2024 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro i-Force Max test drive in a high speed dirt track


After nearly two decades as the champion of the mid-size pickup truck market, the Toyota Tacoma is ready for its next chapter.

This go-anywhere truck is entirely new for 2024 with epic adventures in mind, improving upon every winning aspect that has made it a stalwart for truck buyers for years along with Toyota’s legendary quality, durability, and reliability and much, much more.

A notable addition to the mid-size, body-on-frame pickup segment is Tacoma’s i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain, which is the most powerful powertrain ever offered on Tacoma.

This powertrain is available on TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road and Limited grades, and comes standard on the TRD Pro and Trailhunter models.

The i-FORCE MAX combines the same 2.4-liter engine found in the i-FORCE grades and adds a 48-horsepower electric motor integrated into the eight-speed transmission that draws power from a 1.87-kWh NiMH battery pack.

This combination results in a total system output of up to 326 horsepower and an impressive 465 lb.-ft. of torque, nearly doubling the torque output of the current generation’s V-6 engine.

When equipped with i-FORCE MAX, Tacoma can effortlessly ascend a 6% interstate grade without the need to downshift, enhancing the comfort of long road trips in a Tacoma.
