Good News for 2022 Toyota Tacoma Buyers
This has been a challenging year for people in the market for a midsize truck. Especially Toyota Tacoma.
With the vehicle shortage drastically limiting the production of Toyota trucks, it is more difficult than ever to find the perfect Tacoma.
Hard to find Toyota Tacoma
One of the most difficult vehicles to find anywhere in the country is a 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro in Lunar Rock. Same goes for Lunar Rock Tundra, Sequoia and 4Runner.
Many people have given deposits for a pre-ordered 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro and have been waiting for months and months. At this point, since production for 2021 Tacoma is finished, those people not receiving theirs yet will miss out.
The question now is what to do next. What should you do if you really have your heart set on a Toyota Tacoma in Lunar Rock?
Well, luckily for 2022 there is new hope. Not quite like “Star Wars: A New Nope” but close.
2022 Toyota Tacoma
Lunar Rock is now available in multiple trim levels across the 2022 Toyota Tacoma board.
Potential buyers can find Lunar Rock in 2022 Tacoma TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, SR5 and Trail Edition.
A possible solution for those missing out on Lunar Rock Tacoma TRD Pro could be to switch to a 2022 Tacoma in other trim levels.
Both 2022 Tacoma Trail and TRD Off-Road now have locking rear differential, so a Lunar Rock in those trims could make sense for off-roading enthusiasts. Tacoma TRD Off-Road also comes standard with multi-terrain select and crawl control like a TRD Pro.
2022 Tacoma TRD Sport
Tacoma TRD Sport is a nice on-road alternative that could make sense. I filmed and uploaded a video for my “ToyotaJeff Reviews” YouTube channel this week on TRD Sport.
I must say, Lunar Rock looks sharp in this trim level.

2022 Tacoma Electric Lime Metallic
If you still want a Tacoma TRD Pro and did not get your Lunar Rock first choice, you could also switch to a 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro in Electric Lime Metallic. This is the exclusive color for 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro.
