Runabouts were just really, really big shuttles and they could do warp 5, and have torpedo attachments and the like. I remember reading the in TNG technical manual that some shuttles could do Warp 2 or 4 or the like.
Voyager's shuttles managed warp 9 without so much as breaking a sweat (one managed warp 10 twice... but we don't talk about that episode). I guess Starfleet lumped Picard with some obsolete models
Which is why Voyager was stupid. For a shuttle to operate at Warp 9 without a meaningful warp core is stupid.
