2007 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I drove a Ranger for 14 years prior to this and was happy overall - just needed a new vehicle. The Tacoma is a comfortable, powerful, good-looking truck. My mileage is 18-21 MPG so far. I use my AC quite alot and drive city 60% of the time. Be aware that the brake and gas pedals are very close together in this truck and the steering wheel does not telescope as much as it could. The sound system (basic from factory) is terrible. I would strongly recommend upgrading at the time of sale.
Versatility of seating. Compass and external temperature reading. Comfort of interior. Good storage in cab.
Pedals further apart. Darker tinting on front widows. Correct airflow issues - major wind noise with rear windows down. Better direction of water from roof (blows straight down when driving at speeds over 40 MPH). Bed liner is very slippery, my poor dog nearly tore his claws off trying to hold on.
