Featuring a tough, high-riding appearance that hints at its outstanding power and handling, the 2002 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner boasts the most powerful four-cylinder engine in its class. Its versatility makes it a perfect vehicle that is just as comfortable transporting your family as it is for work-related duties.

Available Models
The 2002 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner is offered in several models - PreRunner Double Cab, PreRunner Xtracab, and PreRunner Regular Cab - affording you the luxury of choice when it comes to selecting the pickup truck that is right for you.

Interior Features
Inside the cabin of the Tacoma 4x2 and 4x4 PreRunner Regular Cab are a tilt-forward fabric-trimmed bench seat with height-adjustable headrests, sculpted door trim with cloth inserts, full carpeting, dual cup holders, and an AM/FM electronically tuned radio with four speakers.

The Tacoma 4x2 and 4x4 PreRunner Xtracab adds defroster-linked CFC-free air conditioning in the six-cylinder model. Other standard features include a 60/40 split front bench seat with height-adjustable headrests, and a fold-out table.

The spacious PreRunner 4x2 and 4x4 Double Cab has a seating capacity of five passengers, tilt steering wheel, front maplights, bucket front seats with adjustable headrests, rear-seat heater ducts, central console with dual covered storage and dual front and rear cupholders, and a 60/40 split folding rear bench seat.

Other basic exterior features listed are a double-walled bed and a black rear bumper.

Xtracab models sport tilt-out rear quarter windows, and Double Cab versions boast black fender flares and washer-linked variable intermittent windshield wipers, with optional sixteen-inch alloy wheels.

The regular two-wheel drive Toyota Tacoma PreRunner is equipped with a 2.4-litre, four-cylinder engine with four-speed automatic transmission that produces a respectable 142 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque - the most powerful four-cylinder in its class.
