Toyota Tacoma XRunner Coming to Canada This Spring

2014 Toyota Tacoma XRunner

The good news is the 2014 Toyota Tacoma XRunner is coming to Gateway Toyota soon. The bad news is that it will be a limited supply!

The 2014 Tacoma XRunner rolls into Toyota Dealers this March in limited quantities, but it’s already graced the stage at the Canadian International AutoShow earlier this year.

“The Tacoma XRunner is the performance tuned pickup that stands apart from the crowd,” said Larry Hutchinson, Vice President at Toyota Canada Inc. “With unique styling, plus a powerful drive train, the Tacoma XRunner adds distinctive design and maximum performance to the proven capability and value that are hallmarks of every Toyota truck.”

Under the hood, the XRunner has a 4.0 L V6 that delivers up to 236 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque and is coupled to a six-speed close ratio manual gearbox with overdrive, delivering a combined city/highway fuel efficiency of 11.4 L per 100 km.

The 2014 Toyota Tacoma XRunner rides on performance summer radials with exclusive 18” alloy wheels. The drive train transfers all power to the rear wheels, and is enhanced with a limited slip differential.

The Access Cab design seats four in style, featuring front sport seats with water repellant fabric and rear seats that quickly fold away for additional, covered cargo space. The XRunner Access Cab features a sliding rear window, privacy glass, and a bevy of convenience and style features including a pumping stereo system.

For all the XRunner offers inside, it’s the outside that will get you noticed. With its hood scoop, integrated fog lamps, unique 18” aluminum alloy wheels, a full skirt package, chrome tailpipe and LED rear lights, the XRunner is designed to turn heads.

 It’s not all style, though. The six-foot double-walled bed is a versatile cargo hauler, featuring removable tailgate, tie down points and cleats, and a 400 watt 120volt power outlet. Available accessories include a bed divider, bed extender, bed mat and “envelope” style cargo net.

Every Tacoma XRunner also features six airbags plus Active Front Headrests with Whiplash Protection, tether anchor points for child seats and a direct tire pressure monitoring system and tons of other safety features.

Select Toyota Dealers, including Gateway Toyota Scion in Edmonton, Alberta will soon be offering the 2014 Tacoma XRunner to Canadians. Reserve yours quick, because they’ll be going fast.
