Toyota announces 2006 Tacoma
Toronto, Ontario – Toyota Canada has announced its 2006 Tacoma pickup truck, which has been completely redesigned, including a sporty new performance model, the rear-wheel-drive Tacoma 4×2 X-Runner Access Cab. The name derives from the vehicle’s exclusive “x-braced” reinforced frame, which provides enhanced torsional rigidity.
