Choosing the Perfect Color for Your Tacoma

When it comes to choosing between these colors, there are a few things to consider.

Color is such an important aspect of vehicle ownership (at least for most people). The exterior color is one of the most defining characteristics of the truck, so you’ll want to choose one that aligns with your needs and style.

Personal Preference

Typically, the first factor you’ll want to consider is personal preference. Think about which color goes most with your style. Do you want to fly under the radar with the classic Celestial Silver Metallic? Or perhaps you want to draw the attention of others with the vibrant Solar Octane color.

Picture yourself driving down the road with these colors. Which one best suits your style?

Functionality

What you’re using the truck for may influence which color you should choose.

For example, if you’re using this as a practical work truck, you may want to keep it simple with Wind Chill Pearl, Black, or Celestial Silver Metallic.

On the other hand, perhaps you own a business and want to use your truck as a form of advertisement. It may be better to choose Solar Octane, Supersonic Red, or Bronze Oxide to get the attention of potential customers on the road.

Environment

Your environment can also play an important role in which color is a great option for your Tacoma.

Dark colors, such as Black, will absorb more light and cause your truck to get hotter in intense sunshine. On the other hand, Ice Cap, Wind Chill Pearl, or Celestial Silver Metallic will help reflect light and keep your truck cooler in the summer (phys.org).

You should also consider how dirty your environment will be. If you’ll be on dirt roads, in mud, or live in a rainy environment, colors like Underground, Bronze Oxide, Black, and Celestial Silver Metallic will help hide the dirt. Colors like Ice Cap and Wind Chill Pearl will reveal a lot of dirt and will be difficult to keep clean.

Resale Value

The color you choose for your Tacoma could affect your future resale value. If maximizing resale value is important to you, then you should choose the color carefully.

According to iSeeCars, certain colors can lead to lower resale value as a result of depreciation.

Based on their data, you can expect colors like Supersonic Red, Black, Ice Cap, Wind Chill Pearl, and Celestial Silver Metallic to depreciate the value of the vehicle more than average. On the other hand, colors like Blue Crush Metallic, Underground, Bronze Oxide, and Solar Octane will help your Tacoma retain its resale value.

Of course, this is based on averages, so the actual results could be different.

Safety

Most people don’t consider safety when choosing a vehicle color, but the color of your Tacoma can influence your crash risk.

A study by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) found that certain colors increased or decreased the risk of a crash.

Based on this data, you should know that some of the Tacoma’s colors could lead to an increased risk of a crash, such as Supersonic Red, Celestial Silver Metallic, Blue Crush Metallic, and Underground.

Your safest option for your Tacoma’s color is either Ice Cap or Wind Chill Pearl, since white was shown to reduce the risk of a crash.

  1. UNDERGROUND is my first choice with BRONZE OXIDE as my second choice. I own two Tacomas and two 4 Runners all in Black…but that is changing with my 2024 Tacoma.

    1. Michael Bauman says:

      I have a 2023 Barcelona red its my favorite Tacima color. wish my 2024 could be the same.

  2. What happened to the Military green? Will I be able to order it on the 2024?

    1. Jonathan Buckley says:

      It is not available on the 2024 Tacoma as far as we know. There is only 1 unreleased color, which probably will not be Military Green.

  3. Alex Vargo says:

    The new trail hunter bronze is a hot out of the park! Beyond rugged and classy all roiled into one amazing option for the new Tacoma and hopefully for my selfish-ness on the new 6th Gen 4Runner 😀.

    I own a lfted 2003 V8 Limited 4runner with 351,xxx miles and going strong as ever, going from Denver to Black hawk, one of North Americas toughest hill climbs in the US, like a bat out of hell for years and years! Take care of it and it takes care of you !

  4. Tacomacaster says:

    I wish they’d bring quicksand tan back. I know so many people that want it & a few that actually went with a different truck because they couldn’t get Tacoma in tan.

  5. Steve Krugger says:

    Looking forward to ordering a 2024 Tacoma. Have Owned several. Many same out the box colors. My current Tacoma the burnt orange. Love it . I do like the green electric lime but does not show it in customer choice. Looking forward to seeing what the mistery color will be. Excited for Toyota to at least start taking orders. Those lot shoppers will wait til they hit lot’s. Needs be advantage to ordering.

  6. George Salvesen says:

    Will there be a motor option with zero percent hybrid or electric engine and 100% gasoline and if so how will the power be compared to the V6 engine from last 20+ years?
    Any information would be greatly appreciated..
    Thanks

    1. Jonathan Buckley says:

      Hi George,

      No there will not be. All the new engines will be hybrid. The new engines should be just as powerful, but more fuel-efficient.

  7. Bill Pomeroy says:

    Love my current voodoo blue. Was hoping for it in the 24 model
    Will have to hold on to mine a bit longer until they offer it again

  8. I wish they would offer the Lunar Rock color for2024. If not, I’ll be looking at Underground.

  9. Lash Formby says:

    Supersonic Red
    Wind Chill Pearl
    Tacoma Limited. Short Bed
    Interior colors will there be options?

  10. Penny Schlemmer says:

    I like the bronze oxide best. I how it will come in the modle I want though since I can’t get 2023’s lunar rock that I like best.

  11. Lash Formby says:

    My favorite colors would be wind chill pearl then supersonic red and ice cap white

  12. Sad to see miliary green and quicksand tan off the choices here. I would choose bronze oxide but not sure if it comes in something other than the one model…underground would be a second choice.

  13. Cindy D Kimerling says:

    I thought I saw a picture of a 2024 Tacoma Sport in metallic green – my favorite color. Is it available? Also saw one in a lime green.

    1. Jonathan Buckley says:

      Nope, not available on 2024. Only what’s listed in this article is available.
