Toyota Tacoma X-Runner
A performance truck factory-developed as a separate and dedicated model, the X-Runner showcases the Tacoma line's 236-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 engine in a specially lowered and tuned chassis. The X-Runner name is derived from its “X-Brace” frame reinforcement that provides enhanced torsional rigidity.
Available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission and also equipped with a limited-slip rear differential, the X-Runner can accelerate from zero-to-60 MPH in less than seven seconds. Just as impressive, X-Runner can achieve lateral acceleration in excess of 0.9-g – comparable with many sports cars.
The X-Runner's Access Cab design incorporates full body kit, a hood scoop and integrated fog lamps. The color-keyed monochromatic exterior comes in three colors – Radiant Red, Black Sand and Speedway Blue.
The X-Runner suspension is lowered one inch versus the standard Tacoma and rolls on 18-inch alloy wheels with 255/45R18 Bridgestone Potenza performance tires. Exclusive X-Runner suspension incorporates firmer and shorter springs, specially tuned Bilstein gas shock absorbers positioned outboard of the frame rails for increased stability, a rear stabilizer bar with firmer bushings, and specially tuned steering response.
