The 2024 Toyota Tacoma will offer a Trailhunter trim that is equipped for off-roading.

Included in the off-road-ready equipment is an ARB rear bumper and large tow attachments.

The latest teaser from Toyota confirms these features, as well as the Trailhunter’s branded headlight bezels.

Toyota intends to increase Tacoma’s allure to off-roaders with the 2024 model. After initially previewing the new truck in hybrid TRD Pro form, Toyota is now providing a glimpse of the forthcoming Trailhunter trim.


Though the Tacoma appears to be the first Toyota production vehicle to bear the Trailhunter moniker, we have heard of this new nameplate before. This distinction belongs to the Tundra Trailhunter concept from the 2016 SEMA exhibition. Like its full-size concept siblings, the Tacoma Trailhunter targets the overlanding community. What that entails precisely remains to be seen.

We can affirm that the Tacoma Trailhunter will be equipped with a rear bumper sourced from ARB (almost certainly made of steel) and a large frame-mounted tow hook. In addition, the model has darkened headlamp bezels with Trailhunter branding, flared fenders, and what appear to be all-terrain tyres.

We predict that a significant portion of what made the Tundra Trailhunter concept (shown below) so unique will also distinguish the Tacoma Trailhunter from its inferior relatives. This includes a suspension setup particular to the trim, several underbody skid plates, roof racks, and off-road driving lights.

The Tundra Trailhunter concept also included a bed rack with a roof-top tent affixed on it, a refrigerator, and custom in-bed storage features to make off-grid living a little more tolerable. We would be astonished if Toyota did not offer these components as optional accessories. However, we do not expect such features to make it onto the production model’s standard features list.

Toyota is tight-lipped about the 2024 Tacoma and its less off-road-oriented models. Nonetheless, 2024 Toyota Tacoma customers seeking a hybrid-powered off-road pickup or a factory-built overlander will want to take a look. When exactly Toyota intends to reveal the vehicle in its entirety remains unknown.
