    Yeah they really should offer the TD here, but it wasn’t designed for US emissions.

    But like someone above posted, throw enough money at it and you can have one, with all genuine Toyota parts

    Chase got a new Tacoma V6 automatic. I think it’s a 17 and the first thing he did was pull all the suspension off of it and replace it it rides pretty good.

    Just as a point of note: The Toyota Tacoma and Tundra, as well as the Honda Ridgeline have composite type beds. That means, mounting a scooter lift, or crane, is not possible in any of those vehicles. A metal type bed is required for mounting of those units. A trailer hitch mount for ramp type transport of a scooter is still an option for those vehicles that can be fitted with the hitch.

    A Colorado is what it will be for me.

    Thanks to all that passed along info. and insight.

    morning, this is an apple and oranges conversation.
    I've had 4 ford rangers. never had a problem. general
    maintenance. now I've had 5 gmc's. one of the best trks
    around. general maintenance. gmc builds trks.
    I had a 2010 F-250 fully loaded. loved the trk,
    but the front ends on will cause problems.
    will have to put a damper shock on the steering rod
    in the front end. justme gbot tum

    @Byrd666 Per the fanboy thread, I feel obliged, though somewhat hesitant to interject because of thread drift, to suggest the Jeep Gladiator. Does not have a composite bed and is pure American badass (IMHO), :cool:.

    Having said my fanboy peace, the Colorado seems to be a good truck unless you haul a trailer. A GOOD friend of mine recently hauled a 4Klb trailer out west with a Colorado diesel. He had the truck for about six months prior with no issues. He has always been a full-size guy, Ram 2500+, Cummins, Chevy trucks of all flavors for several years.

    The Colorado, in his opinion, does not do pulling.

    Normal OPS, it’s probably fine. For your needs, it seems more than adequate.

    My 2015 Tacoma 4x4 is a manual 6 speed and has the 4.0 engine. It is pretty awesome.

    Dunno. Wasn't looking for a '16, was looking at NEW. As in 2019 or 2020 models

    Composite bed? Can't call it a truck if it has a composite bed. Even aluminum is really pushing it.

    Tundras have the steel beds. Tacomas have the composite beds starting in model year '05 or '06.
