See what is new for 2023 Toyota Tacoma. And when.


We are starting to see new model year releases for many popular Toyota models. The 2023 Camry has started hitting dealerships with some cool updates and changes.

And now we have news about 2023 Tacoma.

2023 Toyota Tacoma Release Date

According to Toyota, people interested in a 2023 Toyota Tacoma can start getting excited around the time frame of late September. This could, of course, also mean you will really begin seeing a larger volume into October and through the end of the year as well.

This coincides with the same time range for 2023 Tundra too.

In usual TRD Pro fashion, Electric Lime Metallic has passed the torch to Solar Octane for TRD Pro. But Electric Lime can now be found on both 2023 Tacoma TRD Off-Road and Tacoma TRD Sport.

Any news on the Army Green color? My dealer just called and told me that effective immediately. Toyota has discontinued Army Green. I've had a deposit down for 4 months on a Army Green TRDOR. So I directed them to refund my money and ill look at another manufacturer. I think the 2023 colors are not good at all. Same with last years lime green. Yuck!

Can't wait for the Hybrid Version to come out, wish it was sooner, gonna be a long year to wait. Have considered the Current Tacoma and Tundra, but want really good MPG so I will wait for the Tacoma Hybrid.
