The cited forum has also uploaded the order guide for the Canadian market, which begins with the SR5 trim level rather than the SR. Truth be told, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma isn't available in SR flavor either.
The beating heart of the SR5 is a 278-horsepower turbo four-pot engine with 317 pound-feet (430 Nm) on tap. It's connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Standard features also include 17" alloy wheels, manual air conditioning, a 7.0" multi-information display, six-way manually adjustable front seats with heating, LED headlamps, Blind Sport Monitor, and the Rear Cross Traffic Alert system.
SR5 customers in Canada need to make do with the 6-foot bed. The 5-foot bed is exclusive to the TRD Sport+ manual, TRD Off Road manual, and TRD Off Road Premium automatic. Speaking of which, opting for the manual transmission results in 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet (420 Nm) of twist.
The SR that Canadians won't get drops to 228 horsepower and 243 pound-feet (330 Nm) because Toyota removes vibration mounts and cooling equipment from said engine. Attached below, the order guide for Canada doesn't list the Trailhunter and PreRunner. On the other hand, we do know the Trailhunter overlanding spec is coming sometime in 2024 with the i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain.
Previewed by a Tundra-based concept at the 2022 SEMA Show, the Tacoma Trailhunter boasts a bed-integrated air compressor, position sensitive 2.5" forged monotube shocks with piggyback-style rear external reservoirs, a bed utility bar, a steel rear bumper, and 33" rubber boots supplied by Goodyear. The hybrid system develops 326 horsepower and 465 pound-feet (630 Nm) of twist.
Gifted with a nicer cabin and better styling than its predecessor, the fourth-gen Tacoma may not be a reliability champ. Why? Because it's joined at the hip to the Tundra. For the 2024 model year, the Tacoma switches to the GA-F platform that Toyota also uses in the new Land Cruiser Prado (a.k.a. 250 series).
Expected to start at $28,600 in the United States market, the redesigned Tacoma is – without a shadow of a doubt – going to sell in greater numbers than segment rivals. The outgoing model is king of the hill in the first half of 2023, having sold 116,845 examples from January 2023 through June 2023.
Nissan's long-running Frontier is the second truck in the segment in terms of commercial success, with Nissan reporting 34,139 deliveries in the first half of 2023. The Chevrolet Colorado and Jeep Gladiator moved 33,165 and 27,326 examples, respectively.
