F150 to Tacoma
By Dave L on


2006 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 4dr Access Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Finally got a truck worth writing about. Downsized from the Ford F150 Lariat with the 5.4 liter gas guzzling engine. I did not lose any comfort in the downsize and gained excellent gas mileage. Got 18 MPG on the first tank and 20 MPG the second tank and that included pulling my bass boat. The 4.0 V6 is a stong engine and the ride is just as comfortable as my F150 Lariat. Transmission and Tow package handled pulling my bass boat with ease. Drove through some pretty tough spots while deer hunting w/o four wheel drive and didn't get stuck. I plan to add the bilstein shocks myself for off road use. Don't have one regret in making the switch.

Best Features

Handling and ride is excellent. Composite bed eliminates need for bed or rhino lining.

Worst Features

Side step rails are too high up and close in to be of use. Recommend they lower about 3-4 inches and come away from vehicle another 2 inches to get full use. Add horn feature to remote entry/lock for auiditory confirmation in addition to blinking lights.
