Soooo happy with this purchase. Space for 3 growing boys on long trips, ease of towing large RV trailer, budget, and safety were our main criteria for this purchase. We custom ordered a Grade (which is exceptionally equipped for a base model). Love it, love it, love it! Get 16-18 MPG when not hauling, much better than the 12-14 on my last Ford F-150 Crew. Really wanted head restraints and shoulder belts in all 3 rear seats for safety. Leave it to Toyota to also provide the only front bench seat with foldable middle seat (for armrest) or passsenger seat that also has shoulder belt and head restraint.
Towing is a dream, much more secure and stable than the Ford also. Love the automatic rear window too. Highly recommend all the way around. Also, the rear seat slide forward if you want to recline, or back for additional leg & cargo space. Huge interior, most spacious truck available! Seats 6.
Vinyl/ non-carpeted floor. What's with all these trucks and SUVs for that matter with plush carpeting? We get D-I-R-T-Y when we play... would like a floor I could hose out after the kids and dog leave their mess.
