Toyota for 2005 has raised the level of power and performance of the Tundra, the first import-brand full-size pickup truck line. Tundra for 2005 offers a powerful new 4.0-liter V6 engine, and significantly more horsepower in its 4.7-liter V8 engine. Tundra V8 models gain a new standard five-speed automatic transmission, and Double Cab models offer newly available curtain and seat side airbags.


The new 4.0-liter dual overhead cam (DOHC) V6 produces 245 horsepower and 282 lb-ft. of torque, compared to 190 horsepower and 220 lb-ft. of torque for the previous 3.4-litrer V6 - nearly 30-percent increases.

For 2005, the i-Force DOHC V8 gains variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) to boost horsepower from 240 to 282. Torque has increased by 10 lb-ft. to 325 lb-ft. at 3,400 rpm.

The 05 Tacoma should be out around March... it will share the same V6 engine as the Tundra, while the X-Runner version will have LSD and a 6spd Manual exclusive to the X-Runner, it will also feature 13" inch rotors and 18"inch Alloy rims with 1 inch drop all around.

With the exception of the X-Runner the Tacoma will be just a scaled down version of the Tundra V6 IMHO. Mini-Tundra if you will

The X-Runner also may come with an optional Supercharger. Which will put the lowered better handling truck over 300hp.
