Its called the x-runner, so most likely the s-runner replacement. Not a big fan of street trucks so I'll wait for the trd version.

Toyota Unveils All-New 2005 Next-Generation Tacoma Pickup Truck At 2004 Chicago Auto Show

To view press conference - 56k 300k


February 4, 2004 - Chicago, IL - Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., unveiled the all-new 2005 Tacoma X-Runner pickup truck at a press conference today at the 2004 Chicago Auto Show. The high-performance X-Runner sport truck will be one of several models offered when the all-new next-generation Tacoma arrives in showrooms this summer.

"The arrival of the all-new Tacoma series will mark the first step in expanding our presence in the North American light truck arena," said Don Esmond, Toyota Division senior vice president and general manager. "Larger in every metric of comparison, the new Tacoma will offer an extensive variety of body-and-bed configurations with substantially more passenger room, cargo volume and towing capacity than ever before."

The next-generation Tacoma will move well beyond its current compact-truck dimensions. Compared to the previous-generation Tacoma S-Runner, the Tacoma X-Runner will ride on a wheelbase that has been extended by a full five inches and a track that has been widened by four inches. The increased size translates to an extra four-and-one-half inches of interior shoulder and hip room.

With a much bigger canvas on which to work, X-Runner design-engineers began creating a true factory-developed performance truck as a separate-and-dedicated model, requiring no post-production modifications. X-Runner will ride on an exclusive "X-braced" reinforced frame that provides enhanced torsional rigidity. The X-Runner chassis will sit one-full-inch lower than the standard Tacoma frame, resting on 18-inch 45-series V-rated performance radials wrapped around alloy wheels. Firmer and shorter springs are mounted at all four corners, while specially tuned Bilstein gas shocks are positioned out board of the frame rails for increased stability. Large-diameter stabilizer bars with firmer bushings are at both front and rear. A limited-slip differential will be standard.

Power will be provided by a four-liter, 240 horsepower V6 engine with 275 pounds of torque and a six-speed close-ratio manual transmission. For buyers looking for an added boost over this already impressive powertrain, a TRD-developed, fully factory warranted supercharger system will be offered, capable of providing output in the neighborhood of 300 horsepower. The Tacoma X-Runner will be capable of zero-to-60 acceleration in seven seconds, with times reduced by more-than an additional second with the optional supercharger system.

Handling is even more impressive. During extensive testing, the X-Runner's road-holding ability was measured by an electronic accelerometer in excess of 0.9 g's of lateral acceleration. That's not only significantly better than any truck on the market, it repeatedly performed better than many sports cars, including the new Nissan 350-Z.

From a design point of view, the X-Runner is one of those rare vehicles that actually ended up looking like the original conceptual illustrations penned by the Hino Styling Studio in Tokyo. Just about every detail, from how the ground-effects integrate into the body panels, to how the wheels-and tires fill the wells, has been realized. The X-Runner's four-door Access-cab design incorporates full-vehicle-surround ground effects, a hood scoop and integrated fog lamps. It will be offered in a limited palette of colors on its fully color-keyed monochromatic exterior.

The X-Runner will also include a wide array of safety features such as standard Anti-Lock Brakes, and optional side-curtain airbags and electronic vehicle stability control.

"The Tacoma X-Runner is not a concept vehicle, but a show truck and a go truck that will be the real deal in both style and performance when it rolls into showrooms in August," said Esmond. "And of course, consistent with how Toyota approaches the development of every next-generation vehicle, Tacoma will not only be a better truck, it will be a better value."

Impressive, just watched the introduction and they said they benchmarked the 350z for the handling to beat.

I agree.
I think it looks bad on the outside.
Interiors are great though!
I know it's perspective and lens trickery but the rear wheels look tiny in that second to last pic !

Looks damn good and really sticks to the Tacomas theme. It looks damn near as big as the Tundra though. These trucks really hold their value well and are as reliable as hell. I've got an inspector at my job that has over 300K on his Tacoma and it still runs like new!

I'll have to wait to see one with body color moldings. Looks sorta cheap with the silver on the grill which is most likely plastic. Wish they included pics of the black one right next to it.

Like the gray one also. While the blue one looks good, IMO a truck should be off the ground.

I dunno, I like what they've done with the truck aspects, but the styling is killing it for me so far.

Road Test: 2005 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner
By: Mike Magda, Editor Posted: 08-18-05 10:37 PT
© 2005 PickupTruck.com
http://www.pickuptruck.com/html/2005...ner/page1.html


Compact pickups with sports-car abilities have always intrigued me since I drove the Archer Brothers’ Jeep Comanche at Willow Springs in the early ‘90s. The truck was a top threat in the SCCA Racetruck Challenge road-racing series that had started about three years earlier. “They handle better than a Vette,” said Bobby Archer, holding the door open for me as I squeezed into the OMP seat and adjusted my helmet. After a few laps I couldn’t really disagree with the handling in the turns but the wimpy 4-cylinder engine certainly would not have kept pace with the Vette over the entire 2.5-mile course.

It was an eye-opening introduction to the road-hugging potential of compact pickups when fitted with proper equipment and racing tires. I later ran stock and modified compact pickups in a few SCCA Pro Solo and Solo II events on the West Coast as part of some other story projects. It was fun but not exhilarating as the horsepower just wasn’t there except for the GMC Syclone, which if not for the frustrating turbo lag coming out of the turns and the gutless automatic transmission would have been a real threat to a few popular sports cars of the day.



I thought compact trucks had so much potential then that the S-10 might become as popular as a Camaro for hot rodding. It was inexpensive, rugged and a small-block V8 swap took so little effort. But fullsize trucks became all the rage that decade and used S-10s are hauling lawn-care equipment today.

With those experiences in mind, I eagerly took delivery of a 2005 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner for a week’s test drive. Replacing the S-Runner model, the X-Runner features a sport-tuned chassis, a spirited 4.0-liter V6 engine and a new 6-speed manual transmission. I briefly reviewed the X-Runner as part of the Tacoma First Drive last year but only drove it on one outing in a very restrictive setting. Now I’ve had the opportunity to drive it on twisty canyon roads and open highways.

The X-Runner comes only in a 2-wheel-drive Access Cab configuration. Base MSRP is just over $23,000 and there are only a handful of dealer-installed options. Just three colors are offered: black, red and blue. Toyota says production will be limited to 3500 units.



Toyota says it used the Nissan 350Z as a benchmark for the X-Runner’s handling performance. “I wanted it to out-perform not only all competitive sport trucks but also many sports cars,” said Yuichiro Obu, chief engineer on the Tacoma project at the vehicle’s introduction to the press last year. “During extensive testing, the X-Runner’s road-holding ability was measured in excess of 0.9g, which is better than the Z.”

I would never bet against the Z in a road race, especially considering it weighs 400 pounds less than the X-Runner and sports 55 more ponies under the hood. But the X-Runner does handle exceptionally well. I found it to be very flat through the canyon turns and reasonably responsive. Ride quality will be annoying to those who don’t appreciate agile handling but few will argue with the sports-car steering feel.

There are two keys to the much improved handling abilities of the X-Runner: chassis design and sticky tires. The frame features diagonal braces in the front and an X-brace to reinforce the rear. These improvements increase the torsional rigidity of the frame and improve transitional response and overall stability. X-Runner specific springs are used, including front coils that are 50 percent stiffer than stock.

The suspension is lowered one-inch compared to a standard 2WD Tacoma but the actual ride height is lowered only a half-inch. That’s due to the bigger 255/45R18 Bridgestone Potenza tires installed on 18x8 alloy wheels at all four corners. The front 30mm anti-roll bar is left alone but the rear receives a 25mm bar.

The X-Runner suspension is also treated to Bilstein 36mm monotube high-pressure gas shocks and unique bushings that increase roll resistance. Standard brakes are 10.8-inch discs up front and 10-inch drums in the rear.

The front brakes seem a little weak when compared to the 12.5-inch discs found on Tacoma 4x4 models. But TRD has a “big-brake” kit that offers 13-inch discs with 4-piston calipers made just for the X-Runner. My test vehicle didn’t have these massive binders but I did drive a big-brake X-Runner briefly at the press introduction and was very impressed with the stopping ability and looks.



The X-Runner has also grown considerably with new generation of Tacos, especially when compared to the old S-Runner. The X-Runner’s wheelbase is 127.2 inches, up from 121.9 inches while the track width grew from 57.1 inches to 62.2 inches. With that large footprint, handling is sure to improve. But the weight also went up from a svelte 3190 pounds in the old S-Runner to a sweltering 3690 in the new X-Runner. Horsepower was needed.

Motivating the X-Runner is the 1GR-FE DOHC V6 engine rated at 245 horsepower with peak torque of 282 lb-ft. The engine block is aluminum but the steel cylinder liners are cast-in-place. This engine made its first appearance in the 2004 4Runner and is also the base engine in the Tundra. Notable features include variable valve timing and electronic throttle control. Toyota also tuned the exhaust for a more aggressive note.

The RA60 6-speed manual is an all-new design. In other words, Toyota didn’t just tack 5th and 6th gear on the back of an existing 4-speed. First gear is a neck-snapping 4.17:1 and the 0.85:1 overdrive helps with mileage. The tranny is also built for the Tundra. Too bad it’s not built for the Celica GTS. Okay, I know the Celica is front-wheel-drive, but my point is that the X-Runner’s transmission has room for improvement in shifting speed and smoothness if it’s going to feel like a sports car. Heel-toe operation was a little awkward but it’s not a good idea to have truck pedals in close proximity. Power is eventually sent to a limited-slip rear differential that holds 3.15:1 gears.

From a styling standpoint, Toyota certainly made sure the X-Runner stood out from the Tacoma line and any other sport truck in or out of this world. Body bolt-ons include a front spoiler, hood scoop, fender flares, rocker-panel extensions and a rear spoiler. To be honest, the blacked-out grilles don’t do much for me. They look like some kind of space-invader costume. While a pure monochromatic look may give the impression Toyota designers forgot about masking tape in the paint booth, it does offer a cleaner appearance. And someone has to do something about that wimpy hood scoop.



The interior meets most expectations, especially seat comfort and noise isolation. The tilt/telescoping steering wheel is great for securing the best seating position. I find the dash layout uninspired but effective. My biggest complaint is the lack of availability of the JBL sound system that can be found in the Tacoma Double Cab. The X-Runner is obviously intended for the younger generation but the 270-watt stereo with the 8-inch subwoofer isn’t offered. I guess Toyota thinks this buyer is more likely to install a booming aftermarket sound system anyway, so why engineer the Access Cab for the extra speaker.

The pickup bed features the same composite inner liner found on other Tacomas. The X-Runner also has the 115-volt power outlet in the cargo area that is optional on other models. Not that the X-Runner is built for hauling. The GVWR of 4600 pounds is down from the standard 4850 on a regular 2WD Access Cab and 5250 on the 2WD PreRunner Access Cab. Max payload is listed at 910 pounds versus 1535 on the PreRunner. Towing capacity is 3500 pounds, compared to 6500 pounds available with the PreRunner.

Although it’s been about 15 years since I drove a pickup in an SCCA-sanctioned amateur solo event, I would love to return to action in an X-Runner. I’m not sure what class it would race, but I did notice a provision in the rules that allow the event coordinators to ban vehicles with a wheelbase longer than 116 inches at their discretion. The X-Runner certainly has the potential to upset unsuspecting sports cars. Guess they’re worried about the embarrassment.

10.8" front brakes on a 3700lbs. vehicle meant for "performance"? Is someone at Toyota on drugs?

The country's best-selling compact pickup, Toyota Tacoma, gets some tweaks outside, a few additional goodies inside, and zip under the hood.

Maybe that's to be expected. The market for compact pickups is limited, and Tacoma not only dominates but will get a bigger footprint as Ford axes the Ranger.

So, no need, really, to dump a lot of money into new drivetrains, radical restyling, premiuim interiors.

Or, maybe it's a case of, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

The 2012 Tacoma, on sale next Monday or thereabouts and not priced until about the moment it goes on sale, has no changes to the powertrain. Same base 2.7-liter, 159-horsepower four-cylinder. Same optional 236-hp 4-liter V-6, Toyota says.

Outside, the hood, grille, fog lamps, headlights and bumper are different. And there's more:

If you get the TRD Sport package, the side mirrors will have turn signals built into them. And you can choose 18-inch-diameter aluminum wheels with chrome.

Inside, a new instrument panel and revised guages, new center stack with improved climate control operation. Some models get a new steering wheel.

Upgraded audio systems are standard on some, optional on others. Backup camera display is bumped up to 3.3 inches across, from 2.4 in., and Toyota says the new one also has a crisper display.
