I just checked the Tacoma, and you are right, they discontinued last year. IMO, it was the most distinct color in the Taco palette, especially on the X-Runner. The Nautical Blue Metallic looks boring compared to it. Speaking of which, you never see any of the newer facelifted X-Runners on the street, they're pretty rare nowadays.

I think I saw two Xrunners since it came out. You think people dont buy them because its impractical? I forgot about Voodoo blue....its now gone too.

If you don't see many of them, its likely that the demand for them isn't there, or at least a lot less than say a Tacoma D Cab Pre Runner, which is a popular grade for the Taco much like a Camry LE. Most Taco owners want the raised height, rather than the decreased utility that the X-Runner presents. The 236 hp in the vehicle doesn't really cut it anymore.

The 2WD Tacomas, the true ones, not the Prerunner, aren't nearly as common as they used to be. The 2WD ones just look awkward and have weird proportions, while the 4WD ones look handsome, due to the bigger size of the current Taco compared to the 1st generation and the Hilux before that.

1991 Toyota Camry 24,000 mi
1994 Toyota Pickup 77,000 mi
1998 Toyota Avalon 150,000 mi
2005 Chevrolet Silverado 57,000 mi
2006 BMW 330i Sedan 123,000 mi
2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid 95,000 mi

TRD still offers the SC for the Tacoma engine (good for the FJ & 4Runner too). Gives you at least 300 hp, but you got to have it installed by the dealer for the better warranty.

Spot on. Because of the fact that trucks are fashionable for regular everyday driving, much of Tacoma sales are the Prerunner because of the way it looks and the fact that you can carry 5 passengers. The Regular Cabs are still utilitarian and selling mostly to folks who engage in some work usage (construction, maintenance, etc.).

most of the trucks I see today are double cabs (4 doors), I don't know why they didn't start selling them earlier like in the 90's
