive trim will be TRD PRO.
2025 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO
Like we already mention this will be the ultimate offroad model for the 2025 Toyota Tacoma. This variant will be equipped with the most powerful powertrain that Toyota will offer with Tacoma. And that mill will be coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Also, the part of standard equipment will be all-wheel drive and 33-inch all-terrain tires. Also, we can expect a lot of changes to the interior. Starting from a redesigned front bumper with underbody protection. Also, the rock guards will be a part of the standard equipment. The suspension will be also adapted to ultimate offroad challenges. And it will include a rear-locking differential, crawl mode, and much more. We will see improved IsoDynamic seats on the front row.
Price and Release Date
As of now, the pricing specifics for the 2024 Toyota Tacoma are still awaiting confirmation. And Toyota has not yet disclosed any details about the 2025 model.
For the ongoing 2024 Tacoma version, the SR model starts at $28,250, while the TRD Pro model reaches up to $47,685. It is foreseeable that the starting price for the base model will see a slight increase, and there might be more substantial price hikes for the higher-end variants. In the realm of the TRD Pro. It’s likely that their pricing will compete with models like the Ranger Raptor and GMC Canyon AT4X, surpassing the $50,000 mark.
Expectations are that the pricing trend will parallel that of the 2024 model, maintaining a consistent range. Following the established pattern from previous years. It is projected that the 2025 Toyota Tacoma will be unveiled during the summer of 2024.
