compact truck from Toyota looks tough with a raised hood and big front grille.
Models include three cabin designs with the regular two-door and extended XtraCab
plus four-door Double Cab.
begin with the base twin-cam 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine worth 142 hp. The
4WD Tacomas and PreRunners use a twin-cam 2.7-liter four that rises to 150 hp.
Optional power for 4WD Tacomas and 2WD PreRunners is supplied by a 3.4-liter dual-cam
V6 good for 190 hp.
S-Runner effects the stance of a customized drop job, while the Double Cab does
the opposite with its 11-inch clearance designed for off-pavement treks. PreRunner
RWD has the look of a customized 4WD truck with a tall stance and flared fenders.
Also, it carries the suspension of the 4WD Tacoma, with independent double-wishbone
design in front and a live axle in back working in conjunction with leaf springs
and hydraulic shocks.
optional TRD Off-Road package, available on 4WD Tacoma trucks, is on tap for PreRunner
too. The package adds Bilstein shocks for a Regular Cab or Tokico shocks for the
Double Cab, a locking rear differential with the V6 engine, progressive-rate front
coil springs and modified rear leaf spring suspension, a thicker stabilizer bar
up front and 16-inch alloy wheels capped by P265/70R16 tires and rugged black
overfenders. Tacoma's S-Runner variation consists of a 4x2 Xtracab with five-speed
manual stick and V6 power.
suspension tuned for sporty performance also applies, as do Tokico gas shocks.
Further, the ride height drops by one inch from the standard 4WD Tacoma.
