    The only v6 powered 5lug 2nd gen Taco is the xRunner. Manual transmission only on the xRunner, auto with v6 has never been an option on the 5 lug, just like manual with v6 has never been offered on the prerunner.

    Ok, I stand corrected on the manual v6 prerunners on 2nd gen. Seems it has been an option on accesscabs, but Toyota is so screwy with how they only sell certain model configurations in certain regions. I was looking all over for a new prerunner with a manual in 2011 and couldn't find one anywhere and the dealers I talked to told me the option was dropped at the end of 2010. I ended up with a 2011 5 lug manual as a result. Now I'm driving a 5.7 4x4 Tundra with 6 speed auto... Go figure.
