    Went to the dealer today to price a 2012 Tacoma Access Cab V6, TRD Sport and they could not confirm the Superchargers availability for 2012...Can anyone one confirm if the supercharger is going to be available for the 2012 and when? Its the only reason I am interested in the Tacoma so if not available will have to move on...:confused:

    The dealer would know more. Have you tried contacting TRD?

    The engine is essentially the same except for the addition of an air injection pump and I think an EGR valve as well. I don't know how this will affect comparability.

    Dealer was clueless...shows up on the website as an option for 2012, but parts department could not find it for a 2012.

    Well if the makers of the supercharger said no new info then I highly doubt anyone on here knows more. Sorry man. You will just have to wait it out.

    I went through the same thing with my 2012 order. After talking to the parts guy at the dealership, I learned that the supercharger is always available a bit after the new model year. He said in 2011 it was months after the new trucks were available before he saw the parts arrive. So I will just drive the truck stock until the 2012 SC is out and then make a decision. I think I will actually appreciate the SC more this way.

    Yeah heard something similar to that from one dealer but thought they would be able to at least confirm the SC is coming, couldn't afford to buy the tacoma then learn that there will be no SC or it won't be available for years later....

    Kinda picky in my cars choices need a car that goes from 0-60 in less than 7.0 sec, is reliable meaning japanese or korean, less than 40,000 dollars, has more than 8.0 inches of ground clearance, and is not as big as house or weigh as much lol, that leaves two choices

    Subaru Forester Turbo
    Toyota Tacoma SC

    Family already has two 2010 Subaru Forester XT's its a great car only thing lacking over Tacoma is less ground clearence (8.9 inches) and no low range, car is unstoppable in snow though, and super quick.

    Realistically you should not worry about speed. Are you trying to be fast then the neighbor or something?

    Did you use a real measuring instrument or did you count in your head?

    Is this just in case you have to make a last minute run to Taco Bell or something?

    I don't understand why you would have a need for a certain speed...when you're two choices are a Subaru Forester and a Tacoma...

    Well I'm not asking for a professional time. Some people just like to count in their head so the time is way off. I'm going to have to time myself using my SG next time I get on the freeway.:D
