2024 Toyota Tacoma Makes Its Movie Debut

2024 Toyota Tacoma
 

The Toyota Tacoma has long been the midsize pickup of choice for drivers throughout the Mission Hills and Cerritos area, and it’s easy to see why. Packed with raw power, best-in-class features, and generous towing capabilities, this is a truck that can rise to any challenge on the road or the job site. At Toyota of Downtown LA, we’re just steps away from Hollywood, so we were thrilled when we learned Warner Bros. had decided to feature the Tacoma in the newest DC superhero film, Blue Beetle. Get all the details below!

 

See Multiple Tacoma Generations on the Big Screen

The rich history, legendary ruggedness, and distinctive styling of the Tacoma made it a natural choice for the filmmakers behind Blue Beetle. In the movie, you’ll have the opportunity to see multiple generations of the iconic Tacoma, including a bespoke 2024 model. This specially-designed model was created by Toyota’s CALTY Design Studio— and plays a significant role in the film’s plot. As you might have guessed, its exterior is swirling with bright blue hues, with a little purple thrown in for good measure, and the body is sculpted to next-level perfection for a bold and brawny profile.

About Blue Beetle

After discovering an ancient alien technology, Jaime Reyes changes from a recent college graduate into a superhero named The Blue Beetle. Jaime and his entire family are thrust into the adventure of their lives, accompanied every step of the way by their beloved third-generation Toyota Tacoma, nicknamed Taco. You’ll witness the escapades of the Reyes family and Taco as they fight to save the world. And be sure to keep your eyes on the screen so you don’t miss the cameo appearance of that all-new, fourth-generation Tacoma!

The good news is that you don’t need to be a superhero to drive, own, and love the popular Tacoma! While the 2024 model hasn’t yet arrived at dealerships, we have plenty of 2023 Tacoma trims in stock. Why not experience one for yourself with a test drive?
