Toyota Tacoma X-Runner Gets Tundra Power

|

Updated on

At the upcoming SEMA Show, Toyota will release a unique Tacoma X-Runner pick-up truck called the RTR. Ready to Race is what it stands for, and the tuned Tacoma comes powered by a modified Toyota Tundra 5.7-liter V8 engine. With the addition of a new supercharger and intake kit, the custom truck now delivers an impressive 504 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. It will come with a fabricated steel driveshaft, relocated exhaust behind the passenger rear wheel, and livery inspired tuning by the unique 1968 Dan Gurnery Mercury Cougar XR7-G pony car.

The 95 on the sides represents the first year of the Toyota Tacoma, while the truck also received painted front fender badging that resembles the Tundra’s similar i-Force V-8 emblems. In front of the hood’s air inlet, a tornado logo lays next to the words TRD Supercharged. At the track the new Toyota Tacoma X-Runner tuning project was able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph with a best time of 3.76 seconds, and finished the quarter mile in 12.01 seconds at 116.57 mph.
