Toyota kills-off the Tacoma

America consumes more trucks per year than any on earth. We’re a land of and we like vehicles that can us get the job done. The big, brawny F-150 has been America’s vehicle for decades, but there are people that don’t quite as much ‘truck’ to get the job For them, Toyota created the Tacoma, and it’s been the midsize pickup category for some time. From fleet trucks to luxuriously off-roaders, buyers can choose many versions of Toyota’s truck. Unfortunately though, has just announced that one of its flavors won’t be returning for So we must bid farewell to the Toyota X-Runner- the hot little sport that you’ve probably heard of.

Named for a special x-shaped brace, the Tacoma X-Runner a lot more to the table than a body kit and big wheels.

So they’re dropping it the Tacoma lineup after 8 on the market. Buyers are however, up more rugged special like the Tacoma TRD Baja which allow drivers to a gutsy Baja experience, for the price of a Ford


The Toyota Tacoma continues to be best-selling small truck, its nearest competitor (the Frontier) almost 3-to-1 in It also outsells its own big brother the and Tacoma sales have jumped over 20% for the year.
