2011 TOYOTA TACOMA X-RUNNER RTR
Toyota Tacoma X-Runner RTR (Ready to Race) high-performance SEMA project truck Tuesday which is today at Pomona Raceway in Southern California. The street performance with the full-size Tundra’s mighty 5.7-liter V-8.
Then it ups the ante by bolting on Toyota Racing Development hardware, including a supercharger and intake kit. The end result is a 504-horsepower, 550 pounds-feet of torque hero truck that’s expected to be piloted to quarter-mile times in the 11-second range.
The 5.7-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission have been installed in the Tacoma without a single calibration change, Williams said. The engine still thinks it’s working in a full-size pickup, not a 3,920-pound dragster. The X-Runner RTR weighs only about 150 pounds more than a stock X-Runner.
The stock rear brakes and the 15-inch steel wheels are the same that come with the base Tacoma, though they’ve been narrowed to 4.5 inches wide in front and widened to 10 inches in the rear to accommodate the massive Goodyear Eagle Dragway slicks needed for maximum traction at launch.
2011 FORD F-150
Ford F-150 pickup trucks supported 3.7-liter V6 that now serves as the base powerplant. With sturdy body style and also supported a great power, brought Ford into a reliable pickup truck category.
As Ford has announced that the 302-horsepower 3.7 will serve up 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 on the highway in rear-wheel drive models, the latter figure making it the most fuel-efficient full-size pickup on the market. Stepping up the next rung to the 5.0-liter V8 will get you 360 horses and a fine 15 city, 21 highway EPA fuel economy rating, another best in class figure.
