I got to drive one of them!!!! My dad is a parts manager at a Toyota dealerhsip and a guy that works at the district had one and brought it and since I know everyone in Toyota around here I got to drive it. The thing is bad ass!!. It handles better then a 350Z(on paper and in real life). IT really gets up and moves. The 278 ft lbs of torque it has really gets it off the line. I only got it into 4th gear so I don't know how it feels in 6th gear but I want one so bad now. I am starting to save my 26K now although they are only making like 2500 of them for the first year.
haha....id say wait couple years not that its that possible to save up 26k in a year. but anyways its never good to buy a car firs year of porduction. wait 1 or 2 for them to work the quirks out. just my opinion though. anyways if love to drive one...when do they start getting put out for sale to people...cuz i havent seen one around here yet.
The guy with the one that I Drove said end of october so knowing that it will be sometime in november. Basically whenever the new 05 Tacomas come out because they are actually changing the body for the 05's. I have also heard that in a year there will be a 300 hp supercharged version of the X-runner.
Umm there never was a Tacoma with a 2.0L. The only options you had with a Tacoma was a 22RE for one year in 95 which is a 2.4L and then after that your options were a 2.4L 2rzfe 4 cylinder, a 2.7L 3rzfe 4 cylinder and a 3.4L 5vzfe V6. the 22RE is a SOHC and the other three are all DOHC.
