Toyota is back again with a fresh teaser for the all-new 2024 Tacoma on ‘Taco Tuesday,’ confirming a brand-new trim level named ‘Trailhunter.’ While details about the new model are still scarce, Toyota has promised that it will be an exceptional off-roader.
“Developed from the ground up for those seeking extended adventures, the Tacoma Trailhunter will build upon Toyota’s legendary off-road and overlanding credibility with purpose-built engineering and robust components,” the automaker wrote in a release today.
Toyota released a pair of images teasing the all-new 2024 Tacoma Trailhunter. The front shot features the headlight housing with the “Trailhunter” nameplate engraved on it while the rear shot provides a more detailed look at the truck.
In addition to the compass located on the lower left side of the tailgate, the rear shot of the Trailhunter reveals an ARB bumper and a red recovery point. As the largest manufacturer of 4×4 accessories in Australia with almost 50 years of experience in off-roading, ARB is known for producing rugged and durable components that can handle the toughest terrain.
However, ARB isn’t the only company with a storied name. Trailhunter can also trace its origins back, albeit not as far. In 2021, Toyota applied the name to a Tundra concept at SEMA, where it envisioned the Trailhunter as a no-compromise overlanding vehicle. The automaker had described the Trailhunter model as “purpose-built” to appeal to “outdoor enthusiasts who crave off-the-grid expeditions.” With its heavy-duty suspension, brush bar, roof-mounted lights, bed tent, and more, the Trailhunter was ideally suited for long drives off the beaten path.
The aforementioned concept truck also featured ARB accessories. At the time, Toyota promised that the Trailhunter concept previewed a line of vehicles based on its trucks and SUVs. It had stated that these vehicles would serve as the “flagship offering” for each respective model, indicating that they could be even better equipped than the current TRD and TRD Pro variants.
While the exact date of the unveiling of the new 2024 Tacoma remains unclear, Toyota’s teaser campaign is in full swing, indicating that the event is imminent. Toyota has already confirmed that the Tacoma will be offered with a hybrid i-Force Max Powertrain.
