I wanted to trade my 2WD Ranger for a 4WD. Looked at the Tacoma first then Nissan. No question Nissan is a MUCH better truck and value. You get more power and features for less money. The Nissan rides great and feels much more solid than the Tacoma. Styling is great inside and out with great features you are surprised to find. Many debate between these 2 trucks, go Nissan.
