2003 Toyota Tacoma S-Runner - Rick Emerson

From beaters to show-winners to drag cars, we don’t discriminate.

Jun 16, 2011

Rick Says: I love fast vehicles and I love trucks — I love fast trucks. I’ve had just about every Toyota Supra available and I like to bring a mountain bike everywhere I go, so this setup just makes sense for me. Best of all, I get a good adrenaline rush going when I drive the truck to the bike races.
We Say: Combining practicality and performance is a win-win combination, and this Tacoma does so in great style. Almost 600 whp in a pickup truck must require a decent amount of skill to drive, but much like most high-horsepower Supras, once this truck hooks is there anything that can keep up with it?

The G-Class has changed a lot since the 460-series debuted in 1979. Today, the G-wagon is now as much an S-Class as it is an off-roader

That's about what the Honda Civic Type R makes and nearly twice as much power as we got from the last Mini JCW GP back in 2012

Created exclusively for Japan, the model gets no powertrain upgrades but looks fantastic enough that we don’t really care.
