"We're thrilled to debut the all-new 2024 Tacoma," said Mike Tripp, group vice president, Toyota Marketing, Toyota Motor North America. "Our 'More Power for More Play' campaign embodies the true essence of this redesigned icon featuring exciting new technology and capabilities with design rooted in Tacoma's rich truck history."

The fully integrated Tacoma campaign was developed using Toyota's long-standing Total Toyota (T2) marketing model. The T2 model integrates efforts to create a cohesive marketing approach inclusive of multicultural marketing and the mainstream market. The T2 agency team includes Saatchi & Saatchi, Burrell Communications, Conill, and Intertrend Communications, with ZenithMedia placing TV and outdoor media buys.

The campaign showcases a unified style across all creative throughout the T2 agency broadcast spots, which are highlighted below:

Intertrend Communications developed two spots, "Red Light" and "Hide & Seek," that highlight the all-new Tacoma. In "Red Light," targeting the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese markets, the two heroes use their Tacomas to race to the top of a mountain in the most epic game of Red Light, Green Light. In "Hide & Seek," targeted for the Asian Indian market, one player uses his Tacoma Trailhunter to stealthily hide from his friend, who's in hot pursuit in his TRD Pro. The spots were directed by Kit Lynch-Robinson.

In "Voices," created by Burrell Communications and directed by Wes Walker, a driver tunes out the well-meaning concerns of loved ones and instead follows his intuition and ventures out to enjoy an epic off-roading adventure in his all-new 2024 Tacoma.

In the spots created by Saatchi & Saatchi and directed by Tarsem Singh, "Celebration" features a group of outdoor enthusiasts traversing the adventurous terrain, increasing in size along the way. They stop to recruit another member to join their celebratory rally, asking him to "come out to play." He enthusiastically responds "yes," hopping into his 2024 Tacoma and riding on with the group. An additional spot will be released at a later date.

"Undisclosed" created by Conill and directed by Goh Iromoto showcases friends taking on an adventure while embracing those little off-road moments that only a Tacoma can accomplish. The concept is a tribute to the freewheeling adventures Hispanics have when they're on the road – and off-roading – with their Tacoma, often best cherished just between friends.
