Toyota Tacoma X-Runner Concept SEMA 2023
During the early 2000s, sport trucks were all the rage, but interest in them slowly dwindled, that is until the Toyota Tacoma X-Runner Concept landed at SEMA 2023. Aside from its sporty looks, this pickup truck packs a twin-turbocharged i-FORCE 3.4L V6 producing 421 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of peak torque.



A Tundra solid axle with 4.30:1 final drive, an electronic locking differential that splits the torque to the rear wheels, and a custom side exhaust exits just below the rocker panel finishes off the performance modifications. Unlike the production model, this concept had its overall track width increased by just over 3 inches and the frame strengthened to accommodate the chassis modifications and engine. On the suspension side, there’s a Tundra air-suspension to, lengthened upper / lower arms up front, a set of custom-valved, 2.5-inch Bilstein aluminum bodied shocks with remote reservoirs at each corner, and one-off Lacks Enterprises 21×9.5-inch carbon fiber wheels wrapped inMichelin 285/45R21 Sport Tires.

On the heels of the Tacoma launch, we wanted to showcase the diverse possibilities of the new truck’s architecture. The TGNA-F platform allows us to efficiently build something this cool in a fraction of the development time it would normally take. A project like this is why you get into the automotive business,“ said Sheldon Brown, Chief Engineer, Toyota Motor North America.
