    So I was at the dealership last weekend trying buy a new X and trade in my 05. They couldn't find a 2011 in all of TX and the surrounding states so they suggested I just order a 2012. Apparently when they called Toyota they were told that the X-Runner has been discontinued. They claimed it was due to slow sales. Granted this is coming from a salesman but does anybody have any idea if this is true? I sure as hell hope not. I was looking forward to seeing the redesigned X.

    The Toyota salesman I talked to when I started lookin' didn't even KNOW what an XRunner was. He kept tryin' to get me in a PreRunner!

    Wait...there's more, THEN he said that "Toyota doesn't make trucks anymore." No lie. I turned around and walked away while he was still talking.

    Don't believe the hype. :rolleyez:

    also, i can't remember who it is off the top of my head, but someone on here works at the factory and said he's seen a '12 X first hand but couldn't take pics and show it off before it's released

    2009 was the last year canada got the runner due to too low of sales like the dealer I bought mine from had a br one that sat there for good year and a half before it sold very few people in canada want a 2wd sport truck cause theyre afraid of driving it in winter:thumbdown:

    dude i've seen the 2012 XR in black at one of the dealerships here, that guy is full of crap. I will go by there this weekend and if its still there I"ll snap some pics for you guys, and my wife test drove a TRD Sport and yeah the radio in the new one is friggin tits but still dont think the truck was worth the 34k price tag.
