Big News for People Waiting on 2022 Toyota Tacoma

Two of the hottest 2022 Tacoma trims are finally here. See how you can get them.


Earlier this month I wrote a Torque News story about a 2022 Tacoma trim level that was missing in action. People have reported no sightings of the new 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro.

And believe me, since it is offered in Electric Lime Metallic color, you would not miss it if you had such an encounter.

The 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro was previously announced to be a few months behind the rest of the 2022 Tacoma trim levels. However, it is already March and not one single TRD Pro has arrived at dealerships.

But there is good news my friends. Tacoma TRD Pro and another anticipated trim level are on their way.

Toyota has scheduled shipments of the popular 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro to dealerships for March. Most will begin arriving the later part of this month. Some have already been delivered to select lucky dealers.

Buyers can choose between Electric Lime Metallic, Super White, Magnetic Gray Metallic, and Midnight Black Metallic.

2022 Tacoma Trail Edition

Also scheduled for deliveries beginning this month (March) are the 2022 Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition trucks.

This retooled model is based on SR5 Double Cab 4x4. A big selling point is Trail Edition Tacoma now has a 1.1-inch lift in front and a 0.5-inch lift in the rear.

Look for bronze-finished 16-inch wheels, standard locking rear differential, additional bed storage, black fabric seats with tan stitching, and 8-inch multimedia touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

I have driven and reviewed (on my ToyotaJeff Reviews YouTube channel) the 2022 Tacoma Trail Edition late last year, and it has quickly become my favorite Toyota Tacoma trim level. I appreciate the unique styling as well as the true off-road capabilities here.

Tacoma Trail Edition can be found in Army Green, Midnight Black Metallic, Super White, and Lunar Rock.

How to Buy 2022 Toyota Tacoma

If you are interested in either Tacoma TRD Pro or Tacoma Trail, now your attention can be directed at how to acquire one.

Since we are in the middle of a worldwide vehicle shortage, this process can be a bit uncertain and a little stressful.

Most of the initial shipments of both TRD Pro and Trail Edition will go to those people who have already reserved one with their dealerships.

As with nearly every popular vehicle, there will be some dealerships across the country who have one or two available for whatever reason. You may get lucky in that way.

My only other suggestion is to contact a dealership you trust and work well with to see how best to pre-order one that fits what you are looking for. More than likely, you will be asked to leave a deposit as low as $500 to hold your place in line and start your order.

I have had a 2022 Tacoma TRD PRO on order since December 2021 and the dealer still can't tell me when it will arrive or if it will be a 2022 or 2023. Any further news from anyone else?
