  • STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING GENERAL MOTORS!!!!!

  • Very similar to my 2017 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Off Road. 😎

  • interior is borring.

  • I’m all for reliability, but the interior could use a facelift. Doesn’t even have to be a big makeover, but a touch of a modern interior would be good. Not worth the upgrade in my opinion. Excited to see if Ford brings the Ranger Raptor.

  • 1.5” not worth it! #CmonTacoma

  • Not buying one until we get factory TRF SC kits. Be cool again.

  • I think it would be a better truck if they come with dash cam camera ( front/back) install on the rear view mirror & third brake light on top of the truck

  • Keep the truck videos coming please 🙏 love all your videos

  • Gays truck

  • The redesign isn't coming out for at least 2 years

  • These will cost MSRP + $20,000

  • Imagine trying to get one of these at the dealer in the next few months, I take my '21 TRD OR 4x4 Voodoo Blue in for service every few months and they offer me $5k+ over sticker price for it because they cant seem to keep more than 2-4 trucks on the lot with the current supply chain issues. Their new Tacoma inventory last time I was there they had 2 SR access cab base trucks for $32k and one SR5 DC 2wd for $37k.

  • Super white

    • @Raiti's Rides yeah my little brother got one but in the super white color it looks amazing it’s great truck for off-roading

    • Oh yeah!

  • The color reminds me of what comes out of my sinuses when they get infected……

  • I personally really love that it still has an old school feel to it.

  • IMO, Army Green is the best TRD Pro color. I love how they engineered a UCA for the suspension. And those tires! Finally!!! Definitely getting there with this trim level.

  • can't imagine this car (and the 4runner) is from 2022

  • Ima wait for the redesign maybe they add a 8 or 10 automatic transmission

  • Literally no different from 2021 except cosmetic looks.

  • I feel asleep when you went into the interior.

  • I have a 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. I love the truck, and will likely keep it forever. However, for the additional price, they really needed to add a supercharger. Just put it in there Toyota. For God's sake!

  • Army green..and love the trd springs and uca

  • Redesign is still 3.5 years out. 2005>2015>2025.

  • I would never buy this truck until they remove that ugly looking manual lever break.

  • Big mistake buying this truck unless it’s Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie. Toyota still uses lever break when other automotive gave about 2 decades ago lol. There’s nothing you can expect new from Toyota. They’re still living in 90s centuries. Wake the hell up Toyota..

  • Do a car review without any underwear on.

  • That's who drives these right... TRD.. BROS!!!lmao.

  • You're a half inch higher than last years pro, not 1.5. The total lift is now 1.5. it was an inch previously

  • My favorite car brand ever. (toyota)

  • As much as I love the idea of buying a Taco NOW, I'm not sold...yet. I want to see what they will do now with electric pickups coming to market. Also, I want to see them keep stick shift- EVEN if they go hybrid or even...gasp!...full electric. It's an exciting time to want to buy a truck. Taco is still king.

  • Its sad how Toyota Doesn"t offers its better Trucks in The USA .I will take a Diesel Toyota Hillux over that all day long .

  • Gonna wait for 2023 if the hp worth it, my 09 will do for now

  • Did Toyota give a release date on when dealerships would start to receive them. They look really nice with the color 💚

  • Why won't they put the 4.6 out of the gx460 in the tacoma why do we have to suffer with a underpowered engine I'm thinking the next tacoma's top engine is going to be a 4 cylinder Ecoboost

  • "TRD Bro,,,,,Pro*" 5:08

  • I’d wait the passenger seats have little room

  • Floor mat gives you an extra 5hp 😂

  • This shit is trash… they keep pushing this old ass tech Tacoma.. this truck should have been redesigned 3 years ago.. fuck em

  • Hey hey chill out I love that steering wheel 😂

  • That colour reminds me of the Suzuki Jimny!

  • *a freaking over priced truck.*

  • RYOBI Truck

  • Toyota please is time to renovate we are in 2021 -2022

  • its a good looking truck but i have heard the motor being smaller really lacks the low end torque the 4.0 has. i still dont understand why the 4runner has it and not the tacoma.

  • Honda ridgeline is much better both engine and transmission and it fwd with 4x4, compare to toyota tacoma rwd awd👎🏼

  • Ugh, that color...

  • Looks like the Kia Soul color 🤣🤣

  • Color is gag inducing 🤮

  • Thanks for the video. I believe that the lift is an awesome improvement as well as the embossed TRD PRO on the side of the bed. Aside for those two reasons. I still prefer my 2021 TRD PRO in Lunar Rock.

  • If I was in control of Toyota I would make the next redesign look exactly like the gen 3's. Best looking gen they ever made. Supercharger standard. Front and rear lockers standard on all models too. 2WD would not be available. I have spoken.

  • The cruise stick is dated... Some Toyota's have cruise now on the wheel instead of the stick.

  • I still don’t understand rear drums on a modern-day vehicle at this price.

    • It's Toyota. They're able to get away with shit like this because people swoon over these vehicles because it's a Toyota. They can get away with 10 year old designs and charge absurd prices that put you in Lexus territory.

  • honestly the tacoma TRD PRO has gotten better just by LOOKS is in my opinion since 2020

  • 60k

  • They should do teal or turquoise someday

  • That TRD PRO stamp!

  • I am blinded by the lime.

  • I'm gonna zonk it for being a automatic.. Fawkin sad

  • Still same fucking ugly design for the last 20 years. Is it a full size truck or a midsize truck. Does it still have stupid rear drums? Same peace of shit Camry engine? Toyota USA they sure know how to fuck shit up.

  • I'm digging the color. But why make something if you're not going to make it functional?

  • Geez can’t believe they don’t add a passenger power seat .wtf 😱😂

  • 1794 tundra joeeeeee

  • Why Toyota Tacoma until now no 4 wheels disc brake? Every truck now a day comes with 4 wheels disc brake.... This is suck. The bottom line I would not touch any Tacoma no matter what they look Toyota corporation needs redesign and stop the cheap and excuse from lamp duck engineer rear brake shoes Tacoma and change to 4 wheels disc brake.

  • damn you're super tall. or that Taco is super small lol

  • Terrible color, really missed the mark with this one

  • Not a fans or the bed stamp. They should at least kept it the same as the trundra bed stamp

  • You don’t get additional ground clearance from the extra suspension lift. It makes the approach and departure angle better but not the actual ground clearance

  • looks very good

  • TRD- Toyota Retro/Dated- They need to step up and quit thinking they can coast on their name.Competitors are offering more for less.

  • Ok Tacoma and 4Runner same thing…give us the new TUNDRA ALREADY!!!

  • Should review the trail addition also.

  • Toyota has done NOTHING New for this truck. Vanilla and boring truck. Will it last, yes. Why would they not do a full update and make it better????

  • When you said “I could roll right under there now!”...I panicked since in my city it’s open season on catalytic converters! Crooks love the precious metals that are in that component and sell them to other crooks that make even more money off them by melting them down. Thieves will crawl under SUV’s and vehicles with a bit more clearance even in broad daylight in plaza parking lots with absolutely no fear to steal these things. Owners then start their car and find out pretty quickly that something isn’t the same as it was a half hour ago!!

    • @Brian I’m thinking something more “James Bond-ish”?

    • Get a lowering kit.

  • wtf is "zonk" ?

  • 2022 we going to see more of Tacoma low rider on the road

  • That green is disgusting why why why 🙄

  • So, is there a point to having fake intakes? I'm not sure I get it.

  • Love that truck!

  • Great reveiw!

  • When you said electric I was like omg an electric Tacoma- sweet! Haha nooo oh well. I like the color, especially the black hood scoop and surround. My very favorite thing about it is how they stamped the TRD pro into the bed side... LOVE it!! I think it really gives it a lot of interest and character. I adore how you can still get a manual transmission!! I wish more people would buy them to keep it alive!! I will only buy a manual transmission vehicle. It just makes driving fun and engaging, and honestly I 100% believe it makes me a better driver because your driving nor riding.

  • With chip shortages good luck 🍀 finding one.

  • This isn't the hybrid version that Toyota already announced so who or why would anybody want to buy this Tacoma Pro when the hybrid version is going to be way better in every way possible !!!

  • The only thing to dislike on the TRD Pros will be the price as they edge into the $70K territory in most major markets. Get a Sport and mod the heck out of it to your hearts content...then go to the wrap shop and order the vinyl and save $30K.

  • this color clean !!

  • $15k more than the 2022 Nissan Frontier that looks a lot better

  • Love the color combination, I think it works well with the top tier model.

  • love my 2021 tacoma !!!!! lets gooooo

  • I love my Honda Ridgeline RTLE 21..

  • New Tacoma is soon this is old one . New tundra for 22 Tacoma is next

    • @Raiti's Rides oh it sure will mike sweers will Deliver twin turbo 3.5 v6

    • It will be interesting!

  • "Toyota listened to their customers"- who suggested that horrible color lol. Pass!

  • Anyone else notice the 2022 Tacoma already had almost 10k miles on it? Who the heck is driving it?

  • I’ll wait for new model.

  • Tried and true? Isn't the big complaint that the Tacoma doesn't have enough power? Really wish they'd update the interior. That steering wheel looks garbage. The screen and knobs look super cheap. The whole interior is dated.

  • Looks good to me. I’d never buy it because I don’t need it but can’t deny it looks cool.

  • Raiti you’re literally so clutch i saw some other influencers at the same event and they don’t do NEARLY as well as you do on your car analysis shout out to you my MAN 💪🏽

  • not worth it.. Let's just wait for the redesign.

  • Honestly the simplicity of the interior of this truck makes it feel like one of the only true small trucks still available to buy! Who cares about having a digital gauge cluster? Keep it simple, keep it inexpensive.

    • Lol for the size of the truck and quality of interior the price isn’t great.

  • You don't want all these dirt going inside your hood scoop if It function. It an off road truck not a show car

  • You don’t get increase ground clearance. It’s still at 9.4 inches but with slightly improved approach, departure, break-over angle.

  • Why are the Tacoma’s still being manufactured with rear drum brakes instead of all around disc brakes that come standard on the Tundras ? The Tacoma’s have always been more popular than the Tundras and they are still using old braking technology on them still .

    • I feel your pain! We will see what the redesign brings.
