Toyota Tacoma X-Runner

This thing is awesome...

4.0 litre V6 6 speed
240 horse power
275 torque

toyota claims it has great power, the X-Runner makes use of the 4.0-liter V6 already found in the 4Runner sport-utility. Here, it's rated for 240 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission. The 60-mph mark is said to come around in just 7 seconds. For those who require more, Toyota will offer a fully warranted TRD supercharger that raises horsepower to an even 300, while shaving "more than an additional second" off the 0-60 time. Handling should also be impressive, as Toyota claims the X-Runner can pull off 0.9g of lateral acceleration on the skid pad. Company executives even had the audacity to say that the truck's handling characteristics were benchmarked against Nissan's 350Z sports car
performance and handling

it was merely a demonstration by toyota australia that they had the R and D facilities to come up with their own products and didnt have to rely 100% on Japan. the sportivo concept is the same philosophy

And 100% proof that Ford and Dodge are still more powerful and always will be. The 'yota needs a Supercharged V-8!

The X-Runner concept from Toyota Oz was actually not that bad looking or sounding (As in what they said it could do) car. People like Nitroturd are from the mindset that foreign cars will never be truly accepted into the domain of the "Real American Truck" which most US manufacturers earn most of their profits from, now things like the Nissan Titan are cutting into this market, as it the Tacoma, this tacoma is cutting into the F-150 SVT Lightning market, and granted, it may have a way to go yet, but think of how much Japanese cars have progressed over 20 years or so, not only in tech but in Mindset of the public.

In America Hyundai have a slightly better reputation than in Australia, simply because americans love a good bargain, and Hyundais are just that, you do get a lot of car for your money. The Move to the Truck market would actually be smart for them, even if they have missed the boat on it slightly....

i think i read somewhere that the reason Hyundai get away with $13,990 drive away price tags, is when some big player on the market like toyota or nissan put 3 years development on a car, Hyundai scribble out "years" and put in "months", thats a bit exaggerated but still, ive heard of them only spending 8 months on certain cars
