    Thoughts?

    I am pretty attached to my PreRunner Off-Road. I may have to trade in if the V6 X-Runner is disco only because a V8 version is on the chalkboard.

    The title of the thread first word is Rumors.

    I guess you could say I am a jerk and should have titled it, "My wishful thinking" instead of Rumors

    The GMC/Chevy Colorado/Canyon has an optional v8. Not all of them have the I5. Would be nice to have a v8 though.

    I dont feel that they are crapping on you. I think more than anything people got excited over the possibility that there might be an 8 cyl because of the word "rumor". That's why someone wanted a source. People like me would jump on it in a heartbeat if they finally decided to do it.

    But alas...


    No.

    This is a beat up pipe dream that will never come to fruition.

    SILENCE!

    Toyota loves us and wants to be happy!

    They read these forms all the time and ALWAYS give us what we think we need!
