So the 2010 Tacoma is a carry over model with engines that now seem like they have primitive technology compared to the rest of Toyota's fleet.
For example pretty much every engine now in Toyota's car & truck engines, with the exception of the Yaris (which still has a 1.5 L with Single VVT-i), has Dual VVT-i and a few other goodies to make them more efficient, powerful, durable (in theory anyways), etc.
For 2010 the new redesigned 4runner, and a few years old FJ cruiser got an upgraded 4.0 with Dual VVT-i that pushes HP to give it about 268 HP and 273 foot pounds of torque. I even saw some inklings of a seperate engine power/tq ratings with supreme gas.
So I'm curious - will the Tacoma at some point get this revised engine and perhaps some of this technology in the 4 cylinder as well? Or is the TAcoma stuck with what is old technology until it gets a redesign somewhere in the next few years possibly?
