2008 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Access Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
Nice truck. Reliable, quiet. 4 cyl has enough power 95% of the time. I don't tow loads. Manual transmission helps with both power and gas mileage. Access doors are just right. Don't need the silly looking full rear doors.
Quiet, comfortable, almost carlike ride. Good Gas mileage (for a 4wd truck--23 mpg lifetime). Plastic bed won't rust.
The only 'improvement' relates to the upsizing of the Tacoma nameplate. Toyota should go back to the pre-2004 size of truck, and make all of them hybrids. 35 mpg, please.
