The Toyota Tacoma offers two new packages for 2011. The T/X and T/X Pro packages, available in conjunction with the Off-Road Package, add Toyota Racing Development accessories in a unique combination at a special value price.
The T/X Package gives the Tacoma a semi-menacing look and additional sportiness with TRD 16-inch black alloy bead-lock wheels and 265/70R16 BF Goodrich Rugged Trail tires. Black tube side steps, a stainless steel exhaust tip and unique exterior graphics provide the T/X the aesthetics of a custom truck.
The T/X Pro is the performance oriented package with a TRD cat-back performance exhaust system that gives the V6 a throatier sound and a bit more power.
Toyota has added five four-cylinder variants to the Tacoma line for 2011, expanding choices for customers seeking higher value and fuel economy.
The 2011 Tacoma line offers two engines: a 2.7-liter four-cylinder that produces 159 horsepower with 180 lb-ft. of torque and a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 that outputs 236 horsepower with 266 lb-ft. of torque.
The Tacoma X-Runner performance truck, unique in the entire truck category, returns for 2011 and features the 4.0-liter V6 engine with a specially tuned chassis. Available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission, the X-Runner can accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in less than seven seconds.
To take performance even higher, TRD offers a 4.0-liter V6 supercharger kit capable of generating 304 horsepower and 334 lbs.-ft. of torque.
Base model estimated mpg: 21/25
Estimated starting price: $16,365
