Farewell Toyota Matrix and Tacoma X-Runner
Both Models Disappearing For The 2014 Model Year
Toyota announced this week that the Matrix hatchback and Tacoma X-Runner will not be returning for the 2014 model year. The automaker isn't saying why the two models are departing, but we're guessing poor sales were a factor.
While there is no announcement on whether the Matrix will be replaced or not, Toyota has announced a new SR Package for the 2014 Tacoma that will likely offer many of the exterior treatments found on the X-Runner. The SR Package will be available on 2WD Pre-Runner and 4x4 models, and come with a monotone exterior paint scheme and smoked headlights.
