2007 Toyota Tacoma V6 4dr Double Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is our fourth Tacoma since introducing Toyota to our "Ford" fleet some years ago. The Toyotas are making the Fords look really bad. I replaced a 2005 SR5 Longbed Doublecab with a new 2007 of the same. The 2005 went 60k with no dealership visits, just normal maintenance. This is a great all around truck. Mileage is good for a 4x4, comfort is very good, power is good, and has plenty of pulling power for most drivers.
Lots of legroom up front, drives like a car, plenty of towing capability, great acceleration, no rattles like the domestic trucks, great on ice/snow, very stylish, climbs well with a load, longbed is almost necessary if you want a useable bed. Plenty of tie down points in the bed.
Add Sirius satellite radio. Put illumination on the 4wd switch.
