Honestly my friend, from nearly 32 TMC enthusiast, Toyota is the most illusion and dream living car maker, don't make yourself depend on any logic to believe that they will do any logic thinking, Toyota always have it's own thinkingI think Toyota recognizes the competition is heating up and will be taking that into account for this new model.
The Ranger+Colorado+Any international competitors are on the offense, while the Taco+hilux are on the defense. "true to form" is going to be an interesting play.I’m cautiously optimistic for the new Tacoma. There’s lots of chat over in the 4Runner page about powertrains. Personally it doesn’t bother me if there’s no V6 as long as the power is there and some improved efficiency. In a recent article Mike Sweers mentions remaining true to form on the Tacoma. A different approach from the Tundra. Just don’t screw up the design and please avoid the tablet on the top of the dash and I’m probably going to be interested. I’m impatient but hopefully we see it by February.
