Toyota Tacoma X-Runner RTR hits the strip ahead of SEMA
The RTR follows an age-old hot rodding recipe; shove the biggest engine you've got into the lightest chassis on hand. Under the hood, a supercharged 5.7-liter V8 borrowed from the larger Tundra should help the Tacoma RTR dominate the drag strip. The engine is coupled to a stock six-speed automatic transmission, also from the Tundra, and a Tundra rear axle dumps all of the power to the pavement.
Toyota says that the drivetrain is good for 504 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, and that those numbers are good enough to get the truck to scoot down the quarter mile in around 11 seconds. If you can't tell, we're grinning from ear to ear. Head over to Pickuptrucks.com for a closer look.
