2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.7L 4cyl 4A)
I have owned a number of Toyota pickups in my life, and this one is typical... that's a good thing. The new 06 Tacoma base is a strong runner, lots of low end torque, and when the rpms go up, it really pulls hard. The 2.7 is so much stronger than the 2.4 liter, and the good thing is that the fuel mileage is about the same... what a deal! Interior is much more comfortable, even with the bench seat. It actually has side bolsters that hold the passengers from sliding around hard corners. The dash now has a full set of nicely appointed guages. Hey, there is no need for a bed liner since the composite bed takes care of that. Yep, another typical Toyota, high quality, great performance and price.
New supportive bench seats. Standard full guages. More powerful 4 cylinder engine with the same fuel mileage. Typical Toyota quality and reliability.
I would lose the "low tire pressure" idiot light set up.
