Toyota Expands Production of i-Force Turbo Engine

If you’ve shopped or driven a new Toyota Tundra recently, you’ve probably come across the i-Force Max powertrain. This powertrain is the latest Toyota thing.

It combines the power of a twin-turbo gas engine and an electric motor to give the Tundra impressive performance. Now, Toyota is expanding its i-Force engine lineup to include one for the all-new Tacoma, and it’s being produced right in the U.S.

The All-New i-FORCE 2.4-liter

The 2024 Toyota Tacoma is all new and improved. The new generation Tacoma even offers an all-new engine option. The i-FORCE 2.4-liter turbo four-cylinder hybrid uses a turbo four-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor. They combine to generate 326 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Not only does this engine give the new Tacoma more horsepower than it’s seen before, it also gives it more towing power. It can now pull up to 6,500 pounds.


The new i-FORCE 2.4-liter uses the same setup as the i-FORCE Max that the Toyota Tundra has offered for a few years now. The difference is the Max version uses a 3.5-liter V-6 gas engine and a 48-horsepower electric motor that sits between the engine and the transmission. These combine to give the Tundra 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. This version of the Tundra is available with all-wheel drive, and it can shoot from zero to 60 in just 5.7 seconds. Let’s not forget that it is a hybrid, so it will efficiently get you from point A to point B, in addition to getting you there with impressive power.
