Powering the new Tacoma is the standard i-FORCE turbocharged 2.4L 4-cylinder. Horsepower on the low-end for the entry-level SR is 228 horsepower, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The same engine on all other trims increases power by 50 horses, to a maximum of 278 horsepower paired to the same 8-speed tranny.

Need more power and torque? Go for the hybrid-powered Tacoma with the i-FORCE MAX, putting down an impressive 326 horsepower total output, also with the 8-speed transmission. The electric motor alone makes 48 horsepower. The hybrid’s 465 lb.-ft. torque blows past the gas-powered Tacoma’s maximum torque rated at 317 lb.-ft.

2024 Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity

We know the 278-hp gas-powered 2.4L turbo will tow a maximum of 6,500 pounds. That’s the same towing capacity as the 2020 Tacoma and down from the 2023 Tacoma’s 6,800 pounds. The turbo hybrid will pull 6,000 pounds with a 1,709-pound payload. These towing numbers are on the lower side, considering most mid-size pickups are rated to tow around 7,500 pounds. We asked Toyota why this was, and the reason seems to be based on reliability over vanity towing numbers.

In other words, increasing towing specs adds more moving parts; the engine takes a small hit. Considering Tacoma owners don’t typically use their mid-size pickups for pulling duties, the trade-off wasn’t worth it. Frankly, 6,500 pounds is sufficient to pull most small things like RVs, boats, and such. And if towing is a major buying factor, then go for the full-size Tundra that basically doubles what the Tacoma tows, at around 12,000 pounds maximum.

If you’re taking your Taco off-road, here are some other vital specs, including ground clearance, suspension, and more. Also worth noting, all 2024 Tacomas get Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 as standard — a suite of safety features including lane departure warning, road sign assist, auto high beams, pre-collision & pedestrian detection, proactive driving assist, and radar cruise control.
