It’s not unusual for dealer groups to offer a specialty package on a vehicle feature after market parts. For the last few years, the 176 dealerships that make up Southeast Toyota Distributors (SET) have offered extreme sports package (XSP) variants of cars and trucks for buyers in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and North and South Carolina.
SET recently introduced the 2017 Tacoma XSP and 2017 Tundra XSP, each featuring a unique list of equipment geared toward a buyer who they say wants to pair functionality with a customized image.
The 2017 Tacoma XSP starts life as a Tacoma SR5 (starting MSRP of $26,405). It is powered by either a 2.7-liter four-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 engine. Rear-wheel drive is standard. Part-time four-wheel drive is available.
On the exterior, the Tacoma XSP features color-keyed pocket fender flares with rivets, a black laser-cut aluminum grille, black emblem overlays with tailgate insert, chrome exhaust tip, red front brake caliper covers, XSP badging with bedside graphic, two-in-one LED projector fog lights with LED daytime running lights, 17-inch beadlock style gunmetal gray and black wheels with Nitto Terra Grappler G2 tires, and Predator Pro aluminum running boards.
Unlike other XSP models, the Tacoma and Tundra don’t have interior XSP elements.
Purchased individually, the Tacoma XSP accessories would run you $6,099. When purchased as part of the XSP package at the point of sale, the cost is $4,099.
The Tundra gets a slightly different set of accessories as part of its XSP package. Like the Tacoma is includes a chrome exhaust tip, black emblem overlays, XSP badging with bedside graphic, color-keyed pocket fender flares with rivets, and Predator Pro aluminum running boards. Buyers also get a different black powder coated laser-cut grille, black tailgate insert, red front brake caliper covers, LED strip daytime running lights, spray-in bedliner, and 20-inch beadlock style wheels with B.F. Goodrich all-terrain tires.
The Tundra XSP accessories have a MSRP of $7,099 when purchased individually. When bundled together and sold as part of the XSP package, the cost is $5,099.
Each Toyota XSP package is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
Though the Toyota XSP is only available to be sold by Southeast region dealers, buyers from other states are welcome to order the model from one of those dealerships.
