    Not going to show up on our lot for at least another 2 months.
    See pic below...
    Well, we just got our first 2011 Tacoma off allocation today. It's not an X, but rather a 4x4 D-cab Taco. I copied this info and pasted it to MS Word (so I could zoom in on the engine info), and then took a quick screen shot of it-->

    No Duall VVT-i

    I am very surprised they are not putting the new engine into the truck.

    Me too!! I'm also suprised they still have drum brakes:thumpdown: Name one other manufacturer that sells a car or truck for over 30K that has drum brakes! Bet u can't! Shit I can't think of any that are 20K that still have rear drum brakes!

    I mean this is a sport truck with 4 liters and quad cams but only pushes out 236hp! That is soooo F****ING WEAK!! I mean shit, the new chevy Colorado comes with a V8! Our competition knows how to do it.

    This is definitely an unfortunate thing that they're not improving this truck.. 236hp V6 today is crap. Drum brakes in the rear need to disappear. They really need to give the X a good 50-60hp increase to make this thing competitive. Or bring out a V8 option...

    Its weird how every model basically got a facelift of some sort exept the tacoma..

    The new 4runner, sienna, camry, avalon, I think even the rav4 did..

    It will be interesting to see what they do with it

    FYI -

    Had a chance to finally take a look throughout the U.SA. and track down the FIRST 2011 X-Runner. The VERY FIRST 2011 X will be shipped to Capital Toyota in Chattanooga, TN.

    AND -- It is BLACK (not BSP)-->

    does that mean they are expanding the color of the x-runners, or changing the bsp tp black?

    it still has rear drum brakes...toyota never listens to us...:stupid:

    while the RAV4, FJ Cruiser, 4Runner, Sequoia and Tundra all have disc brakes...

    they also could have r&d a whole new suspension setup that is able to use adjustable coil overs front and rear...I mean its a sport truck why not?

    money... its easier and cheaper not to change. I am actually kind of surprised they are still producing x-runners.
    Its still a truck, not a sports car.

    I understand its a money issue when we are talking about suspension but there's no money issue when we are talking about rear disk brakes...

    why would you put disk brakes on small and large SUV's, full size pick ups (Tundra), even family vans like the sienna have rear disk brakes but not the tacoma...which has been around a lot longer then the fj cruiser and sell way more models then the FJ...that's just retarded in my honest opinion...

    Just changing the BSP (0209) to BLACK (0202)
    Well the XR info I just posted ^^ was the ONLY one showing in the whole USA as of right now. Keep in mind though that I can't see what's in Southeast Toyota Region because they are still independently owned; and their inventory is off limits to everyone else.

    I'm sure more will start popping up soon by next allocation.

    I agree with you there. It wouldn't take anything to use rear brake components from something else in the toyota line and making them fit on the tacomas.

    If the FJ cruisers have rear discs whats to stop the 6 lug tacomas from using those components.
