    New 3.5l V6 Land Cruiser has over 400 horsepower and close to 500 pounds of torque. Think the next generation of Tacoma might have a version of this engine? Anything is possible but if I had to guess it would have closer to 350 horses and maybe 400 pounds of torque at the most. If it even came close to those figures I would be kissing my 3rd gen bye bye in a heart beat. And imagine what could be done with aftermarket goodies...

    Probably not since that seems to be the motor for the next tundra, I’d imagine the Tacoma will get a turbo inline-4.

    The next gen tacoma is 100% getting an turbo 4 cylinder and the full size trucks and SUVs are getting the twin turbo v6 (possibly with hybrid power)

    You'll probably find out next summer when the 2023 4Runner is released. Assume it will share an engine with the Tacoma. If they go i4-turbo I think I'll hang on to my V6 for a long time.

    I've been wondering if Toyota will ever turbo (or supercharge) the 2TR motor. Not sure how far they could push it to improve upon the performance of the current 3G Taco, tho.

    The interior looks good. There does not seem to be much room for the driver and front passenger.

    The hood looks like Toyota borrowed it from the Ford Ranger with those twin bulges.

    I would like a v6 twin turbo tundra with 400hp 400 torque and 20-24 mpg.
    Current tundra drinks more gas per month in cost than the owners truck payment. (So Cali commuter)
    Electric trucks are in the conversation as gas at the pump just cost me $76 to fill up my Tacoma.

    Toyota is relying heavily in it's proven synergy drive mated to a 2.5 L Atkinson cycle engine for it's mid size autos and suvs. These power plants produce excellent fuel economy, 219-302 hp and smooth power characteristics. I would expect putting a turbo 4 in a Tacoma would be an about face!

    The interior looks plenty spacious compared to the third gen taco. And the land cruiser has had the two bulges in the hood for the last couple generations

    Probably, the console looks like it takes up too much of the usable space. There isn't anywhere to put a purse. I think it's the Tahoe that has a place to store a purse. I don't care about that, but women do. They buy Lexus SUVs.

    Will this be what the Tundra interior layout looks like? I like the two level dash design.

    The hood looks more pronounced on the 300. I like it, but I like the hood on the Ranger.
